Matt: “Tell me about the Zarbi.”

On Monday, Matt Smith spoke to BBC Radio 2’s Steve Wright to promote the new Doctor Who Series 7: Part 1 DVD and Blu-ray.

Though it’s not an exceptionally extensive interview, and some pretty silly question are asked, it’s worth a listen, particularly as Smith comes up with some gems like:

I guess flying for a Dalek is like sprinting for a human.

There are precious few spoilers revealed – well, okay, nothing is even potentially spoilerific, but Matt does say of the Christmas special:

It’s set in Victorian England, we meet a Doctor who’s been profoundly changed… from losing the Ponds – and into his life walks Jenna-Louise Coleman’s character and off they go on new adventures.

He also jokes that:

Any Yale key opens the TARDIS.

… Which was actually the thought of former showrunner, Russell T. Davies, who wanted children to feel like any key they pick up could open up all of time and space.

Matt always appreciates the incredible intellect of The Man In Charge, Steven Moffat, and he talks about the first episode of Series 7, Part 2:

There’s a moment in it that involves wheels – and that is an exclusive… And when you watch it, you’ll go, ‘ahh, that’s [Steven] being brilliant.’

Okay, so it’s a nice little interview, but Matt’s keeping ever candid. It’s not his first barbeque.

When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' former Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything. He is the co-founder of The Doctor Who Companion: http://thedoctorwhocompanion.com/
