Radio Who

Thursday the 21st of February sees the return of BBC Radio 4′s talk show with a twist – Chain Reaction – and not only are the new TARDIS pairing on the show, but the series has a distinctly Doctor Who flavour…

Chain Reaction is recorded in front of a live audience, and cleverly dispenses with the formality of a regular host with the interviewee becoming the subsequent edition’s interviewer…

The first of four interviews sees Catherine Tate beginning the chain with an interview with Doctor Who star David Tennant.

The following week, David Tennant then interviews Richard Wilson (The Empty Child‘s Doctor Constantine, and best known as One Foot in the Grave’s Victor Meldrew).

Richard Wilson will then interview Arabella Weir – who not only was once David Tennant’s roommate, and mother to one of his God-children, but in 2003 appeared as an Earth-bound, drink and shopping-obsessed incarnation of the Doctor in Big Finish’s Doctor Who Unbound series!

The final installment sees Weir interviewing fellow Fast Show member Paul Whitehouse. I haven’t yet found a Doctor Who connection from Whitehouse, but I’m sure he enjoys the series…
