Q/A Cavan Scott & Mark Wright

We're asking, they're answering.



Mark Wright and Cavan Scott with Jacqueline Pearce


What's your desert island Doctor Who story?

CS: Probably Talons, but that's an obvious choice isn't it. Don't care though – it's just lush.

MW: Seeds of Doom. It's so Doctor Who, yet so atypical. Talons would be a close second.


Who's the best actor that should have played the Doctor?

CS: Mark Wright

MW: That chap from TOWIE is very good, isn't he? I'd have cast Gary Russell.


Who is the sexiest Doctor Who producer?

CS: Cavan Scott. Well, Iris Wildthyme is sort of Doctor Who isn't it?

MW: Julie Gardner.


Who's the most famous Doctor Who related person you've got in your phone contacts?

CS: Mark Wright. Oh and Katy Manning

MW: Cavan Scott. And David Tennant.


Do you have all your Doctor Who DVDs in transmission order on your shelf?

CS: Yes. But some of the discs themselves are in the wrong boxes. I'm just one crazy kid.

MW: I have an 8-year-old stepson, so no.


Which single episode would you like to be recovered?

CS: Any of the missing Web of Fear episodes.

MW: Any of the Dalek Masterplan episodes.


Which is your favourite regeneration scene?

CS: Time and the Rani. No, I lie it's Caves of course. "Change my dear and it appears not a moment too soon." Still love that line…

MW: The War Games. Troughton losing his face is still pretty creepy.


Has a Doctor Who story ever made you cry?

CS: Dimensions in Time.

MW: Fear Her.


Which Doctor would/wouldn't you like to be trapped in a lift with and why?

CS: First choice: The Tenth - his sonic could get us out of anything. Second choice: The Sixth – his voice is even louder than mine making yelling help a bit easier.

Last choice: The First – the fact that he's in black and white would be too disconcerting.

MW: The Fifth as we could pass the time talking about cricket. Not sure I'd like to be trapped with the Eighth, he'd only stick around for 90 minutes then bugger off.


Have you ever watched The Web Planet twice?

CS: I've barely watched it once.

MW: Once. On fast forward. Even then it was too long.


Name a Doctor Who story you've never seen.

CS: The Angels Take Manhattan. (and if you don't want me to be a smart alec, The Mutants.)

MW: Galaxy Four.


Have you ever thought about Doctor Who during sexual intercourse?

CS: Not that I can remember. I wonder if Doctor Who has ever thought about me during sexual intercourse.

MW: Kit Pedler was mentioned on the radio one Sunday morning... I'm not saying anymore...


What evidence is there in your home that you like Doctor Who?

CS: Not much. Unless you go into my study. The Cyberman head is a big clue.

MW: The coasters I got for Christmas are a bit of a giveaway.


What percentage of your friends would know what "the Cartmel Masterplan" or "UNIT dating" means?

CS: 23.9 per-cent.

MW: 33.3333333333333 per-cent


What are the most embarrassing lengths you have ever gone to in order to ensure you didn't miss an episode of Doctor Who?

CS: I don't know about embarrassing lengths, but Mark and I did head home on my stag-do to watch Dalek. No strippers on Cav's stag-do, just Dalek bumps!

MW: What he said.


Give us a hint of the most scandalous behind the scenes Doctor Who gossip you know.

CS: Mark Wright likes to dress up as the Barbara in The Aztecs and drink cocoa.

MW: True fact that.



Cavan Scott, 56, and Mark Wright, 17, are not, contrary to popular opinion, homosexual lovers, though they have been in a creative marriage for ten years now. Apart from numerous plays for Big Finish, they also find time to write for Doctor Who Magazine and pursue extra-marital jobs when time allows.
