51 years since we last saw him travelling in the TARDIS – we at Indie Mac User have caught up with Classic Who Icon Peter Purves to talk about all things Doctor Who and life since departing the classic Sci-Fi show.
“It breaks my heart that, although the full original audio exists, not a frame of the actual show remains”
Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)
As this is my first review of an ‘early adventure’; I’ll talk briefly about this range.
It’s been really good to see classic doctors revived and companions brought back in the ‘early adventures’. There were some really nice companion chronicles, but Big Finish doing full cast audio adventures have slightly ruined me for narration when we can hear a story with a full cast acting it out. These early adventures are mostly acted out with a full cast, with occasional narration to set the scene. The companions like Frazer Hines as the Second Doctor and William Russell as the First do such a good job you feel like they are there and I’m really glad they made the brave decision to do early Doctors replacing the actors we miss so much.
We’d like to wish all our readers and friends around the world a very Merry Christmas…however you chose to spend it. 2014 has been a busy year for us and we can’t wait to share some of the exciting articles and events we will be bringing you in 2015.
