Doctor Who Magazine 426

He’s the man who provides the voices for the Doctor’s greatest enemies, the Daleks and the Cybermen – and at long last, DWM has caught up with him for an in-depth interview! NICHOLAS BRIGGS tells all about his time as a Dalek, his life-long love of Doctor Who and just what he can do with his ring voice modulator…

“It’s great for people to be able to hear the voice on set,” he explains. “The way I say my lines does change depending on how David, Chris, or Matt say their lines to me. The Daleks actually being there makes such a difference. Much of the time, the cast is acting against silver balls on sticks, in front of a green screen, but Daleks move around, flash their lights, speak like they want to kill you, like a voice from hell…”

    I’m glad to see DWM giving Briggs some coverage. I hope they go into his long involvement with fan-made productions, not just the Big Finish stuff, but all those BBV and Reeltime independent films (such as the brilliant Airzone Solution and In Memory Alone which was one of the best Sixth Doctor and Peri stories not to feature the Sixth Doctor and Peri!) that kept the flame burning during the dark 90s.


    • Got to agree their, 23skidoo, he has been the quiet man of Doctor Who for far too long!

      Who can forget his turn in the DWM strip as the (fake) Ninth Doctor? (I realise it wasn’t actually Briggs, people, but an illustration based on him, but still ;) )
