An excellent 80s Doctor Who documentary
2 June 1999 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

This documentary was very popular in the convention circuit in the mid-80s. Again we see interviews with the cast and some of the creators. It does cover American fandom as it was at the time and how Doctor Who was treated within the United States. Even when it uses stock footage or pre-recorded footage from existing interviews it does select well so it's not the same old thing fans have seen in countless other specials.
