'Downtime' DVDs to be won!

As reported in Tony Jordan’s blog, 16 November sees the long-awaited release on DVD of 'Downtime', the independent drama spin-off from Doctor Who which featured the return of the Brigadier, UNIT and the Yeti. Made in 1995, the project was warmly welcomed by a fandom starved of new Doctor Who on television and was perhaps the most ambitious of the various straight to video productions that were made at this time. They’ll be a full review of 'Downtime', along with an interview with its producer Keith Barnfather, in the re-launched Cosmic Masque later in the year!

We have THREE copies of Downtime on DVD to be won!

How to enter:
To be in with a chance of winning, please send the answer to the following question to cm@dwasonline.co.uk

Question: What is the name of the item the Brigadier is looking for?

Doctor Who saw a drop in overnight numbers in the Uk to 3.87 million. This was however still a 19.4% share of the audience, only slightly down on the previous week. More importantly, The X Factor on ITV which as scheduled directly opposite Doctor Who achieved just 5.63 million, which whilst it is more than Doctor Who, is significantly lower than might be expected for live 'event' TV.
