The BFI are set to screen a brand new animation of The Wheel in Space, a mostly missing Doctor Who story.
As part of the 25th birthday of the Missing Believed Wiped event at the British Film Institute, a new animated segment from Episode One of the Patrick Troughton story, which was lost back in the 1970s, will be screened at the event and will later be released on BBC DVD. Only two of the six episodes are still in the BBC Archives today.
Charles Norton is the producer of the mini-episode and Anne Marie Walsh is the director. Norton previously produced the animated revival of The Power of the Daleks, released in 2016 by the BBC Store and Shada, released in 2017. Walsh will be attending the event and is set to introduce the mini-episode. There will be an interview with Philip Morris, who has previously returned other Doctor Who stories to the BBC Archives.
You can find out more about the BFI's Missing Believed Wiped event on the BFI website. The event will be held at the BFI's Southbank Centre on the 15th December 2018.
Victorian London will never be the same again…
Neve McIntosh, Catrin Stewart and Dan Starkey return as Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax the Sontaran for their own audio adventures in The Paternoster Gang – Heritage.
Set during the Victorian London, The Paternoster Gang have finally been reunited. The much loved characters from the Steven Moffat era will return next year in a new set of audios from Big Finish made in association with BBC Studios.
They’ll be facing the first electronic automated cars in London (very ahead of their time), hordes of zombies, and ghost-like figures which are haunting Greenwich before their former selves have died…
Plus they’ll have to cope with the capers of the Bloomsbury bunch! This intergalactic alien trio, comprising a Sontaran (with Christopher Ryan once again playing a Sontaran) and human couple and their Silurian female servant, will be causing trouble in London – and this town isn’t big enough for two extraterrestrial gangs...
The first adventure for The Paternoster Gang is being released as part of The 8th of March celebratory box set.
Following this, four volumes, each containing three adventures are coming out in 2019 and 2020, kicking off with the first volume, Heritage 1, being released in June:
1.1 The Cars That Ate London by Jonathan Morris
1.2 A Photograph to Remember by Roy Gill
1.3 The Ghosts of Greenwich by Paul Morris
