Behind the Scenes of Army of Ghosts/Doomsday (Part 5)
Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article in DWM #372

Are Daleks difficult to work with?

“Not at all,” insists the Doctor himself, David Tennant.  “The guys who operate them are so good at it, they whizz around, and there’s a beautiful bit - I don’t know if it’ll make the final cut - where they do a little… it’s almost like a dance, when they go around the Genesis Ark, in perfect harmony.  They seemed to have total control. It’s fantastic, especially when you get Nick Briggs [who voices both the Daleks and the Cybermen] barking at you, and it’s all happening live. The great thing about working with the Daleks is that it’s all created in the studio - the monsters, and the monster voices, aren’t added in afterwards - so you’re not having to make any imaginative leaps, and you really can sort of face them off. I only had, really, one scene with them, but I did feel finally kind of blooded. You’re not the Doctor until you’ve faced the Dakels.”

“It’s probably a boy thing,” chips in Sophia Myles, who played Madame de Pompadour in The Girl in the Fireplace.  She’s visiting David on set, and she’s not all that impressed by Daleks. “I can’t see why the boys get so excited,” she admits.

You can’t watch it once. With every rewatch you notice new things and understand more. And It always makes me cry.

2. Recovery

It’s not only the best of David’s movie, but also extremly strong and interesting story. Also, heartbreaking

3. Dark Knight

I’m a huge Christopher Nolan’s fan and also, I love Batman. So this combination… The movie is dark, serious and brutal. And I feel that’s exactly how Batman’s stroy should be shown.

4. The filth

This is an example of a strong story! Damn, when my friend recommended me this movie I wasn’t aware how hard it would be to watch it.

5. The hunt

Mads, Mads, Mads… Fantastic actor. If you want to watch a film about difficult topics and complicated human relations… Watch The hunt.

6. King’s speech

Colin Firth is one of the greatest actors. And this is such a well written, played and directed film. Funny and serious at the same time.

I’m sitting on my front porch when it happens: The ground starts shaking.
I’m a small Good Omens meme farmer, enjoying life in my small Good Omens community, but I have seen life in the big fandoms. “They’re coming…”
My youngest son, a stringy chap who only knows this peaceful way of life, stops sweeping the porch and looks at me. “Who’s coming, Ma?”
I stand up and stare at the horizon, waiting for Them. “The Tennant fans, lad. The Tennant fans.”

“I first read Good Omens as a teenager and it’s been one of my favourite stories ever since,” Sheen enthuses. “To be part of the team entrusted with bringing it alive on screen is a bit of a dream come true to be honest. To work alongside Neil, who I think is one of the greatest storytellers of all time, is incredibly exciting. And, just like the rest of the world, I’m a huge fan of David’s so I relish trying to save it with him.” - read the article to learn about the characters they will be playing.
