‘Doctor Who’ season 8 spoilers: Matt Smith, David Tennant talk 50th anniversary filmingMay 18, 2013
There are a number of remarkable things that you could say about the “Doctor Who” fan base, including their imagination, devotion, or simply willingness to watch a show on Saturday when they could be off doing a number of other things (especially when the weather is warming up.) However, one of the greatest things that the cast has ever done took place this week, when many of them banded together in an effort to preserve something that is very sacred: What happened in the season finale.
You see, the episode was leaked in some parts of America accidentally, but the folks over at BBC promised a present to those who were informed as a way of keeping the conclusion of the story under wraps. It worked for the most part, and thus, we have a lovely new video below of David Tennant and Matt Smith talking about their work on the upcoming 50 anniversary special for the show that is airing later this year.
In the video, the two talk about some of what makes the experience of playing The Doctor so remarkable. You are a part of a rather specific and unique fraternity, and there is only a select few out there who can really begin to understand what you go through while playing the character. It can be an incredible opportunity, but like with anything else, there is also a downside and some other struggles that you have to deal with (which we’re sure include not being able to really ever sit down for dinner in public).
Tennant and Smith are just two of the Doctors who will be returning for this special, which we consider to be a love letter already without even seeing it. There could also be an additional, previously-unknown Doctor joining the fray. To read more on that, just be sure to check out our article over here.
