Doctor Who companion Arthur Darvill – Rory Williams (“Mr Pond”) in the show – features in an online interview in which he discusses the seasonal episode, A Christmas Carol.
Some highlights of the chat include Darvill’s feelings about working with Harry Potter wizard Sir Michael Gambon (A Christmas Carol‘s Kazran Sardick), as well as the fact that he is part of the first married couple in the TARDIS!
“Michael’s brilliant. He’s just been acting for so long that you can’t help but be slightly in awe of him. But it’s surprising, because he’s so invested as an actor, but he’s also a lot of fun. Once you get over those initial nerves, he’s hilarious. He’s just a joy to be in the same room with.”
“It’s really cool to be a married couple in the Tardis. It’s obviously something that’s never been done before, and it’s not just any old married couple! It’s still Amy and Rory, but they’ve both been through so much.
“I think Amy and Rory have grown up a bit and they’re both a bit more used to being in perilous situations. I think it’s going to be an interesting dynamic.”
There’s much more in the full interview on Digital Spy.
Meanwhile, in case you just landed here in the UK, the 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol, airs Saturday, December 25th, Christmas Day, at 6pm on BBC One and BBC HD!
