Speaking after his two trophies at the National Television Awards last night, actor, writer, director and comedian Stephen Fry spoke of his eagerness to see Matt Smith in Doctor Who, as well as his own rumoured script for the series.
Fry – who appeared in the BBCi Doctor Who audio drama Death Comes to Time in 1999 – was the recipient of an award for both his series Stephen Fry in America and a special achievement award.
“I look forward so much to seeing Matt Smith and I’m sure he’s going to be wonderful. If I get time it’ll be a thrill, I can’t think of anything nicer.”
Stephen Fry had earlier been strongly rumoured to be writing an episode for the 2006 series, David Tennant’s first, however this failed to materialise.
“The window passed, and I never really got round to it,” said Fry. “But I’m very happy to have had the experience of thinking about it.”
Fry also revealed that his former comedy partner and good friend, House star Hugh Laurie, would be taking part in a 30th anniversary retrospective programme later this year. They also continue to hope to work together again as a comedy partnership.
