The PodKast Talks To Doctor Who Voice Actor John Guilor!

March 18, 2014

Kasterborous Doctor Who podKastParental advisory: this podKast features some adult language. There is also discussion of potential spoilers, so please, don’t listen if you’re easily offended by either.

He voiced the First Doctor in The Day of the Doctor‘s famous multi-Doctor scene, and now John Guilor descends on the Kasterborous Doctor Who podKast!

Chatting to James McLean and Christian Cawley, John tells us all about his work voice the First Doctor in the reconstructed Planet of Giants DVD release, offers some impersonations of Tom Baker and Paul Darrow, and shares a few fun stories. We also get to hear how John came late to acting – at age 35!

This is a longer-than-usual podKast, so please take your time with it, there is much to enjoy…

(Please note that the version available here and through iTunes is longer than the edit distributed via Audioboo, due to that service’s time limitations.)

    What’s with all the background echos?

    • A minor technical issue which we think may have been at John’s end but wasn’t picked up until editing.

      And one that no one else has commented on. 🙂
