WHO TALK announces two brand new commentaries now released!

  • Day of Armageddon brings together "orphaned" Hartnell episodes featuring Peter Purves!

  • A Brand New commentary for The Daemons featuring Terrance Dicks, Alec Linstead, David Simeon & others!

  • Special Edition Bundle also available - autographed covers and bonus disc with exclusive material!


Who Talk is back and it's about time too!


“Thanks to the success of the last two commentaries for The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear, we have been able to get back into studio to start plugging the gaps on other Doctor Who stories which do not have any form of commentary on them,” says producer Paul W T Ballard. “It made perfect sense to get Peter Purves into studio to cover his ‘orphan’ episodes, and we were delighted to get some brilliant support from a number of other key personnel from the time too, all of whom have a lot to say about these stories. We can only hope one day to be able to expand and finish the stories in their entirety…!”


Joining Peter Purves for this release is David Graham, Donald Tosh, Clive Doig and Brian Hodgson as they discuss all three remaining episodes of The Dalek's Master Plan, Galaxy Four - Airlock and The Celestial Toymaker - The Final Test in a collection entitled Day of Armageddon. Also featured on the release is a bonus interview with Jeremy Young who started in the prequel to The Daleks' Master Plan; Mission To The Unknown.


“We have also, rather excitingly, taken the move to ‘remake’ a commentary for the first time,” explains Paul. “Some of the original DVD releases, for one reason or another, didn’t explore all of the available names for the commentary track, and this was especially noticeable for The Daemons. So we’ve assembled quite a variety of names from both sides of the camera to give their thoughts and memories, and have even given the option of an alternative version for episode two!”


The new commentary track for The Daemons features actors Katy Manning, John Levene, Alec Linstead, David Simeon and John Owens together with script editor Terrance Dicks and director's assistant Sue Upton.


“We’re really thrilled to have Toby Hadoke back on both releases, who does a truly masterful job moderating,” says Paul. “Moving forward we have some really exciting plans for Who Talk, but we can only proceed if you keep supporting them, and buy them officially. So stay tuned, there’s more to come!”


We are also offering a special edition bundle featuring both commentaries for Day of Armageddon and The Daemons. Each set will be signed by an actor from each release as well as a both disc featuring alternative commentaries on Galaxy Four and The Celestial Toymaker.
