I loved the character of Rose; the fact that she was a girl who went from a small, domestic life to experiencing time travel with this strange guy. She was both strong-willed and vulnerable. I think that’s a really healthy representation of women. Instead of showing a female character endlessly striving towards perfection, here we saw a range of genuine female reactions. The show seemed to say, it’s OK to cry, it’s OK to question yourself, and it’s OK to be excited about someone else coming up with a great idea.

John Hurt: I thought Doctor Who fans would be loonies but they’re charming

via The Guardian:

You’re in Hungary shooting the $150m film Hercules: The Thracian Wars with Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson. Do you enjoy doing blockbusters?

Well, it used to mean that you got terrifically well paid, but it doesn’t mean that any more. Nobody gets terrifically well paid any more, except perhaps the star. But I have nothing against it. You know what you let yourself in for in these things. I can’t say that I wouldn’t prefer to make small films, basically because I think they are probably more interesting in terms of the material. But every now and again it’s quite good to do a big one.

How’s it going?

With a big film, it’s absolutely impossible to say… But of course we all sit around and have a good old moan. But what does an actor do when he gets given a nice part? He moans about it.

Your new film – More Than Honey, a documentary you narrate about the threat to bees – is at the other end of the scale in terms of size. Is it a subject you feel personally engaged with?

I do now. Like a lot of people, I didn’t realise the threat to bees worldwide and it had never occurred to me the importance of them. But it’s something mankind should be concerned about, because it’s very important for the planet. We do tend to behave so often in the most cavalier way.

David Tennant talks filming ‘Doctor Who’ 50th anniversary show: ‘It was everything I hoped’

via entertainment weekly:

On those rare occasions when current and past stars of Doctor Who filmed episodes together the air has sometimes turned a tad chilly. But “Tenth Doctor” David Tennant says there were no such problems when, earlier this year, he and his TARDIS successor Matt Smith shot this November’s special 50th anniversary show.

“I suppose you’d expect me to say we’re new best friends and I love him like a brother,” the Scottish actor tells EW. “But that is sort of how it was. I had a fantastic time and that wouldn’t necessarily have been the case. I’m coming back onto a show that’s effectively somebody else’s show and used to be mine and that’s potentially quite a weird situation to be in.”

WATCH: Moffat on Casting Peter Capaldi on ‘Doctor Who’ - Anglophenia

Standing in front of the stage where only minutes before Peter Capaldi had been revealed as the Twelfth Doctor, Moffat appeared amazingly relaxed considering the situation but also somewhat excited that he could finally talk about one of the most highly prized secrets of the year.

He revealed that Peter Capaldi was not a name he had expected to be thinking of following Matt Smith’s decision to give up the Tardis but one that he kept on coming back to. Moffat even consulted his Sherlock producing partner Mark Gatiss who affirmed his belief that Capaldi would have what it takes to step into television’s longest running science-fiction franchise.

Calling the man best known for his role as government spin doctor Malcolm Tucker “famously brilliant,” Moffat said he had everything that matters to take control of the TARDIS: “He’s got that look, he has those Doctor eyes.”
