OUT OF THE TARDIS

Doctor Who Magazine’s TARDIS tin contains 120 tantalising, taxing and trivial questions. Each interviewee must answer a random selection…

Peter Purves

Peter Purves selects a question from the TARDIS tin.

“Who is this guy with Vicki? I just tuned in.” This is one of the many comments posted in response to 1965’s The Time Meddler as it is live-streamed to viewers on Twitch. Coincidently, this is the same day that DWM is catching up with TV legend Peter Purves – aka First Doctor companion Steven Taylor, aka ‘that guy with Vicki’.

“It’s extraordinary,” says Peter, marvelling at the level of interest Doctor Who continues to receive in 2018 as we show him Twitch. “When I was in the States last, a woman was trying to get her kids interested in the old classic Doctor Whos but they wouldn’t watch it because it was in black and white and they thought the television had broken.”

We’re meeting Peter at the Hilton Hotel in Croydon, where’s he’s fresh from recording a Doctor Who audio at a nearby studio. “I’ve been doing the readings from the original Doctor Who annuals. I worked through my lunch hour so I’d get finished in time for you.” Peter orders some food and lifts his coffee cup to toast DWM. “Cheers!”
