Digital Subscriptions > Doctor Who Magazine > DWM Special 44 - On Location > THE CURSE OF FENRIC


Director: Nicholas Mallett Producer: John Nathan-Turner Broadcast: 25 October – 15 November 1989

In 1989, the final series of Doctor Who’s original run was preoccupied with history – not just the facts but also the myths gathered around them.

We’re used to dividing history into blocks to make it easily manageable. Consensus often emerges as to the most useful periods, but there are arguments against even the most widely recognised dividing lines. The Curse of Fenric pushes Cold War tensions into the middle of the Second World War, as Soviet troops land on British shores in search of a topsecret decryption device. This seems ironic in hindsight – the Berlin Wall came down on 9 November 1989, between the broadcast of Parts Three and Four of the story.

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.
