  1. Whoa!!Well done,i wasn’t anticipating a miniscope analysing Jonathan Gibbs’minimal contribution to Doctor Who,scoring four stories in the eighties to be a valuable,insightful and comprehensive analysis of sound design and it’s role in Doctor Who’s production generally.VERY IMPRESSED by the detailed research which informed the aural soundscape of your podcast and discussion.Personally,i think the most important feature of sound design should be that it is in concert with the actors and writing rather than undermining them.Thanks and congratulations.Again.

  2. As a Hulu+ subscriber, I can verify that there’s a significant library of Classic Who episodes. While I can’t speak for how complete the library is (due to not having enough time to cross-reference w/a complete episode list), it looks like there’s more than enough to satisfy most whovians’ appetite for Classic Who.
    However, they’re only available through a Roku box or something similar.

  3. Jonathan Gibbs also scored “Slipback”, the 1985 BBC radio 4 story.

    Sarah Hellings didn’t replace the composer on “Mark of the Rani” due to any fear about AIDS, the original composer died during his work on that show. He had only completed a small amount of work so Gibbs was brought in to do the 2 episodes; this was reported in DWM at the time.
