I came across a brilliant BBC Doctor Who documentary online recently called "More Than 30 Years In The TARDIS” that aired on BBC One in 1993 to celebrate 30 years since the series began. An extended 90-minute version was then released on VHS in 1994 and shown on UK Gold in 1997, and I thought I’d share it with those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of watching it yet!
The documentary looks at how the series began, the production, impact of British culture, and talks to the likes of Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Barry Letts, Terrance Dicks, Terry Nation, Philip Hinchcliffe, Douglas Adams, Elisabeth Sladen (alongside daughter Sadie, dressed as Sarah Jane), Nicholas Courtney and many other writers, producers, companions and some critics.
Here’s Part 1 of 9 of the doc – unfortunately (at the time of writing) Parts 4 & 9 have been taken down by the BBC.
"More Than 30 Years In The TARDIS” is still available to buy online on VHS at…
> Amazon.co.uk – £10.92 (and MUCH lower for ‘Used’)
> Amazon.com – $4.75 in ‘Used’
…although I’m hoping for it to be included as a special extra feature on a classic series 2|entertain DVD.
What are your thoughts on this?
