Big Finish Productions

The first in an intended  series of interview discs, in which people involved in the making of the audio productions from Big Finish would chat with producer Gary Russell - in the event only the McGann disc has been made so far.

Maggie Stables (The Sirens of Time's Ruthley and Baker companion Evelyn), India Fisher (Winter for the Adept's Peril and McGann companion Charlie) and Lisa Bowerman (McCoy companion Bernice) were interviewed by Russell in April 2001 for the CD-only release The Audio Companions, and the authors of the second season of McGann stories (Mark Gatiss, Robert Shearman, Paul Cornell, Caroline Simcox, Nicholas Briggs, Justin Richards and Alan Barnes) were also interviewed in July 2002 for a September release of the CD-only The Eighth Doctor Authors. In the months between the two interviews, however, Russell conducted a video interview with Paul McGann at the Marriot Bristol Royal Hotel, eventually released 2 days after the second Talks Back CD, and was planned to launch a series of further discs.

The cover art is by Clayton Hickman, who based it on his own design for the CDs, and the disc is PAL Region 0, with an E classification in the UK - it lasts 70'51" and has the catalogue number BFPDVDTB02.

Bonus features comprised of an interview with McGann and India Fisher (14'14") and 4'49" of outtakes from the main and Fisher interviews.
