It’s a wonderful thing in the world of Doctor Who, when a good idea becomes something more than anyone could have imagined.
Torchwood, UNIT, Jago and Litefoot, Sarah Jane Smith and K-9 have all had spin offs in one format or another based on their appearance within Doctor Who. But The Minister of Chance is a very special kettle of fish indeed!
Based on the adventures of a character first introduced in the BBC Doctor Who audio drama Death Comes To Time, the Minister was a Time Lord like the Doctor and saw the terrible events that led to the sSeventh Doctor’s apparent death.
The Minister of Chance continues this story and the first two episodes are now available as a free download for you to enjoy! You can also enjoy interviews with the cast by visiting The Minister of Chance YouTube channel; you’ll be able to see talks with Jenny Agutter, Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred and Renly Baratheon. These are available at www.shadowlocked.com.
A third episode is currently being financed via IndieGoGo, which offers a range of perks from special edition MoC tees & signed scripts to advance copies of the episode and answerphone messages from Sylvester McCoy or Paul Darrow.
