As Doctor Who returns with a new team and a new look this Easter, we eagerly stepped on board the TARDIS for Matt Smith?s first ever interview with the gay press. And in 47 years of the show, he is the first Doctor to ever hold the cover spot of a gay magazine.
We also have unprecedented coverage of the new series, with exclusive content including the first ever interview with the latest addition to the cast, Arthur Darvill. We speak with the Doctor?s assistant Karen Gillan, head writer Steven Moffat, executive producer Piers Wenger and a selection of other characters and creatives, both returning and new.
What?s more, writer Gareth Roberts reveals that Matt Smith is set to appear pretty much naked in episode eleven, while costume designer Ray Holman tells us what kind of underwear the new Doctor prefers?
Matt Smith on his new role as the Doctor:
?What?s gorgeous about it is that I get to sort of confess to my imagination every day. So I get to play around in a mad, imaginary world every day, which is limitless and timeless, and endless and boundless. You know, that is as close as you get to sort of magic really, I suppose, in many ways.?
On being described by executive producer Steven Moffat as ?Patrick Moore in the body of an underwear model?:
?The thing is, right, I?ll take Patrick Moore, fine. But I definitely haven?t got an underwear model?s body, no way, not on this schedule. All my gym?s gone out the window. God no, I take that as a gross over-compliment to be honest. And also! When the hell has Steven Moffat seen me in my pants alone??
April?s issue of GT Magazine is on sale 24 March and also features exclusive ineterviews with Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg, plus Jamie Campbell Bower, Debbie Reynolds, Tracy-Ann Oberman and the real Phillip Morris.
