    Writer, Neil Gaiman

    In this very special episode, I revisit an interview I did with Neil Gaiman back in 2013. It's a surprisingly deep, revelatory chat - we talk about overcoming writers block, how to actually sit the hell down and get writing done, and we go deep on Neil's love for Doctor Who, what it's like to writer on the show, and the pressures of running something as big as Sandman. If you're an aspiring author or a Whovian, this is a rare glimpse into the mind of one of our greatest living writers. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Doctor Who's Ace, Sophie Aldred

    Doctor Who's Ace, Sophie Aldred

    The iconic, anarchistic and utterly fierce companion to the seventh Doctor, Ace, is in the house! I talked with the wonderful Sophie Aldred about all things Ace - how she got the role, how much of Ace is actually her, and where the character was going to end up before the show's cancellation. And yes, there is extensive jacket talk!
    In fact, this episode is very Ace heavy! It's a jam-packed look at one of Doctor Who's most enduring companions, and we hope you enjoy it.

    If you've ever wanted to hear how someone makes the music for Doctor Who happen, this episode is right up your alley. I sat down with brand new Doctor Who composer, Segun Akinola, who took over from Murray Gold for the new series! We dig into his influences, his favourite musical moments on the show, and heaps more.
    We also take a look at everyone's favourite robot dog (I hope), K-9!

    Writer of Demons of the Punjab, Vinay Patel

    This week on Doctor Who, we were hit with a heartbreaking look at partition, a horrifying and pivotal moment in history. Writer of the episode, Vinay Patel, sat down with me to chat about the pressures one feels doing not just their first episode of Who ever, but an episode that has such a weight behind it. We also talk about how much of a dish David Tennant is. Less important, clearly, but fun.
    And in this week's Companion Piece: Doctor Martha Jones!

    Have you ever wondered how the Doctor is coping with her gender shift? Have you ever wanted someone to stay in an elevator just to aid the comedic potential of an interview? And have you ever wanted to hear the thoughts of prolific Whovian, writer, engineer and broadcaster, Yassmin Abdel-Magied? Then this is the episode for you!
    We also talk custard creams, look at the debacle that was Kamelion (failed robot companion of the Fifth Doctor), and more!

    Doctor Who's Yaz, Mandip Gill

    This week, Mandip Gill (who plays Yaz on the new season) calls up for a chat and we talk everything from the emotional impact of shooting Rosa to the possibilities behind a RuPaul's Drag Race / Doctor Who crossover episode! We also discuss the finer points of companion to the Fourth Doctor, Leela, and address the fact that Mr. Big from Sex and the City is now apparently in Doctor Who!

Have a listen!

Paul's a great talker and knows his Doctor Who well! Entertaining, charming and offering some great discussion on my favourite TV show. Looking forward to the rest of the series!

Brilliant!

Paul's love of all things Doctor Who is infectious, and a delight to listen to. As someone who was raised on Doctor Who but has not watched a lot of the more recent series, this podcast has made me want to pick up watching it again.
