Doctor Who: The TARDIS on Teesside airs on BBC Tees on Boxing Day

The TARDIS on Teesside Uncovers the Origins of Kasterborous!

In early December Kasterborous editor Christian Cawley visited his local BBC building to talk about Doctor Who with presenter Bob Fischer. It was a very interesting evening…

Just one of many contributors (including Teesside-born Rose actor Mark Benton, and Neil and Sue Perryman of Adventures with the Wife in Space), the show featured Christian discussing being a young Doctor Who fan in the 1980s, being shot by the Master’s TCE and regenerating and even the origins of this very website

You can now listen to The TARDIS on Teesside for another 6 days via the BBC iPlayer service at the BBC Tees website, or tune into the repeat at 3pm on New Year’s Eve.

Even if it was Kasterborous-free, this is a fascinating look at how Doctor Who has inspired a group of different fans in a small region of the North East. Please don’t miss it!
