BBC News has interviewed Arthur Darvill. The majority of it concerns his new theatre role in Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, but he does chat about Doctor Who a little.

On the secrecy of the plots:

“I forget what I can and can’t talk about, so I end up talking about nothing for hours – which has become quite a skill. My mum sent me a text straight after [A Good Man Goes to War] saying: ‘Does this mean I’m Alex Kingston’s grandmother?'”

“The press have been really good at keeping things under wraps – otherwise it’s like watching a football match and knowing the result.”

On the Autumn half of Series 6:

“I’m so excited the second half of the series that’s coming up – what Steven [Moffat] has done is something quite brilliant – it’s really going to surprise people.”

A bigger surprise than Rory being River Song’s dad?

“Oh that’s nothing!” he laughs.
