Seminal work on Graham Williams time as producer
18 December 2008 | by Tractator29See all my reviews

Ed Stradling gets back to form with a seminal piece of work covering the tenure of the late Graham Williams as producer of Doctor Who.

Like Ronnie Bleasdale I like to be informed in DVD extras on Doctor Who. This extra does it in spades. There is so much to it that it really merits a second viewing. This is fascinating and the interviews come thick and fast.

This documentary really plays to Stradlings strengths, covering a top level issue and giving a detailed overview of a subject rather than an introspective on a particular story. Written by jobbing Big Finish actor Nicholas Pegg this is an affectionate look at a tumultuous era in the shows history and does it so well.
