A documentary celebrating 30 years of the BBC TV series "Doctor Who", with specially filmed interviews with leading cast members, producers, directors & writers, and some behind the scenes archive footage. Written by
Not a good start off video but good for veteran fans.
This was the first video I purchased after watching my very first episode, The Enemy Within starring Paul McGann in 1996 and so the first programme I had seen on Doctor Who. I found the video a bit confusing at times when they were talking about the whole changing of the programme with Tom Baker leaving but since reading up on the series and now being a nine year fan, find this video more informative to watch now than back then. If I was to recommend to anyone who want's to purchase a video or watch a documentary on Doctor Who try getting hold of a Doctor Who Night video, which you can only find on recorded cassette sop very rare, but Doctor Who: More than thirty years in the Tardis is a good start. I agree with others who have commented on this video that seeing home footage of lost episodes or generally old ones with deceased stars of the show like Roger Dalgardo, Patrick Trouhgton and Jon Pertwee was a huge benefit over not having any of the BBC archive footage. I was not really put out by what Peter Davidson was saying because the sets and props were crap, but that's only if you look at the effects that evolved years after his era. I loved Sophie and SDylvester talking about there muck-ups and the music that gave it a sad felling, but at the same time was a very honest video which is one of the best in my not very big but average collection.
