The Moonbase - DVD

Sadly, only two of the four episodes of the Second Doctor's first encounter with the Cybermen still exist, so for the DVD release the story was completed by animating the two missing episodes to off-air audio recorded by a fan on the original transmission.

• 4 x 25 mins approx monochrome episodes with mono audio.

Commentary. For episodes 2 and 4, a traditional commentary with actors Anneke Wills, Frazer Hines and Edward Phillips and Special Sounds creator Brian Hodgson. For episodes 1 and 3, a series of one-to-one interviews featuring writer Kit Pedler’s daughters Lucy Pedler and Carol Topolski, archive interview with producer Innes Lloyd, AFM Lovett Bickford, and Cyberman actors Barry Noble, Derek Chaffer and Reg Whitehead. Moderated and linked by Toby Hadoke.

Lunar Landing (dur. 21’ 27” ) – cast and crew look back on the making of the story. With actors Anneke Wills, Frazer Hines and Reg Whitehead, production assistant Desmond McCarthy.

Plus of course the usual PDF materials, Coming Soon trailer, Programme Subtitles, Subtitle Production Notes and Photo Gallery.
