Elisabeth Sladen presents another time-travelling journey through the history of Doctor Who on BBC radio and television. Includes Doctor Who-themed features, from drama and comedy to interviews and behind-the-scenes items.
Our good friend the Doctor may continually jump from the past to the present and back to the future, but he's never really gone away. Since 1963 he has had a massive influence on our popular culture - as this second volume of rare material illustrates. Doctor Who has long been a favourite source of inspiration for comedy programs including The Mary Whitehouse Experience, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and Dead Ringers. It has also provided an endless source of features for programs such as Nationwide, Pebble Mill at One, Woman's Hour and Talkback. All of these, and more, are featured here. We hear from no less than seven of the first eight actors to play the Doctor on TV: Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann all talk about what it's like to play the role, and the effect it has had on their lives. The Doctor's companions are also well featured, with Elisabeth Sladen, Louise Jameson, Matthew Waterhouse and John Leeson popping up in interviews recorded during their time on the program.
