We may still be quite some time away from the nebulous time of “Autumn” and this new series of Doctor Who that keeps getting dangled in front of us like the proverbial carrot, but the team at Tiny Rebel Games is taking on the noble work of keeping us covered with new content. What’s more, they’re giving us just the right distraction to keep us from fully realizing how mind-dumbing our jobs are, how long the train commute is, and how long we’re spending waiting for the oven to preheat.
In their latest undertaking, the development team at Tiny Rebel Games has promised us the release of “Doctor Who: Infinity” early this summer. As we did a few years back, we got the chance to call and chat with them about the game, find out what distinguishes it from their previous title, “Doctor Who: Legacy”, and try and determine if we should really be all that excited for it.
(Spoilers? You really should…and that’s before Michelle Gomez, Katy Manning, George Mann, Ingrid Oliver, and a host of other renown Whovian stars enter the picture.)
Staying just safely within the bounds of professionalism and good taste, we spend a few minutes chatting and laughing with Noel Clarke, our beloved Mickey Smith, recorded live from the festivities at the third annual Long Island Doctor Who convention.
“He smelled of honey, he always let his tea cool far too long before he drank it, and he let me win at Scrabble…I think.” — Charlie Pollard, on the Eighth Doctor
Recorded live from the third Long Island Doctor Who (or L.I. Who 3) convention in November of 2015, we sit down once again with the Eighth Doctor himself, Paul McGann, and discuss the convention circuit, his latest projects with Big Finish, and celebrating his birthday with fans in New York.
(Also in this supplemental cast: our reaction to the announcement of the newest Doctor Who companion, Pearl “Bill” Mackie!)
Long Island Doctor Who arrived during the weekend of the Series 8 finale, and our own Keir Hansen was there to enjoy it with 1,300 other Whovians. (To read his response and reactions to this fantastic convention, click here and live vicariously through him.)
But it wasn’t all fun and frivolity. We actually put him to work, and had him interview none other than Frazer Hines, Nicola Bryant, Terrance Dicks, Colin Baker, and Paul McGann. This week, we share those interviews with you, and gain a look behind the scenes with these tremendous talents.
