Douglas Adams wasted no time in making his mark on Doctor Who with this extravagantly envisioned cerebral take on the show’s format. With his trademark humour and imagination at full pelt, and a robotic parrot and intergalactic jumping planet amongst the highlights, The Pirate Planet is an early example of the genius of Adams.
More than forty years on, cast reunite to share their memories of the production in a brand new commentary for all four episodes. Additionally we present a bonus track for episode four featuring the serial’s novelist.
Moderated by actor, comedian and cult television enthusiast Toby Hadoke, this release features Rosalind Lloyd (The Nurse), David Warwick (Kimus), David Sibley (Pralix) and James Goss (Novelist). The bonus edition also features John Leeson and Michael Owen Morris.
These CDs can be enjoyed on their own or played in conjunction with the official BBC DVD release.
