Katrina “Kat” Griffiths is a Canadian shpadoinkle geek who found Doctor Who in a very backwards way, through Queer as Folk (US) inspired by the UK version by Russell T. Davies which then lead to Torchwood. Thanks to a fantastic improv community in her home city she started taking improv classes & quickly learned how good improv with great people can get someone out of their shell. She hopes this podcast can do the same for other people. She’s also a co-host on Verity! Podcast (an all female Doctor Who podcast), has her own music podcast called Start the Music, & is a voracious fanfiction writer. Katrina is not a contrarian no matter how many times other people say she is. You’ll hear Katrina as the 10th Doctor, Susan, Vicki, Adric & Mel, plus Panna the Wise Woman, Krans, Professor Kyle & several others.

He has a fondness for creating characters & working with different accents & dialects to bring depth to them.

Randy Cook has been a Doctor Who fan since 1981 when, after being nudged by a classmate to check out the show, he was hooked immediately by watching a late-night PBS showing of “The Horns of Nimon”. His day job is being an IT Specialist (avoiding Windows as much as possible) & he serves as an organist for two local churches, having a long history as accompanist for various choral groups & amateur musical theatre productions. Randy discovered an escape from shyness in the form of pretending to be someone else through acting. Smaller community theatre roles led to indie films & YouTube videos, most recently a recurring role as Frank Stein in the current series “THE DEADERSONS”. “Doctor Who’s Line, is it? … Anyway!” provides a wonderful way to combine his love of Doctor Who with a new challenge — improv comedy! You’ll hear Randy as the 7th Doctor, Harry Sullivan, Mickey & Rory, as well as Old Mother, Ganatus, Altos, Autloc, Bigon, Sanders, the Terileptil leader, Lt Scott, Ringway, Magpie, Bracewell & many, many more.

Kerry Schofield is a British 30-something (or late twenties as she prefers) working, studying single mum of two, originally from London but now residing in a beautiful rural seaside town. A latecomer to technology, Kerry is just beginning her blogging adventure & until now, was a complete podcast virgin. Kerry blagged herself into the mayhem of DWLIIA with very few credentials other than a serious love of the good Doctor. Kerry discovered Doctor Who at the start of Christopher Eccleston’s reign, & has wholeheartedly taken on the Whovian geek way of life- evidenced by four Who-themed tattoos, 3 cardboard cut-out Doctors that live in her downstairs loo, & a Dalek costume she adorns at every available opportunity. Kerry is still waiting for the TARDIS to turn up at her door, but while she does she is very excited to be a part of this new adventure. You’ll hear Kerry as the 13th Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith (70s/80s), Jackie Tyler & Amy Pond, as well as Gwyneth, Sarn, Bin Liner, Persuasion, Todd, Briggs, the Wire & various others.
