  • Sowing the Seeds - The long-awaited video release of The Seeds of Doom has at last brought one of Doctor Who's best-loved six-parters to an appreciative new audience. In 1976, however, the BBC planned a version that we will never see. Edits by Douglas Camfield. Archaeology by Philip Newman.
  • BBV - Nottingham-based do-it-yourself director Bill Baggs has so far released a number of video dramas featuring, amongst others, four Doctors, three companions and two people who work in the Who Shop. Marcus Hearn spent a day at the location of the latest production, Breach of the Peace only to discover it has absolutely nothing to do with Doctor Who.

Interviews / Profiles[]

  • The Real McCoy: Part One - Sylvester McCoy was recently informed - by a letter from a fan - that he was the longest-running of all the Doctors. Three short seasons on television, then years of uncertainty have gradually solidified into the realisation that he is unlikely to play the Doctor again... In a candid interview with Sylvester, Nick Briggs discovers the man, the actor and the Time Lord
  • Out of the Soundhouse - Keff McCulloch was perhaps the last Doctor Who composer to redefine the overall sound of the series. Austen Atkinson-Broadbelt asked the versatile musician about his career, discovering that he got that same old feeling returning to handle Dimensions in Time.
  • Acting the Part - As The Seeds of Doom finally germinates from the flowerbeds of BBC Video's archives, two of the actors involved with the production remember their roles with fondness. Anthony Townsend met up with John Challis while Liam-Michael Rudden tracked down Kenneth Gilbert.
