Two of my friends said that the 9th Doctor was ugly, horrible, and there was no point to him. They said that no one liked him and everyone who did is an idiot. I told them tons of people liked him and they didn’t believe me.
So reblog this and I will write your url in a notebook labeled “People Who Appreciate Nine” and give it to them to let them become aware of the lovely people like you guys. Deadline is March 22nd.
As culled from various interviews, the DVD commentaries and assorted miscellany. I tried not to go with the more obvious bits of trivia (like Benedict dyes his hair) but if you’re a hardcore fan, you’ll likely still know all of these anyway:
- Martin Freeman plays army doctor John Watson, formerly with the Royal Army Medical Corps. In real life, Martin’s grandfather was a medic with the 150th Field Ambulance, RAMC, during World War II. Leonard Freeman was killed in a Luftwaffe attack on May 24, 1940, during the Battle of Dunkirk.
- Benedict Cumberbatch was the only actor asked to audition for the role of Sherlock, after Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue saw him in the film Atonement and Mark Gatiss, who’d worked with him on the film Starter for 10, vouched for him. Benedict’s audition was filmed in Beryl Vertue’s London flat, where she served tea and biscuits “like Mrs. Hudson.”
- (The Great Game) In the scene where Sherlock examines Carl Powers’ shoe in the lab, his solo shots were done on a separate day than the shots with John. They had to shoot part of the scene without Martin Freeman after he was injured from slipping on the icy steps of a production trailer.
- The pilot and A Study in Pink were filmed one year apart (in 2009 and 2010, respectively).
- The dog in Hounds of Baskerville was named Whiskey after Mark Gatiss’ own childhood dog. Kirstie’s pet was an homage to Mark’s husband Ian’s childhood pet, a rabbit named Bluebell.
Even if you are slightly doubting his existence, reblog anyway.
How can you doubt this Time Lord’s existence?
I believe he is real in some parallel universe, and the idea of him has bled into our universe as fiction.
I’m always listening for the TARDIS
