Note:  This was the sixth 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 Peter Grimwade interview. Preceded by Volume 5: Women of the 60s and followed by Volume 7: Myth Runner.

Cover blurb:
As Nyssa of Traken, SARAH SUTTON was described as a sort of fairy princess, a sweet looking girl who lived a tragic life. Her stepmother was killed by the Master, her father's body stolen to keep the dying Time Lord alive and her planet destroyed. More than anyone, she had a good reason to stay with the Doctor: she truly had nowhere else to go. Arriving at the end of the Tom Baker era, she helped put the series on track with Peter Davison. An informative interview giving viewers a look at the changing of a series. Shot at the locations used for the story 'Logopolis'.

From in front of the camera to behind it...
Writer/director PETER GRIMWADE has been with the series for a number of years. As one of the creative forces behind 'DOCTOR WHO' he has created hours of entertainment for fans of the series around the world. Nicholas Briggs takes us behind the scenes and gives us the views of one person responsible for what we see!

Cover blurb:
Sarah Sutton joined Doctor Who in 1981. As Nyssa, the beautiful daughter of Consul Tremas of Traken, she joined forces with the fourth Doctor and remained with him after his regeneration.

You'll also meet Peter Grimwade who started out as a production assistant, and eventually became a writer and director for Doctor Who (although he never actually directed an episode he wrote).

Join Myth Makers as we travel the universe to interview the actors, actresses and behind-the-scenes people who have helped bring Doctor Who to life.

Note:  Extended edition.

Cover blurb:
"Everyone brings this up, 'Why did you take your skirt off?' Basically because I was told to. The producer said, 'You have a stomach ache and you take your skirt off.' So that's what I did!"

So, for starters, we know why Nyssa lost her skirt, but why did Peter Davison ask Sarah Sutton for a Big Mac and milkshake?

This Myth Makers combines two interviews with Sarah, one shot in 1986 at Harrison's Rocks, the main location for the story Castrovalva and the second, recorded in our studios eight years later, features more revelations and some very familiar Doctor Who monsters...

There is a main course of recollections about working on Doctor Who, memories of Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Janet Fielding and Matthew Waterhouse, as well as numerous behind the scenes anecdotes and stories.

To finish, we discover why Sarah wanted to fly in a hot-air balloon, the impact of having a young daughter has on her life, and we learn precisely why she sent Nicholas Briggs rock climbing!
