In a recent interview with SFX Davis – who made his screen debut as Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi – spoke of his childhood fear of the Cybermen (he appears in the Neil Gaiman episode) and likened landing the role in the show to ‘hitting the jackpot’:
I mean, it was an exciting moment to come face-to-face with one of those dudes. Seriously, it was a great thrill. I mean, it was a great thrill to be in Doctor Who. A career ambition. But to be in an episode written by Neil and to have Cybermen in it, was for me the jackpot.
