The BBC Press Office has released phase three of the Doctor Who ‘Press Pack which features an interview with Simon Callow who plays Charles Dickens.
Callow explains how his “heart rather sank” at the news that Dickens was to appear alongside Rose and The Doctor. However he goes on to say that the script by Mark Gatiss “was obviously the work of someone who knows exactly what Dickens is all about.”
There is also an interview with Gatiss in which the writer discusses his vision of Doctor Who as “a new show, not one addressing a dwindling bunch of Doctor Who diehards like me, but a modern show for a new audience.”
