Speaking to the Daily Record Gillan revelled her desire to take to the stage as the manipulating partner of her desirous husband Macbeth- who in a Shakespeare 2 for 1 Matt Smith has offered to play alongside her.
“I want to be Lady Macbeth, it’s a role I have always wanted to play.
Matt, 28, added: “And I want to be Macbeth, so let’s do that. I’d quite like to do a play.”
There you go- not content with putting children through the wringer every Saturday night they now want to punish them further and make them sit through Macbeth like it’s a wet Wednesday afternoon in classroom 2E all over again.
It might be a small step on the way to regicide but Gillan also revelled she’s been practicing a little voodoo in her new flat:
“I have just moved into a new flat and have nothing to decorate it with other than a lot of Doctor Who merchandise. It’s really sad. I even have a knitted doll of Matt. Not in my bed. I don’t cuddle it to sleep. It’s in a box in a spare room and is not coming out. I stick pins in it.”
Precedent has been set for Who actors waxing their iambic pentameter- David Tennant and Catherine Tate can currently be seen in Josie Rourke’s production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.
