Catching Up With the Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker

The Doctor (Colin Baker) in Dr. WhoColin Baker played the sixth Doctor in the long running series Doctor Who from 1984-1986. The star of television, audio books, print, stage and even video games, Colin Baker is the only actor to have played the Doctor in each of those genres. I caught up with Colin for an interview at  Rhode Island ComicCon.

Hello Colin, a pleasure to meet you! Thank you for chatting with Shallow Graves for a bit.

Colin: My great pleasure, nice to talk to you.

What do you think about the resurgence of popularity for Doctor Who, and how has it affected you?

Colin: Well, it’s always been popular, of course. It was off the air in England in 1989, and amazingly, for the next ten years, remained almost as popular. There were still conventions; there were still fans demanding more. We were doing lots of audio stuff with Big Finish. So, Doctor Who has really never gone away.

Shallow Graves Magazine wrapped up our first day at Chicago Comic Con with the game show of a lifetime hosted by none other than Mr. Bruce Campbell. “Last Fan Standing” was an experience like none other I have witnessed. Upon walking in you were given a remote with four options on it. This lead me to believe that the whole audience would just answer a handful of questions all night. However, as the stage lit up, four podiums were exposed. Continue reading Bruce Campbell Asks Who is the Last Fan Standing at Chicago Comic Con

Karl Urban Dishes On “Dredd” at Chicago Comic Con

Karl Uban at Chicago Comic Con Growing up we all have an idol that we look up to. One of my biggest idols is Karl Urban (Dredd, LOTR, Almost Human).  Ever since I saw him on Hercules where he played Cupid I’ve been a fan.  I had the pleasure of telling him this directly upon meeting him at Chicago Comic Con.  He was quite gracious and thanked me.  But, at the mention of Dredd, we both found we had common ground as total geeks and fans of the Judge Dredd comic book series. Karl Urban is the most recent actor to take up the role of plays the one and only fascist street judge, “Judge Joseph Dredd” in a dystopian society filled with overpopulation and crime and where appointed judges keep the cities safe.
