A specially extended video edition of the documentary filmed to mark the 30th anniversary of the long-running BBC Science Fiction serial, "Doctor Who". Linked by specially filmed footage featuring members of the cast from the series and various old foes & monsters, the show is explored in depth and there are interviews with members of the cast & production team plus input from experts, critics and fans, as well as plenty of (often rarely seen) archive footage and clips from the series.Written by
All allies of the Doctor beware. The daleks have not been defeated, we shall return!
We shall return, we shall return.
[the camera pulls back to reveal hundreds of daleks and dalek hovercrafts]
Emperor Dalek, Daleks:
WE SHALL RETURN! WE SHALL RETURN! WE SHALL RETURN!

This production was initially aired (in the U.K. on the BBC and in the U.S. on PBS stations) in a one-hour form called simply "Thirty Years In The Tardis" in 1993. Bits and pieces from various archival sources (including everything between Parts One and Two and between Parts Two and Three, which in the original PBS showings were pledge drive breaks) were carefully edited in to bring it to its video edition running time.

I have seen documentaries on DOCTOR WHO in the past but to be honest they`re almost always disappointing at best . Not so with with 30 YEARS IN THE TARDIS which is the greatest documentary ever to have featured British telefantasy`s best loved icon . What I absolutely loved about this tribute was seeing stuff I thought I`d never see like a TV advert for ice lollies featuring the Doctor or some 8mm silent film footage of William Hartnell opening an air show or the winner of a " Build your Doctor Who monster " or what a Dalek playsuit looks like on a young boy . This is an absolutely amazing documentary for casual fans or diehard ones like myself . The fact that 30 YEARS IN THE TARDIS was made by fellow fans really shines through . Take for example the opening of the young boy on his way home and sees a post box suddenly transform into a Dalek . I can testify that as a child this also happened to me . As a child dustbins often did the same , and bollards . Yes I know that sounds extremely sad , but in a mundane cynical cruel world of adulthood I really miss the days when I looked forward to seeing the next DOCTOR WHO episode on a Saturday teatime.
Thank you to everyone involved in making this great documentary
