Actor John Hurt
, who older readers may remember starred in The Name of the Doctor
, has been talking to The Guardian
about his role in the Doctor Who
50th Anniversary Special and the fans.
Regarding his part in the upcoming special, Hurt stated: "Of course you have to remember that the Doctors are all one person,
so I'm not outside of that."
Talking about his fellow onscreen Doctors, the Alien actor added: "I can't talk about it, but I will say I was
really impressed when I did it. Both the previous doctors – Matt Smith
and David Tennant – boy, are they good at it. Whoa-wee! They are so
quick, and there's a huge amount of learning and no time to learn it in.
All that fake scientific nonsense. Terribly difficult to learn."
And when asked about the fans, Hurt commented: "I thought they'd all be loonies, but they
are absolutely, totally charming as anything. It's great fun. I'm not
saying it's the healthiest thing – I don't know whether it is or isn't –
but they are very charming."
