The 42cast Episode 94: The Elliot Chapman Interview

Ben Jackson

The 42cast is proud to welcome Elliot Chapman for an interview. In Doctor Who circles, Chapman is best known for playing the role of companion Ben Jackson in Big Finish’s Companion Chronicles and Early Adventures. We talk with Chapman about his career prior to acting, getting started in the profession, and getting cast at Big Finish. We also discuss his opinions on Doctor Who (spoilers: He’s a fan!), how he approaches recreating a character created by another actor, what it’s like working with co-stars Anneke Wills and Frazer Hines, and working with Tom Baker. We close things out by talking to him about why he’s leaving the character behind and what he’s looking to do in the future.

As this is an interview episode there is no five-minute controversy.
