Not one but five Doctors talk in the new edition of Doctor Who Magazine (465) – that’s right, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann all in one issue!
This November sees the release of The Light at the End, a very special audio drama produced by Big Finish, which unites FIVE Doctors and a host of companions. DWM was present at the recording and spoke to the cast…
“It’s very important to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who,” says Sylvester McCoy, “and it’s so exciting, too. It’s really nice that people treat you in a very loving and caring way, and they like to see you. And it’s great to come together with the other actors who played Doctor Who.”
“You’re guaranteed that… that energy, and that presence, and that sense of humour,” adds Paul McGann, about Doctors uniting.
“To have us all together is a kind of critical mass of uranium,” Colin Baker smiles, “that should produce something pretty explosive!”
“I think it’s very important that we do something to commemorate the 50th anniversary,” agrees Peter Davison, “It’s very nice to be a part of something that’s been running for 50 years and is still going strong.”
“In Waitrose,” adds Tom Baker, “a certain kind of old lady finds me quite interesting…”
