Gallifrey One 2012: Voice Actors

GALLIFREY ONE 2012

I didn’t really realize how big the Doctor Who universe was until I went to Gallifrey One this past weekend. I didn’t realize that there is also an ongoing audio series! They are known as the Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories.  I attended the panel called Travels With the Doctor with three of the voice actors: Beth Chalmers, Lisa Greenwood and Philip Olivier.

Olivier is particularly popular among Whovians who were familiar with the audio stories. I think it was mostly because he’s good looking and he plays one of the Doctor’s companions, a character named Hex. Greenwood also plays a companion to the 6th Dcotor named Flip and Chalmers plays a companion to the 7th Doctor named Raine. Love their characters’ names, personally.

They were all very charming and funny on stage. Greenwood, in particular, was a girl after my own heart since she seems to have a bigger crush on David Tennant than I do. Although she seems to be slowly moving to the Matt Smith camp too. There were a lot of jokes about Olivier taking off his shirt while Chalmers egged him on. They were all big fans of the series themselves and spoke about what a great feeling it was to be asked to play a companion to the Doctor.
