Noel Clarke on Rose’s decision to travel with the Doctor
Doctor Who Confidential 1x04 - I Get a Side-Kick Out of You
It’s become a common thread in recent Doctor Who episodes to emphasize the extent to which the appearance of a time-traveling eccentric in an inter-dimensional phone box tends to play havoc with a human’s sense of self. Davros taunts the Doctor about this in Journey’s End, mocking him for turning ordinary people into killers, while affecting a morality about holding a gun.
But if you were to sit with the Doctor, and go through the effect his arrival had on all of his companions, Mickey Smith is the one he should feel no guilt about whatsoever. OK, he stole the man’s girlfriend, but if we can take anything away from Mickey’s experience meeting his parallel world doppelganger Ricky Smith, it’s that the soldier was always within him, waiting to come out….
Brit actor-director Noel Clarke, who had a recurring role on the BBC’s hit series “Doctor Who,” has been cast in J.J. Abrams’ Paramount tentpole “Star Trek 2.”
He joins franchise newcomers Alice Eve and Peter Weller in the sci-fi sequel, which is scheduled for release on May 17, 2013. Paramount had no comment on the casting.
While the details of Clarke’s role are being kept under wraps, he will play a family man with a wife and young daughter.
Happy Birthday Noel Clarke!
