Day 17 – ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2019

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s Day 17 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2019.

He’s battled against Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, Quarks and Yeti! Guess who this is! 😀

Tim Bradley with Frazer Hines at ‘Pandorica 2015’, Bristol, September 2015

Frazer Hines is well-known for playing Jamie, the Second Doctor’s companion in ‘Doctor Who’. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Frazer at many conventions over the years. The first time I met Frazer was at ‘Regenerations 2011’, Swansea, September 2011. I’ve enjoyed meeting and chatting to Frazer.

I’m happy Frazer signed my DVD covers for ‘The Mind Robber’ and ‘The Invasion’ at the Swansea convention. They’re two of my favourite ‘Doctor Who’ stories with Patrick Troughton’s Doctor. I’ve enjoyed sharing with Frazer how much I’ve enjoyed him as Jamie in the TV series and Big Finish audios.

Other times I’ve seen Frazer at conventions include ‘Stars of Time’, Weston-super-Mare, July 2012; ‘Regenerations 2013’, Swansea, September 2013; ‘Pandorica 2015’, Bristol, September 2015; ‘Regenerations 2016’, Swansea, September 2016; the ‘Folkestone Film, TV and Comic Con’ in May 2018 and the ‘Film & Comic Con Cardiff 2019’ in March 2019. I’m glad I’ve seen Frazer at those events.

As well as my DVD covers for ‘The Mind Robber’ and ‘The Invasion’, Frazer has also signed my DVD covers for ‘The Tomb of the Cybermen’, ‘The Krotons’; ‘The War Games’ and ‘The Two Doctors’ as well as my CD covers for ‘The Evil of the Daleks’ TV soundtrack; ‘The Wheel In Space’ TV soundtrack; ‘The Second Doctor Box Set’ and ‘Shadow of Death’ from the ‘Destiny of the Doctor’ series. I’ve also had an A4 print of ‘The Enemy of the World’ artwork by Alistair Pearson signed by Frazer Hines himself. 😀

At ‘Stars of Time’ in 2012, I purchased Frazer’s ‘Hines Sight’ autobiography to which he signed it for me as well. Frazer has shared many wonderful anecdotes during signings and on panels at conventions, talking about what it was like to work on the show itself and I’m so glad to have met him.

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

    Big Finish has done a lot exploring Jamie as a character & Frazer Hines has been a excellent ambassador for the show, his interpretation of the Second Doctor is spot on.

      Indeed! I enjoyed both Frazer Hines as the Second Doctor and Peter Purves as the First Doctor recently in ‘Daughter of the Gods’.

      It’s amazing Frazer still shows great enthusasism for the show after all these years. I’m very pleased he and Wendy Padbury have done many Big Finish audios lately.

      Thanks Simon.

      Tim. 🙂
