Happy New Year everyone! And what better way is there to start the New Year off than looking back at one of 2013’s most popular and successful series of Doctor Who events?!
Lat year, the British Film Institute organised the wonderful Doctor Who at 50 – eleven monthly events, each of which celebrated a different era of the show. At least one full story was screened at each event and then a panel was held with Doctor Who alumni from each era. The events attracted Doctor Who stars from across the ages – from Tom Baker to David Tennant to Donald Tosh, the BFI was the place to celebrate Who in 2013.
In this episode, James talks to Justin Johnson and Dick Fiddy from the BFI – the co-curators and organisers of the Doctor Who at 50 events and discuss nearly getting Christopher Eccleston, the ticketing decisions and basically how much they love Doctor Who!
Tune in for Episode 242 in a couple of weeks’ time – be warned: it’s our predictions show!
