Commissioning editor for 2lentertain, Dan Hall, has recently confirmed to Doctor Who Online that an exclusive Doctor Who DVD Documentary, titled Who Peter, will be included on one of the Doctor Who DVD’s release next year.

This Doctor Who DVD Documentary, Who Peter, includes interviews from Peter Purves, Janet Ellis, Biddy Baxter plus current Doctor Who executive producer Russell T Davies with further contributions from members of Blue Peter and Doctor Who. Who Peter was filmed in both the Blue Peter Studio and the Blue Peter Garden having being devised by Blue Peter producer Richard Marson.
Dan Hall commented:
“I am delighted to confirm that we are nearing the end of production on our biggest documentary to date. It is a two-parter due for release next year, presented by Blue Peter / Strictly Come Dancing star, Gethin Jones.”
Chris Chapman commented:
“With the help of a packed cast of interviewees including Peter Purves, Janet Ellis, Biddy Baxter and Russell T Davies, we spent two action-packed days filming at the BBC and – hopefully – the result is something that sums up and celebrates the quirky bond between the two shows.”
Dan Hall hasn’t confirmed which Doctor Who DVD release that Who Peter will be included on but its currently rumoured that it will feature on a DVD release of a story from Classic Doctor Who. Doctor Who Hideout will keep readers informed regarding this Doctor Who DVD Documentary and further Doctor Who DVD releases from 2lentertain for next year.
