Highlights from The Fifth Doctor Panel
This month, fans lucky enough to get tickets were shown a large screen viewing of the Fifth Doctor belter, The Caves of Androzani. It’s a Doctor Who first and last in many ways, the last fifth Doctor story (in chronological order), the first appearance of the Sixth Doctor, the first Doctor Who serial to be directed by Graeme Harper and also the last appearance of Tegan, Turlough, Nyssa and Adric.
Tickets for these screenings have been incredibly hard to get hold of but fret not, because the BFI are releasing the footage from the events and you can now see the panel made up of Peter Davison, Janet Fielding, Sarah Sutton, Matthew Waterhouse and Graeme Harper on the day, reminiscing about the story itself and about their time on Doctor Who.
Highlights from the 20 minute video include Graeme Harper’s recollections about creating the story and Peter Davison’s clear admiration for the directional style that it took as well as the other actors that helped to make it one of the most popular Doctor Who stories ever told.
You can view the full video below; after, you may just want to watch your DVD of The Caves of Androzani…!
