Heâ€™s the man who provides the voices for the Doctorâ€™s greatest enemies, the Daleks and the Cybermen â€“ and at long last, DWM has caught up with him for an in-depth interview! NICHOLAS BRIGGS tells all about his time as a Dalek, his life-long love of Doctor Who and just what he can do with his ring voice modulatorâ€¦
â€œItâ€™s great for people to be able to hear the voice on set,â€ he explains. â€œThe way I say my lines does change depending on how David, Chris, or Matt say their lines to me. The Daleks actually being there makes such a difference. Much of the time, the cast is acting against silver balls on sticks, in front of a green screen, but Daleks move around, flash their lights, speak like they want to kill you, like a voice from hellâ€¦â€
