I was thinking about An Adventure in Space and Time this morning, and I was wondering what it would be like had there been a trilogy of these films.
If there was, which other aspects of Who history should get a documentary?
At the minute, I’m thinking…
- One about JNT. His time on Doctor Who was a long one, certainly, and also a turbulent one. Whilst it’s not always regarded to be a highlight, I think it’s fair to say that he made a huge contribution to the show. A documentary focusing on his time as producer would have definitely been a great celebration of a large part of Doctor Who’s history.
- The other obvious one would be RTD and the revival, because that’s really one of the trinity of big events across the last 50 years – the birth of Doctor Who, the death of Doctor Who, and the rebirth of Doctor Who.
However, I’m also sort of leaning towards a “wilderness years” documentary, focusing on the Paul McGann movie and Big Finish’s work.
Also, I’m just sort of thinking… if these documentaries were made, the only other era of Doctor Who which wouldn’t be represented would be Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, and the earlier part of Tom Baker’s run, which perhaps might be a concern? A documentary about the handover from Derrick Sherwin to Barry Letts might be interesting.
So… any thoughts? Agree, disagree, other suggestions?
