Arthur Darvill Emotional Watching Exit

Joining the nation for a collective weep was Arthur Darvill who “got quite emotional” watching his Doctor Who exit.

Darvill told Digital Spy that it had been a ‘strange feeling’ leaving the show:

It was in the back of our minds for a while that it was going to be on, but yeah, I got quite emotional actually. I didn’t think I would – I thought I would have been like, ‘Okay, that was good’, and that would be that!

Arthur, who played devoted husband Rory Williams, joined the 7.82 million viewers who tuned in to watch his tear-jerking departure at the climax of The Angels take Manhattan.

Overall, he was pleased with the response the episode garnered:

I saw Steven Moffat and Matt Smith the other night and we had a big old chat about it, which was good. But yeah, it’s a strange feeling; it’s a really strange feeling. I think it’s gone down really well.

Despite his departure, Darvill is looking forward to seeing new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman in action:

I’m excited to see the next series coming up and not know what’s happening. I can actually watch it as a viewer.

Arthur Darvill stars in episode five of The Paradise tomorrow night (Tuesday, October 23) at 9pm on BBC One.


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
