Its always great when you're introduced to something new on the blog and it happened to me a while back when Scoop posted about his fabulous trip to Devil's End as featured in Dr. Who and The Daemons.
I'd never heard of Devil's End or The Daemons. I was always a part-time Dr. Who fan as a kid and never saw everything. However, my love of monsters and all things supernatural drew me to The Daemons, once Scoop had posted about it this summer. I still can't believe I didn't see it first time round!
The first thing I've done is to order the DVD for rental on Love Film. Mrs Moonbase and I love Scandinavian DVD box sets so they are coming first, with The Daemons following, hopefully for Halloween, which would be great timing! I was tempted to track it down on VHS as that's my favourite format but I don't need to own it, just see it.
Whilst searching I also saw a Daemons spin-off called Daemos Rising from 2004. If I like The Daemons proper then I might get hold of it. Anyone seen this spin-off?
In the meantime, I have been looking up The Daemons online. There's loads on You Tube including cast reunions and original location filming.
I doubt if anything I find will be news to proper Who fans but I stumbled across this You Tube clip from the old Tomorrows World TV show [which I loved!] explaining how some Who fans and the BBC managed to rescue and restore the Daemons. It's quite fascinating so I've posted it here. I think its 1992. Enjoy and thanks Scoop!
