Episode 95 – Doctor Eight is Great – Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook
There have been many actors who have taken on the role of Doctor Who! Some say that the eighth Doctor was the one that killed off the series in the 1996 Doctor Who movie and although it was a hit in the UK it did not meet its intended audience in the US and therefore did not progress to a series as was hoped. This showing of the Doctor introduced some new concepts of the Doctor and his first kiss on screen. These concepts and the kiss proved to cause many a discussion throughout the Whovian universe, was the Doctor half human, should he kiss his companion, was he above all of this? Well the human bit may not have survived but by heck the kissing did!!! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss all of the above and more and have a special treat for all Whovians. They interview not only the eighth Doctor but they also have his companion. Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook who played Dr Grace Holloway in a rare joint interview discussing the movie, how it was made and how they felt about the movie, their expectations and all the whys and whats at the time! Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions http://www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for the opportunity to have an interview with both of the stars of this iconic movie.
