Doctor Who stars lend their talents to audio story for NHS

Posted Filed under

A wide variety of actors from Doctor Who and its spin-off Class, along with Doctor voice impressionists, narrated Time and Doctors, a short unofficial, non-canonical Doctor Who ‘storybook’ audio story – about time, chaos and all those who go by the title of doctor.

Recorded during lockdown, the confirmed contributors are: Colin Baker, David Bradley, Carole Ann Ford, William Russell, Jemma Powell, Maureen O’Brien, Peter Purves, Ajjaz Awad, Elliot Chapman, Chris Walker-Thomson, Wendy Padbury, Marshall Tankersley, Katy Manning, Daisy Ashford, Jon Culshaw, Siobhan Gallichan, Bart Suavek, Ian Sears, Joanna McGibbon, Sophie Iles, Josh Snares, Mark Strickson, Nicola Bryant, Bonnie Langford, Wink Taylor, Sophie Aldred, Lisa Bowerman, Matthew Toffolo, Yee Jee Tso, Iain Cameron, Athena Stamos, Ben Tedds, Ryan Aplin, Pete Walsh, Elliott Crossley, Catherine Tate, Jonathon Carley, Jacqueline King, Robert Moloney, Harry Draper, Arthur Darvill, Alex Kingston, Joivan Wade, Jessica Martin, Greg Austin, Sophie Hopkins, Jordan Renzo, Fady Elsayed, Ellie Chapman and Seylan Baxter.

The story was written, directed and produced by Jamie H. Cowen with efforts from Jeffrey Princeton (Producer), Harry McDowell (Theme Composer), Charlie Ling (Opening & Closing Visual Designer & Creator) and Benji Clifford, Paul Crispino, Christopher Eden & Hayden Powell (Music).

Cowen issued this statement about the fundraiser:

The NHS is not only integral to so many, it has played some part in my own personal life (not least ensuring my own stability when I was born premature) and my mother works as an operating department practitioner, so I know all too well the difficulties of their work. Now, more so than ever – as we find ourselves continuing through this unusual and hard time – they need our help. And I hope this story can both help raise money for them, and give Whovian listeners a nice boost of hope.
