Smith on Comic Relief Specials
Matt Smith spoke to TV & Satellite Week about next Friday’s Doctor Who Comic Relief specials and let slip a few details.
On the story for the two mini-episodes, Smith said: “It’s great. The set-up is that the three of us are all in the TARDIS together, and the TARDIS materialises within itself and there are two Amy Ponds. It’s a real jaunt and a bit of fun.”
Asked if there is good and bad Amy, he hinted: “I couldn’t possibly say, but she is quite pleased to meet herself, put it that way. Rory is bemused by the whole affair but, needless to say, two Amy Ponds in his life is no bad thing. Karen really enjoyed playing two versions of herself and it is a really funny performance from her.”
Smith also spoke fondly of the 1999 Comic Relief special, The Curse of Fatal Death (video below).
“It is something I always watched as a kid, but I think seeing Rowan Atkinson play the Doctor back in 1999 is one of my favourite moments,” he said. “The sketch had Hugh Grant in it as well and I thought he and Rowan were brilliant. There is something exciting about getting people together like that as a team.”
