With a brand-new Introduction by Katy Manning (Jo Grant) and Producer Keith Barnfather. WARTIME has the unique distinction of being the very first independent spin-off from DOCTOR WHO. It stars JOHN LEVENE reprising his role from DOCTOR WHO as Sergeant John Benton. During all his years working for the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT), Benton never failed in his duty but once, long ago, he did. While on a seemingly routine delivery run for The Brigadier, he finds himself close to his childhood home where ghosts from his past have never rested easily ... Trapped in a nightmare world, where past and present seem as one, will he be lost forever or can he fight his way back to reality? A reality where he is desperately needed! This 2 DISC special collector s edition, features WARTIME, a package of behind-the-scenes material, a brand new introduction, plus two bonus documentaries ... ReUNITed (a history of UNIT) and JON PERTWEE & UNIT LIVE ON STAGE (an entertaining convention panel featuring Jon Pertwee and the UNIT team). Sergeant Benton himself would be proud! Review Wartime is the first in what is now a long line of independently produced 'Fan Drama', produced by fans of BBCTVs Dr. Who, who have become professional video producers. The story features Sgt. Benton from UNIT, and his experiences, pre-unit as a child and how he is haunted in the present by past failings. This may sound contrived, but is anything but. The story is compelling and not at all predictable. The production values are very good indeed. John Levene is an excellent actor who reprises his role as Benton superbly. The late Michael Wisher (Davros) is nothing less than brilliant as Benton s father. The video comes complete with 'the making of', which in itself is well produced and somehow makes the video a complete package. If you like Dr. Who or just want 'something different' you could do a lot worse than buy this excellent drama --VHS Customer - March 2000 See all Product Description
