Predictions 2021.


That Day We reach the time when I assess how well I predicted the ups and downs of the year and look forward to the next. Here we go again:

Our family gets vaccinated.

We did!  One mark.

We stay safe until we get the vaccine.

We did!  One mark.

We go shopping in the city centre.

We did!  One mark.

I visit London.

I did not.  No marks.

I lose my lockdown weight.

I did not and added some grief weight instead (although I am working on it).  No marks.

3/5 since I'm following these predictions as strictly as possible and I need a win this year, given everything else which happened.

Right then 2022, come and have a go if you think you're hard enough.

The Sugababes release an album of new material.

More Doctor Who episodes found.

General election called, Tories lose power.

Spider-Man film starring Andrew Garfield announced.

COVID miraculously disappears, everything returns to normal.

Let's go fucking utopian, shall we?

A Chronological List of the Archive Footage Included on the Doctor Who Collection Blu-ray Box Sets (and the previous individual DVD releases).

TV Find below exactly what it says in the title of the post, a chronological list of all the archive footage included on the Doctor Who collection blu-ray box sets. Who fans have always been spoilt in the kinds of special features the release of our show includes and in the Collection series, there's a sense that we're now getting the definite version of each of these stories.

This is especially true in terms of includable behind the scenes material.  The release of season 24 has hours and hours of studio and location footage, what seems like entire recording sessions.  No need to rely on the fading memories of the cast and crew, now we can see them finding their characters and the show in take after take.  If only other releases were this open.

That's inspired me to go through the Collection releases so far and see what behind the scenes material is there and then put it all into chronological order by recording dates so that if someone wanted to, they could enjoy the history of Doctor Who in its rawest form.  To that end I've include the details of which disc in which season box the footage appears, so "s8, d2" means "season 8, disc 2" obviously.

The original version of this list narrowed the focus to anything pertaining directly to the making of the programme, production footage, fx sessions and any audio material recorded on location, or in a couple of cases recorded at television centre in the lunch break during a recording session.  But in this revision, it's anything up to and around the transmission of the 1989 series.

A quick note on the dates given.  Sometimes this was easy, the box set includes the date with the footage.  Sometimes I had to wade into the archive features from Doctor Who Magazine and the production documentation included on the blu-rays to try and work out which date that footage was recorded.  Even then it wasn't clear so some dates are still a bit rough.

The priority is to include the date when the item was originated, either when it was recorded or if it was broadcast live, unless it's been impossible to find, in which case I'll go with the TX date.  This will probably be such things as films on Blue Peter which may or may not feature members of the production staff.  Hopefully it'll make sense as we're going along.

Also, when its an external programme which has recorded the footage, the date given is when the footage was recorded rather than the transmission date.  Sometimes the DWM archives mention when the programme makers visited the set, thank goodness.  You'll see I completely wigged out on Whose Doctor Who and refer you to the work of Mr. Pixley.

One I'm especially proud of.  The location shoot for The Sontaran Experiment was covered by Morning Sou'West, a regional opt out programme which used to be broadcast instead of Today on Radio 4.  As the BD caption says you can hear the rain pouring in the background.  The DWM archive is unusually specific in describing the weather conditions and it only rained on the 29th September.

The quoted descriptions are directly from the DVD and BD booklets.  There is a version of this list in which that text instead itemises the content of each of the clips narrowing them down to session times and the source episode, but at a certain point you have to decided what the most important details are here and really its providing the basic dates, especially when they're not included on the disc itself.

Some thanks and references.  Thank you to @thejimsmith for helping with one particularly tricky date for the Drashig fx footage from Carnival of Monsters and @jonnymorris1973 for a Blue Peter date.  Two websites were especially useful, this page which indexes the DWM archive features, The Millennium Effect and Shannon Sullivan's production history website was helpful for raw dates of recording blocks.

Is any of the following new information?  Any Who experts reading will be able to tell me and for all I know I've simply repeated work done elsewhere even if in a slightly more concise manner.  As each new Collection is released, I'll update the list if new footage is included.  As you can see when its a transmission date I've marked it as [TX] next to the title,
