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.

Cover blurb:


"‘Why did you take your skirt off?’ Because I was told to! JNT said: ‘You have a stomach ache and you take your skirt off.’ So that’s what I did!"

This MYTH MAKERS combines two interviews with SARAH SUTTON; one filmed at Harrison’s Rocks, the main location for CATSROVALVA; the second recorded in a London studio eight years later and featuring some familiar monsters.

SARAH chats to NICHOLAS BRIGGS about working with TOM BAKER, PETER DAVISON, JANET FIELDING and MATTHEW WATERHOUSE. There are also many behind-the-scenes stories about working on DOCTOR WHO.

PETER GRIMWADE — Writer/Director

“If you had twice as much money you’d still want twice as much again."

PETER GRIMWADE started his career at the BBC as a production assistant and worked on three JON PERTWEE DOCTOR WHO stories. He went on to direct DOCTOR WHO in the early 1980s — with LOGOPOLIS and EARTHSHOCK winning major fan awards. He then moved on to writing with MAWDRYN UNDEAD and PLANET OF FIRE which he successfully novelised for Virgin Publishing.

PETER died in 1990, cutting short a promising career. This MYTH MAKERS release is dedicated to him.
