Few Doctor Who stories are as revered or as adored as Robert Holmes’s six part 1977 serial The Talons of Weng-Chiang.
With its intoxicating blend of Victoriana, science fiction, Chinese tongs, music halls and even a giant rat, the serial brought to a close the great gothic era of Doctor Who under the helm of producer Philip Hinchcliffe.
To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of this landmark serial, cast and crew have been reunited to provide new commentaries.
Moderated by actor Nicholas Pegg, this release features Christopher Benjamin (Henry Gordon Jago), Trevor Baxter (Professor Litefoot), John Bloomfield (Costume Designer), Roger Murray Leach (Designer) and Philip Hinchcliffe (Producer).
A web exclusive special edition is also available featuring a 30 minute archive stage interview panel with Christopher Benjamin & Trevor Baxter.
These CDs can be enjoyed on their own or played in conjunction with the official BBC DVD release.
These commentaries contain no BBC copyrighted elements and do not feature audio from the episodes themselves.
