And I have brought on a man who is no stranger to the whoniverse, if you will. It is Sean mason, who is an old friend, and is currently the writer of cutaway comics, Paradise towers paralyzed found, which is Doctor Who related media. Hello Sean, I know it's been a while since you've been on the podcast. It has hello. Thanks for having me. And let me plug some stuff. Absolutely. Well, well, let's hide it. Hide it. We're going to plug away. Look away. And why not? You've had your first three issues are now out and available to go and buy. I will leave the link in the show notes so people can go and do that. Even I haven't bought them yet, but I will be doing the second we finish this podcast and I'll binge the hell out of them. But why don't you tell us a little bit about that comic and the original kind of show and an idea it was based on? Yeah, great. So Paradise towers was a 7th doctor adventure and the one that really started to kind of solidify what they wanted to do with Sylvester McCoy's doctor. It's a little darker, but it's still quite fun. They ditched a lot of the lawn continuity that had been built up. And I ignored it, but they were just like, this is, this is bogging the show down. So let's just get back to adventures and romps and seeing where we can take out stories. And the script editor Andrew cartmel was a big fan of comics 2000 AD. All of the stuff that was happening..

"She taught me how to yodel. But this voice is nothing by comparison with today's guest. Jessica martin impressionist singer actor writer and illustrator. She was one of the voices. On the original spitting image was a punk werewolf for sylvester mccoy's doctor. Who spent two years in the west end with me and my girl and has late written and illustrated life drawing a charming and honest account of her showbiz trials and triumphs.

Remembrance of the daleks. It's the dollar. Because i thought after seen special weapons dalek in that story i was thinking. Why aren't the rest of the daleks is cool. Because that thing thing is the tank. I think was it tank and it was pretty impressive right. That's something it'd be afraid of this. Yeah and so it's like why didn't they make more of these. I kind of wondered about that probably couldn't love a tate as easily as the other. Maybe maybe not maybe not one of the trivia that wanted to mention although stressing that first syllable of exterminate sounding like eggs was new to television in the doctor who television. It was not the first time the notion appeared in doctor who interestingly enough it was actually originated by dr who writer paul cornell in the guy here wrote father's day for example or or human nature he He wrote a doctor who comics story called metamorphosis that was featured in the nineteen ninety three doctor who yearbook which i'm holding up right now as ray here very nice. I've got that bad boy should just showing once again my age as a doctor who fan but in this version of this comic strip version. That's the featured inside that yearbook. The seventh doctor. Actually is mentally turning into a dalek over the course of this story which is a cool idea right and yeah and he says in. It's in the panels eggs. Stir and then. That's the end of the pages panel. And then the next page as you flip it is our actual dollar crashing through the The airlock so It was a nice transition but but yeah the so. Paul.

I highly recommend you continue to do so. But that's not what we're here to talk about. What we're talking about is the exit of jodie whittaker and jim balls and it's going to happen it in two thousand twenty two apparently For the anniversary of the bbc or something and There are going to be three specials after the upcoming eight episodes season which I'm not sure in previous doctor who news the upcoming season is going to be one long story arc and so that's interesting. I kind of see that as a call and baker callback. It'll be interesting to have a long year. Are pardon me a year long arc at and i suppose gentlemen ladies all gala fran's of whatever regeneration you may be start your engines because who's going to be the next doctor. I was going to say. Does that does that mean now. Because i have heard that that might be the end of doctor who well there are some corners of the internet. Say that dr who ended a long time But i don't. I don't think that that's an even when dr who ends doctor who regenerates doctor who comes back though the wilderness years between Sylvester mccoy and Christopher alston there the drought but there was still lush with doctor who stories whether it be novels The big finish storylines. Even the the paul mcgann movie. So let me ask you this in your opinion. Do you think we're going to get a pause on the tv. Show at least for now or do you think they'll just pick right back up the following season the new doctor. I think it's going to depend on the best news out of this. Is that Criminal is Stepping down I think that it has been an issue with the writing i. I've always wanted a lady doctor i want. I want to look at the doctor the same way that chicks look at David tennant i liked lady. Doctors i want helena bottom carter to be doctor who like. That's what i that would be my jam of.

Who person i think i've seen one or two episodes in my entire lifetime Just wasn't just wasn't available to me or for me But i have heard that especially this season that that the what i think what everybody thought was going to be the big problem. Ooh woman doctor was not actually the problem. The problem was with the writing. I've heard that many many times over the last year or two or three or whatever it was so yeah well my my problem with it..

"Scandal and sportsnight will play with cards sometimes because he's you know he's loves poker and n they'll do this that little bit of acting with a piece of property it kind of adds character to it. I think mccoy does that Here's a physical comedian. Yes he is. He doesn't have that background. That stage background does. But you know what i saw him. He was in dallas played. He was sharing the stage with karen. Gillan they were doing a panel together and she and he talked. He grabbed the couple spoons and start playing for because she had not known about that That's funny. I don't i don't know if i would have loved to have seen that. By the way at this point. I asked to doctors right. This one in the previous. They're they're trying to do things that i don't i don't know if it's necessarily smart You know colin baker was a very unlikable doctor and now then Sylvester mccoy is a manipulative doctor. Right like you've talked about that. Yeah but not yet. I mean he's doesn't really start becoming that until the next season season twenty five. And i don't i don't know if that was i don't know if i enjoy that trait of the doctor. I don't know if i liked those stories This was a very good story. But i'm just as you mentioned it made me think of it and you you also. I don't know if it's because i know this i'm feeling it or maybe i'm feeling it because it shows but it feels like the show is starting to show its age a little bit on you know when i've seen these a couple of times this episodes of really fun episode. But you just see a little bit that what is a very eighty eight hundred ish episode interns know we start seeing how. The budget cuts are affecting the show in terms of production quality There is a bit of eighties. Cheesiness to special effects aren't as good as say on star trek the next generation at this point because they don't have the budget for it.

"Sharon taylor played stellar mother. The young girl with a the ringlets in the very cute dimples and just looking very much like a outerspace shirley temple guess. She played steelers mother. She was in a previous story from the time. Bigger era where she played pat in the stones of blood stellar us stellar from like american pie. No no stellar. Okay sorry l. L. a. r. as in leading to the star. Okay not stiffer. Small stellar run. Mom exactly slightly marinda boardman played by the way stellar. Obviously she doesn't have any other credits. So just mentioned those as guest cast this week trivia. There's a lot of trivia in this one holly. Did you happen to note any trivia. Before before i get into my little ramble. A little trivia tidbits they didn't get any trivia. The santa okay just curious just curious so for anybody wondering about that really weird cliffhanger at the end of episode one where sylvester mccoy goes over the side of a railing to scale down. You know like to go down to the lower level in the ice caverns and there's no ladder there anything. So what he does. He kinda puts his umbrella hooks it on to the railing and then start sliding down and then hangs there a literal cliffhanger for the episode. And you're for anybody wondering why that happened why he was doing this because obviously it does. Obviously if you've never you know just watching the story for the first time like jesse. You probably very confused by that. I'm guessing so the reason that he lowered himself on his umbrella for no apparent reason obviously got a lot of criticism over the years and originally as it was scripted. The doctor actually did have a reason for doing this. According to script editor at the time andrew cardinal the passage leading to the cliff was supposed to be a dead end so the only way that the doctor basically had no other option but scaled down the cliff face but because the way it was shot you know that reason wasn't clear so it's basically a on the part of director. Chris chris clough not making that storytelling aspect or that important plot point clear because otherwise as as noted. It's very confusing cliffhanger. And this is you know..

"But but to. Semester McCoy's credit, you know he gives it his all. He's right in there Trying to you know obviously given the limitations that production he's still giving. You know one hundred ten percent. If that's possible, even though you can mathematically not give any more than one hundred percent, but he he's he's quite the showman and you know and I think he really relish the idea that you know getting play finally playoff of major batty You know he had played off. A little bit in Rim remembrance of the DALEKS. But here you know it's the master. The doctor's arch enemy. Moriarty to his Sherlock Holmes and. So the to see those two face off I thought Doctor, who was going to give a off at this point with just so little left in the tank. Needed the master they needed the master, and so so I think rescheduling this story as the finale was the way to go. of the four that were presented and for season twenty six. And you just you know I. I really like it. you know the clash and the Cheetah as it's breaking up and you know that that great emoting from Sylvester McCoy when he does big line of like you know if we we fight like animals than we die like. He's throwing up his hands off the ethically and it's. It's such a great moment and. You know with the master. Scrambling at this point, he stuck on this planet He's turning into a Cheetah person gradually, although he's just relying on his strength of will to fight off the influence, and he's just barely hanging on and then, but doctor shows up, and the master just is like relying on him like okay. You're my ticket out of here. and. Tries to get him to to. The to work together and it's only when obviously when when a succumbs to the Cheetah. Planets influences that They're able to escape, but it just it just shows you know of. It? You know it's almost like the. I don't quite know how the master knew that. The doctor was going to be imperative. At this particular moment. It does seem like a little bit of convenience. Of for the story, but you know you gotta get these together? Somehow, so you Kinda have to just hand way have a symbiotic relationship they kind of. Said they knew where the other one's GonNa beat, but. Sorry, just trying to give a little. or or Maybe that he the Mastro's causing these disappearances figured well. Hey, the doctor will show up in investing. Shakes there because he knew he knew where some right that's. That's certainly possible. So yeah, just you know it. Just it It did work and but I I really enjoyed seeing semester. McCoy playoff Anthony Ainley getting to see him Anthony Ainley as the master. One last time it was a lot. So. All right anything else about the doctor, the master from anybody. All right. Let's move on topic number two. Stuck about ace and Kara. And Zana. I WanNa talk with started off Jesse, but feel free to talk about said subtexts that you are going talking about earlier. Because because I find that very interesting that Rona Munro kind of wanted to Bring that out in the series so. So, just start with you. What's your thoughts on on? This kind of relationship that ace this bond that as feels with Kara. Converted the person. I I liked it a lot there there is. and. It's hard for me. To. As a sixty year old, straight white guy to. Say this you know I don't WanNa seem indelicate but I do think there is a little bit of of of an affection in subtexts between an I thought that was interesting and played very well especially for eighty nine. You know they're not going to go too far. There, so I like seeing. I liked it. I liked A. Was Not As hey, let me bring hand-grenades. She was less Jane from firefly this time. I've seen her. She's been a little more like you know. Don't you think we should have brought hand-grenades? Yeah, she's not throwing nitro nine. She's not rocking the supercharged aluminum bat to beat up dialects time. and Zan what I wanted to mention is when you're talking about that. Her going back to the old neighborhood and I and I pulled this up, but it it it brought back and talk about pop culture. Right Billy Joel seen from Italian restaurant where he says then the king and Queen go back to the green, but you can never go back there again, right? And I you mentioning that? Maybe that line and I think that's a really That's that was yes in the writing, but also in the way sophie played that. was really well done of I. Guess the important thing Charles is. The episode made me want to see more of Ace. When the last time around with that was like. Yeah, the last one was like Oh, she was fine. You know, but this one I liked her. I liked her performance like the interactions and I said okay. This is interesting. I'd like to see more of this character. Um what else this actress did whether I'm pretty sure I can make that happen I know you can. so as Ian how `bout you. Obviously. You're a big Fan. So you had to love Sophie aldred getting the spotlight here in this story and I did, and and what did you make of of her going back to Perryville and also? That that that that bond that she develops in the story with Kara. I thought that it was I thought it was interesting. Bond because I sort of when we see Kara after she has been relieved of her wear, cat curse, and we see her as a human again. I sort of expected it to be someone that ace new from the Old Town and she wasn't. She was just somebody who. When she came hunting for her in that playground they sort of. Developed developed a connection right so. I thought that was I thought that was interesting that it wasn't..

Jesse Jackson is here and so is my ghost would co host with the most Zan sprouse and. All's good with Charles because I'm GONNA have McKay getting to talk to a doctor who to my favorite people in the known universe so zan welcome back to next off everywhere. Thanks for having the Charles. You're always welcome and Jessie. How are you today? I am good I am loving Zan Science Theater? T shirts rides like that. I'm now trying to go if we can do one degree of doctor who and twin peaks so that that the next time we have Zan, we could have some kind of we do a doctor who episode that has a characters or actors who share with twin peaks. They do not but not. You've tried. I've looked okay I did however have a really really tenuous reference to twin peaks for this episode. That when we were in the Self Defense Doj. Oh, I was really looking for a Bushnell mullins boxing poster. That would be good so Yeah, so everybody, welcome and today here at episode eighty nine. We're talking survival. And this is a notable episode. Because Hey, it's the last ever story from the original era that Lorraine from nine, hundred, sixty, three to nine, hundred, eighty, nine, and really looking forward to talking about this with you guys because you know Jesse I know that we've been through periodic. You know you know I, Dr. second doctor doctor fourth doctor as we're kind of in our hiatus from new episodes. But BUT ZAN was. I was able to coerce they and back into the podcast. So hard xanax. Twist your arm because you know deception, the story doesn't autonomy so that kind of rules that out, but it does have ace, and all kinds of as yep, exactly so definitely looking forward to that cause so if we all dread. And, the seventh doctor, one of my favorite doctor, who are doctor, companion, pairings and I. Think this is A. This is a a fun little showcase for Sophie. particularly in this in this last story, and you get to see more of her relationship. Friendship with the the seventh doctor. In this last story, so so. Go ahead and step in Charles and I'm probably stealing some of your trivia, but go for I was like wow, 'cause Charles told me this is the final classic era right and so Mike. Wow, they picked a really good one, but then when you've run down the rabbit hole. This wasn't the last one they film. They actually switch things around a little bit because they wanted a strong you know. It, not that it was the last necessary doctor who they suspected right, but they wanted to in the season. Strong I I really liked this episode I thought it was really well done. Yeah, originally, since I was going to bring that up in the Trivia section, but Since you brought it up. They were originally going to air ghost light. That was the last that was the last one produced. And Which? Is very twin peaks ish in a way. I, actually prefer goes late to this episode, right? It's really. Thin. It is, it does have a kind of a creepy twin peaks ish vibe a little bit right? There's there's somebody in one of those knobs in one of those dresser drawers i. Ask. I love it so I get to toxin doctor who gets talk? Some twin peaks happy. So. This one was written by Roy, number and row. One of the very few female writers on Classic Era, but she's the only writer that actually returned in the modern era to write the story, the eaters of light from the Peter Cappelli era which we've talked about here on the podcast. Directed by Alan. Wearing and this was the fourth serial of season twenty six in nineteen, eighty nine. The Charles, can you remind me? Maybe some of our other listeners who might be a little bit like me and not the world biggest Paul, mcgann fan right. What does kill the seventh doctor? Well technically. It's. The eighth doctor's companion for the episode Grace Dr Grace Holloway because. She's has to perform emergency surgery after he gets shot multiple times. And Steve. And she's not familiar with his alien. Physiology. Easier for me to say right. For the face Oh okay, I thought it was for the. Go physiology then our. That's easier easier. Pronounce if nothing else but. I looked that up after I saw Tom Baker. Say All right cool all right. Let's go with this then that works for me. Because I, just remember him being on the slab. and. But I just couldn't remember how he got there. There was a big Ruckus I. Know we're digressing but Hey sans in the house. That's what we're GONNA do. I don't think we're this is really digressing, said just mentioned that this last one, but this is the. Really one of the, One of the two times. We leave a doctor and don't get a regeneration. But now. McCoy and Paul mcgann that we don't see their regeneration so well. We do it, we actually do. Not In their respective fear. No, you're right. You're absolutely right about that, so yeah, even this semester McCoy's last full story as the seventh doctor. He doesn't regenerate like the mentioned until the TV movie. and. But Yeah just because you know grace, you know. It just wasn't familiar, and she kind of loses her way while of running if tube through him and. He dies on the operating table. Whoops. Don't talk on that. You know what it might be attached to. So in their heart, there's two hearts and you don't know what you're looking at. So that's it. Get out so this one. The Story of course starring Sylvester McCoy as the seventh doctor. And Sophie aldred as Dorothy Ace McShane. In. We get the return of Anthony Ainley in his final doctor. Who Appearance as the third master? And then we also get Lisa. Bauer men as Kara in the story. She's notable because. She has even though she appeared in this story. She has much more Dr. who fame! For big finish audios because she plays. Bernice Benny Summerfield the. The seventh doctor's companion that kind of follows a in the doctor who novels from back in the day and then big finish kind of made that even more cannon. By Adding her to their audio range, and she's had done a lot of. Big Finish Audios and very co actress. She's also appeared in the Dr. Who Dreamland intimates special starring David Tennant as a character name. Seru, Valich and she played a character named Burt Beth Cornell in a six. Doctor Colin Baker story for big finish whispers of terror. Was Kind Kinda Cool Julian Holloway Plays Sergeant Paterson. The very interesting fitness instructor. He played the dual characters of ALMAC and Admiral Killian in the Animated Series Star Wars the clone wars. And, he was also in Disney's Christmas Carol from two thousand nine. The Jim Carey version. And he was also on an episode of Beverly Beverly Hills Nine Oh, two one. Oh, which I thought was just really really odd, and I had to mention it. Everybody's GonNa Make Ranch Charles. That's right is kind of random though. It is very exactly we'll play. Mitch and he played the genie in a big finish audio for the fifth doctor Peter Davison Destroy Delights. Then another character named man Jot in another big finish audio, call the chaos pool and We also had Second Talla Romney. Sri La, Vida, and Adele Silva as squeaks just mentioned those. No need really mentioned the expendable, because they're like you know we really get to know them and. They ended up getting basically cheap people food so. Tough break guys. The only other trivia that I had I wanted to mention. Was that apparently? Sophie aldred was going to continue as as into the proposed see. Seven that never happened because, but her contract was going to was set to expire in that halfway through that season that never happened so as a result of character was going to be written now in an ice warrior story called Ice Time by Marc Platt, and according to interviews with production team, the new companion that was going to replace her would have been a female safecracker that the doctor would have taken under his wing in with her gangster father as a recurring character on the show. that's kind of an interesting. What if? Now plus story was eventually adapted as big finish law story audio adventure, call thin ice in a kind of what they did. Is They took? Four SCR-. You know the four story ideas that they had for that never happened that scene twenty seven that never happened and it kinda recorded in for big finish with. Semester McCoy Sophie aldred and an actress playing Raine. Creevey that that safecracker character so, but that was pretty cool. That is pretty cool. I Yeah I as much as I loved Sarah Jane I would've loved to have also seen an ace adventures show. Or Ason company I think a lot of us would want that. Yeah especially now that Russell t davies. has kind of sort of established that. Ace, now, as an adult runs, this charitable organization called a charitable earth..

If you use, our listener should be very interested. Then he shares the story of One. How he got towed that he had to was going to come up with a new green lantern and he was going to write what happened how Jordan back when we gave the emerald twilight. Rather than the Torius storyline. And then he also shares the story years later at a convention Dinnie in him, spitting time Danny telling him what he thought of that.

One of the editors notes refer another issues went away, and now they're back, but they're US referring trade paperbacks. For the issued cell, you know. Yeah just old school I guess. Yet. I like I like them. They were so critical that before the Internet. So that's really kind of you know. That's understandable, but it's like still. Further collectors really nice have the be. That more direct reference, it makes like part a big part of the continuity. I guess that's what I'm or thrown.

You're not gonNA happen because he doesn't know. That's great. Mystery to them as it is us, that's very. I like that it's just this is what happens in. What's next Sir announcing the other? Yep exactly well after that part. They let me get into this. Sequence at a London Bar, a peacemaker, following up his leads and. That's a pretty brutal fight that we get into here but I want ask.

"To everyone now that we're going to also use the northern Europe's name for new year's yes so we are back here with Sylvester McCoy before the break so that so we were talking about the difference between an American audience in an English audience and I was going to it's so interesting to me that you said that because when Melissa performed Wallace the show was called that woman it is there were so many times you have so many laughs and when we did it in the states and then we can when we came over to Scotland was just flat yes the issue the it people save that British actors in a theater actress a really great if that be true I think the reason is the audience a really bad because you have to work really hard as a laxative it's like getting blood I over the stone I mean the end of the fall the size you go in England the the last response to get the very I am in the I've been in shows that were comedy shows on the but tried out in south London nobody laughed when we got to Manchester they were falling about laughing I'm surprised about Scotland but then the indefensible is not Scotland as such is an international festival and the audience tend to be known the Scottish but to come from all over the place and maybe England as well yeah exactly and actually what I was told by someone who's our Scottish tradition he said to me now I want you to go into the audience and start laughing because if you start laughing it gives the audience permission to be I was laughing yeah so yes they also there's a shyness as well amongst the audiences in Britain the where is an American a distant bang and you're away was very much the American thing you know is she was the right yeah things like so one of our breaks we were talking about your travel and it wanted you to share the story that you shared with me about your amazing travel have you done hello that yes last year I was at the festival is likely yeah hi there and we should if there is a with but kind of in a pickle joke when it's finished I jumped on a train from admit to London hello I had a really ready if pre packed suitcase and I set off from London to Paris Paris to Moscow branched off to Saint Petersburg I went to the ballet and so the the dying swan hi this is sleeping with the dice on this service call here the famously of Tchaikovsky's yeah it all anyway you've been traveling a lot I know I know but the the change the end because you know this one usually dies at the end of it but they have the crows died the end of it did give a happy ending which I thought was appalling anyway I went back to Moscow then like on the trans Siberian express that went across Russia and all the way across I was listening to the blogs to my sons and my agent I'm not very up on the road all right media but my agent had been putting them up on the social media when I go to a certain station Blanco send a Katerina bug I'm I was met by Dominic you know from the from the doctor who a Russian topic and I kept an eye I was amazed and then I realize it's Siberia where should you send Dallek's the enemy of doctor who but to Siberia so I carried on to Mongolia and then through Mongolia into China I went to Beijing and had peaking doc in Beijing they haven't changed the name okay not raising and then I went on to Hanoi and then went to Greek to my granddaughter who arrived in Bangkok week before my first grandchild and the reason why I did it was a you know common footprints thing and also a bucket list thing so what did you get out of that experience let's if I played psychologist right now how did in Richard live for did you get out of it well I got I was at that time the Russians really lovely people friendly and especially Siberian areas where you meet them thank you for coming the so please do came this way touching the humor they will you know they they obviously don't get a lot of them you have people coming right hill I mean my Moscow's great and them beautiful city as is the simplest way but for me wanting to do well at the live I like a challenge really hello sign out some uncomfortable times you know physically uncomfortable times and when I got through it I was really cool yes I did it did not come to the I think that's my M. my bag really I set all funding impossible things trying to achieve the Marth somehow is something impossible comes my way I think I'm not gonna run away from this I'm gonna see if I can make my way I think it's a great city message to share with our audience too that there's two ways usually life happens I think it either comes to like you said and then you take the challenge any work outside your comfort zone not so much so that your riddled with anxiety but enough to know I know I can do this I can move forward I can take this chance it could be exciting an uncomfortable at the same time and also this sense of you know following your got like this is just too you wore it seems like to me at least that's been the story of your career that you just follow your gut it has yes hi Matt my problem is I always say yes to everything and try and work out how to get out of it often yeah actually you know what I was I read that somewhere but you and you know what I can have that same experience I've taken on jobs where people have said to me well you know doctor G. are you you know how did you become an expert in schizophrenic and take a while I got a job yes I needed to pay my mortgage thank goodness you didn't see that someone enough to to become a brain surgeon right yeah yes I'll do that well that's it yeah exactly that's a great point because I sort of knew I could do it yeah but I was willing to take that kind of chance I know I have here a couple of quotes of yours so I'm going to surprise you with so I was able to find them actually one of them was if anyone asks me to do a job I say yes I said yes to everything so that is kind of the story of your life is not yeah what about what other lessons can you share with us as I look for your quote with a horrific and the lessons of life although I like this one when I was in seminary they said I should be an actor but at the same time I wanted to be a priest because I wanted to be important in people's lives I have the quiet ambition to be something noted and notable then the part of doctor who arrived in some way I think science fiction as a replacement for religion for some people yes no I I I I believe that people said to me why is Dr so successful and I said well is the say there are seven stories under the sun and mankind's genius is to retell them and wonderful and brilliant ways I one of them is about someone coming from my side the world taking on human form and Daschle against the evil eye you know religions of started on it zero and that's why I think doctor who's like that he came from the planet Gallifrey he comes down to earth he takes on the human form and he tries to do good and help the human race and people of a tractor to that particular story and they're very trucks anything to people that are willing to take on that mission yes yeah it becomes kind of exciting and interesting for the year and I believe becoming an actor a lot of times is you know to go sort of full circle a little bit sore has replaced for a lot of people what religion had done for them at one point yes it's a cathartic experience to bring people into the theater they have an emotional experience they relate to the actors of what they're going through and they can kind of experience our lives as they go through that process with the actor yes so once I was walking down the street in this very handsome the elderly woman stoppage said you're an actor yes she said I want to thank you she said because what do you do you act as is you take his oath of ourselves for two and a half hours and with me real quick you take is to another place and yet you know you just transporters and she said thank you thank you I never thought of it in that way I'm inside too I didn't realize I has a again because of the I was just trying to remember my line here yeah but in the face outside of my remember my lines and not bump into the furniture writes a doctor who's about bumping into the aliens ability is not about but in the end it is otherwise you got no story so again let me ask you this what what's happening in the future with you where we're how should we follow you well I've just finished a film I supposed to do some a D. R. in in in Hollywood but that's been canceled I have not got to back in England I'm in a film called moves mmhm owners the owners with the Maisie Williams who's one of the leads from game of thrones okay and for those that much older they'll remember have reached a touching him who was in press said breaking through films like him touch of love and the girl green eyes and doctor Zhivago and things like that so she's a hero as I'm does so I'm I've just done and that's coming out next year I hope I will back to Scotland I'm going to claim code weather was a terrible massacre with a Campbell's massacre the McDonald's is a dot can dock and do the place and I'm going there in January to believe that filming did it because I think it must be seen exciting it sounds exciting sounds fun here we have a caller calling in so I want to be able to take them in here with they have to say indeed so I'm gonna welcome them to the show this is doctor G. were here what Sylvester McCoy actually the caller just hung up so we're going to do with a little bit later so this dark and dreary place it into the conscious yes I don't know if you notices and an infamous story in the history of Britain I am no I'm not I'm not familiar with that well when a bunny prince Charlie and the who was defeated and the air is the George the third all allow me the Israeli Massad it's a German king anyway he decreed that all Scott's had to write all Scottish tribes tribes them you know clans is it where the heads had to write allegiance to that king and send it to address and if he didn't do by certain time that terrible things might happen well anyway the England coach is weight control from the west coast of Scotland and was aware of in the east he he had send to in these letters but it never got there so the Duke of Argyll who is very much a king July the German kings man he sent out his troops to visit these people is McDonald's of Blanco and of course the Highlanders the.

"Mail dot com we're here with Sylvester McCoy we're talking about his experience on doctor who before we get back to what I want to highlight something that so Lester said in the last segment that for a lot of people out there who are thinking of becoming an actor or having a vocation in the entertainment industry if you feel very connected to it if you feel like that's your calling that is probably something you should do and you know in some ways the money and how it all works out and how it all plays out we'll figure itself out by going after that calling is very important especially for someone like myself who sees a lot of people in therapy I find that when people pursue something that actually is their passion makes them happy they tend to have less depression and a better life that's my thoughts on it your thought so that's because you were telling me at the break the impact that doctor who had around the world yes it was something I didn't realize and when I started traveling the world and going to meet fans all over the world of them have been to Brazil a mystery aliens yeah everywhere really all of America common themes were people coming up to me and telling me how it affected their lives how you save them through one traumatic times when they were young heroes were getting bullied at school and the area is the source of the doctor who and somehow the inspiration of this little this little alien who comes to an end baffles up and by himself and get makes his way through to help the youth of the world and the universe them that his five them but also it was it was this wonderful connection they would say all I love doctor I wash it was my man and when this saying that you can see them in front of the telly cozied up you know whenever it came on and that has a great meaning in and bonding between them and the family bonding and it's all to do with the TV program and I I didn't know this I just you know to try to learn the lines that right into the bone bump yes my job was with bump into them yes yes I had to bump into them to grade point to bring up that a lot of people experience I think this is was the the sort of the power of doctor who here is that you have someone who maybe feels ostracized and is not part of quote the norm is and how they're able to make their way in the world and like you said bump into monsters and deal with them is Michael logically that so much of the process that so many people go through that experience I could see the intense connection why people would connect with you and also upon the family together indeed that was the wonderful thing and was a great loss when they talk about now I know you've worked with a lot of other you mentioned launch a levy a yes you see what stage of irony blank them out of my mind and the workers some other very famous people I'm wondering if there any stories or anecdotes you want to share with our audience well yes I suppose I am that I had the latest great theatrical knight of the satyr is eleven in McAllen knives from axle and I'm in the hall that you know he was yes I the cast of the yes and that working with him was a pain in the neck the reason for that is that we work together and we toured the world doing king Leah this is an English Scottish thing no no no come through in a year the minute that was at the use of pen the night because we went for a year and a half had a was in kingly a we toured the world and we filmed it and then I what with them for three years on the whole bit he's over six feet tall and I'm small so for the all those years I my neck I had to keep looking upon him and he gave me a pain in the neck a little I mean it wasn't a pain in the neck to work with in the the figures of sense but no he was a pain in the neck as far as being in the literal sense in the literal sense what was sort of that emotional or psychological experience working with him he's got great Jerry all city off the stage I mean he's really generous he he's a brave because he came out you know when it was quite difficult to do so and he and he he's not to do a one man show around Britain all the money goes to save his you know that see see see yeah he did something which really was wonderful which affects LA we were to we came in to LA to do kingly I played the fool to easily at and we all went on a trip to Korea town where there was a school there and the teacher that taught his class through Shakespeare so he that was part of racing and Ian secretly financed the loss of it no one knows this of distilled this and everybody knows it not knows his terrible heat eight before it so he was incredibly generous in that kind of way it's funny you say that because I remember many years ago he did a one man show in LA and was at the Geffen which is now the Geffen theater the west with the enter key and there was a part of his show that he asked people to come on stage and I have the experience of the front of those people who came of age in the yes I do remember was very tall because I'm also yeah and you know they're in the neck when you go around yeah exactly surely but I room I don't remember exactly what he had me do but whatever it was I remember thinking he's helping me out so much in this process is like taking care of me while I'm doing this yeah and I think that's a a corner market being good actor is that and it's great to hear that it also translated into his personal life it can be a bit of a devil on the stage though in what respect well I yeah when you in King Lear I came up with this gag in Shakespeare in the play the Sheik's who's written about an exit for the fool takes an agan breaks in half and to indicate to the king Leo that he's cut his kingdom and haven't had a ridiculous that he's right well there was a bit where Ian sat down so I can love the idea that I'd put a rubber AG underneath him as he sat down and so when they came to the ag gag I pick up my little book and laid in a you know which hero and this would have a non news director he thought a great gag and write it was Shakespeare's it was Sylvester McCoy gag he had laid an egg you know he's please kingdom to and the good of a disaster so he might even have been quite like that too much but you have to do is travel loved it so we we coming to New York and had that he was going to be nervous because the last time it was the other New York critics have been too kind to him which is ridiculous because he he had been brilliant this ridge of the fat anyway he was a bit tense what's the one I I he got up and the egg and disappeared and I said I'm looking everywhere see I think we lose a come on this all these is this what you're looking for and then he the surge up into the air and I was a bit discombobulated so it balanced and then you probably back on stage I understand and I caught it and then I said to move canonical the floor is made of rubber I need him often said afterwards I'll never do that again yes I I I think that's improvise I don't think Shakespeare knew it rubber what this knoll I'm sure he didn't but have also provides I improvise the that's a very brave choice that you made so I think it's great but I was just I didn't want the audience to think that the egg was rubber so the something under the robbers it had to be the floor exactly what about your experience in the hobby well I was what was one of our experience really they then they kind of the journey to the hobbits started twelve years alia when I was up for Bilbo Baggins in the lord of the rings and you know as a stay with full down of our many actors they saw on screen tested in the cap tested the advocate for the wages of no you still in the picture meaning the film but actually the running the running so and it went right down to the last two and I didn't know who the other one was but it kind of it the great the in home I'm not remember being disappointed but at the same time flattered to have been thought I was in his at his level right because if he had to ask her to much money I would have been Bilbo Baggins so that maybe twelve years later The Hobbit comes along and I screen test forum I don't I think asks the bird island I when I went to meet them Peter Jackson he said to me so well add this is a big of pop and you know so that was what was it a bigger part I think so people say it was you know I'm an actor I wonder the biggest part of course is and you know and and in some ways the most money is always nice to yes the money was quite nice our audience can see that you're smiling right now what what about your experience in the states I have have you done much you know in in cedar here I know you're here now on a visit I was just curious if you had any recent projects and want to share with our audience for any reason well I don't think you're doing yeah I mean I go like I did I did King Lear we toured we did New York men Minneapolis because he say to they would we paid out a we played them where else do we do I thought was the fourth one by any anyway that's what I love it is playing to an American audience I also did a play at BAM a years before which was colder owns life is a dream which is the kind of the Spanish omelet and then it again I was the fool you so much you're getting tight yes can you start figuring out part of new accounts see why this

"Show I just like the old days we used to give out your fax number I know he is half the show is called by now but I just give the contact information but I'm very excited to have Sylvester McCoy on he's an actor juggler and most importantly a ferret wrangler he's the seventh doctor in the doctor who TV series ad Radagast the gas the butter island in the hobbit movie so I want to welcome you to the show thank you delighted to be here it's so you told me before we started the show that in your up or in northern Europe there's something we need to know about new year's eve yes well in in Scotland because hold Monday imagine if you there on that but you know there are many and Sweden and various other call it the call is so vast okay so happy Sylvester PS two's have his Avesta to everyone out there from Sylvester you know what I'm gonna do that from now on yes you must and the ACA since Sylvester day I think that's the reason why it would sort of like Boxing Day Americans don't know about boxing day so you know they're gonna know about Boxing Day two and Celeste today yeah that's right Boxing Day little box each other really what exactly is the meaning of boxing thirty one now well yeah this is a bit vague but I believe it's when you opened the boxes with your presence in that's what I thought two years ago of fellow so you celebrated Christmas and didn't demean yourself to go we opened presents and so he had drunk well yeah that's what I thought too in the booklet to sleep yes and then you take the boxes and you bring it back to the store I suppose soon of the area of your life it has you know the children play with the boxes and throw away the toys it's true for their parents to go with it so I wanted to ask you this question you know as a psychologist I get a lot of people writing me and then they ask me questions like especially here in Hollywood I want to become an actor I want to have a long career in the entertainment industry I'm wondering what advice you could give me so as someone who's had a very long and great career in the industry why don't we start with that what advice would you give to someone who was starting a career and wanting to maintain it okay well you don't want to make money okay he is only a small proportion of actors actually make a very very very decent living but date so I'm you know it's like if you want to become a priest it's a calling Hey is not something you can just do you have to commit yourself a hundred percent that's interesting you said about being a priest because I know that that was something you had started to want to pursue in the early part of your life yes no I went to seminary from the age of eleven till I was seventeen training to the pope and I had them back as above my station but that that then I decided not to do it but very good training for acting you know the feeling of being is become a priest and you know then they move over to becoming an actor and also stated grew out of the church right well a lot of weight connector is all about theater it is that's what attracted me in the highlands of Scotland where I live there wasn't much stay tuned I remember thinking wow look at that cost him he's got up there and everybody sitting here listening to him and I want to do that right I want to perform he is so I'm sorry you never maintenance pope but well yeah there was a reason you see because after I decided I became so holy a high speeds me from praying and I decided I was going to leave and become a monk instead so I left the seminary I need went home and then they look Alexis arrive saying which children farms then this is big problem your year to young so you count become among control your eighteen so I have to go to school and the local schools do Newton grammar school X. six cool and so after a short time I decided to give up wearing a skirt and started chasing it to this day and that was the end of my dream well I'm I'm you know here in Hollywood you can actually do both you can wear a skirt and you can chase a skirt new all that is good yes but that was a way back in the sixties right into it and you could win in Scotland to Scott but was called killed yes and having been in Scotland I did see many of those and I always thought it could be quite a draft well yes yes there is we draft to any other out running across the mountains can you send you said something interesting Sylvester for me at least you said there was a connection between being a priest in being a performer being an editor I wonder if you can elaborate on that a little bit well it say it and I think acting is you're you're you're right you're born with it and you can't learn it that's one thing well you can learn all the skills the craft the craft but that you you you you know you you you are in the sense bone as a storyteller and when I say a slight increases some is the notice of calling his so you have to give up everything for it zero do you think that you know has personally in the theater when you're performing on stage in a lot of ways that is like the sense of giving in the sense of a sharing yourself with the audience was which is really very much of what a priest would do yes indeed yes yeah it is very much in that we connected in them he's opening yourself up and showing real emotions is also a place to hide if you're shy become an actor then you can do whatever you want to yeah yeah and I mean I what would launch live the a and he he was a shy man yeah I've heard that before actually tell me more about that experience I I'm sure my love my love my audience there was a forty and slipped your lovely audio you my lovely audience hopefully by the end of this interview all be doing a very bad Scottish accent but knows he is the experience of working with a live literally a hot on my arms okay no no no no we can say that all right let's get a livia can you tell us a little bit about what that experience was like well actually it wasn't a very pleasant experience working with Lancelot the am sad to say I was in the film Dracula with Franklin Gela once a levy and it was them John Badham directed it and I have that kind of a nice little part in it bot I arrived with a comedy MS a bag full of comedy skills and it turned out they didn't want that but when I first met Launcelot the I wouldn't do in the west of England in Carmel for seventeen weeks in the winter it was due in three can drab I'm sorry I missed because we we we don't give me the sun and so I walked into the bar one of the very first night and everyone was sitting around Donald Pleasance in front and Jennifer and I I said I don't know I could drink and you know when I was a bit shy but no one responded as I said I to anyone want to drink I missed calls but no might know Oscar again the turnaround is of me do sit down so vast and stop showing off and that was the beginning of our relationship and how and then you can obviously continued on that well yeah there was a scene we had to do I am trying Dracula had sob Lucy's neck and find Hellsing was called upon to come along to do something about it and with the state and I was a resident lunatic in the house select type cast yes I know that and so I was the resident lunatic and so I was carrying the garlic how we came along this is the connecting shop between one scene in the other it was the entrance of van Helsing and myself and that was all they wanted so the camera is facing the door we came along lights action everything we've already when it actually came out lots a love the sump to me the saw the I didn't go through the door but what hit the wall and he walked in through the door all by himself he was going to share the screen with me and and and being sort of the legend that he was a kind have to let him well yeah but if you see the film Nick Seton I to focus out the window scraping golly code and up and down the window and and I from Britain who's a great long delivery if I want it met me said you know you're the fuzz fuzz oversee up upstage longs to live the and you won't even in focus I'm proud to say that okay so that will go down as as one of your legends he hates it out you had others and one of the things I wanted to get to quickly was you are the seventh doctor who and that was it I'm sure quite an interesting experience because as I told people that your coming on people were very excited to hear about your experience as being the seventh doctor who and also what it was like to inherit that role from other people good yes what when I got it I got it out of the news because in those days there was no recordings of his initial ones and I was working the status I hadn't seen it for years so I arrived not knowing too much about it but I'm not realizing that I had actually been given the hamlet of television every yeah and you have it as of the music and I didn't realize this and I didn't realize how much pressure that would be which was a great thing my ignorance was bliss in that way so I just ended it on a read and interpreted it my own way without any baggage of knowledge of the past and later on the producers of the twenty first century doctors have said to me that my doctor changed the journey it became Dhaka and more mysterious and the the question mark came back because the the who in who came back you remember grade point and I wanted to elaborate that with my own answers from a psychological point of view that you know as a psychologist a lot of times I'll get people wanting to tell me about a patient and also will don't tell me about that pace and I want to go into that experience with a fresh mind and get a sense of who they really are I don't want someone to color my experience with their experience and I think that's a very powerful thing to be able to do is it's a Brave on your part but it's also a very powerful experience because then you bring a freshness to the experience that people didn't expect yes no I I that's I didn't realize and I know I already know I'm a later and then people informed me that the US what had happened we're gonna take a quick break so that's when we get back we're gonna talk more about doctor who if I am doctor G. the I've heard talk to not doctor who doctor doctor doctor doctor and we'll be back right after the commercials thank Hey Los Angeles the holidays are here you.
