This week, Adrian has a lovely chat with Dr David Doak! David is mostly known for his work with the Rare team that created GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. Dr Doak also went on to create TimeSplitters. Is he the true king of the fps genre?

He talks to Adrian about how this opportunity came about, converting GoldenEye from a rail shooter to a first-person shooter, rubbing shoulders with the stars and creating Timesplitters among many, many other fantastic retro gaming stories.
