Who is Ashley Walters?

Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS?

How’s that for an exciting, spoiler-filled episode title? Don’t point the finger, this is merely a suggestion by the Radio Times as part of their interview with So Solid Crew’s “Asher D” Ashley Walters, who appears in the episode.

Who is Ashley Walters?

Walters – who also starred in the True Love series alongside David Tennant, Billie Piper and David Morrissey earlier this year – confessed in September that he had already said too much and that  the “Doctor Who police” were onto him.

Speaking to RadioTimes.com, Walters recalled the incident.

“I nearly got sacked on my first day because they’re really strict about it. I was in my costume lying down on the sofa and I just tweeted a photo with the word ‘space’ – I didn’t say anything else. Five minutes later I had execs knocking on my door saying, ‘what are you doing?’ And then I realised there were signs everywhere saying ‘don’t tweet’.”

Most importantly, of course, is the headline. What’s going on? Is it even an episode title at all (and let’s face it, it’s as slutty as the Moff claims to like them)?

“You can’t beat being in Doctor Who – it’s something I’ve grown up with my whole life and working with Matt Smith was amazing. He’s a really, really good actor and just being a part of that huge BBC franchise was an incredible thing. And Jenna Louise Coleman is really good at what she does – it seems like she’s enjoying her job and I loved working with her.

“…in our episode it’ll be the first time people get to see so much of the Tardis [SIC].”

Could it be the moment that we’ve been waiting for since Rose (or arguably The Doctor’s Wife)? And just why is a former rapper wandering so deeply into the TARDIS with the Doctor and a companion that no one can quite get their head around yet?

Perplexing, isn’t it…?
