Bernard Cribbins To Guest On Norton Radio ShowBookmark and Share

Thursday, 6 June 2013 - Reported by John Bowman
Bernard Cribbins will be a guest of Graham Norton on his BBC Radio 2 show on Saturday 8th June.

The veteran actor, who latterly played Wilfred Mott during the Tenth Doctor era but whose link with the show stretches back to 1966 and the film Daleks - Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D., will be talking about both Dalek films of the '60s, which have recently been released on Blu-ray. Cribbins has the unique distinction of being the only actor to have appeared with the Daleks in both the cinema and TV versions of the show.

He is the latest Doctor Who-related guest on the radio programme this year to mark Doctor Who's 50th anniversary and questions - to do with Doctor Who or not - can be submitted via

The radio show runs from 10am to 1pm and Cribbins is scheduled to be on air at 12.30pm, but the running order is subject to change. The programme should be available to listen to worldwide via the BBC iPlayer.

UPDATE - SUNDAY 9th JUNE: The interview - which lasts more than 18 minutes - is currently available to listen to via this link. In it, Cribbins reveals there is to be a second series of his CBeebies story-telling show Old Jack's Boat, which also featured fellow former companion actor Freema Agyeman in the first series. In addition, hints are dropped about the radio show marking Doctor Who's 50th anniversary in some way, and Norton pledges that they will involve Cribbins in it.
