Myth Makers David Banks

mm banks.jpg ? In Stock £9.99

We travel to Brighton with Nicholas Briggs to catch up with David Banks, the man behind the Cyberleader mask. We find out how in 1982 David set about popularising the Cybermen after their seven year absence from Doctor Who.


Shot on location at the Theatre Royal, this Myth Makers also gives a glimpse behind the scenes of Doctor Who: The Ultimate Adventure in which David played Karl the mercenary leader. We find out about some of the problems that arise when you bring the famous Time Lord off the television screen and onto the stage.



Myth Makers David Brierley

mm brierley.jpg ? In Stock £9.99

At first glance, David Brierley would seem an unlikely choice to take over from John Leeson as the voice of K9. As one of Britain’s dedicated character actors David had built a career in television, theatre, radio and commercials that paid a living and still allowed him to walk down the street unnoticed. He was happy – he didn’t really want to be K9’s voice!


Perhaps it was the wealth of experience that David could bring to K9, his ability to give K9 more depth, that appealed to Christopher Barry and John Nathan-Turner when they were casting for Creature from the Pit. Whatever their reasons – they wanted David.


In this Myth Makers, Nicholas Briggs finds out why David finally took the job and the challenges and rewards he found. And why did he leave after only one season?


All this and more in the latest Myth Makers release.

Derrick Sherwin joined the Doctor Who production office during the latter days of Patrick Troughton’s tenure as the second Doctor.

Myth Makers Dick Mills

mmdickbig ? In Stock £9.99

"We found to our cost, and the Radiophonic Workshop's cost, that making it look easy proved to be our downfall." Experience as a wireless mechanic in The Royal Air Force helped DICK MILLS to get a job at the BBC as a Technical Assistant in 1956, but he soon left to join the newly-formed BBC Radiophonic Workshop. In 1963, he helped DELIA DERBYSHIRE transform RON GRAINER's written DOCTOR WHO theme tune into sound and music. He is best known for his many years work, especially between 1971 and 1993, creating sounds for the programme. In this MYTH MAKERS, DICK talks frankly about life in the Workshop, its rise and eventual downfall...a victim, in some ways, of its own success!
