Terrence Hardiman: Who Fan

A recent interview with The Beast Below guest star Terrence Hardiman has revealed that The Demon Headmaster actor is a bit of a Doctor Who fan…

Terrence Hardiman in Doctor WhoEpisode 2 of the new series of Doctor Who guest stars Hardiman as Hawthorne, the leader of a hooded sect. Without revealing too much, let’s just say it isn’t entirely clear what or who he is until late in the episode – but sadly he doesn’t have swirling eyes.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the actor who petrified a generation of kids 14 years ago revealed that he’s been watching Doctor Who since the 1960s…

“I’m old enough to remember the very first ones. I’ve seen all of the Doctors and I think they’ve all been fantastic in their own ways. I think it’s a wonderful idea that they get regenerated, because it gives this superb freshness each time a new series starts. Clearly from the first episode of this series, it’s grabbed the imagination of the public. I saw the viewing figures today and they’re quite remarkable.”

While The Beast Below hasn’t quite had the same effect (despite an almost as-strong audience share as The Eleventh Hour) I’m sure Terrence was delighted to get the chance to appear in Doctor Who.

Hardiman is also very complementary to the new star of Doctor Who – in fact its a cool little interview, worth a read!
