On the Geektown Radio podcast this week, we have a very Con-lagged Dave and Bex as we talk all things MCM London Comic Con! It was a brilliant three days in the UK capital celebrating all sorts of assorted geekery. We chat about the Con in general, the guests, the interviews, the comic book creators, and of course, the cosplay. We also have the press panel interview from MCM with 'Doctor Who' star, Paul McGann.

Paul McGann has starred in a host of tv, film, theatre and audio dramas over the years, but in our geeky circles, is best known as the 8th incarnation of The Doctor. Whilst he only appeared on screen in the 1996 television film (and reprised the role for 'The Night of the Doctor' mini-episode), he has been playing the part in the Big Finish audiobooks for years. Technically, he is the longest-serving Doctor, despite having the shortest amount of screen time. He's also famous for his part in classic British film 'Withnail and I', and has appeared tv shows such as 'The Bletchley Circle', 'Waking the Dead', and 'Holby City'.

In the interview, he chats about his time as The Doctor, shooting the "film" (although, as he points out, it was really a tv pilot), and what he thinks of the current incarnation. He also discusses the 'Withnail and I' drinking game...
