October’s issue of Gay Times is out soon, and features Arthur Darvill on the cover and in an exclusive interview with the magazine.
It turns out that this is Arthur’s first proper fashion shoot and he gives GT exclusive highlights of his series finale and what lies ahead for the never-ending Rory…
Arthur spills on working with the Daleks:
“It feels right, it’s really easy to forget that you’re doing Doctor Who, because you’re just kind of doing it, but then I turn up to work and there’s loads of Daleks everywhere. It’s like, oh, right, this is what I imagined it would be like. I’ve had quite a few where I’ve started talking to them and you realise there’s not actually anyone in it, I’m just talking to a piece of plastic…”
On leaving Doctor Who at the same time as co-star Karen Gillan:
“I think the worst thing to do would be to outstay your welcome on a thing like this. We were both very keen to do a really good chunk of time on it and get the best out of it that we could. We’re pushing it to a peak and then we’ll leave it there.”
“It’s amazing, when we were discussing how we were leaving, Steven [Moffat, producer and head honcho] just said, “you’re going to go out on a bang.” And it’s more than that, it’s brilliant. The last scene we did properly was – it was really nice actually – it was the three of us going into the TARDIS at the end of an episode.”
This is just a hint of the full interview, which can be found in the October issue of GT which is on sale Wednesday 5 September and available to download digitally from the App Store and Android Market/Google Play.
