Arthur Darvill Metro Interview

Arthur Darvill was interviewed in today's edition of the Metro about Doctor Who, Rory's many deaths and taxidermy. You can read the full interview here.

What can we expect frmo the second half of the series?
Me, Matt and Karen watched it a few weeks ago. It’s always better than we think it’s going to be but we are amazed by how good these episodes are. Each one is like a movie. David Walliams is in one episode dressed as a mole, which is very entertaining.

How many times do you get killed off during these episodes?
I’m not going to divulge any spoilers but Rory dying has become a bit of a thing. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve died. It’s become a bit of a running joke but it seems to work. In the world of Doctor Who, people can die and then come back. It’s good for a bit of drama and I don’t think it’s ever been gratuitous. Being shot by a big lizard is a good way to go.

Have you got any plans for pop stardom yourself?
I’d like to record an album and I write music for theatre. Everyone dreams of being a rock star and playing with Fyfe gave me the taste for it. Acting’s my priority and first love and I couldn’t leave it for long.

Which are your favourite monsters?
The Silence are amazing – they’re such a good psychological monster. The fact you can’t remember them when you look away from them means you can believe they might actually be amongst us. They’re a brilliant invention.

Why do you collect taxidermy?
I’m a big fan of live animals but you can’t have a badger in your house. I have this idea of having a gentleman’s study with animals everywhere. There’s something old fashioned about it. I make sure I get vintage ones that are legal. I’m trying to get an owl. I’ve got a red squirrel, called Steve, and a badger’s head.
