Today saw both the BBC's Breakfast
and ITV1's Daybreak
shows featuring items on the return of Doctor Who
The BBC's item was presented by entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba
, who spoke to both Matt Smith
and Karen Gillan
about what to expect in the coming weeks. Talking about this weekend's Asylum of the Daleks
, Matt said:
You do feel that sense of the great enemy, and he completely loathes them. The Doctor doesn't hate much, but he hates the Daleks, and it's possibly one of his great weaknesses, but I think they're one of the only alien enemies that he purely despises.
UK viewers can watch the article below (which contains clips from the upcoming episode that might be considered spoilers):
In addition, the BBC's Doctor Who
website features an interview with the episode's writer Steven Moffat
on the return of the Daleks
. You can also catch up on coverage of the preview screenings of the episode in London
and New York
Daybreak saw resident TV reviewer Richard Arnold
chatting to Matt and Karen, with the latter revealing her 'geek' tendencies:
I think I was always a geek, it took Doctor Who to bring it out of me, because I love The X Files, and Star Trek, and when I got this job I became a fully fledged geek. (Geek Chic) is definitely back!
Matt Smith also reaffirmed his intentions after this series is over:
I've always said that I'll be around for the 50th Anniversary and that's what we go into next year, so absolutely I'll be around next year - it's the most exciting year for the show and I wouldn't want to miss it.
