    Since Katy Manning plays both Jo Grant and Iris Wildthyme, both characters should appear with the third Doctor. It would be a new dynamic, plus this has been done before.

    I loved the first Volume, so looking forward to this Very much.

    Dont understand why they are not using the Pertwee titles in the Side Bar.

    Or Pertwees` Face. BF use Hartnell and Troughton on thier covers, even though its usually Frazer,Peter,William or Maureen who do the respctive Voices.

    Shame really as they could do some very striking Covers,as the well of Images of Jon is more extensive than the previous two Actors.

    Still its the Audio that counts. More Please Vol 3 (fingers crossed)

      I completely agree!! And…there is going to be a Volume 3! It’s up for pre-order on their website. You only have to look to see all the great stuff they’ve got lined up. They’ve got stuff lined up til next Christmas (2017)!

      Perhaps they don’t use Pertwee’s face because he isn’t doing the voice, Tim Treloar is…

      but the point is, philip, that hartnell’s and troughton’s voices are being done by someone else in the Comp. Chron. and the Early Years and yet their faces are on those covers, so why isn’t Pertwee’s used on these?

      For companion chronicals and the early adventures they use an impersonation and the doctor is being narrated by other characters. The third doctor has someone actually playing him than try to impersonate him

      I agree with Gordon – when an actor has actually acted to portray a past actor (in this case Jon Pertwee) I believe it is right what they have done

      Hi gordon and Phillip oh and CG

      In the Early years CDs, The Doctor is Played by rather than Voiced by. My point though is that Elliot Chapman is Playing Ben , a new actor playing an old companion in full cast episodes. Yet BF use photos of the original Ben.

      This is the main Character of his own show, and not even the logo section uses Pertwee, never mind the art section. Just seems an odd thing to do (IMHO)

      And thanks to Ryan for pointing out Series 3 already up for pre order.

      But its the Audio that counts, and they were superb last time and I am sure they will be again
