Darvill: “I feel privileged”

How could anyone hate Arthur Darvill? Not only does he play the completely besotted Rory with brilliant panache but he also feels ‘privileged’ to do so.

Doctor Who's Arthur DarvillSpeaking to TV Choice, Darvill explained that he is pleased with the storyline he’s been given.

“I feel privileged every day,” he said. “I think Steven Moffat has written such a brilliant storyline for Rory. I was really excited every time you opened the script, because you never know what’s going to happen.”

Darvill also teased about just what happens to Rory, who was last seen amongst the gang of human captors holding Silurian Alaya, who chillingly foretold of her possible murder in The Hungry Earth.

“I do think it works really well. It’s so different to what’s come before. I wish I could tell you what happens, but I really can’t!”

Darvill also appeared on BBC Breakfast yesterday discussing taking on the role, Rory showing his metal and Matt Smith showing him around the TARDIS during his audition – see it on YouTube.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
