Actor Will Thorp appeared in Doctor Who Series 2 episodes The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit, and will be providing the narration of the audio versions of BBC Books’ Forever Autumn and Sick Building
Casting back to 2006, Thorp seemed keen to continue his relationship with Doctor Who – indeed, he has since played opposite Sixth Doctor Colin Baker on stage.
In a BBC webchat conducted at the time of his guest slot in Doctor Who, Thorp revealed how excited he was to land a part in the cult series.
“It was fantastic, it was a little boy’s dream. Anything you do that you used to watch as a boy is surreal. It was just really exciting and a fantastic experience.”
When asked whether he would jump at the chance at another role, he said: “I’d definitely like to be back in it. There aren’t many jobs on TV where you’re playing and having fun.”
Thorp added: “You’ve got a fantastic team behind it. They believe in that project so much, so when you’re in it you feel you’re in something really special.
“I think it’s one of the best things on TV.”
You can’t say fairer than that.
