There have been many who have taken on the role of Doctor Who and say that the eighth Doctor was the one that killed off the series. Although a hit in the UK it did not make it in the US and 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 and caused many a discussion in the Whovian universe, was the Doctor half human, should he kiss his companion, was he above all of this? The human bit did not survive but by heck the kissing did!!! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss all of the above and have a special treat for all Whovians. They have the eighth Doctor and his companion. Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook 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 www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for the opportunity to have an interview with both of the stars of this iconic movie.
In this fiftieth year of Doctor Who what do Eugenia and Gerri have for you? On the 23 Nov 2013 Doctor Who turns fifty and they are celebrating this with a special series of Doctor Who episodes. In this first episode in a series of many, they have something special they have an interview with a Doctor, the fifth Doctor of this fiftieth year television iconic show? Who happens to be Gerri’s favourite Doctor, the youngest, the handsomest and very talented Peter Davison (well she thinks so)! Peter took up the mantle of the Doctor in 1981, 32 years ago. During Peter’s tenure as the Doctor the TARDIS was a bit crowded as he had more companions that anyone else and even had one of them trying to kill him! At the time of the interview Peter was looking at doing his own fiftieth year Doctor Who Celebration documentary of his own so keep an eye out. They would like to thank Sandy and Rob from Culture Shock Events www.cultureshockevents.com for the opportunity to interview Peter and hope that enjoy the podcast.
In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri along with guest presenter Jo Shrapnel discuss what we all want to be and that is a Doctor Who companion. Not only do they talk about those that have gone before them (well we all can hope!) they try to define what constitutes being a companion. A show that the three enjoy (a lot) means that the names of characters just come out one after the other and even by the end of their discussion they still don’t cover all of the companions. The interview in this podcast is Louise Jameson, whose character Leela a “Sevateem” savage travelled with the 4th Doctor. Louise tells us about her time on the show, THAT costume and of course Tom Baker. Who is your favourite or most disliked companion? Listen and see if you agree with Eugenia, Gerri or Jo’s comments. Eugenia and Gerri thank Bill and Adele from Armageddon Expo New Zealand for the interview with Louise www.armageddonexpo.com
Eugenia and Gerri continue their series of Doctor Who podcasts in this fiftieth year of the longest running Sci Fi series. This episode brings us back to the 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”. But, what this really meant to Australian fans was ”hey maybe we could get into the Tardis too”, (well, we know that the show is Sci Fi, but we can all fantasise)! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk with Janet about her time on Doctor Who, as an agent to actors and again working with Big Finish. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Rob and Sandy from Culture Shock Events for allowing them to interview Janet. Catch them at Culture Shock Events, www.cultureshockevents.com for upcoming events.
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!
And The Doctor Will See You Now
