While we don’t expect The Jonathan Ross Show to raise £15 million or draw a maximum of 12 million viewers, it will certainly be worth watching for a more substantial Matt Smith appearance than was available for yesterday’s Comic Relief event.
But let’s forget about fundraising with “comedy” and turn our attention to Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary. Although on the show to promote Series 7b, naturally conversation turned towards the big event in November – the 3D special. Says Matt:
It will be undoubtedly the biggest and the best. And it will be one of the most exciting years for the show. With 3D, Steven (Moffat) is so clever. He doesn’t just throw things at the screen, I’d get bored then.
I have read the script and Steven is on fine form. It won’t disappoint.
In terms of clues, Matt was suitably diplomatic.
You might see London. The thing is with Who, you will understand it more when you have seen it, but ‘paintings’ – that is all I am saying. Steven is gonna whup me tomorrow.
We’re pretty sure that at this stage, a single word clue isn’t going to inspire anyone into GBH, Matt.
TV presenter, comedian and comic book writer Ross – also a Doctor Who fan – joked about rumours of some “big musical numbers” in the special. Matt replied:
I think Doctor Who the musical would be belting by the way. It would be great. I can hold a tune.
Airing at 9.20pm this evening, you’ll be able to tune into The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV.
