30 Days of Doctor Who
Day twenty-nine: Who is your favorite Time Lord other than the Doctor? The Rani? The Master?
↳ The Master
It’s an interesting one, how powerful that flirting thing is. David Tennant was a magnificent, brilliant, flirty, sexy Doctor, and when Matt came in to do it, he decided that he would be rubbish at flirting, doing this [flailing his arms] every time he gets a kiss – if you look, every time he does it, it’s a disaster, it never works, he flails like that – the only time he manages it successfully, he realises River isn’t actually in the room. So we haven’t had a properly flirtatious Doctor for years really. The idea had peaked and gone away, but my God, it worked in its time and Doctor Who’s a lot richer for that scene between Billie Piper and David Tennant on the beach in Doomsday. You keep changing.
However, it’s got to be said for those of you who actually have pored over the classic series, flirting did not begin in 2005! Watch Patrick Troughton in the first episode of The Enemy Of The World, he’s practically climbing over her! [Laughter] And actually, William Hartnell flirting with Barbara is disgusting, every time Ian Chesterton says something, it’s ‘You’re an idiot’, Barbara says something, it’s ‘You’re fantastic’. It’s the beginning of that story! The old fraud.
I think that was inflated in the article into something that it never was. I don’t recall having this conversation with Steven, but I can remember in my own head thinking that Papa and Nicole would be a dangerous route to take.
Peter doesn’t need advice, he’s a rock star, look at him!
