Elisabeth Sladen

Audio tapes of interviews from Benjamin Cook a former writer for Radio Times, Doctor Who Magazine, TV Times and The Telegraph shared this and more on his website.

The new, 100-page issue of Doctor Who Magazine is out today, and celebrates the life of Elisabeth Sladen, who died earlier this year. Among those tributes from friends, family and colleagues are my interviews with Doctors Tom Baker, David Tennant, and Matt Smith. Here are some exclusive audio clips from those interviews:

Matt Smith (DWM 440)

This issue also features Lis’ final magazine interview, which I conducted last year, originally for Radio Times, but only 10% was ever published… until now. DWM presents this interview in full, for the first time. Asked how she feels when Sarah Jane tops polls of the greatest companion ever, Lis said:

“I can’t take that seriously. You have to look at the time I was in the show, and the Doctors I was paired with. That’s not me being bashful You can have the most wonderful Romeo and the most wonderful Juliet, but if they don’t come together and match, you’ve got nothing. You’ve got to believe it. If you can make people believe, you’ve won.”
