Loose Cannon

Loose Cannon's punny logo.

Loose Cannon Productions was a British amateur video production company known for its many reconstructions of missing episodes of Doctor Who.

Overview Edit

Loose Cannon used 16mm telerecordings, telesnaps and audio recordings, supplemented with new visual elements, including CGI animation. It created original interviews with Doctor Who cast and crew to supplement the videotapes and for Marco Polo, a new introductory sequence with Mark Eden reprising his role as the title character. It some cases, in the absence of actual footage or other photos, as with their reconstruction of Mission to the Unknown, their duties involved virtually recreating the story from scratch.

Loose Cannon was founded by Rick Brindell in December 1997. He first created a reconstruction of The Macra Terror. Other members include Dean Rose and Russ Port. Loose Cannon member Derek Handley now assists the BBC DVD releases. Stuart Palmer helped run the website.

The website was shut down in 2005, which means that their recons VHS won't be available anymore. At this time, several of the lost episodes were released as animations by the BBC.
