Minister of Chance

The Minister of Chance Film News

The live action film of Radio Static’s Doctor Who spin-off Minister of Chance is progressing apace… . The highly successful spin-off from Death Comes to Time has been entirely funded by donations and sports an impressive cast including Jenny Agutter, Life on Mars’ Philip Glenister, Tamsin Greig, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann and Julian Wadham as the titular Minister.

It’s free to download from iTunes or at the official Minister of Chance website.

The series has been a huge success winning a 2013 Parsec Award for speculative fiction (that essentially means fantasy fiction – I had to check!) and is in pre-production for a transfer to the screen. Word from Executive Producer Clare Eden indicates filming with Paul McGann will begin next month. The support and enthusiasm behind the project is truly impressive and if you fancy lending a hand Radio Static are opening sponsorship to both fans and businesses ranging from McGann’s taxi to location hire. A list of sponsorhip opportunities are on the website and a range of perks are also available.

The drama expands the Whoniverse in more adult and mystical directions with a mission statement that can best be described as ‘epic’. And intriguingly their location of choice for the movie version is Cheshire – which looks appropriately *epicacious* on the website. Behind-the-scenes events were recently held at locations including Beeston Castle and Chester Roman Amphitheatre. But you can catch up with the production at the London Film and Comic Con on Sunday 6th October at Earl’s Court, London. A host of other Who-related stars will be present including McGann and Billie Piper…

(With thanks to Clare)
