Archives Edit

  • Archive Feature: TV: Snakedance (retelling by episode, no credits but a 'Fact File' by Richard Marson)
  • Season Three Flashback - every season of Doctor Who has its good and bad moments, but in the Third Season, the continual behind the scenes changes and instability of the cast led to one of the less satisfactory seasons. The potential for brilliant work was hampered by poor execution or acting. Richard Marson remembers season three.

Interviews / Profiles Edit

  • Travelling Companions - Liz Shaw; not only was she with the Doctor for a very short time, but she was also one of the few companions who did not take a trip in the TARDIS.
  • Paddy's Field! As well as directing four classic Doctor Who stories, Paddy Russell has worked on many well known BBC programmes. Richard Marson talks to Paddy, who trained as an actress, before going into live television in 1951, and later worked as an assistant to the famous Rudolph Cartier.
