The Day of the Doctor

Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith and Tenth Doctor David Tennant spoke to Digital Spy in a new video interview on The Day of the Doctor.

When asked how it felt being back in the suit and playing the Doctor, David said “It feels weirdly familiar, in many ways like I’ve never been away, and then it’s very peculiar…to be back to something that was such a huge part of my everyday life.”

On working alongside  a former incarnation of the Doctor, Matt said “There’s a rivalry in the story but that what everyone wants to see, but as people we get on very well and I loved acting with David. I think it’s been really fun.”

David added “When you know a character very well…when you’ve played him a lot, the best thing for him to happen is to experience something new and there can be nothing more unique than meeting yourself.”

“We hope that it’s going to be the biggest and best that we’ve done and right up there with the great Who episodes.” said Matt.
