Recording the DVD Commentaries

SFX has a great story on John Kelly, Matthew Kingsland and Toby Hadoke who have been producing the classic Doctor Who DVD commentaries since the second range of DVD releases began.

As the guest casts of those era of Who series are in many cases getting into their 80s and indeed some have passed away it is in a way a race against time to record those casts and guest actors reminiscences and insights before they too are gone.

Fleshing out the rest of the DVD commentaries team are DVD branch boss Dan Hall, Richard Bignell, Andrew Pixley with apparently self-described Doctor Who "trivia-heads" Ben Jolly and Simon Harries to help fill in gaps in the cast and crew memories when needed.
