The Pescatons
Serial RD01

Written by Victor Pemberton
Directed by Harley Usil and Don Norman

.
Introduction
Doctor Who and the Pescatons came about through a conversation between former Doctor Who script editor (and writer of Fury of the Deep) Victor Pemberton and Argo Records producer Don Norman.  The duo shared many interests, incuding that of ecology, or "Green Ideals".  Also keen on conservation was Tom Baker, and it was through this that Norman and Pemberton were able to interest him in doing a Doctor Who record, the first time a Doctor Who story was written epsecially for the audio medium.  The story was written, aggrement was obtained from the BBC, and Elisabeth Sladen and Bill Mitchell signed on to play Sarah Jane and Zor, respectively. Doctor Who and the Pescatons saw release in 1976 on Argo records (ZSW 564) between seasons 13 and 14.  Since then, it has been re-released many times on LP, cassette and on CD by Silva Screen records (FILMCD 707) and novelised in the Target range (#153), all are now out of print.
