The fifth Doctor Who pres pack has been issued by the BBC’s publicity department. Covering the sixth episode, Dalek, it features interviews with writer Rob Shearman and cast members Bruno Langley and Nicholas Briggs.
Former Coronation Street actor Langley plays scientist Adam Mitchell who works for megalomaniac billionaire Henry Van Statten , a collector of strange artefacts which he keeps in his secure bunker in Utah.
One of those artefacts is the very last Dalek.
Nick Briggs, who voices the Dalek, says: “The Dalek is initially very vulnerable and suffering from a mental breakdown. He came shooting to Earth through the time-space vortex many years ago and spent God knows how long in a huge crater just screaming.”
“Now he’s in the hands of Van Statten – who has done all sorts of nasty things to him to try and make him talk – and he’s kind of gone off the rails.”
‘Dalek’ airs on BBC One on Saturday 30 April at 7pm.
