Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams from Doctor Who) performs ‘The Ballad Of Arthur Darvill’, sung to the tune of Let It Go from Frozen for the Matt Edmondson Show on BBC Radio 1. It’s fun, listem him! Let him go and be whatever he wants to be and be whoever character he wants to play.
Arthur Darvill (known as Rory Williams or Rory Pond or Amy’s Rory or the boy who waited) lent his voice to a story for the IKEA Soft Toys For Education Campaign to raise money to support educational projects around the world, run by Save the Children and UNICEF:
For every IKEA soft toy purchased as part of the Soft Toys for Education campaign between 26th October and 27th December 2014, the IKEA Foundation will donate €1 to support these educational projects.
This fan-made video with BBC clips from the first 7 years of the New Who features Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith as the Doctor and also Billie Piper (Rose Tyler), Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones), Catherine Tate (Donna Noble), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond-Williams), Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams), Alex Kingston (River Song / Melody Pond) and Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara Oswald).
Let’s watch and enjoy Matt Smith’s full panel from the St. Louis Comic-Con 2014. The eleventh Doctor talks about his advice for Peter Capaldi, does an impression of Karen Gillian, explains that all the girls in America love Arthur Darvill, gives his choice of past companions, and even sings Let It Go from Frozen.
It’s 3 Questions, 2 Biscuits and 1 Cup of Tea with Arthur Darvill, known for the past role as Doctor Who companion, star of BBC America’s critically-acclaimed new drama Broadchurch.
Hear from Arthur about why he’s still chasing the dream life… of Scrooge McDuck – and what old Hollywood talent he wishes he had. Also, you can learn the proper way to dunk a biscuit, from “Rory the Roman” himself!
Arthur Darvill is the latest to speak about Matt Smith’s departure from Doctor Who. Echoing comments from Alex Kingston earlier in the week, he told BBCA he wasn’t surprised by Smith’s exit: “I’ve known that Matt’s going to leave for awhile, so it wasn’t much of a shock to me, and I saw him last week or the week before.”
“He’s done his time on it, I think. It’s a hard one. You know, I left a year ago, and it was very hard to leave. I think the worst that you can do on something like that is outstay your welcome. It’s better to be missed than for people to go, ‘Just get out,’ so I think it’s a good time for him to leave.”
On who Darvill would like to see as 12th Doctor, he said: “I think they should go for someone older and I don’t know who that should be.”
“I suppose it could be a woman. I don’t know. I think it is a male part, though I think it’s just about the person.”
On the Dame Helen Mirren rumours: “I’d love to see Dame Helen do it — best of luck to whoever gets it, though.”
The bets are still on, the people are debating a lot about the next Doctor… I hope to be a surprise, but not too huge. 😀
David Tennant and Arthur Darvill need no introduction – they both appeared for some time in Doctor Who series. The critically-acclaimed new BBC America drama, Broadchurch, premiering Wednesday Aug 7 at 10pm/9c.
“The drama of the year” – Mirror
“Britain’s biggest new drama since Downton Abbey” – The Guardian
“Full of bravura acting… Impeccable” – London Metro
BBC America’s BROADCHURCH, which earned critical acclaim and broke records on Twitter in the UK, centers on the investigation into the murder of a young boy in a British seaside town.
Leading the investigation are two detectives — the strong yet compassionate local Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller (OLIVIA COLMAN, Twenty Twelve, The Iron Lady), and the by-the-book Detective Inspector Alec Hardy (DAVID TENNANT, Doctor Who, Spies of Warsaw), Ellie’s newly appointed boss.
Broadchurch is an eight part drama created by Doctor Who and Torchwood writer Chris Chibnall which centres on the effect on a small UK seaside town when a schoolboy is found murdered on the beach. David Tennant and Olivia Colman star as mismatched police detectives Hardy and Miller whose task is to find the killer while around them suspicion, fear and grief threaten to tear the small community apart. Arthur Darvill, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and David Bradley also feature in the series that had millions in the UK glued to their TV screens this spring.
By circumstance they are partnered to solve the murder, keeping the newspapers from derailing the investigation and trying to prevent the crime from impacting tourism at the beach where the boy was murdered.
The story looks interesting enough to watch. I hope you will all enjoy the drama.
Considering the age of the Doctor Who series (“only” half of century) and the quality of the show it’s not a surprise that this Time Lord known as the Doctor gathered 80Â million viewers over 206 countries and 5 continents.
