Redgrave: 50th is “bloody brilliant!”
Although Redgrave has been appearing with Torchwood‘s Eve Myles in the new district nurse drama Frankie, she still had time to chat about the Doctor Who 50th anniversary…
I wasn’t even allowed to tell my children I was actually in it for about four or five weeks! Once we filmed in Trafalgar Square I knew it would be impossible to keep that under wraps! But what do you do? I was going to work and not being able to tell anyone what I was doing! It was like joining bloody MI6!
What I can tell you is that it’s absolutely bloody brilliant! I think it’s an astonishing script. Stephen Moffat is an outrageously good writer and as always with Doctor Who, it’s philosophical, it’s deep, it’s an adventure story and if you’re a kid, you’re going to be taken on an extraordinary ride. It raises all sorts of interesting questions for anyone who wants to go deeper with it. It’s funny and then on a sixpence it breaks your heart. It’s just wonderful!
It might seem a long way off now, but just you watch – November will be here in a jiffy…
