The Minister Is Coming

It’s been a long wait, but those who have been eagerly anticipating the completed Minister of Chance film won’t have to be patient for too much longer. Post-production, according to an update from those talented people at Radio Static, is just about done with, meaning we can get to enjoy the film version of the Prologue to the audio series very soon.

A highly successful spin-off from the 2001 BBCi (remember them?) Doctor Who audio Death Comes to Time, Minister of Chance has been funded entirely from donations and over the course of its installments has featured a top-notch cast including Sylvester McCoy, Tamsin Greig and Philip Glenister. The new film, shot last autumn, will star Paul McGann and Tim McInnery and is intended to serve as a pre-title sequence for a full filmed version, but will be a complete short film in its own right.

There’s still time to get your name in the credits of what should be a great production by pledging your support at the Minister of Chance website.
