    Brilliant! It's wonderfull to hear Jon in an extended interview on many topics. Was the background music embedded back then? It crept up on me unawares. Great discussion on Torchwood and other more historical matters. Keep it up :)

    Wow, I ran off the bus after listening to this episode, and my first urge was also to post about the endless "Chariots of Fire" bed under the Pertwee interview. Looks like I wasn't the only one who was distracted from the content of the interview by the bed. :)

    Wonderful audio quality...and overall a great interview. What a fascinating multi-talented person is Jon Pertwee!

    Torchwood is an anagram for Doctor Who not an acronym...

    Another great podcast. I am really enjoying the specials, John Pertwee, Mark Ayres, Murray Gold. Keep it up.

    Not sure about my feelings on about having Torchwood on a separate podcast though, it seems that Torchwood is the current Dr Who news/chatter. If you do a separate feed how about "Torchwood: poshdock" (that an ANAGRAM of "Doctor Who: podshock" ;-) )

    Just wanted to add my very-late-to-the-party comments on the Jon Pertwee interview. That Podshock is definitely a keeper. I grew up watching the Tom Baker episodes of Who and didn't appreciate Pertwee until later in life. I wish I could have met him at a convention. He has the most amazing voice. I just downloaded an episode of the Worzel Gummidge so I can see what that was all about. That interview was a real treat. I can't wait to hear the other interviews you have stashed away somewhere. Thanks again.
