Eddie Robson: “It’s Easy to Take Tennant For Granted”

Acclaimed BBC Radio and Big Finish Writer, Eddie Robson recently spoke with the DoctorWhoThing blog about his writing career and obsession with Doctor Who. For those who may not be initiated with Big Finish, Robson has penned several highly regarded audio dramas, including Human Resources, Urgent Calls, and The Five Companions.

A few of the highlights from the interview:

On Doctor Who burnout:

“So there was a period where I was hardly watching any—I remember getting the [The Tomb of the Cybermen] DVD for Christmas and my attention sliding off the screen, I just felt I’d seen this stuff too many times.”

The Best Non-TV Who adventure:

Human Nature. I was reading the New Adventures… I devoted my teenage years to them. But Human Nature sticks in my mind as the peak of that range.”

On which incarnation is ‘his’ Doctor:

“I find it hard to separate Hartnell, Davison and Tennant. At first I thought Smith was even better than Tennant, but now I look back and it’s easy to take for granted how great Tennant was in the part”

Robson is currently working on Series 2 of his acclaimed BBC Radio sitcom,  Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully. Read the interview in its entirety over at the DoctorWhoThing blog. Sound off below and let us know what you think of the interview and Robson’s works!


“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
