Join Michele as she presents intervews with writers Andrew Smith, John Dorney and Matt Fitton. The trio of writers for Big Finish sit down with Ian and discuss their trade and Doctor Who at Big Finish Day 4 held earlier this year. Just what does it take to become a writer – and how then do you end up giving words to Gallifrey’s greatest son?
Many thanks to Big Finish Productions and to 10th Planet Events.
James and Tom will be back next week with Episode 256 to discuss ideology in Doctor Who! You have been warned.
Enjoy the show.
In the second of our Writers Specials, we speak to Tommy Donbavand and Simon Guerrier about writing for Doctor Who. Tommy talks about his recent Eleventh Doctor and Clara novel, Shroud of Sorrow and Simon about giving words to the Second Doctor and Jamie in is his Destiny of the Doctors audio, Shadow of Death.
Join Stephen, Tony and Laura as they guide you through the interviews – oh, and there’s a cameo from a truly ghostly voice from the DWP’s murky past……
Join us for Episode 234 next week for our review of Big Finish’s Light at the End.
In a bonus edition of The Doctor Who Podcast, we bring you the first in a mini-series of interviews with writers who have become synonymous with Doctor Who fiction, either through writing books, Big Finish audios or extensive articles for Doctor Who Magazine – or in many cases, all three!
First up, it’s Jonathon Morris who takes time out from his appearance at Big Finish Day 3 to speak to us. Jonny’s back catalogue of Doctor Who output is vast – and is still growing. He’s the author of over 40 Big Finish audio plays and four original Doctor Who novels for the BBC. Check out his blog – it makes facinating reading.
In this interview he talks to Tony and Laura, our intrepid roving reporters at about writing, missing episodes and how it feels to put words into the mouths of actors we became familiar with by watching them on the telly all those years ago.
Many thanks to both Big Finish Productions and to 10th Planet Events for allowing us to cover the event. Enjoy the show!
