Geektown Podcast Extra: Yonderland Interview with Ben Willbond
To help celebrate the release of Sky 1’s excellent puppet fantasy show Yonderland on DVD on the 17th February 2014, we’ve got a special little bonus interview with one of the show’s stars – Ben Willbond.
Ben of course was part of the Horrible Histories team, but has also starred in BBC’s Rev, and The Thick Of It, and Channel 4’s Black Books.
Yonderland stars the cast of BBC’s Horrible Histories, and takes mum Debbie Maddox (Howe-Douglas) on an unexpected journey to an extraordinary world inhabited by a collection of eccentric and usually idiotic characters with only an Elf (and his grumpy stick ‘Nick’) by her side to guide her. The show has a mix of actors who play multiple parts, and the puppetry genius of long-time Jim Henson collaborators, Baker Coogan.
We previously spoke to the cast just before Yonderland aired on Sky 1, and if you want to hear that interview, you can find it on the Yonderland show page here and we also spoke to Martha and Larry recently, which you can hear here.
