WHO TALK LAUNCH ANNOUNCEMENT
New Commentaries for The Enemy of the
World and The Web of Fear
decades missing from the archives, the return of The Enemy of
the World and The Web of Fear in 2013 was a highlight
of Doctor Who's fiftieth anniversary year. The rapid release of
these stories sadly
meant that their DVDs were devoid of any extra material,
something which is highly valued by fans.
Enter Who Talk! With the help of the stars and crew of
stories, and under the expert guidance of Doctor Who expert
Toby Hadoke, Who Talk provides commentaries on all
twelve of these previously missing episodes, over two CD
releases, or on digital download. Simply play the audio track in

supporting the project and buying copies, rather than
bootlegging them," advises Paul. "Were there to be any
future returns, and I'm sure we're all hopeful of that, then we
would want to be able to look at repeating the exercise because
it's a hugely culturally important one."
As episode three of The Web of Fear remains stubbornly
absent from the vaults, the commentary is provided by SUE
MALDEN; one of the key figures in Doctor Who archive history,
who gives an excellent insight into the BBC policies of wiping
and archiving material, as well as the world of missing
television in general.
These two releases are now
available, you can purchase them direct from Who Talk at a
discounted price of £10.99 each (RRP £12.99) or via download
Please note: These commentaries
contain no BBC copyrighted elements and do not feature audio
from the episodes themselves.
