On today’s Resonance FM radio show Panel Borders, Alex Fitch is broadcasting an extract from the SCI-FI-LONDON panel on Doctor Who spin-offs, recorded in May 2013 at the Stratford PictureHouse Cinema, East London.
Joining Alex are artists Adrian Salmon and Mark Buckingham plus writers Scott Gray and Andrew Cartmel (also the TV script editor from 1987-1989) who are discussing the various adventures of the Doctor in sequential art, including the ‘wilderness years’ when the show was off air in the 1990s when comics were the only continuing visual adventures of the Time Lord.
