At The BBC Volume 3
At The BBC Volume 3

Synopsis

Elisabeth Sladen steps into the TARDIS once again to present another instalment of drama, comedy and behind-the-scenes extracts from the many worlds of Doctor Who
Doctor Who at the BBC combs the avenues of Time and Space for significant spin-off moments from the much-loved TV and radio series. In an exclusive coup, this third volume features a rarely heard ten minute mini-drama starring Jon Pertwee and Elisabeth Sladen. Specially recorded for Glorious Goodwood in 1974, it has never been broadcast and features a host of familiar enemies – including the Daleks!

Elsewhere on this two-disk volume, the radio programme Wavelength meets the cast and production team of The Two Doctors; Nationwide investigates the work of the Radiophonics workshop in 1983; and a group of schoolchildren give their views on the series in Take Two from 1984. The Grumbleweeds enjoy their own exciting adventure in Dr Nobbut-Just; ‘Ann Robinson’ menaces the Doctor in Dead Ringers; and Jane Asher plays the Doctor’s granddaughter in Whatever Happened to Susan Foreman?

Rare interview material includes Frank Bough’s Nationwide encounter with fourth Doctor Tom Baker plus Mary Tamm and Carole Ann Ford), Lalla Ward’s appearance on ”Multi-coloured Swop Shop”, and a mid-Eighties radio interview with Sarah Sutton. There are also features on the brand new Doctor Who, including comments from Russell T Davies and Christopher Eccleston, and even the seal of approval from Michael Grade…

Notes

  • Doctor Who at the BBC Volume 3 was the second release in a series of Doctor Who at the BBC releases featuring made-for-audio features/documentaries released by BBC Audi
  • It was in January 2004 (according to the sleeve notes of Doctor Who at the BBC Volume 2), that BBC Audio launched a plea via the pages of the BBC Cult website, Doctor Who Magazine, SFX, TV Zone and others, for anyone with recordings of Doctor Who radio and TV features between 1963 and the present day to get in touch. The Doctor Who at the BBC series is a collection of such items.
