A Conversation With Rufus Hound (Part 3)

For my first interview of the year, I managed to snag myself a pretty good one, if I do say so myself.

To date, we’ve had three stories from Big Finish where Rufus Hound plays the Time Lord known as the Meddling Monk, or just the Monk. We’ve had The Black HoleThe Blame Game and The Side of The Angels. In June, we’ll be getting a Fourth Doctor Short Trip entitled How To Win Planets And Influence People, which I can’t wait for. Why? Because we’re getting more of Hound’s Monk!
