Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord - Preservation
I really loved making ‘Shada,’ that I have decided to set this project in motion. It wont be ready for about a month, but I thought I would mention it now, and find out who would like a copy.
First, some information about the episode(s):
The Trial of a Time Lord is the name used on screen for all fourteen episodes comprising the 23rd season of the original Doctor Who series. Despite the single name, however, it is actually the linking narrative that holds together the separate serials that comprise the season. The serials are unofficially known as: The Mysterious Planet, Mindwarp, Terror of the Vervoids and The Ultimate Foe. These are NOT official titles!
The Sixth Doctor is taken out of time, his TARDIS transported to a mysterious space station where it is revealed that his people, the Time Lords, are putting him on trial once again. He is accused of “conduct unbecoming a Time Lord” and transgressing the First Law of Time. The Ultimate Court of Appeal is composed of the High Council of Time Lords, including the Inquisitor (fulfilling the role of adjudicator), and the Valeyard who has raised the charges against the Doctor. Using the evidence presented from the Matrix, which collects data from the various time zones in which a TARDIS lands and records it, three segments of evidence are shown to prove the Doctor’s guilt or otherwise: one from his past, one from his (near) present and one from his own future.
A note on the title:
Although each of the separate segments has been given a name by the fans, based upon working titles, the story is only ever credited on screen as The Trial of a Time Lord. This leads to the single story being 14 episodes long, making it the longest ever Doctor Who story.
I absolutley love this story, while other people I know, hate it. Full credit goes to Simon Holub, for his excellent art work.
The DVD is a single episode. All 14 episodes have been joined together, so that it runs for a total of 351 minutes. This is the version that I like the most, as it really should be viewed in this fashion. A cover preview is below:
