Cover blurb:
"If you fluffed, but the take was technically OK, they’d let it pass. I learnt to say a four letter word as soon as I’d done something like that so they couldn’t buy that take."

At first it seemed like a good idea to take CAROLINE JOHN back to locations used for her DOCTOR WHO stories. No-one knew it would rain half the day and that she hadn’t actually been to the places the producer chose.

Apart from that everything worked out perfectly. NICHOLAS BRIGGS got to see Southall, Surrey and Buckinghamshire. CAROLINE got to remember what it was like shooting on location for DOCTOR WHO and everyone got wet.

Luckily, somewhere between the A3 and the M40, NICK managed to quiz CAROLINE about her casting as scientist LIZ SHAW and what it was like working alongside JON PERTWEE as the third DOCTOR’s first assistant. They even met someone who remembered shooting DOCTOR WHO in a quarry 25 years ago!

Join NICK and CARRIE as they desperately search for a location she actually filmed at...

NICHOLAS BRIGGS takes CAROLINE JOHN on a whirlwind trip back to locations used in DOCTOR WHO... unfortunately she doesn’t recognise any of them!

That aside it went well... NICK got to see Southall, Buckinghamshire and Surrey, CAROLINE remembered what it was like filming DOCTOR WHO and everyone got wet.

Somewhere between the A3 and M40, Nick managed to quiz CAROLINE about her casting as scientist LIZ SHAW and working with JON PERTWEE. They even found someone who remembered filming DOCTOR WHO in a quarry 35 years ago!
