So the day is fast approaching. The day we get to experience a new Doctor. No, I’m not talking about Capaldi’s debut coming sometime in August, I am talking about Andrew Chalmers playing the main man in the fan produced audio adventure Doctor Who Dark Journey.
With episode one due out real soon, I sat down for a nice Skype chat with Director Mike (M.A.) Tamburro, Andrew ‘The Doctor’ Chalmers and Clayton ‘Claytec’ Turner.
Before we started recording I discovered that Andrew is a fan of the Canadian band Rush. Against my better judgment I still went ahead with the interview because Mike wasn’t a fan. At least, that’s what he told me. Rush still came up more than once later on…
Take a listen as we find out where Andrew’s version of the Doctor comes from, lovingly slag Pip and Jane Baker, talk a little Tom Baker, levitation and along the way mention Dark Journey once or twice.
As mentioned in the interview, the first episode will be live Saturday June 7 at the classic time slot of 5:35pm. You still have a chance to win some Tom Baker swag, head over to their facebook page for more details!
