Classic Doctor Who DVD documentary gains praise for Newcastle production company ahead of release

A documentary for a forthcoming classic Doctor Who DVD release by Dene films is winning rave reviewed from the programme’s hardcore fanbase.

The Newcastle independent production company, which won three awards at the 2011 US International Film Festival last year, has produced a documentary in the style of Who do You Think You Are for the forthcoming release of ‘The Sensorites’ on DVD next week.

The release of the classic 60’s episode will include the documentary as one of its special features, seeking information on its writer, Peter R Newman, of which little was previously known.

Commissioned by distributer 2|entertain and presented by comedian Toby Hadoke, ‘Looking for Peter’ has already picked up more attention from the programmes fan base than the actual release of the main story itself ahead of the DVD’s release.

Starburst Magazine described it as "rather charming" and Blogtor Who labelled it "a most welcome diversion from the norm... Hadoke brings a warmth and sense of joy to the proceedings and one hopes for similar outings in the future."

Dene Film’s Chris Chapman, who directed the documentary, commented: "We're really proud of this one - and the reaction it's been getting so far has been very touching.”

This is Dene Films 15th commission to produce content for Doctor Who DVD releases in recent years.
