The Two Interviews

Filed under: Audios,drwho,Four Doctors — Peter A @ 2:09 pm

The very splendid Big Finish subscribers’ magazine Vortex has published two interviews in the latest issue (PDF alternative here). They both discuss this month’s audio release of The Four Doctors.

One interview is with me, talking about pushing rocks up a hill. The other is with director Nicholas “The Daleks” Briggs, who reveals members of the guest cast (including an alumnus of Tom Baker’s Doctor Who).

The magazine is free to view online, though subscribers will also receive a printed copy through the mail shortly.

One minor disappointment for me is that the four episodes have now been edited together into a single episode. But I’m only disappointed because I had requested that four different versions of the theme tune be used. I wonder which one they’ll end up with? The story gives equal weight to each of the Doctors, in a way that The Three Doctors and The Five Doctors did not (because they were “of” their incumbent Doctor’s era).

Not long to go now before we all find out!

  1. The non-episodic thing is disappointing–it’d have been nice to hear the different Doctors’ themes (I liked the way this was done in Zagreus, although they weren’t exactly the Doctors in that story).

    Not sure if you can comment, Peter, but does “gives equal weight to each of the Doctors” mean that the Doctors don’t meet up in the story?
