The Goof-off Complex

This just in from BBC America – Inside Doctor Who clip number five!

Entitled “On the Set,” this latest installment in BBC America’s series of Doctor Who behind-the-scenes promotional segments depicts Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill having the time of their lives doing anything in front of the camera except actually filming their scenes, with commentary from producers Beth Willis, Piers Wenger, Steven Moffat, Marcus Wilson, and others.  Judging from the set’s hotel-like corridors, there’s a very high probability that the majority of the video below was recorded during production of Toby Whithouse’s episode The God Complex, which we won’t be seeing until autumn.

Frankly we can’t help but notice that Karen Gillan, like David Tennant before her, is a Scot who can pull off a fairly decent English accent, but not such a fantastic American one. No harm done though, because like fangirls watching the Tenth Doctor, the male Kasterborites among us still can’t get enough of her!

Doctor Who will be back again in TWO DAYS (Saturday) at 6PM on BBC One, 9/8 central on BBC America, and 8/7 central on Space!

    I think her US accent sounds OK here, in the, what, 3 words she says! And that other clip where they had to read Tweets in US accents doesn’t really count because it was just a bit of silly. If you watch her on The Kevin Bishop Show her US accent is pretty clean, such as during her send-up of Angelina Jolie.

    I remember seeing this during the commercial breaks for The Impossible Astronaut on BBC America. It’s kind of frustrating catching glimpses of what later episodes will look like, and knowing we won’t get to see them until Fall. Darn split season…

    • Aye, I saw it then too, and then I completely forgot about it until Christian sent it to me yesterday ;)
