5: Two Lines in Doctors Podcast - S4E5 - Green Door
In this episode we welcome Ann Brown of Made It Theatre and welcome back Daniel Brennan who we had on last year when he talked about Off Cut. Daniel is directing Ann in Green Door, her self penned piece about domestic abuse. We talk about her writing the piece and the reasons behind it, how it has progressed from bits of paper to a full length piece. Also her love of Burnley F.C. Because we all have our faults.We then discuss the current hot topic, at least in my house, of castings for Generation X and Baby Boomers. And if you don't know what they are, then you aren't one. Daniel has an opinion. Oh boy, does he.Tickets for the King's Arms here: http://www.kingsarmssalford.com/mc-events/green-door/Tickets for Square Chapel here: https://www.squarechapel.co.uk/whats-on/green-door/

4: Two Lines in Doctors Podcast - S4E4 - Joe Walsh
2020. Blimey. You know that means we're as far away from 2000 as 1980 is. Steve hadn't left primary school by then. Some say he never has.Anyway, Happy New Year. And in this first episode of 2020 we have actor, writer, director, producer Joe Walsh. Joe talks about his theatre company, Two In A Bed and their forthcoming productions, the sold out Manchester Minutes and Fossils which will be on during the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival. He also talks about what it was like to play Joy Division's Ian Curtis in the play New Dawn Fades.And then we get down to the hot topic of the moment. No, not Brexit. No, not Harry and Meghan. No, not Liverpool's relentless pursuit of the Premier League. No, the hot topic is at what age do you become an "older" actor and the pitfalls of setting up a casting page on Facebook.Tickets for Fossils, which is on at the Salford Arts Theatre on July 19th can be found here....https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/salfordartstheatre/fossils-by-joe-walsh-part-of-the-greater-manchester-fringe-festival/2020-07-19/19:30/t-xormvn?fbclid=IwAR2I0sk9q7v8sJHbyEgdKF7bOGPZaqhrSZs5aXJIQ2qv47Xih9miPL0oaqg

3: Two Lines in Doctors Podcast - S4E3 - Steven Gidwaney
In our last episode before the Christmas break we sit down with (very) Mancunian actor Steven Gidwaney. Now, there is a button that you have to tick if there is too much swearing in an episode and we were fully prepared for this to be the first time we had to do that as Steve does have a liking for the colour blue, both his football team and the words that come out of his mouth. But what we got was probably the most honest episode that we have put out. We talk mental health, finances, family, his deep love for Corrie's Pat Phelan and, of course, if he has ever had two lines in Doctors.

2: Two Lines in Doctors Podcast - S4E2 - Caroline O'Hara
On this episode we have Burnley actor Caroline O'Hara.You may not know the name Caroline O'Hara, although you bloody should. But even if you don't know the name, you'll know the face. She has performed alongside some of the biggest names in acting, like Fozzie Bear. She was the most watched person on television last Christmas, no mean feat. And she regularly appears on television in the UK. But has she ever appeared in Doctors? That's the question. We sat down with Caroline in late Autumn at 53Two in Manchester and chewed the fat. We had a lot of laughs and delved deep into her career. Listen and enjoy.

1: Two Lines in Doctors - S4 E1 - John Mackie
New season. Autumn. New day. Monday. Same old, same old. And we kick off Autumn Mondays with actor/musician John Mackie as he talks about having two accents (handy as an actor), the difference between acting in an international TV series and continuing drama, what it's like being on stage in a public square in Europe and how a career as an estate agent is perfect training as an actor.John will be appearing in EXAM at the King's Arms, Salford between October 29 and November 3. It's sold out. So you've missed out. Unless you're in the future when he will be appearing in it again in London in August 2020. Unless he's been fired.

4: Two Lines in Doctors Podcast - S3E4 - Gill McVey
It's season three, episode four. We've stopped caring now about calling it a season. After all, we'll all be owned by Donald Trump this time next year so we'd better get used to it.In this episode, Steve sits down with Harrogate actor Gill McVey to talk about her career and her new play "A Shadow of Doubt" which she is taking to the Edinburgh Fringe this year. There is also mention of whether or not Huddersfield is the rainiest place in England (it is) and whether or not older actors can be considered to be 'emerging actors' (they can). Gill can be found on social media @gillmcvey on Twitter and @gillmcveyactor on Instagram. Her theatre company, Time Will Tell, is on Facebook at Time Will Tell Theatre Company and on Instagram @timewilltelltheatrecompanyTickets for "A Shadow of Doubt" can be found at https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/shadow-of-doubtGot something to say about Two Lines in Doctors?

He also talks about his family life, whether he prefers Manchester to Liverpool and, of course, whether or not he has had two lines in Doctors.Please note, that this is the first episode of TLID that has that dirty swearing in it, so we've ticked the explicit content box.

Although there is nothing wrong with provincial cities. Prue and Steve also moan about being fifty or over, as they usually do, and discuss what they have been up to over the past fortnight.

4: Two Lines in Doctors Podcast - S1E4 - Andy Pilkington and John Tueart
It's Series One, Episode Four this week (we don't say Season...we're not American). We sat down on actual chairs in our favourite room at Hope Studios (still near the toilet door) and spoke to Andy Pilkington and John Tueart about leaving their professional positions and becoming actors, writers and directors. Both Andy and John worked in the legal profession and Steve also has a law degree (actually he has two, but he doesn't speak about it much) so there was a common frame of reference around the table. Prue was there as well...... Prue and Steve have been busy over the past fortnight doing personal stuff (slackers) so haven't had time to get together to record their usual banter (or 'bantz' as we believe the kids say) so you've been spared that. They have recorded a separate intro and outro though, so you're not deprived.

3: Two Lines in Doctors Podcast - S1E3 - Armistice Special
Episode Three. Steve has hit an age milestone. He doesn't want to talk about it. It's 50. Don't let on you know. But this episode is not about that. It's about the one hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War. In this episode, Steve and Prue remember their fathers, who both fought in World War II, both as fathers and as ones who served. They also talk to Parissa Zamanpour whose play Somme Men has its premiere at the King's Arms in Salford this coming weekend. It is a story based on the experiences of Parissa's great, great grandfather Harry Hayes, who fought and died in the Great War. It's a long episode, but we think it's worth it. Lest we forget.
