I came across this yesterday which I did not know about. I knew Colin Baker had done Young Indy but not Pertwee. Starts at 1:09:16.

Thanks. That's great! Same here. Never knew about Pertwee's episode, but knew about Colin's though never seen it, and now I've seen that too.

Cheers.

Just a technical question:

I've noticed in the Pertwee episodes that whenever an actor fires a gun in studio, the picture gets all staticy. I'm curious why this happens?


I'm really enjoying Pertwee; his has been the most believable portrayal of the three. His Doctor seems to have drastic mood swings though, from delightful and charming one moment to downright ornery and arrogant the next. It certainly keeps him interesting! I find interviews with him to be delightful.

Roger Delgado was wonderfully debonair and pulls off the Master's single-minded calculating with great panache. The Brigadier is a welcome recurring character, although I'm not entirely sold on Liz or Jo. And I've come to simply adore John Levene as Benton just due to his modern interviews.

Since my last technical question was so popular, I thought I'd post another. big grin

Several episodes feature a very large transparent screen through which you can see background actors, which then seems to "light up" and becomes an opaque blue screen for use as a video monitor effect. What are these magnificent screens made of, and how does it go from being nearly transparent to being an effective blue screen?

I think both your points are because of issues with making drama on video instead of film. The gunfire issue happens a lot. Such noise seems to interfere with both sound and visual equipment in the studio.

Your second point without specific examples sounds like something to do with Classic Who fan's biggest bug bare, our old friend CSO. Colour Separation Overlay (aka Chromakey) was a cheap and efficient (if troublesome quality-wise) way to mix pictures from different sources, such as model work (including monsters) and live action, but also with scenes where folks are talking to each other on scanners etc.

Updated special effects and surround sound mix for Planet of the Daleks.

Five new instalments of Behind the Sofa, featuring Katy Manning, Richard Franklin (Captain Yates) and John Levene (Sergeant Benton), along with 21st century Doctor Who panel Phil Collinson (Producer/Executive Producer), Pete McTighe (Writer) and Joy Wilkinson (Writer).

Looking for Lennie, a documentary investigating the life of director Lennie Mayne.

Keeping up with the Jones’, which sees Katy Manning with Stewart Bevan (Cliff Jones) pay a return visit to the Welsh locations from The Green Death.

Plus: a repeat omnibus of The Green Death unseen since Christmas 1973, rare Panopticon convention footage, Blu-ray trailer, HD photo galleries plus scripts, production files and rare documentation provided as PDFs.

The set will also include Death Of The Doctor, which featured Katy Manning reprising her role as Jo in The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Actor Stephen Thorne has died, age 84. Thorne played Azal in The Dæmons, Omega in The Three Doctors; in the Tom Baker era, the male version of Eldrad.

How sad. He was the only Omega for me. "It is not truuuuuuue"! That booming voice also found it's way into Middle Earth as he played Treebeard in the classic BBC Radio 4 serial. John Rhys Davies' whispering in the Jackson films was a disappointment after that, though I realise that's the differing needs of an all-sound vs a visual medium.
