So in this interview on The Krotons DVD, Frazer Hines tells how he once snuck into the studio during the lunch hour and got inside one of the Daleks just to roll around in it and play pretend.

Then he heard somebody come in and he froze so he wouldn’t get told off, and it was two actors who leaned on the Dalek he was in and started bad-mouthing the show. (Not knowing he was in there.)

Partway through their conversation, Frazer rolled away going “I HEARD THAT. I’M TELLING.” in a Dalek voice.

“In the scene where the group are at the main entrance of the tomb, Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines worked out in secret, without the knowledge of director Morris Barry, the brief sequence where both the Doctor and Jamie go to take Victoria by the hand and end up taking each others, in the knowledge that, with the recording schedule and the likelihood that re-takes would not be possible, it would have to be left in.”

That is pretty damn fantastic.


Well, I happened to see a “Dr. Who” rerun in a weak-minded moment, and was taken by a minor character—a young Scotsman from 1745, who appeared in his kilt.** “Well, that’s fetching,” I said. “Yeah, why not?  Scotland, eighteenth century.” So that’s where I began, knowing nothing about Scotland or the eighteenth century, with no plot, no outline, no characters—nothing but the rather vague images conjured up by a man in a kilt (which is, of course, a very powerful and compelling image). x

Fazer Hines, who played Jamie McCrimmon (the inspiration for Jamie Fraser) in Doctor Who, as Sir Fletcher Gordon in Outlander 1x15 x x x x 


30 days of Doctor Who

Day thirteen: Who would be your ideal Team TARDIS?
Oh Dear Lord…Do I have to pick just one team?  aww…alright…my runners up would have been Sarah Jane and the 8th Doctor…I just think they would have been great together but…

The Team I’d love to see the most would be: 11, Jamie, and Zoe. It would be like the 2nd Doctor era but just…wow haha…
