Best of the Best
Ever wondered who was behind producing classic Doctor Who DVDs Whovians have on their shelves, well wonder no longer! Gerri and Eugenia have been able to interview some of the people who are responsible for us to revisit the classic stories, but also to complete some of the missing stories so that we can still watch them. Firstly, they interview Dan Hall (who at the time of the interview was) Commissioning Editor of Classic Doctor Who DVD production. Secondly, an interview with Austen Atkinson, founder of Planet 55 Studios, along with one of the animators responsible for animating missing episodes from The Reign of Terror, a 1st Doctor story as well as Moonbase, a 2nd Doctor story. It was through this painstaking animating process that fans around the world are able to view completed stories that were thought lost forever. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank The Doctor Who Club of Australia, www.dwca.org.au for the opportunity of these interviews during one their Whovention events based in Sydney, Australia.
Farscape, what a show? How many of you have watched this Australian show? Well, Gerri and Eugenia are proud to say “Made in Australia”, this is a show that breaks the mould in the use of Muppets! Well not Muppets but animatronics, done so well that you actually see the characters as real and find that you invest them with feeling and reality and the show is full of fun, suspense and damn good action! We had black and white, red and blue skin, tentacles coming from the head and even a ship that was a sentient being! Jim Henson’s Creature workshop was able to create characters that were multi-layer as well as a few “nut-jobs”, action heroes and some more really, really nutjobs! In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia get to talk with one of the actors from the series none other than Gigi Edgley who played Chiana, the black and white alien who may be classed as one of the nutjobs! Gigi now hosts Brian Henson’s show, “Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge” where you get to see how animatronics are made and used in movies and TV. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Gigi for the interview, catch her at her website www.gigiedgley.com, Facebook https://www.facebook.com/gigiedgley.fanpage?fref=ts and on twitter @GigiEdgley.
That show about the girl with a “stick” and “attitude”! In this episode guess which show Gerri and Eugenia are talking about, yes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Having talked about this show before, but as you know, they can wax lyrical about anything! They discuss the strong character growth across the seven seasons and still feel that the show stands up today, yes even with the clothes and the hairstyles! So, whom are they talking with in this show, the lovely funny and very talented Amber Benson, actor, author, director and producer! Amber Benson is also a big “geek” into sci fi and fantasy, comic books and more! Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Culture Shock Events, catch them at www.cultureshockevents.com to see what events they have coming to a city near you.
In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about the hero! Heroes such as Robin Hood and King Arthur ignite our imagination allowing us to take part in stories where “might” is fought and good wins! Stories such as these have inspired us for thousands of years and television and film, have since their invention given us many interpretations of these stories! Eugenia and Gerri talk about the variations over the years and how film and program makers can at times sanitise history and the violence, this may be fairly serious subject, but they don’t talk about it for long because they have three interviews from such shows with Alfie Allen, Theon Greyjoy from Game of Thrones, Tom Hopper, Sir Percival From Merlin and Mark Ryan from Robin of Sherwood, armour, swords and arrows who could want more? They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from www.supanova.com.au www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for Tom and Alfie and www.armageddonexpo.com/nz/ for Mark’s interview.
Finally, a big action movie for the beloved little action figures of G.I. Joe. Join Channing Tatum (Hawk), Sienna Miller (The Baroness), Marlon Wayans (Ripcord) and Rachel Nichols (Scarlett) as they take time out from fighting the evil Cobra Command to talk to Women Talk Sci Fi.
