The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 11]

Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365

[Benjamin Cook asking David Christmas-themed questions]

BC: Which gift from ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ would you most like to receive this year?

DT: If the pipers piping were Billie Pipers, then obviously I’d go for that. But that would be quite creepy. It’s got to be ladies dancing, hasn’t it? I mean, there’s not really much contest. Five golden rings you could flog, if they were really nice. But I don’t think you’d get much for them.

BC: If there were five of them, they’re unlikely to be top-notch quality.

DT: Well thought through. I mean, all the others would just be irritating, frankly. And dirty. Colley birds? French hens? Yes, you could eat them, but then you’d have to murder them yourself. I don’t want to do that at Christmas. That’s far too much effort. I want a shrink-wrapped turkey from Sainsbury’s. No, ladies dancing - much better. They can come and dance in my Christmas parlour.

BC: What’s the worst Christmas record of all time?

DT: Ooh jings. No, there’ve got to be some terrible ones, haven’t there? Well, anything by Cliff Richard. Mistletoe and Wine? It’s got to be Mistletoe and Wine. That is a heinous piece of work, isn’t it? My mum likes it. She likes everything by Cliff Richard. But she is wrong! It’s saccharine, and repulsive, and when all those kids start singing at the end, you just want to murder. It’s horrible.

Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel - Behind the Scenes (Part Five)

From the DVD commentary with Noel Clarke (Mickey Smith), Camille Coduri (Jackie Tyler), and Shaun Dingwall (Pete Tyler)

[Filming the scene where Mickey & Ricky split off from the group]

Noel: Do you remember here?  Billie was laughing because I kissed her so hard I nearly head butted her.  Do you remember?

[Camille and Shaun laughing]

Shaun: I do.

Noel: Mickey gives her the kiss and runs off… I remember her laughing because it was a real hard kiss, so she was like, ‘You nearly knocked my teeth out!’

[Filming Mickey’s goodbye to Rose at the end of the episode]

Noel: I think they should have had a snog here, man

Camille: Oh, you would!  This is a very emotional bit.

Noel: Of course it is, but he’s not had a proper kiss from her.

Shaun: Hasn’t he?  Ever?  In the whole time…

Noel: Not in this series, no.  Obviously he has, but not on-screen in this series, no.

Shaun:  Really? What about in the first series?

Noel: No

Shaun: He didn’t get a snog in that either?

Noel: No. Just various pecks and smooches but not a full-on…

Shaun: You’ll want to have a word with your agent.

“You Are Proof…” 

“…That emotions destroy you.” 

“Ya…I am.” 

I love this line reading so much. He’s so resigned about it all–he absolutely owns it, which further drives home the point that his pain is part of his power and part of what keeps him fighting. There’s such optimism in the way he says it, even though he’s admitting to having been destroyed emotionally. Something so poignant and human and Whovian about that–pain is what helps shape us, but it does not stop us or make us relinquish hope. 

“You Can Shut Up” 

Get the Doctor going on multi-dimensional physics and he can talk forever. But bring up affairs of the heart and he readily acknowledges he’s way out of his depth. I love the way he sort of salutes… “Right…I’m shutting up now…”

“I L…”

So much is made of 10 never finishing the phrase that begins “Rose Tyler…”, but I quite like that it takes Rose a moment to say those words too. It somehow shows us how much it effort and energy she needs to say them out loud. I’m not the biggest of TenRose shippers personally, but I feel this scene is beautifully acted and appropriately crushing. Definite tears the first time I saw it.
