Want to meet a Doctor Who actor? In many cases, you’re going to end up paying big bucks to spend time in the presence of someone you admire. You could have a chat, maybe get an autograph, or even have your photo taken with your hero. It’s up to you – you’re paying, after all.

This week’s Kasterborous podcast looks at the costs involved with meeting a Doctor Who actor and what happens next. Do you feel good about it, or might it be a disappointment?
