Interviews / Profiles Edit

  • Up a mountain in 11-inch platforms - Once a week between 1971 and 1973, scatty seventies companion Jo Grant muddled her way to Doctor Who iconhood. "They tried to make Jo a bit hip and groovy!" actress Katy Manning tells Peter Griffiths...
  • Out of the TARDIS: Sarah Sutton - Her Doctor Who character Nyssa, knew so little about "telebiogenesis" - but how much do we really know about actress Sarah Sutton? 20 posers plucked randomly from the now-infamous TARDIS tin should settle the score.
  • The man behind the masque - Scriptwriter Louis Marks, responsible for four serials spanning both Doctor Who's very beginnings and its glory in the seventies, remains as enthusiastic about the series as ever. "The whole concept was brilliant," he tells Peter Griffiths.
