The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 14]
Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365
Sean [Sycorax leader] is now ready for his big confrontation with the Doctor. “Under all this latex,” he reminds David, “I’m an extremely sexy, gorgeous, attractive, blue-eyed blonde.”
Yeah, right, that’s what all the Sycorax say.
“It seems like ages since I’ve said any lines,” David laughs. “It’s been like a week! And some people say actors have an easy life…”
——- And how does he like spending virtually the whole episode in pyjamas?
“It’s fantastic on a day like this,” he laughs. “The caves were quite cold, but I had my dressing gown, which is very warm. I mean, if it had been bucketing with rain today, I would have been fantastically miserable, obviously, cos these are fairly sheer pyjamas, but it’s worked out all right. It’s boiling. Next to poor old Sean, who’s wrapped under a latex duvet from dawn till dusk, with horrible contact lenses irritating the heck out of him, I’ve got away quite lightly, I think.”
