This week: Swimming, screams, sharks
Great relationship stuff in this episode. We find out a lot.
I am here, Amy Pond.
Turn that light off!
-What is this, how does it work?
-This is The Gate.
From here, you may depart to any of Twostreams' entertainment zones.
This gave Confidential an idea. If Karen and Arthur had a holodeck to play with,
what daredevil dream would they fulfil?
So we asked Arthur, and he said he wanted to do this.
Whilst Karen, who's never had a driving lesson in her whole life,
-wanted to do this.
Yo. So I travel all of time and space with the Doctor on a regular basis,
but one thing that I've never actually learned to do is drive.
So by the end of the day, on this race track,
I'm going to learn how to drive that.
-OK. Well, hi, Pat.
-So you're going to teach me the basics.
-I am, most definitely.
I've never driven before in my entire life.
It's going to be fun!
I'm sure we're going to be fine.
I'm going to teach you how to drive on a race circuit.
So now, we need a few revs with the accelerator.
So with the right foot, just a few revs. That's it. Perfect.
-Oh, my God!
-And then what we do is we very gently
then let our foot off the clutch, just to get the car moving.
-Oh, no. Why am I not moving?
-No, here we go! We're moving,
-we're moving, it's a good start.
-My God, please don't stall.
Steer over to the left a little bit.
-Perfect. How was that? That was all right, wasn't it?
Your first time pulling away and you haven't even stalled.
With steering, we just need to look where we want to go. It's that hand-eye co-ordination.
Get yourself a bit of a weave around, move the steering left and right,
get a feel for what it does.
OK, I've still got my foot on the clutch.
You can take that all the way off now and just rest that to the left.
OK, all right. Cool. Oh, God, I'm going.
-Do we want to go a little bit faster?
Can we go a bit faster?
You just press the gas pedal.
-ENGINE GETS LOUDER Oh, my God, this is crazy!
-Lewis Hamilton, eat your heart out.
-I am Lewis Hamilton, yes. Exactly.
-Button - pfft!
-Yes, no problem at all.
KAREN SCREAMS AND LAUGHS
We're only in first gear, but we're getting there. It's a good place to start.
We might need second gear if we're going to go much faster.
Remember, clutch down, off the gas and gear lever back.
-So, clutch down.
So you're actually driving round the fastest racing circuit in the UK now.
Oh, my God! I can't believe I'm actually doing this.
Confidential! Look at me! Woo-hoo!
-Don't forget to look where you're going.
So, Pat, How did I do?
-I think you were an absolute star.
-You did really, really well this morning.
So good, we're going to let you out in this one this afternoon.
-Oh, my good God!
-So you're going 90 horsepower to 420 horsepower.
-So, pretty cool.
Now, in Doctor Who, Rory's done some pretty exciting things,
and some pretty terrifying things.
He's battled with Daleks, he's travelled in time,
he's done some crazy stuff.
But something that both excites and terrifies me
is the idea of swimming with sharks,
which I shall be doing, today, in this building here.
So I'm going to go and see how big their teeth are.
BASS STING FROM JAWS PLAYS
I'm really excited, looking at them right now.
The fact I'm going to be in there is pretty terrifying.
I've been snorkelling a few times, and always been like, will there be a shark?
It is quite nice to see one in a controlled environment.
If I saw one in the wild, I would freak out.
So, now that Arthur's whet his appetite for sharks,
it's time to sink his teeth into some proper underwater action.
OK. So now you have to wear this.
What it will do, this camera at the front
will give everyone a perspective of what you're seeing, the hero.
-Shall we try putting it on?
-Yeah, let's try.
I'm going to look great in this.
I want one now. There you go. OK?
-It does up at the bottom like that.
-I feel like I'm six years old on a bike.
It looks ridiculous! Great, thanks, guys.
It's like something from James Bond. I've just been looking into the pool.
I'm pretty nervous but I'm quite excited.
I think I may have a moment freaking out. Don't film that bit!
As long as they don't bump into me, I think I'll be all right.
'I thought I'd freak out, but I started laughing.
'It was really hard to use the equipment properly,
'because I was just laughing through my nose and making bubbles.
'Because there were just massive sharks all around me.'
'It's a strange thing about being underwater, it's just so peaceful.
'I sound really chilled out because I am.
'It was actually less terrifying, more just really relaxing.'
'Just getting down to the floor, and them swimming so close to you,
'as close as you could...
'And I really, I'm glad they said don't touch them beforehand,
'because I really would have at a few points just reached out
'and tried to stroke a shark.
'But they're very cool.
'It's the ones that move really slowly that really freak me out.
'The ones that kind of swim past are like, "Wow, a shark!"
'And there's some that just come, and like, "Oh, no, he's looking at me.
'"He's looking at me. He's going to go for me."
'And then there's these ones with these teeth that just stick out.
'Which after a while became hilarious, but first, freaked me out.
'And they actually gave me a tooth,
'a shark's tooth from one of the sharks that I was swimming with.'
And they're huge. They're much bigger than I thought they were going to be.
Thank you. Thank you, Confidential, for making my dreams come true.
Confidential is taking Karen to one of the UK's fastest race circuits to learn to drive.
But now it's time to graduate to a 420 horsepower beast.
-Are you sitting comfortably?
-Then we shall begin.
Perfect. Just hold at that, it'll come back to the red one.
Wait for the red one and then turn.
No need to brake. You're fine with that.
Look for the green one.
OK, after the red cone...
..follow the red one.
Come over to the right now. That's perfect.
-It's a long corner. It seems to go on for ever.
If you get it wrong it could be very short. I wouldn't recommend it.
There you go, that's great.
Middle of the road.
-Over to the left now.
-Go on. Faster. Go on!
-You're doing 100 miles an hour.
-Oh, my gosh.
Off the accelerator now.
Hold it. That's perfect.
We've got to stop here. Just there is perfect. Stop.
-She is not real.
-She is. Let her in.
We take this Amy, we leave ours.
There can only be one Amy. Which one do you want?
Getting to that point where they go into the TARDIS and the Doctor says, "You can't do this"...
..it's one of the hardest situations Rory has ever been in.
-Amy, I love you.
-I love you too.
She sacrifices her own life for her younger self.
You can't leave her. She'll die.
She'll never have existed. When we save our Amy, this future won't have happened.
Don't let me in.
At the end he gets Amy back
with the knowledge that when she gets older, she'll still love him.
So it's quite a big thing.
