Voiceworks, a Manchester-based collective of audio and voice technology experts, has produced two programmes for the BBC to mark sixty years of Doctor Who.
The shows look back at the history of the programme, which has gained fans across generations and feature some legendary guests, including Katy Manning and Steven Moffat.
Doctor Who: The Welsh Connection sees presenter Katherine Jenkins OBE take listeners on a journey through time to explore the special role that Wales has played in the unrivalled legacy of Doctor Who.
The second programme, Doctor Who: 60 Years of Friends and Foes is presented by broadcaster, comedian, writer and dedicated Whovian Sue Perkins. It explores how Doctor Who has reflected our social history both on and off screen. The show provides everything from archival footage to exciting interviews with Doctor Who Legends, including former companions, writers, and the voice of the Daleks, Nicholas Briggs.
Both shows are produced by Voiceworks Producer Jamie Griffiths. The programmes form part of the organisation’s ambitious strategy to work with major brands and help them unlock the power of audio, through the production of high-quality audio content.
Kyle Evans, director of content at Voiceworks and executive producer on the programmes said: “We have enjoyed crafting these sixty-year anniversary programmes for the BBC Doctor Who and thank you to Katherine Jenkins OBE and Sue Perkins for presenting them. For us to work on something that is helping to celebrate the legacy has been very special. Here’s to the next sixty years!”
Both shows are available to stream on demand on BBC Sounds now.
