“I will eat my hat”
There’s some marvellous stuff online from the Doctor Who press launch last week outside of the usual mainstream media content (which we’ll come to soon) but one journalist in particular has excelled by transcribing the post The Eleventh Hour screening Q+A
Available on the blog of Ian Wylie, the transcription of the Q+A with Steven Moffat, new Doctor Matt Smith and companion Karen Gillan is an exhaustive affair, and by reading it now you’ll save yourself considerable work over the next few days reading newspapers and other sources.
With such a lot of material to read through, I’ll let you click on over there now, but if you’re not sure, this is how the Q+A ends:
Did you have any say in what your Doctor gets to wear? Is he part-librarian, part-member of JLS?
Matt: (laughing) â€œJLS?â€
Steven: â€œA popular beat combo.â€
Matt: â€œThe day you see JLS in a tweed jacket, I will eat my hat. Yes I did, I have a very active role in it and we went through various stages of development with that. Iâ€™m very pleased with that. It feels like part of my identity and it has to feel like part of your bodyâ€¦but what I will say about the costume is, I think this particular Doctorâ€™s costume will constantly evolve. And I think it will be varied.
