Merchandise Dragonfire is one of two serials featured in the Doctor Who: Ace Adventures boxset

Friends of Who!

Friends to this day are three of the actors featured in the 1987 Doctor Who serial Dragonfire and they have been reminiscing about the time they shared on set in Friends of Who – a bonus 15 minute feature not available on the forthcoming Ace Adventures DVD boxset.

Their names and faces may be familiar to anyone who watched British TV in the 1970s to the 1990s, and it is great to see that Tony Selby (Sabalom Glitz), Tony Osoba (Kracauer) and Shirin Taylor (er, “customer”) shared happy memories of Sylvester McCoy, director Christopher Clough and the fantastically cheap sets.

Produced by DMS UK Ltd, (for what purpose we’re not quite sure right now), watch out for a priceless moment where Tony Osoba confuses everyone with a reference to Blink

The Doctor Who: Ace Adventures DVD boxset is released on Monday, features Dragonfire and The Happiness Patrol and can be pre-ordered now from Amazon for £19.97.

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    Loving this! What a bunch of legends. Would have loved to have seen this on the DVD, none of these guys got interviewed, which is a shame. Top stuff!
