Who Talk is back and it's
about time too!
“Thanks to the success of the last two
commentaries for The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear, we
have been able to get back into studio to start plugging the
gaps on other Doctor Who stories which do not have any form of
commentary on them,” says producer Paul W T Ballard. “It
made perfect sense to get Peter Purves into studio to
cover his ‘orphan’ episodes, and we were delighted to get some
brilliant support from a number of other key personnel from the
time too, all of whom have a lot to say about these stories. We
can only hope one day to be able to expand and finish the
stories in their entirety…!”
Joining Peter Purves for this
release is David Graham, Donald Tosh, Clive Doig and
Brian Hodgson as they discuss all three remaining episodes
of The Dalek's Master Plan, Galaxy Four -
Airlock and The Celestial Toymaker - The Final
Test in a collection entitled
Armageddon. Also featured on the release is a
bonus interview with Jeremy Young who started in the
prequel to The Daleks' Master Plan; Mission To The Unknown.
“We have also, rather excitingly, taken
the move to ‘remake’ a commentary for the first time,”
explains Paul. “Some of the original DVD releases, for one
reason or another, didn’t explore all of the available names for
the commentary track, and this was especially noticeable for
The Daemons. So we’ve assembled quite a variety of names
from both sides of the camera to give their thoughts and
memories, and have even given the option of an alternative
version for episode two!”
The new commentary track for
The Daemons features
actors Katy Manning, John Levene, Alec Linstead, David Simeon
and John Owens together with script editor Terrance
Dicks and director's assistant Sue Upton.
“We’re really thrilled to have Toby
Hadoke back on both releases, who does a truly masterful job
moderating,” says Paul. “Moving forward we have some
really exciting plans for Who Talk, but we can only
proceed if you keep supporting them, and buy them officially. So
stay tuned, there’s more to come!”
