In 1984 a group of DOCTOR WHO fans began a project which would continue for another decade and eventually lead to much greater things.
AUDIO VISUALS — ADVENTURES IN TIME AND SPACE was a non-profit exercise intending to create full-cast audio DOCTOR WHO drama. Many of the people involved would later be responsible for the officially licensed DOCTOR WHO range for BIG FINISH PRODUCTIONS.
This book explores those audio tapes and their production. Illustrated throughout, it looks into the genesis of the project, its casting and the technology involved. From the pilot play in 1984 right up to the acclaimed season finale Justyce in 1993 and beyond, no stone is left unturned. With interviews from all the key players — including founders and producers (Gary Russell and Bill Baggs), the Doctor himself (Nicholas Briggs and Stephen Payne), the companions (Richard Marson, Nigel Fairs, Patricia Merrick and Heather Barker), the writers (Andy Lane, Jim Mortimore and Steve Bowkett) and the supporting cast (Anthony Townsend, Nabil Shaban, Amanda Hurwitz, Duncan Lamb, John Ainsworth, Deborah Marson, Linda Baker and Shaun Ley) — it also features original artwork, script extracts, an overview of the unproduced fifth season, comic strip appearances, BIG FINISH remakes, books and coverage of the unfinished video project SCARECROW CITY.
This exhaustive work is the definitive guide and tribute to the very best in DOCTOR WHO fan creativity.
