Q/A: Jonathan Morris

We're asking, they're answering.



What's your desert island Doctor Who story?

The Keys Of Marinus features a very good desert island.


Who's the best actor never to have played the Doctor?

Pip Torrens.


Who is the sexiest Doctor Who producer?

Without doubt it's my producer at Big Finish, David Richardson.


Ian Levine. Discuss.

His enthusiasm and tenacity are only to be admired.


Which Doctor Who scene frightened you most as a child?

I remember finding the dream sequences in Kinda disturbing, but to be honest I found Doctor Who so exciting there wasn't really room to be frightened as well. I remember being quite uneasy about The Horns Of Nimon as well, mainly at the thought of being trapped in one of those plastic coffins like a Star Wars figure. And the bit with the campers in The Stones Of Blood.

Have you ever thought about Doctor Who during sexual intercourse?

I find remembering individual Hartnell episode titles is a great way of deferring The Brink of Disaster.  


What are the most embarrassing lengths you have ever gone to in order to ensure you didn't miss an episode of Doctor Who?

I ran about two miles to get home in time for The Age Of Steel and nearly gave myself a heart attack in the process.


Shag, Marry, Kill - Caroline John, Damaris Hayman, Julian Glover

Definitely marry Julian Glover; he was Scaroth, the last of the Jagaroth.


Who's the most famous Doctor Who related person you've got in your phone contacts?

The Time Team's Will Howells.


Do you have all your Doctor Who DVDs in transmission order on your shelf?

Yes. Otherwise how would I sleep at night?


Which single episode would you like to be recovered?

I'd like an uncut copy of The Faceless Ones part three.


Which is your favourite regeneration scene?



On a scale of nought to ten, how much do like Katy Manning's DVD commentary contributions?

Ten, although I haven't heard any of them.


Has a Doctor Who story ever made you cry?

Yes, but only while I was writing it.


Name a Doctor Who story you've never seen.

The Killer Cats Of Gen-Singh

What evidence is there in your home that you like Doctor Who?

A battered copy of Falls The Shadow by Daniel O'Mahony propping up the dining room table.
