Our picks this month, in no particular order, are…
Acting for Others Presents… Miriam Margolyes and Sir Derek Jacobi
In a new podcast, fundraising for theatre workers in need, two theatrical legends meet. Highlights include Jacobi’s mortifying Boris Karloff faux pas and Margolyes’ remarkable observation upon meeting Harold Pinter. It’s vintage stuff!

The Doctor Who Show: Interview – Doctor Who Am I
In a timely extract from their archive, recorded in 2015, this is an interview with the Doctor Who TV Movie scribe and now documentary maker Matthew Jacobs. With Doctor Who Am I now released, it’s an interesting chat (and a reminder of how long such projects can be in gestation!)
