New documentary takes a look at the changing face of Doctor Who fans

In 2013, millions of Doctor Who fans around the world celebrated the series' 50th anniversary. Were you one of them?

Capital City Entertainment, a London based film and theatre production company, has today announced plans to release on DVD and VOD on 27 January 2014, Who's Changing: An Adventure In Time With Fans, a new documentary about the changing face of fandom of the world's longest running science fiction series, Doctor Who, featuring new and exclusive interviews with many stars from the show past and present.

From the first ever Doctor Who convention, through the wilderness years and to cosplayers at the conventions of today, Who's Changing looks at how and why the nature of Doctor Who's fans changed as mainstream interest in the show took hold.

Who's Changing features interviews with many familiar faces from the show such as Louise Jameson (Leela), Sophie Aldred (Ace), Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar), Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint), Caitlin Blackwood (Amelia Pond), Dan Starkey (Commander Strax) as well as faces from behind the scenes such as script editors Gary Russell and Eric Saward and scriptwriters Andrew Smith (Doctor Who, Full Circle), Jane Espenson (Torchwood: Miracle Day, Buffy, Battlestar Galactica) and James Moran (Doctor Who, The Fires of Pompeii).

Plus, from the world of comic books, Who's Changing also features Tony Lee, Simon Furman, Dan Slott, Richard Dinnick, Richard Starkings and Josh Adams.

The film was shot over many months in 2013, the year of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary, at events around the UK such as MCM Comic Con, London Super Comic Con and the Doctor Who conventions, Big Blue Box 2 and Return to the 11th Hour. The filmmakers also filmed many fans in some incredible Doctor Who inspired costumes at these events.

Director Cameron K. McEwan says: "I've loved Doctor Who all my life and some of my earliest memories are of Doctor Who, and it was great to meet and interview so many people who felt the same. From actors to writers to fans, the love for the show comes over in abundance. It's an amazing journey from the start of fandom to where it is now - a genuinely fascinating story from hugely entertaining characters."

The DVD release also includes exclusive DVD-only extras with extended interviews with Louise Jameson, Sophie Aldred, Neve McIntosh, Simon Fisher-Becker and Dan Starkey.

Who's Changing will be available to buy on DVD from Amazon as well as specialist cult TV and sci-fi retailers such as Forbidden Planet, Galaxy 4, The Who Shop, StarTrader, The Cinema Store and WhoOne, priced at £12.99 RRP as well as being available to stream online on VOD from the official website at priced at £.3.49.

Who's Changing: An Adventure In Time With Fans is a production of Capital City Entertainment in association with Early Train Productions. Directed by Cameron K. McEwan and produced by Elisar Cabrera, Cameron K. McEwan and Jack Ayers.

Coming soon a new documentary about Doctor Who fans

Doctor Who has entertained fans for five decades. Many fans who have grown up watching the show in their youth have even ended up working on the series in some capacity. For example, actor Peter Capaldi, recently announced as the Twelfth Doctor, is a self-confessed fan and famously wrote to the producers as a teenager. Writer and author Cameron K. McEwan (aka Doctor Who blogger @BlogtorWho) has teamed up with filmmakers Elisar Cabrera and Jack Ayers to produce a new documentary on how fandom has changed since the series came back in 2005. There have been many documentaries about Doctor Who but this unique one by Capital City Entertainment is about the fans themselves and its changing face over the years.

The film is already in production and several familiar faces to Doctor Who fandom have agreed to appear in it. Interviews have been recorded with former companions: Sophie Aldred (Ace), Louise Jameson (Leela), Caitlin Blackwood (Amelia Pond); recurring characters, Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Catrin Stewart (Jenny), Dan Starkey (Strax) and Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar); writers James Moran (“The Fires of Pompeii”), Jane Espenson (“Torchwood: Miracle Day”) and Andrew Smith (“Full Circle”); former Doctor Who script editors Gary Russell and Eric Saward; comic writers Tony Lee (IDW Doctor Who), Simon Furman (Doctor Who Magazine strips and Transformers), Dan Slott (Spiderman) and Richard Starkings (Elephantmen); and many more including many Doctor Who fans who have been filmed at various conventions around the country.

The production team chose to bypass traditional documentary film funding avenues and intend to raise their final production and film release costs for their film on crowdfunding platform, a website where contributors can donate to creative projects and good causes in exchange for “perks”.

"We wanted to keep this film 100% independently produced and distributed as we have always said through the production process this film is 'by fans for fans',” said co-director Elisar Cabrera.

“As well as offering the standard perk of a free DVD, we thought we'd offer other perks that help bring Doctor Who fans together in this film. So, we have one perk that offers the chance to see edited clips before the release as well as a perk that gives fans a chance to contribute to the film their own photo memories of being a fan,” said co-director Cameron K. McEwan.
