  1. The Dan Hall interview was very informative. It’d be interesting to see if “Shada” ever does get released, as well as whether they get with the right animation company to work on lost stories. I’d love to see “The Moonbase” get the animation treatment.

  2. Also, Gallifrey Base has asploded over Dan Hall’s implied impugning of recons.

    And, yes, I know this is why you disdain reading fan forums.

  3. I rather enjoyed the Peter Pervis commentaries on the Space Museum and The Chase – he had obviously done some swatting up and kept it lively , informative with plenty of anecdotes! More of Peter Pervis please !

  4. Great job with the Dan Hall interview.

    Thank you for bringing it to the podcast. Personally, I think Hall is right that the BBC audio versions of the lost stories are preferential to the fan reconstructions. As wonderful as the recons are, I find them more disruptive and harder to follow than the audio-linked soundtracks.

    Ideally, 2|entertain will find a way to animate the missing stories, but until then the ‘official’ BBC audio soundtracks are there to fill in the gaps. (I just wish they’d redo ‘The Macra Terror’ with one of the story’s companion’s doing linking narration.)

    Anyway, the recons are already available for those who want them.
