An extra very much worth looking at.
20 October 2004 | by answerfoxSee all my reviews

This extra little retrospective is found on the Doctor Who: Earthshock DVD. It basically talks to just about everyone who was involved in making decisions (and also the actors) for Doctor Who at that time. They talk about how some of the costuming was going, and (more entertainingly) how some of it was failing in the middle of filming. In this day and age we are lucky to be able to see a full retrospective from the most creative Cult/Sci-Fi show around, when it was straining to do it's best with it's limitations (time, budget, budget, technology, and did I mention budget?). It's well worth taking the half hour or so to watch, and is really very interesting, ranging from the deadly serious to the funny little behind-the-scenes quirks. A must watch for any Doctor Who fan.
