Sophie Aldred is best known as Ace – companion of 7th Doctor Sylvester McCoy in Doctor Who, but has also provided voices for TV shows like Bob the Builder, Bananas in Pyjamas and Tree Fu Tom.
Sophie shares her love of Gerry Anderson shows, but Thunderbirds in particular. How she insisted on being called Scott, how her university dissertation was all about Thunderbirds, and how her love of role-playing as International Rescue’s oldest hero brother may have had an influence on her playing the universe-saving Doctor’s companion.
Richard and Jamie also bring you some news, a viewer email, and general chat.
Chris Dale rounds of the episode with the latest Randomiser pick.
