Colin Baker and His Kangazang! Gang
Sixth Doctor Colin Baker and former Torchwood guest actress and Sherlock star Claire Cage have provided voice talent for a new audioplay based on the Terry Cooper novel Kangazang! and SFX is giving away three copies!
Kangazang! is the story of the quest for the mythical Universal Remote Control, a task undertaken by Jeff Spooner and his barber-from-another-world, Ray Scump.Â Our own Mez Burdett has likened the plot to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and this description from SFX seems to back him up:
Aided by two badly programmed robots and an army of warrior Space Hoppers, the pair dive and try to dodge the biggest threats in the galaxy: Supreme Overlord Kelvin (emperor of Skragg), the terminally depressed Emo people and Queen Shelley (a bald, cannibalistic Amazon who has a score to settle from way back)…
…Not to mention they’re doing all this with a spaceship made out of human hair.Â Kangazang! comes with three discs plus a DVD that sees Colin Baker talk Doctor Who, sci-fi, and Kangazang! with probable enthusiasm.Â You’ll win a copy of Kangazang! if your name is drawn from a pile of people who have correctly answered this question:
Name the first story to feature Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor.
- The Caves of Androzani
- Time and the Rani
- The Twin Dilemma
It’s a bit harder to answer this than SFX’s Kangazang! competition makes it out to be, because we really don’t know how they define “feature.”Â But we’ll give you a useless hint – the middle one is out.
