DWAS raising funds for Heritage Plaque to honour Jon Pertwee

TARDIS Pin (Credit: DWAS)Jon Pertwee was the first honorary president of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. In honour of the man who played the third Doctor, the Society is raising funds for a new Heritage Plaque, which is aimed to be installed at the New Wimbledon Theatre (the theatre played host to the premiere of the stage play The Ultimate Adventure in 1989).

As part of the fund-raising, DWAS are selling badges based on the TARDIS roundels, which can be purchased in sets of seven via their website.

The actor will also be celebrated at a special one-day event held by DWAS, Polarity Day, which will take place in London on the 23rd October.


In 2014 the Society unveiled a plaque in memory of Doctor Who's first producer, Verity Lambert at the then Riverside Studios in London. Pertwee himself was also remembered in 2002 when plaques commemorating the first three Doctors were unveiled at the former BBC Television Centre.

Remembrance of the Daleks Gets Who Talk Commerntary

Remembrance of the Daleks (Credit: Fantom)Fantom Publishing have comissioned four new editions of Who Talk, the series of independent commentaries for Doctor Who episodes.

The company has previously released commenteries for the recovered second Doctor stories The Enemy of the World and The Web Of Fear, as well as the third Doctor story The Dæmons and several ophaned First Doctor episodes

The first of the new commisions is the Seventh Doctor Story Remembrance of the Daleks.

Producer Paul W T Ballard explained the choice
Thanks to the strength of the first four releases and the ongoing support we receive from fans, we are thrilled to announce that we have commissioned a further four projects, the first of which is the classic Dalek tale from the twenty-fifth anniversary year.

Remembrance of the Daleks was always the top of my list, as it is not only a strong evocative story from this era of Doctor Who, but the original release gave us scope to go back and talk to those not originally featured on the commentary track.
Joining moderator Toby Hadoke for this release is Pamela Salem (Rachel), Simon Williams (Gilmore), Karen Gledhill (Allison), Andrew Cartmel (Script Editor), and Andrew Morgan (Director).

Remembrance of the Daleks opened Doctor Who's 25th-anniversary series in 1988. The release consists of six new commentaries, including alternative tracks for episodes one and three. Both the CD and download editions are now available priced £10.99 and £9.99 respectively, ahead of the trade release next month.
