On the eve of the season finale of the current series of Doctor Who, Alex Fitch looks at the enduring legacy of the show in a trio of interviews originating at a ‘Who’ convention in the Home Counties. Alex talks to former Doctor Sylvester McCoy, former Time Lord nemesis (and honorary Doctor) Michael Jayston, and also to San Franciscan cosplay expert Johanna Mead about her creating Who inspired costumes and contributing to the anthology ‘Chicks dig Time Lords’.
