Paul McGann and the April issue in the Scottish Field podcast

Former Doctor Who star Paul McGann is the special guest in the 40th Scottish Field podcast.

The Withnail and I, Monocled Mutineer and Hornblower actor was in Scotland on Sunday, and he took time out to chat to Scottish Field about his love of silent film, as well as some of his work in Scotland.

He was a guest at Hippfest, the silent film festival in Bo’ness, to provide live narration for the closing film of the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival, ‘L’Homme du Large’ (1920).
