Aussiecon4_0077.png Last September, in Melbourne, science fiction fans came from all over the world to hear us interview two of the writers of the new series of Doctor Who, Paul Cornell and Robert Shearman.

You can feel like you were actually there by listening to this episode. You will miss all the visual jokes but you’ll be able to hear the audience laugh and then you can laugh at the same time and just imagine what’s happening on the stage.

Enjoy it:

Share your memories of AussieCon, Doctor Who or meeting John Richards by sending us a friendly email.

Next week: We’re still on a break and don’t have anything planned so just listen to this episode again.

In the meantime, you can find us on twitter and facebook. Also, Paul Cornell is on twitter.

Special thanks to David Ashton from Sample and Hold for all of his wonderful audio engineering help on this episode. Very special thanks to Danny Oz for the use of his photo.
