The Minister Is Coming

It’s been a long wait, but those who have been eagerly anticipating the completed Minister of Chance film won’t have to be patient for too much longer. Post-production, according to an update from those talented people at Radio Static, is just about done with, meaning we can get to enjoy the film version of the Prologue to the audio series very soon.

A highly successful spin-off from the 2001 BBCi (remember them?) Doctor Who audio Death Comes to Time, Minister of Chance has been funded entirely from donations and over the course of its installments has featured a top-notch cast including Sylvester McCoy, Tamsin Greig and Philip Glenister. The new film, shot last autumn, will star Paul McGann and Tim McInnery and is intended to serve as a pre-title sequence for a full filmed version, but will be a complete short film in its own right.

There’s still time to get your name in the credits of what should be a great production by pledging your support at the Minister of Chance website.

About the Author


has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now. When he's not at his job working for a charity in Hull he spends his time following Hull City's fortunes, listening to Bruce Springsteen and wondering why it took thirty years too long for Doctor Who action figures to come along. Favourite stories include the one with the mummies, the one with Mr Sin and the one with the Mona Lisa. Currently listening to: Tom Baker at 80 (Big Finish interview). Reminiscences, religion, tall stories - it's all there. Great stuff.
