In the early years of Doctor Who companions dying was not common as in recent years. So when Adric, from planet E-space (a parallel universe) Alzarious was killed stopping a freighter from crashing into Earth, it was a shock (Earthshock in fact)!!. Adric’s loss was compounded when the ending credits screened in silence over the top of his crushed star badge. In this episode Gerri and Eugenia interview Matthew Waterhouse, who played the mathematical genius Adric alongside Doctors 4 & 5. Matthew a fan of Doctor Who long before joining the cast still loves recording Doctor Who, “Target” audio Books. He is also an author including writing his autobiography ‘Blue Box Boy’. Find out more about Matthew Waterhouse at www.matthewwaterhouse.com But, wait there’s more! As a bonus Gerri and Eugenia have added an interview with Rupert Young, Sir Leon from Merlin. So why Rupert you may ask? Enjoy as you listen to Rupert explaining how he has never appeared in Doctor Who even though his IMDB states that he has. Gerri and Eugenia thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for the interview with Matthew plus Daniel from Supanova www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from Lionel Midford Publicity www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the opportunity to interview Rupert.
In this fiftieth year of Doctor Who what do Eugenia and Gerri have for you? On the 23 November 2013 Doctor Who turns fifty and they will be celebrating this with a special series of Doctor Who episodes. In this first episode in a series of many, they have something very special they have an interview with a Doctor! Which Doctor you may ask, well, the fifth of this fiftieth year television iconic show? Who is Gerri’s favourite Doctor? The youngest, the handsomest and very talented Peter Davison (well Gerri thinks anyway)! Peter took up the mantle of the Doctor in 1981, 32 years ago. During Peter’s tenure as the Doctor the TARDIS got a bit crowded, as he had more companions that anyone else and even had one of them trying to kill him! Peter has been in many iconic television shows including All Creatures Great and Small, Meet the Braithwaite’s and A Very Unusual Practice. At the time of the interview Peter was looking at doing his own fiftieth year Doctor Who Celebration documentary so keep an eye out. They would like to thank Sandy and Rob from Culture Shock Events http://www.cultureshockevents.com for the opportunity to interview Peter and hope you enjoy the podcast.
In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri give you something a little different! Eugenia is an avid yes avid Dr Who fan and well although Gerri loves it too, she was not lucky enough to get to go to the convention that starred the fifth Doctor, even though he is Gerri’s favourite and yes you might hear the odd sob from her in this podcast. What you will hear is Peter at a convention where he is asked the questions that fans want to know! Peter is a great entertainer and you will hear him discuss his time as the Doctor, his comments on the new series and his relationships with David Tennant and Matt Smith (Doctor’s 10 and 11).
