Elisabeth Sladen presents an exciting collection of interviews and behind-the-scenes features from the hit BBC One series starring David Tennant.
About the Author
Born in Liverpool, Elisabeth Sladen trained at drama school before joining the Liverpool Playhouse, first as an assistant stage manager and then as an actor. Weekly touring rep, radio and television followed, with early roles in Coronation Street, Z-Cars, Doomwatch and Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, and she worked for two seasons with Alan Ayckbourn's company in Scarborough.
She joined Doctor Who in 1973, playing the independently-minded journalist Sarah Jane Smith, and quickly became one of the series' most popular companions. On leaving the programme in 1977, Elisabeth made a return to theatre before appearing in the sitcom Take My Wife and the BBC classic serials Gulliver in Lilliput and Alice in Wonderland; she also presented the children's series Stepping Stones.
She reprised the role of Sarah Jane a number of times, on television in K9 and Company and The Five Doctors, and on BBC Radio in The Paradise of Death and The Ghosts of N-Space. In 2006 Elisabeth returned as Sarah Jane for the BBC One Doctor Who episode 'School Reunion'. This led to the spin-off programme The Sarah Jane Adventures, of which five series were broadcast from 2007 to 2011.

The clips are spread over two discs, each an hour long, and form a sequential look at the latest era of the show, starting with the run up to the broadcasting of david tennant's first story. A lot of them are documentaries from bbc radio wales, and thus may not have been heard by listeners elsewhere before. these are pretty good, and do contain some good interviews. One thing you notice about these is that the new popularity and quality of the show means the interviewers can no longer make lame jokes about wobbly scenery and have instead to ask good questions! This is a relief.
Disc one closes with an amusing little item that completely fooled me as much as the lady being interviewed. And disc two closes with a nicely formatted piece about the spin off show the sarah jane adventures.
This isn't an essential purchase, but it's an enjoyable listen
This cd would be ok for someone who had missed DT,s interviews in the past but if you,re a fan then there is nothing new on here.

I’m a bonafide, crazy Doctor Who fan so I was thrilled to discover this audiobook. With two hours of interesting facts and interview, I simply loved it. Elisabeth Sladen has a true passion for the show. In the 1970′s she was a companion on the show and has made guest appearances in the last few years and of course her own show, the Sarah Jane Adventures.
As a fan who misses David Tennant as the Doctor, it was great to listen to him again and his experiences the show. I also liked finding out about all the behind-the-scenes, like that the Daleks are actually 5’4″ tall and have a person inside them controlling them! It was all really fascinating for the Doctor Who fan in me.
This was a great listen and I will listen to the other books in this series of “The Doctor at the BBC”.
