As the anticipation reaches a fever pitch for the BBC America premiere of the new Doctor at April 17th, I’ve got a couple new videos for you to see. The first as Steven Moffat talking about the sonic screwdriver of all things, and the second is Matt Smith talks regeneration…and if you’ve been apprehensive of the new Doctor and producer, my spy network across the pond, who saw the first episode this past Saturday, indicates that there are no worries – everyone is impressed. Also, Techland has an interview with Matt Smith.
The fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, appeared in his first four-part serial, Robot, to inaugurate his new regeneration. For this first season, UNIT played a prominent role, and the Doctor had two companions, Ian Marter’s Harry Sullivan and Elisabeth Sladen’s Sarah Jane Smith. It was novelized by Terrance Dicks as The Giant Robot, and it is this book that Tom Baker reads, for BBC Radio 7, in 5 parts.
