Note:  Second 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 John Leeson interview. Preceded by Volume 1: Janet Fielding / Michael Wisher and followed by Volume 3: The Men from UNIT.

Cover blurb:
This volume of MYTH MAKERS is a very special one indeed. The late Ian Marter, well known as Harry Sullivan from "Doctor Who", talks with Nicholas Briggs about his acting and writing endeavours.

John Leeson was never seen during the time he was most popular on "Doctor Who", but the loss of his voice as the popular K-9 from the program spawned a furious letter writing campaign and a television pilot featuring K-9 and Sarah Jame Smith. Keith Harrison provides an in-depth interview with the man behind the mechanical dog.

Cover blurb:
"Tom Baker said to me one day, 'You obviously write well, what about writing some of the Who novelisations?'"

The late Ian Marter is fondly remembered by Doctor Who fans as the charming, bumbling Harry Sullivan. The man behind the character was equally as likeable, but many more times sharp-witted.

As Nick Briggs and Ian Marter walk and talk their way through locations for Terror of the Zygons, you'll learn of Ian's life as a prolific actor and writer.

This is an extended version of the Myth Makers interview recorded in 1986, incorporating previously unseen footage and with a special introduction written and presented by Ian's close friend Nicholas Courtney.
