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 www.whoschanging.co.uk priced at £.3.49.
