Short but sweet - in the run-up to the launch of my long-awaited Ten Doctors Part Four I created this fun little comparison video showing the effects used to remove the Brigadier from shots in The Ten Doctors Part Two. It was only 33 seconds long and compared 4 separate shots from 'The Five Doctors' and their Brigadier-less counterparts in 'The Ten Doctors'. The music was an auto-generated copyright-free track that was created by a piece of software called 'scorefitter'.
I deleted it purely because no-one seemed to understand it. Comments on YouTube ranged from "What's this?" to "Nice, but why would you want to remove the Brigadier?". I therefore concluded it was easier to get rid of the video than spend the next year explaining why it existed.
