Gerri and Eugenia are avid Doctor Who fans and have been for many a year. Consequently they have witnessed a few of the regenerations of the various Doctors over the years. In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia discuss their reactions about the many faces of the Doctor. Which Doctors mean the most to them and which of the "faces" did they like the best. Also in this podcast listen to Scott Liston, from First Contact Conventions who is not only a Fanboy but has brought some of the more prominent Sci Fi actors to Australia. Check out his website at www.firstcontactconventions.com.au
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
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.
Gerri and Eugenia continue their homage to the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who! In this episode they discuss the companions of the new series, from the Christopher Eccleston episodes to Matt Smith's. Which companions do they like the best, and which ones are they not too fond off how they interacted with the Doctor and what they contributed! The exiting thing that happens in this episode is that they have a 'New Who' companion, well, a reluctant companion! It is the one and only Jackie Tyler, Rose's mum. The wonderful, and friendly Camille Coduri. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Paul and Sarah from The Doctor Who Club of Australia www.dwca.org.au for the chance to interview Camille. This club has fantastic events throughout the year with one convention annually, give their website a look.
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.
