Oh my giddy aunt!
If there was a Doctor that many commentators said inspired Matt Smith in the creation of his Doctor’s persona, it was one Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor.
Trevor and Tom explore the era of this most brilliant of Doctors in the first part of our retrospective of his work before, during and after his time on Doctor Who.
In this first part, we look at his time before Doctor Who, and cover his first season in 1966.
Stay tuned, for later in the week we release the second part of our series on Patrick Troughton, the cosmic hobo.
or.. Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with some companions
Tom and James went on a works outing last week up to the wilds of Derbyshire to see what was going on at Whooverville 2, the convention that boasts being the only such event run in an engine shed. And they are right (we checked).
Tom was lucky enough to be the on-stage interviewer for second Doctor companion and all round screamer Deborah Watling. Deborah played Victoria Waterfield alongside the 2nd Doctor from 1967-1969. With the kind permission of the Whooverville bods we bring that interview to you in this episode.
The boys also managed to back Sophie Aldred (or Ace to her legions of fans) into a corner and ask her some questions. And to round off the day, Tom intimidated a Dalek.
When in doubt, geek out!
Tom and Trevor are in the caravan this week and thought it was time for the DWP to start one of their quite famous geek outs.
We did then quite a lot back when we were with the DWO WhoCast, so it only seems fitting to start them on the DWP.
We discuss the recent release of the Creature from the Pit DVD, the Doctor Who proms, and just what is a companion?
We also try and stump each other with some devlishly difficult Doctor Who quiz questions.
