- Travelling Companions - Katarina by Tim Hunter.
- Travelling Companions - Sara Kingdom by Tim Hunter.
- Directing Who on Video - Christopher Barry on the making of the Robot, interviewed by Marcus Hearn.

When the opportunity presented itself to talk with both Jon Pertwee and Sylvester McCoy at this year's Panopticon, the chance was too good to pass up. Doctor Who Magazine's Joe Nazzaro, acting as interviewer and occasional straight man sat down to talk with the Third and Seventh Doctors, along with a few other Who actors who couldn't resist making an occasional contribution.
