friday doctor who blogging
Peter Davison demonstrates that in order to play The Doctor, you've gotta be pretty well-acquainted with your inner Doctor first:
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR FIRST ACT AS RULER?
"To decree that anyone who started a war had to be strapped to the front of the tank when it went into battle. We'd go back to the old days when the ruler would lead from the front."
WHO WOULD BE YOUR MOST TRUSTED ADVISER?
"Stephen Fry. I've never heard him say anything I didn't agree with and think he's extraordinarily wise. He'd be a good person to have around."
WHO WOULD YOU BANISH?
"Anyone who complains about the number of immigrants in this country. I've liked nearly every person who has come into this country from abroad I've ever met. I'm sure there are bad ones, but the overwhelming majority come here, work hard and love this country, bizarrely."
WHICH BUILDING WOULD YOU DEMOLISH AND WHY?
"I'm tempted to say the MI5 building, but rather than pull it down I'd rather turn it into something nice."
WHICH RULER/MONARCH DO YOU MOST ADMIRE OR HAVE MOST IN COMMON WITH?
"I have a sneaking suspicion that in 50 years time we'll discover that Castro isn't half as bad as we think he is. He outlived his enemies, he's managed to take Cuba back from America's playground, and hold them off for all those years. We hear lots of terrible stories about him, but most end up being nonsense."
