Peter Purves played the First Doctor's companion Steven Taylor from The Chase to The Savages. He also had a small comic role in The Chase as American tourist Morton Dill.
Purves had originally planned to go into teaching, but instead began acting with the Barrow-in-Furness Repertory Company. After leaving Doctor Who, Purves became a regular presenter on the children's magazine programme, Blue Peter. He was one of the longest-serving, lasting from 1967 to 1978. For much of that time, he co-presented with John Noakes and Valerie Singleton and was so closely associated with the programme, especially as the sensible one, that he found the image difficult to shake off afterwards. His subsequent career has mainly been as a presenter, frequently for major dog shows such as Crufts. He was also host of the long-running BBC TV motorbike trials series Kick Start.
He has made cameo appearances as himself in episodes of programmes such as the soap opera EastEnders and the hugely popular sitcom The Office. In recent years, Peter has reprised the role of Steven for a number of Big Finish Productions audio dramas.

Philip founded the Television International Enterprises Archive, a company that searches for lost television. His biggest recovery has been nine Doctor Who missing episodes found in Nigeria, from the serials The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear featuring Patrick Troughton.

TIEA and Philip were working on Project Genesis, cataloguing materials with the Nigerian Television Authority, when the episodes were discovered in a Jos television relay station. The episodes were in good condition considering the environmental conditions and civil unrest, and lost for decades prior to their recovery. He has also successfully recovered content from The Basil Brush Show and The Sky at Night.

Once the BBC realised their archive was incomplete, they hatched a plan to try to find them. In the 1970s, they established the BBC Film and Videotape Library, and named Sue Malden as its first "archive selector". As the head of the library, one of her first acts was to decide what programmes she would actively try to recover. Thanks in part to pressure from Ian Levine and the Doctor Who production office, she made Doctor Who a priority.
She began to piece together what had actually happened to the episodes. Perhaps her most significant achievement was the discovery of two separate libraries. She quickly determined that the BBC's own library of videotaped masters had been entirely and systematically wiped. What was completely unknown to most employees of the BBC was that Pamela Nash had been building up her own library of 16mm telerecordings of the episodes in a separate library at BBC Enterprises. The existence of this second library resulted in the immediate recovery of some episodes — notably the entirety of The Daleks.
While unable to recover every missing episode, nor directly responsible for every successful recovery, it is largely Malden's work which established the framework by which any episodes were recovered at all.

At the age of 14, Graham got his first second-hand audio tape recorder which enabled him to record the sound from his favourite television shows. As his interest in electronics grew, Graham invested in a new machine which allowed him to connect the recorder directly to the inner workings of the television.

As a direct result, Graham recorded and retained over a hundred and fifteen episodes of Doctor Who, sixty of which are now missing from the archives, and in some cases his recordings were superior to those on the original prints. His first crystal-clear audio recordings started with episode eight of The Daleks' Masterplan.

Graham’s recordings were handed to the BBC in 1994 and used on subsequent BBC CD Soundtrack releases as restored by Mark Ayres.

Mark is probably best known to Doctor Who fans for composing incidental music for the Sylvester McCoy stories The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, Ghost Light and The Curse of Fenric. Like most Doctor Who incidental music composers during the 1980s, Mark created the music electronically, principally using digital synthesisers and samplers.
Mark was also involved in the last days of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, cataloguing and archiving their recordings for future use. As part of the BBC's unofficial Doctor Who Restoration Team, Mark has also done much of the audio restoration work for the later VHS Doctor Who releases, as well as the majority of the DVD releases, and all of the "Missing Soundtrack" CD releases since 1999. Mark most recently worked on the new animated production of The Power of the Daleks which has recently been released on DVD and Blu-ray. Additionally, he edited the "Special Edition" of The Curse of Fenric, which restored much footage which was originally cut for time, along with some new special effects and a complete remix of the soundtrack.
