Episode #128 of Doctor Who: Panel to Panel is live, featuring an interview with former Doctor Who Magazine editor Gary Gillatt.
Giving his first ever podcast interview, Gary, now Deputy editor on Inside Soap magazine, talks about becoming a fan, his tenure as DWM editor between 1995 and 2000, his thoughts on the new series and more.
Along the way, Gary reveals how Doctor Who was part of his life from an early age growing up in Blackpool, the theme music from the show wafting into his street from the well-known exhibition in the town, that memory buoyed by its owner living on his street and driving “Bessie” home from work.
Gary’s also enthusiastic about the comic strip in Doctor Who Magazine – sadly still absent from the title, with no news on when it might return – talking about the title’s early strips, and how he felt it should be treated. It’s a fantastic, opinionated, but fascinating chat and well worth a listen.
As ever, this podcast’s ace host, Jeremy Bement, also brings us reviews, news and more. Always worth a listen!
