Kieran Kinsella recently had the opportunity to talk with former Doctor Who and Emmerdale star Richard Franklin about the newly released Doctor Who DVD’s of Terror of the Autons and Planet of the Spiders as well as his other work. Away from the TV screens, Richard is also an accomplished writer and director and he was kind enough to talk to Best British TV ahead of a trip to direct his latest venture in Sweden.
