Some Doctor Who casting is inexplicable. You might call it bizarre, bonkers, barmy, or stunt casting.
In this podcast, Christian Cawley and James McLean consider the history of Doctor Who’s guest casting ups and downs, highs and lows, covering names such as (but not limited to) Barbara Windsor, John Cleese, Simon Pegg, Ken Dodd, Richard Briers, Stubby Kaye, and that woman in Silver Nemesis who no one under 50 in 1988 actually knew.
