Reeltime Pictures Wartime Chronicles DVD

Available to order from

WARTIME has the unique distinction of being the very first independent spin-off from DOCTOR WHO. It stars JOHN LEVENE reprising his role from DOCTOR WHO as Sergeant John Benton.

During all his years working for the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT), Benton never failed in his duty but once, long ago, he did. While on a seemingly routine delivery run for The Brigadier, he finds himself close to his childhood home where ghosts from his past have never rested easily …

Trapped in a nightmare world, where past and present seem as one, will he be lost forever or can he fight his way back to reality? A reality where he is desperately needed!

This 2 DISC special collector s edition, features WARTIME, a package of behind-the-scenes material, a brand new introduction, plus two bonus documentaries … ReUNITed (a history of UNIT) and JON PERTWEE & UNIT LIVE ON STAGE (an entertaining convention panel featuring Jon Pertwee and the UNIT team).

Sergeant Benton himself would be proud!

    A bit of a controversial question that doesn’t really matter. Are these DVDs canon in the Doctor Who Universe?

      No. They are unofficial productions.

      They are cannon if you think they are. Same with anything in the expanded universe of who, be it book, cd, comic or dvd, if you enjoy them they are cannon there really is no definitive answer to what is and isn’t anymore. Make up your own mind, it’s the best way I find.

      Yes they are, they are officially licensed by the correct license holders.

      If you want these stories can be canon and I class them as canon as they have the rights to the characters or they’d be sued for copyright.
