After Doctor Who left television screens in 1989, it seemed that everyone was interested in bringing the show back to TV – except the BBC.
Among the stories circulating in the press, Doctor Who Magazine reported in 1991 on claims that an independent production company had made pilots for a new series, starring an actor called David Burton as the eighth incarnation of the Doctor.
But how true was this? And where is Burton now?
The clip above – featuring contributions from current and former DWM editors Tom Spilsbury and Gary Russell and David Burton himself – is taken from Dr Forever! Lost in the Dark Dimension, an excellent extra which can be seen in full on Doctor Who: Inferno Special Edition.
