Seismic High Stakes in Series 6
Ah memories, like Barbara Streisand once bellowed, are like the corners of our mind (though I think my mind is in fact an oblong, so there, Ms Streisand) and Matt Smith has been sweeping the skirting board of his mind corners, sharing some of his favourite and in yet more wobbly time nonsense will soon be our favourites too.
Matt revealed in his humble opinion that Series 6â€™s new big bad will be one of the scariest:
“I think The Silence are one of the greatest monsters of recent years and certainly one of the scariest. They’re also very clever and I love the fact they’ve been silently working since the dawn of time to make the Doctor come unstuck.”
And with new monsters comes difficult decisions not just for the Doctor but everyone onboard the good ship TARDIS.
“Every character is faced with the most seismic and high-stakes choices we’ve seen so far.”
But before the going gets dark thereâ€™s the little matter of the Doctor Who teams first foray across the Atlantic to film the 60â€™s set two parter.
Despite being relatively isolated out in the desert of Utah it didnâ€™t stop one Doctor Who fan from tracking down Matt on location:
“It was very strange. We were in the middle of the desert and suddenly there was a lady with a campervan and deck chair, holding an iPad up with a moving screen which read ‘autograph please!’ I mean how on earth she knew we were in the middle of the desert I have no idea, but it certainly proved her dedication to the show!â€
