Host M.A. Solko has just wrapped up 3 days at Time Eddy, a new convention held in Wichita, KS. Among the many guests was Doctor Who Season 24-26 Script Editor Andrew Cartmel. Mr. Cartmel was kind enough to sit with us for an interview and went above & beyond as a guest! Take a listen as he discusses his tenure on the show, as well as upcoming project The Vinyl Detective: Written in Dead Wax.
I also met with podcasters from the show Traveling the Vortex who provided us with a lot of great feedback. Their show focuses on two long-term Whovians introducing a new fan to the series, both classic and contemporary. Their show is a lot of fun and worth checking out! http://travelingthevortex.com/
