Earliest Doctor Who Memory: The Cyberman invading the Tardis at the end of Episode one of Attack of the Cybermen, threatening the ever lovely Nicola Bryant!

And on the opposite end of the spectrum: Any Sylvester McCoy Story, Twin Dilemma, Timelash etc, Aliens of London, World War 3, New Earth, Fear Her

Favourite Doctor Who TV Story of all-time: The Caves of Androzani/Revelation of the Daleks- huge formative TV experienes, and the reason I went into drama directing. The stories are layers and textured in both narrative and character. They're also both embued with a particular perversion and coruption that gives them a wonderfully decadent feel, more adult than Torchwood could ever hope to be.
Other favourites: Genesis of the Daleks and most other Early Tom Baker. Patrick Troughton in general with special notes to Power and Evil of the Daleks.
For the New Series, Dalek, Fathers Day, The Empty Child, The Doctor Dances, Tooth and Claw, The Girl in the Fireplace, The Shakespere Code.

Favourite Doctor: Early Tom Baker when he was dangerous and alien before he lost his edge.

Favourite Companion: Peri- I can give you two good reasons. Jamie perfect foil and support for the Doctor.

Favourite Doctor Who Novel: Only really read Target novelisations- loath New Adventures. Have a fondness for Rememberance of the Daleks- boy was the program a disapointment having not seen it before I read the book!

Favourite Doctor Who Audio: Whisphers of Terror

Favourite Doctor Who Website: Tachyon TV by a mile.

Favourite non-Who Website: IMDB

Favourite Film: tough one. Alien Blade Runner, Billy Wilder movies, early Star Wars (especially Empire- practically perfect) Indiana Jones. Sweet Smell of Success, Outland, The Thing,The Empire Strikes Back, Payback, Leon, Cypher, The Sweet Smell of Success, Some Like it Hot, The Appartment, Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The Third Man,  Batman Begins, Deep Rising, The Fortune Cookie, Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters, Where Eagles Dare, Fear is the Key, When Eight Bells Toll, Get Carter (the original), Relic, Doctor Strangelove, The Incredibles, The Abyss, Get Shorty, Arsenic and Old Lace, Casino Royal, Pan's Labyrinth

Favourite TV Show: Farscape- by far the most imaginative Sci-fi show of the last ten maybe even twenty years. What started as muppets in space rapidly became a wonderfully textured, layered and heart breaking show. RTD eat your heart out.

I enjoy listening to: Dean Martin (and the Rat-Pack in general), Vangelis, Movie Soundtracks, especially by John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Hans Zimmer, John Barry, (early) James Horner, Roy Budd, John Debney, David Shire, Hank Marvin, Ben Folds, The Divine Comedy, The Beach Boys

I enjoy reading: Alistair Maclean novels, Bill Bryson, Robert Heinlein, Philip K. Dick, Frank Hampson

Other sci-fi I enjoy: Huge Blakes 7 fan, Star Cops, any Anderson up to Space 1999, HG2G, Red Dwarf, TOS Star Trek (looks less dated than the crappy 80s series, The Prisoner,

Thing that irritates me the most: Bad drivers, Make-up artists who can't do their FUCKING JOB! Politicians

Guilty Pleasures: watching bad bad movies- research to stop me making the same mistakes


Dan, I live in North Wales if you fancy a get-together!

Sounds good to me mate- always like your Who reviews and your Torchwood bloodbaths so sure we'd have a few things to chat about.
