Cover blurb:
Shot in Liverpool at MONSTERCON, this edition of MYTH MAKERS stars DEBORAH WATLING — better known to 'DOCTOR WHO' fans as VICTORIA WATERFIELD.

Intrepid presenter NICHOLAS BRIGGS follows Deborah's hectic and sometimes hilarious day of on-stage interviews and autograph sessions at this memorable convention.

The pace is fast and furious, but Deborah also finds time to reflect upon her life and career, both in and out of 'DOCTOR WHO'.

Note:  This was the fifth 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 triple release, which also incorporated the Carole Ann Ford and Wendy Padbury interviews. Preceded by Volume 4: Jon Pertwee and followed by Volume 6: Sarah Sutton / Peter Grimwade.

Note:  Titled "Women of the '60s: The Troughton Era" (although the subtitle "The Troughton Era" only appears on the back cover — not on the front cover or spine). This was different to the earlier "Women of the '60s" US release in that it omits the Carole Ann Ford interview — this was later re-released on a separate volume called Women of the '60s: The Hartnell Era.

Cover blurb:
While many of her episodes were lost, intrepid interviewer Nicholas Briggs had no trouble tracking down Deborah Watling, better known to Doctor Who fans as Victoria Waterfield. Shot in Liverpool at Monstercon, Nick follows Deborah through a hectic and sometimes hilarious day of on-stage interviews and autograph sessions. The pace is fast and furious, but Deborah still finds time to reflect on her life and career, both in and out of Doctor Who.

Then, in a rare interview, Wendy Padbury talks about her role as Zoe Herriot in Doctor Who.

No real fan of the series should miss these fascinating interviews, each profiling the career of one of the Women of the '60s.

Cover blurb:
"Derek! He can't say, 'Up your passage Miss Waterfield.' It's rude!"

DEBORAH WATLING portrayed VICTORIA WATERFIELD during PATRICK TROUGHTON's tenure as DOCTOR WHO. Famous for the practical jokes that went on behind the camera, this era produced some classic DOCTOR WHO stories and VICTORIA became one of the most popular of the Doctor's companions.

This MYTH MAKERS features material shot at MONSTERCON in Liverpool ten years ago, together with an interview recorded on location during the shooting of DOWNTIME, the DOCTOR WHO spin-off drama in which DEBORAH re-creates the part of VICTORIA after more than twenty five years!

DEBORAH and her father JACK WATLING (Professor Travers) chat to NICHOLAS BRIGGS about working together again and we feature behind the scenes material from DOWNTIME.

And of course there's the odd Yeti around!
