The TARDIS team is stuck in a dream dilemma,
and the Dream Lord's deception will drag the Doctor down to Earth with a bump.
Are you pregnant?
Arthur Darvill guides Confidential through the reality behind the fantasy.
It's the Doctor's fantasy versus Rory's fantasy.
As Rory turns father-to-be,
..and '70s rock god.
-It's been such a fast episode.
-So much happens in it.
So join Confidential as Arthur takes us through the filming process
from beginning...to end.
I'm going to show you around a bit and kind of show you how we made it.
It's day one of the production block and in the studios in Cardiff,
Arthur has the latest script hot off the press
to prepare for the cast and crew read-through.
We received the final script of this today.
And we've got the read-through this afternoon.
And then we start filming it tomorrow.
I'm quite looking forward to this one cos it's a really funny script.
And I've only just read it,
so, you know, there's only so much you can prepare.
But it's good to hear the whole story
and good to hear people's first impressions,
it really is a first impression.
And sometimes you really go for it.
I think the thing that blew us away about Arthur was -
and we saw a lot of good people for the part of Rory -
was just how funny he was.
Arthur has that perfect... He always finds a perfect moment for a gag.
You just summoned aliens back to Earth!
Aliens of death. And now you're taking your clothes off.
He found a space next to our two leads,
who already seemed rather complete.
But he actually, once he comes in,
it's quite hard to imagine the show without him,
which is a tremendous tribute to Arthur's brilliance.
Oh, you're a doctor!
Oh, yeah. And, unlike you, I've passed some exams.
A doctor, not a nurse, just like you always dreamed.
I think the three of us get on really well in,
you know, in real life,
which makes it, you know, far easier to get on with working,
you know, at work.
It's the first day on location
and the TARDIS trio are getting the final touches to their bump,
MUSIC: "Whatever You Want" by Status Quo
I think it was called like a Britney wig, or something, at first.
So, yeah, I look pretty... pretty good.
Then Babs, the make-up designer for this did an amazing job cutting it
to make it look a bit more masculine...a bit more masculine,
and then put it back in a ponytail.
Everyone basically has just told me how cool I look with it.
There have been no negative comments so far.
It was hideous, I think it's safe to say.
But it was really funny.
It made Arthur look really different.
I find him quite scary to look at, actually.
And I hope he doesn't get any ideas
and decides to grow his hair like that.
And in this episode, it wasn't just Arthur's hair which gained some extra body.
Hello and welcome to a new segment of Doctor Who Confidential
called Arthur Chews The Fat.
I will be chatting to the good and the great on Doctor Who
and literally today I will be chewing the fat
with Karen Gillan.
Um, a few quick questions for you today.
-What do you mean, literally chewing the fat?
OK. Fire away!
So, how is it, being massive?
It's fantastic. I'd like to introduce you to my...
-..our, in fact...
-What is it actually made of?
-I don't know.
Ray, what is this, what's inside the bump?
It's a latex prosthetic bump.
-So it's completely latex.
-Ray Holman, costume.
-That's why we have a little belly button.
No stuffing. So it's slightly heavy as well.
And I have massive breasts made of lentils.
I developed a bump dance,
which is basically kind of moving it around and shaking it
and it just looked really weird.
Go on, go on!
Show them the belly dance!
We're in Skenfrith village, it's an amazing little village.
I haven't actually seen anyone who lives here.
I think they've all run away for the day.
First thing we're doing today
is just before we see the children turn to dust,
then we've got a massive...
It's a five- or six-page scene with the Dream Lord
in the village, which will take up most of the day.
Course you don't.
Course I do. No idea how you can be here, but there's only one person
in the universe who hates me as much as you do.
Never mind me. Maybe you should worry about them.
So many of the monsters in Doctor Who are kind of computer-generated
and to have a whole bunch of people
with Zimmer frames and walking sticks with their mouths open was pretty...
I mean, it was hilarious. But it was quite scary.
# They say I might as well face the truth
# That I am just too long in the tooth
# I started to deteriorate
# And now I'm past my own sell-by date... #
Now we get a terrible insight into the mind of Simon Nye, don't we?
I asked him to come up with a Doctor Who monster and he thought, "Old people!"
Well done, Simon, you strange man. I think it's a brilliant idea!
# So I'm a wrinkly crinkly But don't shed a tear
# I'm not exactly a little old dear
# One thing's for sure I'm still bloody well here
# One foot in the grave
# One foot in the grave
# One foot in the grave. #
It looks like I've got it in for old people.
I just think there is something scary,
especially if you're young, about old people.
I'm heading that way myself, as we all are, hopefully, one day,
but I think we can all remember, as a child particularly,
lovely aunts and grandparents just looking a bit scary.
Hello! We were wondering where you went.
To get reinforcements, by the look of it.
Are you all right? You look a bit tense.
And it's partly to do with the teeth, perhaps,
which is why the Eknodines in this episode,
who invaded these poor people's bodies,
they emerge from their mouths.
There is an eye in her mouth!
There's a whole creature inside her, inside all of them, living and waiting.
I hope I don't put children off their grandparents
because, obviously, we should be learning from the elderly
rather than mocking them or making them look scary.
But, um, that's what we're doing in this episode.
The next day, the Who crew head off into the country
for Rory's dream house.
Release the geese!
So I'm about to hit an old woman with a stick...
..which isn't something I've done before.
I'm quite looking forward to it. I forgot we were doing this today!
It's a big stick as well.
Little old lady.
And obviously, just pull it and she'll just squat out of shot.
Believe it or not, it's not a real piece of wood.
It's made of something else.
..so it's softer, but it looks like a piece of wood.
So...that's a bit of inside information.
Mrs Hammill... we don't understand.
I'll deal with this one, chubs...
'We only have one piece of wood and I broke it quite early on.'
-I can't hit her.
We got the shots, thank God, but...
..I-I just broke it.
I'll deal with this, chubs...
'Obviously, Audrey is there and it looks like...
'I hit her with a big piece of wood...'
-I can't hit her.
-'The way they shoot it is really clever.'
When she's facing the camera, you kind of go to hit,
but you don't actually touch. And then they cut to a shot from...
behind her, which is actually a stunt woman who I was allowed to hit.
-I really hit her with it?
I wasn't quite sure if I...
if I hit hard enough, if it looked real enough.
But I watched it back and I think it does.
They'll cut it together and put a big sound effect on it so I'm sure it'll be...
It's very weird just hitting someone with a stick.
I can't hit her!
SHE TUTS Whack her!
I think we've only got a couple more days left on this episode...
..which is a bit weird.
It's kind of coming to the end.
But, yeah, it's going... It's funny, I went through the script...
last night again, and I haven't even shot most of it.
And it's like, "Oh, wow." It's gone really fast.
And Arthur's last adventure is to film Rory Williams's long goodbye.
The death scene was really weird because it was so quick.
It happens so out of the blue.
HE SCREAMS Rory!
'It's horrible because Rory, at that point knows'
it's his reality.
No! I'm not ready!
'It's like everything he ever wanted is just completely being denied.'
Look after our baby.
'I think in that moment, Amy realises her feelings towards him.'
It's just tragic it takes something like that for her to realise.
'It is to her own shock, absolutely clear to the moment she loses Rory,
'that she could not bear'
to be without him. And that is proper shock.
It's not the Doctor, it's never been the Doctor, it's about Rory.
I think Amy surprises herself by realising that it's great to have
an enigmatic genius to run around after
and be with, but in the end,
that's perhaps not enough. I think she realises that...
she really does love Rory.
This is the dream.
How do you know?
Because if this is real life, I don't want it.
I don't want it.
Massive turn in their relationship,
you know, when Rory dies. Maybe he realises exactly what she wants.
Killing herself in a dream where she doesn't know if she's going to wake up,
but the thought of living without him is...
not worth considering.
'It really cements...
at that point. And it makes Rory so happy.
From now on, trust nothing you see, hear or feel.
This is good.
I don't know. Anywhere is good for me.
I'm happy anywhere.
It's up to Amy this time.
