a real world point of view
Reeltime Pictures is a British video production company known for its many documentaries about Doctor Who, particularly the Myth Makers series of interviews. Reeltime also produced Wartime, the first independently-made spin-off video set in the Doctor Who universe (though not featuring the Doctor himself) and several short Doctor Who-inspired comedy films such as "The Corridor Sketch" which was later included on BBC Video DVD releases of the main Doctor Who series, such as The Beginning.
A regular contributor to Reeltime was Nicholas Briggs, who worked as an interviewer and writer with the Myth Makers series and also starred in the Myth Runner parody film. Briggs also worked with Audio Visuals, BBV Productions and Big Finish Productions and later would work for the main Doctor Who series from 2005 onwards.
Reeltime Pictures is still producing occasional entries in the Myth Makers series. In August 2009 it issued an episode focusing on Telos Publishing.
