Speaking to Newsarama Darvill re-emphasised just how when called upon Rory can make that crucial difference – it’s Rory, the super-sub!
“I think they’ve got, you know, a very, very strong relationship, and as much as Rory can be a bumbling idiot at times, I think he’s proved to the Doctor and to everyone else around that, when everything starts kicking off [he] can really step up to the plate and deliver.”
The Peter Crouch of the TARDIS believes that the three lead’s in this half of the season in particular have really upped there game.
He also added that he could perhaps one day see the gaffer reunite all the companions however his idea of what would make scintillating Saturday night TV differs slightly from the rest of us:
“I mean maybe it would be some kind of strange self-help group to get over [it] and everything with the Doctor. Yes maybe that would be a good episode, just all of the past companions in therapy.”
Doctor Who continues this Saturday with The God Complex on BBC One in the UK and BBC America in (that’s right!) America.
