Fans of the Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor may be very interested in this new DVD box set released in June.
‘The Doctors: The Pat Troughton Years’, introduced by the voice of the Daleks Nicholas Briggs and Producer Keith Barnfather (Downtime) contains a definitive set of interviews with the team of actors who brought the second Doctor’s era to life.
Patrick Troughton’s era began in 1966 with his first full appearance in the classic (and missing) ‘The Power of the Daleks‘. Regenerating from William Hartnell’s more grandfather persono, Troughton’s childlike ‘cosmic hobo’ received a mix reaction. However, this new incarnation turned out to be very clever, always a few steps ahead of his enemies and at times a calculating schemer. Now 50 years on the second Doctor is a firm favourite among fans and those that went on to play further incarnations of the Doctor.
This 2 disc multi-region DVD special collector’s edition is 5 hours of pure nostalgia containing messages from a host of stars and production staff including in-depth interviews with companions, Anneke Wills (Polly), Michael Craze (Ben), Frazer Hines (Jamie), Deborah Watling (Victoria) and Wendy Padbury (Zoe).
‘The Doctors: The Pat Troughton Years’ is released on June 12th and is available to pre-order now.
However, this new DVD is not alone. Already released is ‘The Doctors: The Jon Pertwee Years’ containing interviews with John Levene, Nicholas Courtney, Caroline John and Katy Manning. And there is more to come in September with ‘The Doctors: The Tom Baker Years’.
