Behind the scenes of The Waters of Mars (Part Eight)
Excerpts from the podcast commentary with David Tennant, Russell T Davies, and Julie Gardner
RTD: Do you know what? This is probably our last commentary together, us three. JG: It is! DT: Ooooohhhh RTD: Because hopefully there will be commentaries in some shape or form for the last two episodes on various formats, but us three won’t get to be together again! DT: We’re all in different countries these days. JG: Surely in twenty years time we’ll be wheeled out in our bath chairs to… DT: To tell the truth! RTD: [laughs] JG: Yeah, exactly DT: To give the real commentary JG: To dish the dirt. DT: …talk about who we hated RTD: My nights with Yuri DT & JG: [laughs] JG: That sounds like your autobiography [more laughing] RTD: Oh dear. That brings me down to Earth. We will be doing commentaries DT: Do you think we will? RTD: Yes! DT: Will there be commentaries in 20 years time? Or will you just have something downloaded into your head RTD: Actually we’ll appear on screen directly! We’ll actually be like holograms on screen. JG: Holograms in our bath chairs RTD: No - holograms will make us look young and beautiful, surely, otherwise what’s the point DT: We can be CGI’ed.
[…] RTD [during the scene where the Doctor chooses to save the crew]: This is our last commentary together and you are just so amazing! JG: Magnificent RTD: When you take something and.. you’re going berserk, and I think it’s such a brilliant performance, I can’t begin to tell you. DT: Well, it’s because it’s there. It’s in the writing. That’s what you do. RTD: I only said that so you’d pay the compliment back DT & RTD: [hearty laughs] DT: That was Phil Ford’s bit, I’m sure. [Phil Ford is the co-writer of this episode] RTD: But it’s phenomenal. It’s simply phenomenal.
I know that it was offered once before, but I felt that I still had something to learn in patrol. And I’m glad that I stayed, yeah. But if the opportunity ever presented itself again I… I just want you to know that it would be the best decison that you ever made. To have me be a part of your unity. That’s all.
They say the FAKEs were the ones who tore down Los Santos and built it from scratch. No one knows where they came from. No one knows their plans. If you ask me, they’re all a bunch of lunatics. Why? They act like it’s all just a game.
Fahc where Lindsay is sitting with the crew in the penthouse and she’s like “oh damn I need to order pizza my crew is coming over”
And Geoff is like “but we’re your crew”
And Lindsay is like “ I work here”
And then all the ladies show up and the fahc is like wtf this is too many pretty ladies I’m die????
And the ladies take Jack and go rob four banks successfully and Geoff cries
