I think people here might like this- a rare interview
with acclaimed DW writer Robert Holmes in 1981. I
don't think it's been posted here before:

Great find, thanks for posting the link - Robert Holmes is such a sadly missed writer, one of the best that Doctor Who ever had.
Is that a very young (and rather nervous) Gary Russell conducting the interview?

That was such a class-act interview. Holmes makes for very easy listening, not a trace of ego in there too. Liked his enthuiasm for new writers on the show, though as time proved, young writers really didnt start clicking for the old show 'till the tail-end of it

Will have to check that interview out when I get home! What a great find! Whenever he is mentioned on DVD extras they just show an old photo. I've never see nor heard an interview I don't think!
