'Edits of Evil'

Jonathan Wood Wood as The Doctor The Doctor and Sarah face the deadly Co-Ords The Doctor, Sarah and K-9

Here's a short film I made back in 1997, with some chums from the BBC Post Production department, produced for inclusion in that year's VT Christmas tape. (For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Christmas tapes: they are an infamous annual event which has been going since 1978, made by the post production people, and which include outtakes, satire, spoofs, skits, parodies and generally anything else that's both very funny and in extremely bad taste).

Shot in and around the BBC's Television Centre in London, the film is a spoof / homage to the days of Tom Baker's portrayal of the Doctor, which is seen as a classic era in the show's history. The plot pokes fun at a typical 'Doctor Who' storyline, and also satirises the political climate in the BBC Post Production Department of that time; I deliberately included the usual wobbly sets, dodgy special effects and wooden acting (which was deliberate, honest!) that the show was infamous for, also throwing in plenty of cliches and cardboard for good measure, plus a nod to previous Christmas VT tapes and even a cameo from yours truly.

So, sit back and enjoy Jonathan Wood as the Doctor ("Would you like a jelly baby?"), Emma Ware as Sarah ("Doctor - look!") and a cardboard box as K-9, as together they face the menace of Smart One! 'Edits of Evil' runs for about seven minutes - I hope you enjoy it!
