Classic Characters, New Adventures: In this episode, Alex Fitch talks to the creators of audio dramas that bring classic characters back to life in new adventures: actor / director ‘Invokal’ and writer R.R. Molyneux discuss their fan produced Doctor Who audio serial Tales of a Timelord, a series of nine stories spread over 22 episodes which tell the tale of an incarnation of the Doctor around their 20th regeneration, returning to adventures after a millennium in solitary confinement.
Plus: writer, actor and director Nigel Fairs discusses his series Shilling and Sixpence Investigate, a pastiche of Agatha Christie with David Warner and Celia Imrie, spun off from his long running saga ‘The Morlington Mysteries’, which is performed live at various venues around the country. Alex and Nigel also look at the latter’s scripts for new audio episodes of Sapphire and Steel, The Tomorrow People and Doctor Who for Big Finish Productions.
