This topic might have a better name.

Wouldn't it be more conventional for this to be called Newscaster 2 (Frontier in Space) or Newscaster 2 (Doctor Who and the Space War), considering that he doesn't actually appear in the TV story?

Talk about it here.

A newscaster from Earth once introduced a report about Congressman Brook and his populist anti-Draconian sentiments. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Space War)

Behind the scenes Edit

Though the character was cast for episode six of Frontier in Space, director Paul Bernard made a last-minute decision to use only the footage involving Congressman Brook. Thus the part gets a mention in the novelisation, as well as a credit on-screen and in Radio Times, but makes no actual appearance in televised Doctor Who. The novelisation makes no distinction, incidentally, between this newscaster and the one used in part one; it is possible, therefore, to believe that this character doesn't exist at all in any form of Doctor Who.
