Speculation about John Hurt’s role in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary has been rife across the web since his casting was announced. Could a recent comment have confirmed at least one of those rumours or theories?
Speaking to the Eastern Daily Press at an event at Sheringham Little Theatre, Hurt revealed something of the nature of his character…
Mr Hurt, who lives near Cromer, earlier told the EDP he had just finished shooting a Dr Who 3D special in which he plays “part of the Doctor” in a “kind of trinity” which includes David Tennant.
We naturally wouldn’t want anyone to get too excited/dismayed about this (that disclaimer’s an indication of the general mood of fandom if ever I saw one…) but it makes for very interesting reading.
