If you listen to the Kasterborous podKast (with a “K) you may know that editor Christian Cawley (um, me) was recently interviewed for a BBC local radio documentary, The TARDIS on Teesside.
Well, thanks to host Bob Fischer (writer of Wiffle Lever to Full!: Daleks, Death Stars and Dreamy-eyed Nostalgia at the Strangest Sci-fi Conventions and popular BBC Tees radio presenter) we can tell you that the show – trailed above – will be broadcast at 12 noon on Boxing Day, December 26th (repeated on New Year’s Eve at 3pm).
Not in Teesside? You’ll be able to utilise the BBC website to listen to The TARDIS on Teesside with little interruption to your normal activities (other than a two-hour collection of wonderful stories and recollections from Doctor Who fans based around the River Tees.
Alongside Christian, those appearing in the show include Martin Shipley and Brian Burr of Stockton-on-Tees’ popular Who-ray! store, not to mention actor Mark Benton – Doctor hunter Clive in 2005’s Rose – also of this parish. Meanwhile in the trailer you can hear (among others) Neil Perryman and Sue Perryman, the latter the star of the former’s Wife in Space blog and book.
It would also seem that this piece of deliciously bonkers nostalgia will appear in one form or another…
Don’t miss it!
