Last month, Doctor Who at the BBC Volume 8: Lost Treasures was released. This is a 2-CD set of rare and hard-to-find radio programme interviews with many important people involved in Doctor Who‘s production through the years.
From the BBCShop description of Volume 8:
“A brand new volume of Doctor Who-related interviews and features from the BBC archives, encompassing 50 years of the nation’s favourite sci-fi adventure series. This journey through the archives features interviews with several of the actors to have played the Doctor, including Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith, as well as past companions, producers, sound designers and many more.”
The featured companion clips include Lalla Ward, Nicholas Courtney, Karen Gillan, and Jenna Coleman. Behind-the-scenes interviewees include the legendary Delia Derbyshire, Pennant Roberts, and recent showrunners Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat.
Each CD runs about an hour and promises to have some material almost as exciting as the recently uncovered Patrick Troughton TV episodes:
“Much of the material has not been heard since its original broadcast, and several items came to light following an appeal to the public for off-air home recordings.”
Written by David Darlington and presented by Louise Jameson, Lost Treasures has an RRP of £13.99 and is now available in old-fashioned bricks and mortar stores – but you might get the best price buying from Amazon for just £7.37.
If you’re not already feeling nostalgic with the 50th anniversary soon approaching, these CDs would definitely seem to be a good place to start!
