Not so. I loved the discussion about Doctor Who being or not being a children's show. Because I'm a die-hard-supernerd-Whovian, there wasn't a lot here that I didn't already know about, but it was of course a great listen because the three of them are so charming (as are you).

Good interview, how did you manage to land them?

I'm not surprised that you asked about the bow tie, but I was impressed how much you were able to get out of that line of questioning.

BBC America's folks are actually familiar with the show. Helps, I think, that they're in NY. They actually pitched it to me, which is very rare for TSOYA guests. The BBCA folks have always been nice, since the KZSC days.

I was delighted and not at all surprised that the conversation turned to things sartorial. It takes particular skill to use the root word "goof" twice in one hyphenate. Bravo!

I'd be very curious to see what the Neo-meats-Jack-Sparrow outfit looked like.

Great stuff. Also, one of the weirdest crossovers between shows I like that I could imagine.
Solid.

I'm super excited to listen to this soon. I just kinda got into the show recently, as friends were watching and I got roped in since I wanted to see the ones from out of town. This should be at just the right amount of Dr. Who understanding for me (I've watched the new one's premiere and am now going back through the revival's seasons).

re-listening on the podcast feed to get the tweed talk that the radio feed appears to have missed.

Listening to Steven Moffat, you can really hear the parts of his brain/manner where the Coupling character "Jeff" came from.

Listening to the interview, I was kind of curious how familiar with the show Jesse was, and was glad he addressed it. I really enjoyed the interview.

'There's a Christmas special on!' Daleks or Cybermen then? Dr Who never just used to be about the Daleks and the Cybers? It was about nothing. It was half an hour of mind numbing tedium but you watched the one about them being trapped in an arcarde game and the one about the slug thing and the one about Kroll just because once every three years the Daleks would pop up and EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!

Now it seems that the Dr can't go for a piss without finding a Dalek in there before him, Cyberman banging on the cubicle door telling it to hurry up.

They've opened the Pandora's Box of the parallel universe too. Killed all the Daleks at the end of last season? Ran out of stories for this? Bring 'em back FROM A PARALLEL UNIVERSE! Can't close it now. Of course they can fly all of a sudden, they always could (except when they couldn't see Tom Baker taunt one from a sky-light) and why can't they just not bypass Cardiff on their route to total domination?

Isn't the rest of the universe enough? Why can they defeat the galaxy hands down but come unstuck as soon as they hit CF1? C'mon, if they are going to come back time and time again let's at least meet them on their ground once in a while. Fairs fair. Why don't they mention Davros anymore? They couldn't fart without his permission once?

The BBC can't let him go now. They've built it up too much now. Plus they've shelled out on 1,000 cybermen outfits.

They're not free.

Sorry - meant to say - Good interview though. You knew more about Dr Who than they did I think1

Yeah .. the wardrobe/bowtie talk couldn't fit into the radio cut of the show. Sad but c'est la vie.
