I’m ready for my close-up special: Doctor in the TARDIS
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 recorded 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 Who writer turned award winning short story creator Rob Shearman about their love of the BBC institution.
