will be heard interviewing David Tennant
on BBC Radio 4 on February 21
when Chain Reaction
returns for a new series.
In it, they talk about working on Doctor Who
- as well as playing extras on The Bill
The show's format sees the interviewee becoming the interviewer of a different guest the following week, with them talking to people whose work they admire and appreciate.
Next week (February 28), Tennant will be interviewing Richard Wilson
, who played Dr Constantine in The Empty Child
and The Doctor Dances
, while Wilson's interviewee the week after that
(March 6) will be Arabella Weir
, who used to lodge with Tennant and made him godfather to her youngest child.
Weir also played the Doctor in the Big Finish drama Exile
- which featured Tennant playing an unnamed Time Lord and a pub landlord. (Weir will round off the series of Chain Reaction by interviewing fellow Fast Show star Paul Whitehouse.)
The half-hour programmes start at 6.30pm. The series was recorded last year.
