10 Years of DAM, from the beginning...

Exactly 10 years ago today DAM Productions released their first Doctor Who audio, "The Big F Up" and since, DAM has continued to release over 30 audio productions and a few fan films in the "Doctor Who" world.

Why not give it a listen and laugh and then listen to our later stuff and be flabbergasted.

"The Big F Up" was recorded on a £8 karaoke mic, the production features the first audible appearance of the David Nagel Doctor and companion, Mike. The rest of characters were (if it wasn't obvious enough) voiced by the other cast members! The only cast member 'from the internet' was Aron Toman (of Crossover Productions fame).

The three episodes were mixed in Goldwave across three evenings and released over the course of a few days. Sound effects were from various sources, including the popular but now defunct ljudo.com. The incidental music was composed by David Nagel in the typical MIDI style. A special arrangement of the Ron Grainer theme tune was composed and used as the Doctor opens his pocket watch in Episode One. A version of the "Halloween" theme by John Carpenter was used over the climax in Episode Three.

Writers David Nagel and Michael Maher wanted a more comedic approach to the "Doctor Who" world and so "The Big F Up" was written, not only with an amusing title, but with humour only coming from the Doctor and Mike. This is something that is continued through the other opening stories.

The "Sliders" subplot was written into the story to allow short trip fan films to be filmed without the need of a full size TARDIS prop or interior. The "Sliders" TV opening narration is read at the end of Episode Three here and the full realisation of the plot idea is revealed in the mid-season story, "Tempromancy of the Daleks".

"The Big F Up" is considered one of our weaker programmes, but one we hope showed knowledge of its' technology and potential, which indeed it has with every new production brings increased expertise and more (different) voices!

Here's for another 10 years?
