Doctor Who writer Neil Gaiman has given readers of his blog a sneak peak at a few lines of cut dialogue from the episode he is writing for Series 6 – set for a read-through in the next few days!
He estimates that he’s currently up to draft ten, and the amusing passage below has been cut since draft six.
Is it something people can eat?
Shouldnâ€™t you scan it with your screwdriver or something?
Why would I scan food with my screwdriver?
See if itâ€™s safe?
The Doctor leans over, dips his finger into his bowl, tastes it.
Some unusual trace elements, smidge too much background radiation, but, yeah, very yummy.
Amy is about to try some of his food… he stops her.
THE DOCTOR (contâ€™d)
No. Donâ€™t put it in your mouth.
Not for humans?
Not for you. Tastes like Marmite on socks.
