A line from the set of Doctor Who

August 28th, 2009 (08:07 pm)

One of the most dedicated production-followers, Alun Vega, has made this recording available. Don't follow this if you are averse to knowing anything about the next series, as not only does it reveal the identity of a returning alien race, but also something of how Matt Smith will deliver his lines as the Doctor.

... I think he's modelling his delivery on William Shatner.

(And: I know it was inevitable, but do we have to have them back again?)

I think he sounds like a young Troughton, when at his most petulant or despairing.

I think a certain author's estate have to be kept happy...

One suggestion at Gallifrey Base is that he is spelling out the name on a blackboard to amnesiac Daleks. He does sound very young, as if we are indeed going to see a boy Doctor uncomfortable in his skin.

All these fuzzy clips and hypothesised contexts... its like listening to n-th generation off-air recordings from the 60s and imagining what the visuals would have been like. Except we don't have to wait for chance discoveries in a Hong Kong TV archive to find out.
