last of the time lords doctor who

Other good AV behind the scenes facts

- They were funded by Gary Russell who was unusually wealthy on account of having played Dick in a successful adapation of The Famous Five in the 1970s

- The other founder was Bill Baggs, later of BBV, and everyone he got involved thought he was like, some middle aged business man until they met him face to face and realised that he was in fact 16

- Bill Baggs left after 3 seasons and prolly didn’t want them to go on without him bcos he did his best to end his final episode on the most destructively final note he could. Gallifrey & all of the Time Lords are destroyed by the daleks and the doctor and all his friends are dead or as good as.

given the similarities between this & the Time War in new who i’d bet good money that RTD listened to the AVs. so yeah there’s a real possibility that the last… 10+ years of dw were shaped by bill baggs being a little shit

- bill baggs has never been involved with BF apparently in part because the beeb took legal action against him in the 90s (he kept making audios & videos starring dr who actors playing totally original characters and eventually got too ballsy)

- one time they came up short on a tape so to fill the time nick briggs decided to make a bonus shorter play, and he literally improv’d this story narrated by the doctor in his digs, he did the alien voices by putting his face against his heater or smth. It was called Vilgreth and was later remade as Last of the Titans which you can find for free on the BF website I think

- the original AV companion, Greg Holmes, was played by richard marston who later went on to work for the BBC and was fired over a scandal that had to do with naming the new blue peter kitten

- they kept losing actors so the companions were played by an average of 1.75 actors each

- nick briggs used like 7 pseudonyms. the most notable one was arthur wallis and he did several behind the scenes interviews as ‘arthur’ which consisted of him doing his best terrence dicks impression

- at least one fellow writer was fooled tho and they had to take him to the pub and gently break the news to him that ‘arthur wallis’ was really just nick

- nabil shaban also appeared in an AV which led to a discussion about whether appearing in a fan-made dw audio was in keeping with being visible as a disabled actor.

- they made a story about evil furbies… in the 1980s

favorite tv shows moodboard: Doctor Who (2005 – present)

So… So… Come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories. But I hope you’ve got a big appetite because I’ve lived a long life and I’ve seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told and knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on then! Take it! Take it all, baby!
