Cover blurb:
PERPUGILLIAM BROWN may well be one of the longest names an assistant has had in 'DOCTOR WHO'. Better known as PERI, the Doctor's current companion has proved enormously popular with fans of the BBC TV series.

Much of the credit for this must go to NICOLA BRYANT who is the subject of this issue. Interviewed by NICHOLAS BRIGGS, NICOLA tells how it has felt starting her career in the worlds' most popular Science Fiction programme.

Note:  This was the ninth of 17 Myth Makers videos released in the US, which confusingly followed a different numbering scheme to the original British releases. To add further confusion, this was a double release, which also incorporated the Michael Craze interview. Preceded by Volume 8: Tom Baker and followed by Volume 10: Colin Baker.

Cover blurb:
As Peri, the first and much maligned American companion on DOCTOR WHO, lovely NICOLA BRYANT had to face everything from lovesick psychopaths to Cybermen and Sil... Now she has to face the greatest menace of all: Nicholas Briggs!

In the second Myth Makers we follow Nicholas Briggs as he accidentally transports himself to a deserted stretch of country road... Alone and weary, he makes his way to the local pub.. Once there, he is served by none other than MICHAEL CRAZE, Ben from the early days of DOCTOR WHO. Take the chill off and listen to stories about the early days of Doctor Who as MICHAEL CRAZE reveals his experiences!

Enjoy this special double-volume of Myth Makers.

Cover blurb:
"The phone rang and they said, 'Can we have your comments on the death of DOCTOR WHO?'."

Undoubtedly, NICOLA BRYANT's portrayal of PERPUGILLIAM BROWN has become one of the most popular characters in the history of DOCTOR WHO.

When NICHOLAS BRIGGS first talked to NICOLA in 1985, DOCTOR WHO had been cancelled (for the first time) and its future was uncertain.

Now, eleven years later, they met again to discuss her last season in the programme and life after DOCTOR WHO.

Both interviews are combined in this MYTH MAKERS, giving us a fascinating insight into NICOLA's evolving life and career.
