Episode 100 of Doctor Who: Panel to Panel, the podcast produced by Jeremy Bement about Doctor Who comics, is live, and I’m honoured to have been asked to take part in this landmark episode.
Jeremy has racked up an impressive range of interviews with a huge number of comic creators over a century of well-received podcasts, including, most recently, Nick Abadzis, Paul Cornell, Richard Dinnick, Jessica Martin and James Peaty.
I’ve talked to him before about my involvement in Doctor Who comics, but this time round we looked back at the Third Doctor story I edited for Titan Comics, “Heralds of Destruction”, written by Paul Cornell. Plus, of course, we talked in a non-spoilery way about the Seventh Doctor mini-series, “Operation Volcano”.
As usual, we talked about creating comics in general, and we touched on what it’s been like being reunited with writer Andrew Cartmel and artist Christopher Jones on this new tale.
Plus, Graeme Burk of the Reality Bomb podcast chats with Jeremy about their comic likes and dislikes!
Reviews, news and more also await you in this two-hour landmark episode!
