one of them was called doctor who: sympathy for the devil. this had david warner playing the third doctor. the scenario was that after he was forced to regenerate and exiled to earth by the time lords, he didn't land in the 1970's [or whenever those stories were set] and end up working with UNIT, rather he landed in hong kong in 1999, there meeting up with retired UNIT head alistair gordon lethbridge-stewart. at the end of that tale alistair and the doctor, who had regained control of his tardis from the time lords, set off travelling around the universe.
It's been a long wait, but finally the third doctor who never was is back!
david warner would always be top of my lists for actors who would have been great in the role of the doctor on tv. the doctor he plays here is smart, impatient, always eager to cut to the heart of the problem, and has a feeling that he's got lost time to make up for. he also has a quiet but determined sense of moral authority. this version of the brigadier is a man looking for a change in life, but still a consummate soldier.
the story is spread across two discs. the first disc starts with a trailer for the forthcoming third season of eighth doctor and lucie miller audios, and ends with a track containing twelve minutes of the score for the story.Read more ›
This episode revisits the alternative third Doctor played by David Warner in ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ and his friend Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart played by the ever reliable and much missed Nicholas Courtney.
The Doctor and his friend are travelling the universe having some fun adventures when they land on a planet named Skaro. What follows is a sort of alternative ‘Genesis Of The Daleks’, as the Doctor becomes aware of the legend of Davros (played by Terry Molloy, who was clearly relishing the script and giving it his considerable best). Suddenly the tables are turned and the Doctor is forced to make choices that would usually be unthinkable, while the Brigadier really comes into his own and finally finds his place in the Universe.
The three leads are superb, Warner convincing as an arrogant yet compassionate alternative third Doctor, Molloy on excellent form as the eternally crafty and scheming Davros. It is Nicholas Courtney however who steals the show, as this alternative Brigadier is finally given the chance to be the man he should have been.Read more ›
The Doctor has decided to take his new friend Alistair on a trip and after have a time of it they end up on Skaro. After agreeing to help the Thals fight the Daleks the Doctor discovers the existence of Davros the long lost Dalek creator. The Doctor and Alistair capture a Dalek and re-programme it to think it’s Davros causing infighting between Daleks that can’t decide whether Davros has undergone full Dalek conversion. While the Daleks squabble and fight our heroes strike, but there is a surprise visit to the planet from the Quatch. The Quatch are beings from another dimension.
Nicholas Courtney is the Brigadier, doesn’t matter which version he just is. David Warner on the other hand feels like an archetypal classic series Doctor even though he never was. Davros played by Molloy is an alternate version as are the Daleks. These versions are ostensibly the same but with differences. The casting is faultless, not just the main characters who are mostly played by their original actors but also the supporting actors. The music and production values are consistent with the rest of the range but the Quatch voices are ridiculously quiet at times. The Quatch grew on me over the course of the story.Read more ›
