Samuel Anderson has discussed Danny Pink’s appearance in the two-part series finale of Doctor Who and what he hopes next year may hold with Doctor Who Magazine.
We’re going to see the stabilisers fall off for Danny. The ice has been broken now with Clara. They’re very much at ease with each other
Eps 11 and 12 were such challenging ones for me. I had to get it right. Forget your inhibitions. It would have been crappy if I hadn’t believed in it. You’ll see where Danny lies morally what he hopes to get out of his relationship with Clara… By the end of the season, Moffat has kind of immortalised Danny Pink. That has definitely been my proudest moment ever, ever, ever
Immortalised? That sounds sinister. I was hoping he might fall out of the TARDIS by the end of the season.
Coming out the other end of Eps 10,11 and 12, and realising, ‘Wow, I’ve survived, I’ve made it, I’ve really pushed it,’ kind of makes you want to go, ‘One more year, c’mon!’
It’s a fantastic show. It’s been brilliant. It’s gone so fast. I don’t think you can really top it. To go again? Oh, hell yeah. Get all your readers to write in. Start a campaign for Danny Pink. If not Danny, bring back Orson, as his descendant. Yeah, I feel like I’ve only just got started
I’d like to start a campaign for Danny to follow Rose to that parallel universe, although C.S Hughes would prefer Danny share Donna Noble’s fate where he can never remember anything about the Doctor again lest his head explodes…
