Season 2, Episode 8

Wicked! We talk with Sophie Aldred (Ace)

The iconic, anarchistic and utterly fierce companion to the seventh Doctor, Ace, is in the house! I talked with the wonderful Sophie Aldred about all things Ace - how she got the role, how much of Ace is actually her, and where the character was going to end up before the show's cancellation.

And yes, there is extensive jacket talk!

In fact, this episode is very Ace heavy! It's a jam-packed look at one of Doctor Who's most enduring companions, and we hope you enjoy it.

It’s about time.

The Doctor Is In is a weekly Doctor Who podcast from Paul Verhoeven (ABC's Steam Punks, 28 Plays Later, Loose Units)!

The show is a weekly comedic look at Doctor Who, featuring an array of guests from the show itself, as well as from ABC’s Whovians, and elsewhere from the world of celebrity fans. Along with sketches, Who news and looks at the history of the show, The Doctor Is In pairs perfectly with Doctor Who.

Which makes it sound like a wine. It isn’t a wine.
