Your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) has told Radio 5 Live it was an ‘honour’ to appear in Doctor Who, reports Digital Spy.

Garfield, who plays the titular web head in The Amazing Spider-Man, appeared in both Daleks in Manhattan and Evolution of the Daleks in 2007.

Speaking on Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo’s Film Reviews, Garfield commented:

“The history of Doctor Who and the heritage and legacy of Doctor Who is huge…It was an honour to be a part of that show, absolutely. And I’m so happy that everyone is now seeing Matt Smith for the incredible actor and Doctor that he is.”

Garfield – who appeared alongside Tenth Doctor David Tennant – calls Matt Smith a ‘friend’ and ‘a tremendous actor’:

“I am so proud and happy for him. He… is being put to fantastic use, and giving so many people so much joy, God bless him. I’m honoured to be a part of that legacy.”

The Amazing Spider-Man opens in cinemas on 3rd July.
