David Morrissey on Doctor Who

Speaking to the Radio Times, David Morrissey has revealed one or two things about filming a Christmas Doctor Who, and how he would feel about being cast in the role…

While the presence of classic foes the Cybermen in The Next Doctor raised his game, Morrissey is uncomfortable acting against nothing

“The difficulty for me is green screen – trying to create a relationship with something that isn’t there," Morrissey told the Radio Times about the devices, which are used as a means to add computer generated effects in post-production.

"It’s just a man holding a scaffolding pole with a tennis ball on the end… it’s a weird process."

It would have been a missed opportunity for the Radio Times not to ask David Morrissey about playing the Doctor one day.

So it is just as well that the interviewer was on the ball, and asked David Tennant’s Christmas co-star if he would return to the show – perhaps as the Doctor?

"I’ve had a great time… If they asked me back I’d jump at it, I think it’s a great character and I’ve loved every minute."

"As for any talk of me taking over as the next Doctor, well, if or when they do choose someone, they would have to be totally different to David – which I am."

Hmmm… hasn’t the part been cast already?
