Episode 86 – An Aussie in Time and Space – Janet Fielding
Eugenia and Gerri continue their series of Doctor Who podcasts in this fiftieth year of the longest running Sci Fi show in Television history. This episode brings us back to fifth Doctor and his companion Tegan Jovanka. What is interesting to Eugenia and Gerri is that Tegan played by Janet Fielding is an Australian playing an Australian! Tegan was feisty, stubborn, and like most Aussies a bit of “telling it like it is” who even was mentioned by the eleventh Doctor as “a gobby Australian”. This is not, in Australia, considered an insult. But, what this really meant that to Australian fans ”hey maybe we could get into the Tardis too”, (well, we know that the show is Sci Fi, but we can all fantasise, and suspend belief when watching all these shows LOL)! So, in this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk with Janet Fielding about her time on Doctor Who, as an agent to actors in particular being Paul McGann’s agent when he got the role of the Doctor in Doctor Who and again working with Doctor Who in Big Finish. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Rob and Sandy from Culture Shock Events for allowing them to interview Janet Fielding.
