Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space

Third Doctor serial ‘Mind of Evil’ restored to color for the first time in 40 years

via DoctorWho.tv:

  • Due to a policy of “junking” video tapes in the 1960s and 70s, the original colour versions of all episodes of The Mind of Evil were lost, with only black and white copies remaining in the archives. Two types of colour restoration were used on this release:
  • Colour recovery was used on episodes 2-6, where the B&W tapes retained the original colour information, hidden in their signal. These were restored by Richard Russell of the Colour Recovery Working Group.
  • Manual colourisation was needed for episode 1, where due to the original colour-to-B&W transfer settings, no hidden colour information existed. Stuart Humphryes manually recoloured every fifth frame (out of 36,000!) in Photoshop, and the information in these “key frames” was then extrapolated out over subsequent frames.

The re-colored version of Mind of Evil is now available on DVD.

A Companion To The Doctor’s Companions: The Brigadier | Anglophenia
Learn more about Kate Stewart’s dad, the Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart:

The Brig is the only companion to have seen active service with the First Doctor (once he’d been brought back by the Time Lords) the Second Doctor, the Third Doctor, the Fourth Doctor, the Fifth Doctor, the Seventh Doctor and be mentioned fondly by the Tenth Doctor too.  AND he made an appearance in the Sarah Jane Adventures, and would have even met the Tenth Doctor in an episode called Sarah Jane’s Wedding, had Nicholas Courtney not been too poorly to take part.  Which is more than you can say for Turlough.
So what is it about the Brigadier which made him so special? Well it all started with the Second Doctor and some yetis in the London Underground. The Brigadier, with his brace of Scottish names – Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart indeed – is essentially a more authoritative, less boisterous Jamie. His job is to prevent the Doctor from gadding about, and focus on the job in hand. He is neither charmed nor moved by the Doctor’s eccentricities, and he absolutely insists on getting the job done….
