Scott Fredericks 1943-2017

All of us at Magic Bullet were very sorry to hear of the death of Scott Fredericks, who played Carnell in the Kaldor City series (reprising a role he first performed in Blake's 7). Scott was a good friend and supporter of Magic Bullet for many years, and he will be very much missed. Read the obituary on Irish Equity's webpage here.

Fifty Things About The Concorde

This month, our 50 Things... reflects all the wonders of Davison-era Doctor Who: obsessing about aviation and dinosaurs, Anthony Ainley dressing up, and altogether too many supporting characters. Tune into Time-Flight, for footage of vintage 1980s Heathrow and many pointless Concordes!

Kaldor on the Box

The Blue Box Podcast Episode 247 interviews Dylan Rees, author of "Downtime-- The Lost Years of Doctor Who", who has this to say about Kaldor City:

"Kaldor City is an audio series, by a company called Magic Bullet, which is set in the world of Chris Boucher’s Doctor Who... so it involves “The Robots of Death” Commander Uvanov, a character called Kaston Iago played by Paul Darrow, it's got Carnell from an episode of Blake’s 7 and it almost sounds like, what we’d call now, the ultimate fanwank, but it is one of the best things to be made related to the Doctor Who universe.
It’s funny, it’s action packed, it’s a gripping six CD story... it’s an incredible production, and I’d never hear it until I did this book, and I wasn’t even going to cover it. I was like, “I’m sure they did like two CDs and that was it..” and then all of a sudden I found it and I was blown away.
So my one recommendation out of anything that comes out of this book is that you have to find Kaldor City and their follow up Faction Paradox."
