'Doctor Who' writer Toby Whithouse: 'Ben Browder is fantastic'
SFX has an interview with Toby Whithouse about next weekend’s episode, ‘A Town Called Mercy’:

He was fantastic. I was really, really pleased that we got him because it’s an odd part, that character Isaac, and you need somebody who has… Ben has this rather beautiful innate nobility that he manages to just convey, very simply and very economically. It was absolutely how I saw the character, so I was really thrilled with him, and delighted with his performance.

In terms of the series as a whole I know, there are quite a few things I know. I know some plans for the new companion and that kind of thing. The one downside of working on Doctor Who is that you know what’s coming up. I knew who River Song was months and months and months before most other people, and it was great. Doctor Who is not necessarily a job I need to do because Being Human keeps me very busy, but I love it.

‘Doctor Who’ Panel Ends a Jam-Packed Comic-Con Weekend 

It all started with the chanting. Then the clapping and stomping. Next the sonic screwdrivers were raised high into the air, their squiggly squeaks resounding throughout Hall H, which was filled to its 6,500-seat capacity.
In the back of the room, you could see young Nick Pickett, founder and president of his Doctor Who club at Marshall Middle School in San Diego, standing proudly alongside the more than six-feet tall orange Dalek that his schoolmates helped to build. Costumes included TARDISes of all colors, a gallery of Doctors since 1963, and more. It was a gigantic party, pep rally, and media event all wrapped into one.
Stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan were joined by writer Toby Whithouse and executive producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis for the Doctor Who panel at San Diego Comic-Con. BBC America unveiled a brand-new trailer, which went over gangbusters, as well as an premiere date for the fall season (August 27) and a sneak peek at Toby’s upcoming episode, “The God Complex.” (Which looks amazingly wacky, with hotel interiors, fish bowls, hair dryers, and people being tied up.)
