DWM420_COVERS.jpg ? In Stock £2.99

Matt Smith and Karen Gillan reveal all about playing the Doctor and Amy.

 

In DWM’s in-depth interviews, Matt talks about how the Doctor’s costume may evolve, the nicknames that he and Karen have for each other and playing football with James Corden for a scene in Episode 11: “This has made my list of Top Five Shooting Days! Pushing Top Three! There were no aliens, no Daleks, nothing. We were just playing football. Then again, I suppose there was a big time loop...”

 

Karen, meanwhile, tells us about Amy’s complicated relationship with the Doctor and Amy’s boyfriend Rory, what she thinks about wearing surprisingly short skirts, and her approach to playing the role of the Doctor’s new best friend: “Amy should never take anything for granted – she doesn’t know she’s the companion and she’s not familiar with the set-up that the Doctor has a female companion. So this is all brand-new to her and I have to keep reminding myself of that. As far as she knows, she’s the first companion… ever!”

 

Also in DWM 420:

Among the Doctor Who luminaries DWM chats to is former producer PHIL COLLINSON, now in charge at Coronation Street. But which one does Phil prefer...?

 

“Oh, blimey!” says Phil. “I love both of them, although they sort of share the same place in my memories. Both you can sit and watch with the whole family. I remember watching Corrie with my grandmother when I was a little boy. It was the sort of thing everybody had a view on and talked about. In the same way they did with Doctor Who. Although with Corrie, characters like Ena Sharples and Elsie Tanner were almost friends of my grandmother. My mum and she would talk about them as if they were real – what Elsie’s been up to and ‘what about that husband?’ Somehow they were tangible. And I suppose that’s been the main difference between the two shows. Doctor Who’s a fairytale about a world you’d like to disappear to, and Coronation Street is the world you’re in.”
