This review is from: "Doctor Who" at the BBC: v. 3 (Dr Who Radio Collection) (Audio CD)
Three volumes in and the BBC are now struggling to find choice clips for these, so they have to throw together whatever is left. This includes the soundtrack to some tv interviews, so it's not clear whether the visuals for those survive or not.
The 'whatever happened to susan?' programme obviously had to turn up on one of these eventually. I'd never heard it and wasn't expecting much but it turned out to be pretty good.
There are assorted interviews from all over the years of the show presented in no particular order.
There's a live performance Jon Pertwee and Elizabeth Sladen did at goodwood races. This is an interesting curio but the sound is poor and the script is awful, and doesn't work without visuals.
And lots of news items from 2003 when the return of the show was announced. It's fascinating to listen to these now and hear the usual jokes about cheap production values. These would never happen anymore in the wake of the new series.
We also have three hugely funny clips from the impressions show dead ringers, which are almost worth the price of the CD by itself.
A very mixed bag in the end, and not an essential purchase, but it does have some good moments
