TYPE 40: A Doctor Who Podcast
Episode 4: Generational Doctors (Plus an Interview with Author Jonathan Melville)
Welcome to TYPE 40: A Doctor Who Podcast here on The Fandom Podcast Network! On this podcast, we will take an in-depth and closer look at this beloved television series that has shaped the landscape of science fiction for over five decades, and we are counting down the days towards Jodi Whittaker's Doctor Who SEASON 11 to premiere very soon this fall!
On this episode of Type 40 Kyle along with Dan and Norm explore the two Doctor's who at this moment in time seem to stand out as being the most recognized for being the Doctor.  Plus as is usually the case each one represent a different period one from Classic Who and one from Modern Who.

We are of course talking about the 4th Doctor Tom Baker and the 10th Doctor David Tennant.

We get into the Type 40 and take a look at what made these two Doctor's stand out so much, from the stories to the companions to the creators to the men themselves we try and cover as many angle's as possible on these to "Generational Doctor's"

We also have a special surprise guest for you as FPNet Co-Founder Kevin Reitzel sat down recently with author Jonathan Melville to discuss his upcoming 1986 Highlander book (The Highlander book Interview is coming soon to the Blood of Kings Highlander podcast on the Fandom Podcast Netwrok). During Kevin's recent trip to Edinburgh Scotland, he met up with Jonathan to interview him regarding his new book, and found out Jonathan himself, is a true Whovian.  So they sat down and talked about his favorite Doctor, companion as well as sharing a great David Tennant story that is a must listen.
