Reeltime Pictures The Panopticon Tapes Volumes 1-6

Available to order from www.galaxy4.co.uk or timetraveltv.com

The Panopticon Tapes feature vintage highlights from Britain’s largest conventions which were originally organised by The Doctor Who Appreciation Society (DWAS) but are now run by Dominitemporal Services Ltd.

1. The Main Event

What are PanoptiCons like to organise? What do the fans think of them? What do the stars think of the fans? All this, and there’s still time for a liberal sprinkling of stories from the production team!

However, you’ll see lots of other personalities from other eras as we stop along the way to look at particular aspects of the programme.

2. The Early Years

The stars and production team give a unique insight into Doctor Who from its beginning with William Hartnell to Patrick Troughton’s portrayal of the Doctor.

However, you’ll see lots of other personalities from other eras as we stop along the way to look at particular aspects of the programme.

3. The Pertwee Years

We take an in-depth look at the Jon Pertwee era, which has been featured more thoroughly at PanoptiCons than any other. Experience the special mix that made this period one of the most popular in Doctor Who’s history.

4. The JNT Years

Peter Davison and Colin Baker’s portrayals of the Doctor conceded with one of the most controversial periods of the programme’s history. Was the programme as good as it used to be… or just different? What did the production staff, both past and present, think?

However, you’ll see lots of other personalities from other eras as we stop along the way to look at particular aspects of the programme.

5. Dragonfire

How is a Doctor Who story made? Cast and crew from the Doctor Who story Dragonfire got together at Panopticon IX in a lively and sometimes hilarious discussion which covers every aspect of the making of a television programme.

However, you’ll see lots of other personalities from other eras as we stop along the way to look at particular aspects of the programme.

6. Panopticon VII

1986 was the 10th Anniversary of the DWAS and for the first time professional cameras were there to record the event. This special production includes highlights from the convention, home movies from early Panopticons (featuring Tom Baker and Patrick Troughton) and the reminiscences from organisers, actors and production staff about the early days of fandom.

    Hi,

    The BBC has used some footage owned by DOMINITEMPORAL as part of the ‘special features’ on a dvd release of Doctor Who. The agreement we had in place with them needs to be renewed. Do you have any contact details please?

    Many thanks
    Ben
