From earliest memories to fan creativity to people running the show, Who’s Changing is a unique Doctor Who documentary, or Whomentary, that takes a look at how fandom has changed so drastically over the years.
whos-changingCharting its rise from church halls in the Seventies to exhibition centers across the world today, we chat to those who were there at the very start of Doctor Who fandom and those who kept the fire burning all those years – and now those who celebrate in the most imaginative and brilliant of fashions.

But it’s not just fans that you’ll find here. Giving their thoughts on fans and fandom are such Doctor Who legends like Leela (Louise Jameson) and Ace (Sophie Aldred) and new favourites such as Strax (Dan Starkey) and Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh).

Who’s Changing is a fun and fascinating look at how fans have changed with the times, just like Doctor Who did, and how these very fans and their amazing creativity go on from strength to strength and sometimes, just sometimes, end up in the show itself. Starring: Louise Jameson (Leela), Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Dan Starkey (Strax), Sophie Aldred (Ace), Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint), Caitlin Blackwood (Amelia Pond), Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar), Gary Russell (Doctor Who script editor), Jane Espenson (Buffy, Torchwood), James Moran (The Fires of Pompeii) and many, many more! DVD Extras: Exclusive extended interviews with Neve McIntosh, Louise Jameson, Sophie Aldred, Dan Starkey and Simon Fisher-Becker.

In 2013, millions of Doctor Who fans around the world celebrated the series’ 50th anniversary. Were you one of them?

Capital City Entertainment, a London based film and theatre production company, has today announced plans to release on DVD and VOD on 27 January 2014, Who’s Changing: An Adventure In Time With Fans, a new documentary about the changing face of fandom of the world’s longest running science fiction series, Doctor Who, featuring new and exclusive interviews with many stars from the show past and present.

From the first ever Doctor Who convention, through the wilderness years and to cosplayers at the conventions of today, Who’s Changing looks at how and why the nature of Doctor Who’s fans changed as mainstream interest in the show took hold.

Who’s Changing features interviews with many familiar faces from the show such as Louise Jameson (Leela), Sophie Aldred (Ace), Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar), Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint), Caitlin Blackwood (Amelia Pond), Dan Starkey (Commander Strax) as well as faces from behind the scenes such as script editors Gary Russell and Eric Saward and scriptwriters Andrew Smith (Doctor Who, Full Circle), Jane Espenson (Torchwood: Miracle Day, Buffy, Battlestar Galactica) and James Moran (Doctor Who, The Fires of Pompeii).

Plus, from the world of comic books, Who’s Changing also features Tony Lee, Simon Furman, Dan Slott, Richard Dinnick, Richard Starkings and Josh Adams.

The film was shot over many months in 2013, the year of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, at events around the UK such as MCM Comic Con, London Super Comic Con and the Doctor Who conventions, Big Blue Box 2 and Return to the 11th Hour. The filmmakers also filmed many fans in some incredible Doctor Who inspired costumes at these events.

Director Cameron K. McEwan says: “I’ve loved Doctor Who all my life and some of my earliest memories are of Doctor Who, and it was great to meet and interview so many people who felt the same. From actors to writers to fans, the love for the show comes over in abundance. It’s an amazing journey from the start of fandom to where it is now – a genuinely fascinating story from hugely entertaining characters.”

      Yes it does.
      One thing to keep in mind is the format.
      Amazon lists it as being PAL which is OK for the UK and a few other areas but depending upon your set up might play back in black and white (or not at all).
      With modern equipment and cables connections this would be unlikely.

    I recognize some of the Cosplayers from the London MCM Expo.

    One I recognize appears at 00.08 who says “David Tennant”. Like me, she’s a Deviant Art user. Her names Emma Denise. She calls her Cosplay ‘Tardis Princess’, and if your on Deviant Art like me and her, her username is ’emmadenise’.
