The Mind Robber Commentary


I'm pleased to announce that the second of my Doctor Who commentary tracks, on the classic Patrick Troughton serial The Mind Robber, is now available. Thanks to Jack Graham for joining me for the fun once again.

These commentary tracks will continue through the eleven stories promised by the Kickstarter, and will continue past that assuming the Patreon is over $300 a week by that point.

The tracks are available here, in a zip file containing commentaries for all five episodes. Please enjoy, and do let me know how you like them.

I've only listened to episode one so far, but I'm loving it. These commentaries are wonderful. I really hope the Patreon gets up above $300 soon (I'm unfortunately already contributing as much as I can afford, or rather as much as I can get away with before it starts to risk irritating my partner!).

I just finished watching The Mind Robber with your commentary, having watched an episode or two per evening over the last three nights. I really enjoyed it (and The Rescue) and am looking forward to future ones. In one of your descriptions of what you planned to do in the commentaries--maybe way back during the Kickstarter--I think you said you planned to do more of what you used to do in your video blog posts. Do you still have plans to do this in future commentaries? Taking a scene and discussing visually interesting elements in some depth in a way that wouldn't come across as clearly in writing. I'm thinking here of your description of Patrick Troughton's skill at hovering on the edges of the frame, accompanying a scene from Tomb of the Cybermen. That was a terrific post, it changed the way I looked at the acting on the show. In any case, whatever is in the commentaries, I will be eager to hear it! Thanks for the fun.
