David Tennant’s Contributions to Doctor Who Episodes “Void Stuff” Edition
From the Doomsday DVD Commentary with David Tennant and Billie Piper
David: We came up with that, didn’t we? Billie: Yeah! David: That sort of idea that we trail slightly. Billie: Yeah David: So that you could kind of… you can try to touch them if we moved about
Orig.Poster’s note: This post is part of a series on some of the contributions that David made to episodes of Doctor Who, because he sometimes gets questions about ad-libs or input he may have had to episodes, but he tends to not take credit for his various additions/suggestions - so I figured I’d list some for him. From what David & Billie say on the commentary, it appears that the Doctor’s little dance and Rose putting her hand out to touch the void-stuff was actually their idea for how to play this scene (and of course The Mill had to help them out later when adding the special effects - to make the void stuff behave as requested). I’m glad - because the void-stuff behavior (as well as David’s little dance to show off that behavior) do make this scene more memorable, I believe.
