Though they helped to keep the universe alive during Doctor Who’s lean years, the fan-made Doctor Who video industry rather understandably went into decline when the TV series came back. The most recent one was more recent then you’d think (Zygon: When Being You Just Isn’t Enough in 2008, which was just this side of Cinemax softcore porn), but this fannish cottage industry isn’t done just yet.

Damaris Hayman reprises her role as Miss Hawthorne from “The Daemons”. Olive Hawthorne recounts her life and adventures in Devil’s End as a White Witch….and her fears for the imminent future.
1 x DVD with extras / Will be released on 31 October 2013
Also available in a limited edition signed set with Return to Devil’s End – a set which also includes a bonus disc with extras not available elsewhere. This set is limited to 500 copies and is signed by Damaris.
The Doctor Who News Page has some more detailed info [LINK] – the video will be an anthology of three stories within a framework of Miss Hawthorne recounting her past adventures, and the actress herself, in her 80s, is seated for most of her framing scenes, and had to use a teleprompter. I’m hazarding a guess that the “flashback” stories will feature someone else as a younger Miss Hawthorne.
