Matt Interview MQ New York Premiere and Comic Con Bowling Pictures and Pond Life Part 4
Can you tell us what’s different about this series?
“Series seven is all about the fall of the Ponds. We recently had the read-through for the last episode, where we say goodbye to the gang, and that was very emotional. You have to embrace change on Doctor Who, otherwise it leaves you behind. We’re all really sad to see them go, because we have great fun with them, but we’re intent on making these last five episodes the best they can be as our journey approaches its climax.”
The story goes that Bert was chippy, but hey, he was a brilliant sportsman and sometimes brilliant sportsmen are built that way.
By its very nature there is artistic licence but one would hope that it’s sensitive in the right ways.
The story and Billy’s writing interested me. There is something heroic and victorious about that story which affected me as I read it.
I’d never got in a boat before, so that was a daunting but exciting challenge. What you learn is that your body is just a mechanism and rowing isn’t about pulling it’s about force, it’s about pushing.
I keep fit while I’m trying to make Dr Who but there are many levels of fit.
If you watch any rowing final, you see the physical agony they’re in afterwards, it’s like they’ve been hit over the head with a baseball bat.
Every ounce of your body, every group of muscles is used somewhere.
I think it’s incredible what they do.
What was it like training with the world-famous Leander Rowing Club?
“It was pretty daunting. I’d never set foot in a boat before. It was hard work. We’d get up about sevenish and train as they were doing. Everyone at the Leander Club welcomed us and helped us greatly and we couldn’t of done it without them.”
How did you get on with the specially designed, two-man skull rowing boats?
“The boats that we were rowing in were similar to the ones that Bert and Dickie rowed in so were much harder, even the Olympians were saying that. They were not easy. It’s to do with how they are weighted and balanced, and the types of oars, which were very thin, we had three or four duckings.”

Things turned slightly somber when Matt was asked about the next season of Who. “The fall of the Ponds is about to commence,” he said, referring to the imminent departures of Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as Rory and Amy. But he said Jenna-Louise Coleman was “doing really well” as the new companion and teased Dame Diana Rigg’s guest appearance in the new season. Asked about the weirdest thing he’s done as the Doctor, he responded, “Being painted from head-to-toe.” Interesting…
