'Doctor Who's Day Roundup: Who's 'Who'? Who Isn't! - Anglophenia

via Anglophenia:

The stretch of time between the announcement of a retiring Doctor Who actor and that of their replacement is a fevered one indeed. Every possible human entertainer with a face is examined by fans as a potential new Time Lord, then given the imaginary walkaround and twirlabout in a fanciful frock coat, and set to virtually run down a make-believe metal corridor to see if they leave the right kind of Gallifreyan chaos in their wake.

That’s what the past week has been like. Some truly bizarre names have already been thrown out there, including Tom Cruise and Simon Cowell. Then, over the weekend, two rumors erupted over the internet, the first claiming it was a three-way tie between Domhnall GleesonDaniel Kaluuya and Dominic Cooper, the second claiming Rory Kinnear had definitely got the job.

Samuel West threw his hat into the ring, claiming he had always wanted to play the Doctor, “and Hamlet. And I’ve done Hamlet.”

Radio Times had a poll, which Colin Morgan won.

And Neil Gaiman has expressed a wish that the next Doctor should not be an actor we’re already familiar with.

Meanwhile, Steven Moffat is quoted in the Radio Times as saying, “I haven’t a clue who it is, we’ve barely started.”

Doctor Who has never pretended to be hard science fiction … At best Doctor Who is a fairytale, with fairytale logic about this wonderful man in this big blue box who at the beginning of every story lands somewhere where there is a problem. - neil gaiman

Neil Gaiman reveals the process behind the return of the Cybermen in Nightmare in Silver. - Doctor Who Series 7 Part 2 (2013)

I haven’t done [a Doctor Who] episode set on Earth yet, and I haven’t created a new monster. And there’s part of me that feels… I haven’t scared anybody yet… The Cybermen have a few little scary bits but it’s running at about a 5 of 6. I’d love to a 9. I’d love to do something that sends adults behind the sofa too and makes them wee. Pools of wee.

Neil Gaiman on re-writing Doctor Who: Clara was originally going to stay as a Victorian governess. Radio Times
"The original companion was going to be very much the Victorian governess we saw at Christmas," Doctor Who writer Neil Gaiman told Radio Times, while discussing the genesis of his most recent story, Cybermen vehicle Nightmare in Silver.
“Doctor Who has its own peculiar way of being written, so I started writing it about 14 months ago. I wrote about the first ten pages and then they said they’d changed the companion from what I was expecting to something else.
"We decided they can do more weird stuff if it’s now the contemporary third incarnation so I had to reshape it so it wasn’t the governess."

Behind the Scenes of Nightmare in Silver - Doctor Who Series 7 Part 2 (2013)

In 2011, Neil Gaiman wowed everyone with his first Doctor Who episode, The Doctor’s Wife, one of the most popular shows we’ve ever made. It was a long old battle, that one, and I slightly worried the great man might not be up for another go. I should have known better. I only had to whisper “Cybermen” and he was falling back through the door. As ever, he doesn’t give you quite what you’re expecting — or quite what he’s expecting. But then, wouldn’t you be disappointed if he did?

As I type, I’m watching one of the effects shots for this show — a realisation of one of Neil’s creepiest ideas ever. It’s good to know what you’ll all be having nightmares about very, very soon!
