who you’ve got now? no one. travelling alone.
He’s like fire and ice and rage. He’s like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He’s ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And… he’s wonderful.
Pals David Tennant and Mark Gatiss – behind the scenes of The Lazarus Experiment
Excerpts from the DVD Commentary with David Tennant and Mark Gatiss:Mark: So, this is my Doctor Who that I’m in.
David: Yeah! That’s it!
Mark: Having waited all my life. Even before the program was on I wanted to be in it.
David: You are one of… now there is a fact here isn’t there? One of only 3 people to have written and appeared in Doctor Who.
<…and then Mark presents an argument that one of those gentlemen doesn’t count because it wasn’t a speaking part, making him only the 2nd writer to have also acted in an episode>
[Discussing the scene after Lazarus falls to his death on the floor of the cathedral]
Mark: Now your shoe is about to come down just in time…
Mark and David: OOOHHHH!!!
David: It’s only a naked man!
Mark: Was that a first?
David: Is it? No, I think John Barrowman was the first naked man in Doctor Who, but I think you can only be the second.
Mark: Oh, I’m sick of this! Second.. or third… or not even that! What’s going on?
David: <Squeaks with laughter> You’re the first writer who has also appeared in the show who is also naked.
David: That is definitely you
