In its early days Doctor Who was recorded on cumbersome cameras tethered to claustrophobic and often inadequate studios. The show rarely escaped these confines in the 1960s, but as technology improved, producers and directors became more adventurous.
Location shooting has helped to create some of the most memorable episodes in the series’ long history. This unique publication tells the story of those episodes and the people who made them happen.
This 100-page Special includes interviews with:
- Designer Spencer Chapman (The Dalek Invasion of Earth)
- Production manager Margot Hayhoe (Fury From the Deep, Castrovalva etc)
- Location manager Nicky James (Night Terrors, The Bells of Saint John etc)
- Location manager Iwan Roberts (A Good Man Goes to War, The Day of the Doctor etc)
- Producer Marcus Wilson (A Town Called Mercy, The Angels Take Manhattan etc)
Editor Marcus Hearn says:
How important is location shooting to Doctor Who? And what do the programme’s locations tells us about the series? These are some of the questions we’ve tried to answer in this new Special Edition. This is the first time Doctor Who Magazine has dedicated a whole issue to location shooting. There’s a lot to write about, and some fantastic pictures that have never seen print before.Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition: On Location is on sale now, price £5.99 (UK) and $11.99 (US).
