Doctor Who “The Doctor’s Wife” Suranne Jones & Neil Gaiman Interviews - SFX
Does Doctor Who demand a particular acting style? 
“I’ve been told I was good at shakey-shakey acting. And I didn’t know  I was doing shakey-shakey acting. Matt was particularly impressed with  my shakey-shakey. He was like, ‘Yeah, man, that’s really good!’ Karen’s  really good at windy-windy acting. There’s lots of wind involved in Doctor Who,  isn’t there? Lots of things happen and they put a wind machine on you.  All the scary stuff is like second nature to them. I think you’ve got to  be fearless. If it’s greenscreen and you can’t actually see what you’re  acting with, or you’re imagining that you’re being chased, to be  fearless is the best thing, because if you do it half-hearted, then it  just looks a bit wet.”
