    5.0 of 5 stars from 4 votes.

    Ever wondered who was behind producing classic Doctor Who DVDs Whovians have on their shelves, well wonder no longer! Gerri and Eugenia have been able to interview some of the people who are responsible for us to revisit the classic stories, but also to complete some of the missing stories so that we can still watch them. Firstly, they interview Dan Hall (who at the time of the interview was) Commissioning Editor of Classic Doctor Who DVD production. Secondly, an interview with Austen Atkinson, founder of Planet 55 Studios, along with one of the animators responsible for animating missing episodes from The Reign of Terror, a 1st Doctor story as well as Moonbase, a 2nd Doctor story. It was through this painstaking animating process that fans around the world are able to view completed stories that were thought lost forever. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank The Doctor Who Club of Australia, www.dwca.org.au for the opportunity of these interviews during one their Whovention events based in Sydney, Australia.

    Farscape, what a show? How many of you have watched this Australian show? Well, Gerri and Eugenia are proud to say “Made in Australia”, this is a show that breaks the mould in the use of Muppets! Well not Muppets but animatronics, done so well that you actually see the characters as real and find that you invest them with feeling and reality and the show is full of fun, suspense and damn good action! We had black and white, red and blue skin, tentacles coming from the head and even a ship that was a sentient being!   Jim Henson’s Creature workshop was able to create characters that were multi-layer as well as a few “nut-jobs”, action heroes and some more really, really nutjobs! In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia get to talk with one of the actors from the series none other than Gigi Edgley who played Chiana, the black and white alien who may be classed as one of the nutjobs! Gigi now hosts Brian Henson’s show, “Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge” where you get to see how animatronics are made and used in movies and TV. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Gigi for the interview, catch her at her website www.gigiedgley.com, Facebook https://www.facebook.com/gigiedgley.fanpage?fref=ts and on twitter @GigiEdgley.

    That show about the girl with a “stick” and “attitude”! In this episode guess which show Gerri and Eugenia are talking about, yes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Having talked about this show before, but as you know, they can wax lyrical about anything! They discuss the strong character growth across the seven seasons and still feel that the show stands up today, yes even with the clothes and the hairstyles!  So, whom are they talking with in this show, the lovely funny and very talented Amber Benson, actor, author, director and producer! Amber Benson is also a big “geek” into sci fi and fantasy, comic books and more! Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Culture Shock Events, catch them at www.cultureshockevents.com to see what events they have coming to a city near you.

    In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about the hero! Heroes such as Robin Hood and King Arthur ignite our imagination allowing us to take part in stories where “might” is fought and good wins! Stories such as these have inspired us for thousands of years and television and film, have since their invention given us many interpretations of these stories! Eugenia and Gerri talk about the variations over the years and how film and program makers can at times sanitise history and the violence, this may be fairly serious subject, but they don’t talk about it for long because they have three interviews from such shows with Alfie Allen, Theon Greyjoy from Game of Thrones, Tom Hopper, Sir Percival From Merlin and Mark Ryan from Robin of Sherwood, armour, swords and arrows who could want more? They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from www.supanova.com.au  www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com  for Tom and Alfie and www.armageddonexpo.com/nz/  for Mark’s interview.

Resistance is Futile - Manu Intiraymi

Podcast106-ResistanceIsFutile-ManuIntiraymi.mp3

Resistance is futile; you will listen to this episode as Eugenia and Gerri talk Borg. Are they the best villains ever come up with in a Sci Fi show? Whilst this species came to our attention with the appearance of Q, and proved to Starfleet there were some nasty surprises out there in the Universe. Where did they come from? One of the most iconic scenes in Sci Fi happened when Jonathan Frakes directed First Contact, who was not amazed as the Queen was constructed before our eyes? Then we turn to ST: Voyager when 7of 9, comes to us as the sexy Borg! Then along comes the Borg children and one of those is whom Eugenia and Gerri interview in this episode. Manu Intiraymi, known as Icheb, the child who was made into a weapon by his people. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scotty from First Contact Conventions for the opportunity to interview Manu. Catch them at www.firstcontactconventions.com.au to find out what they are up to next.

A Hat Full of Fantasy - Terry Pratchett - A Tribute

Podcast104-AHatFullOfFantasy-TerryPratchett.mp3

This is our tribute to Terry Pratchett! Long Long ago in a place far away a mind found a world that was on a disc supported by four elephants standing on the back of a giant turtle called the Great A’Tuin. That mind was the fantastical one of Sir Terry Pratchett inventor of the Disc World and the many wonderful characters that reside there! Terry a social commentator is such a master of telling a tale that it is only when you reflect back on the story (that you could not put down) that you know that what the story is really about! With that in mind Eugenia and Gerri invited one of their friends Jo, who is as fanatical about Terry as Gerri is! They discuss the world of Terry Pratchett, the characters they love and their favourite. Terry and his daughter have set up a Production Company and plan to make television series’ about the Discworld, keep checking the net to see when or if they may be transmitted!
