Director: Peter Moffatt Producer: John Nathan-Turner Broadcast: 16 February – 2 March 1985

The Two Doctors wasn’t even supposed to be filmed in Seville.

Mindful of Doctor Who’s increasing popularity in the USA, producer John Nathan-Turner had been trying to get an American-set story off the ground for several years. Following the successful trip to Lanzarote for Planet of Fire in 1983, he thought that he’d finally found his moment. Robert Holmes was therefore commissioned to write a story set in New Orleans on the promise of funding from the show’s American distributor, Lionheart. The money fell through, however, so Nathan-Turner was forced to limit his horizons at a very late stage of production.

About Doctor Who Magazine

In its early days, Doctor Who was recorded on cumbersome cameras tethered to claustrophobic and often inadequate studios. The show rarely escaped these confines in the 1960s, but as technology improved, producers and directors became more adventurous. Location shooting has helped to create some of the most memorable episodes in the series’ long history. In this unique publication, new features, exclusive interviews and rare images tell the story of those episodes and the people who made them happen.
