Thanks David! I actually like doing these, and they take longer than you'd think as I 'pretend' to get a flowing lines like they are second nature, but in reality they took me ages! re-d doing a chin or hair line over an over and over! I take my hat off to caricaturists. The programme is brilliant, I think, a bit slow to start but gloriously dark and bleak.
I don't think you're unique in finding that it's hard work to make things look effortless. I remember reading about Mike Kalutta, saying how he was always suspicious of glib and casual drawing and that his own pencil layouts were always in danger of disintegrating from all the erasing and over drawing he does. The fact is it takes great skill to make things look this simple and you should be justifiably proud..I love em!
As for Peter? Well apart from being a brilliant actor he is also the consummate gentleman. Enthusiastic, generous to his fellow performers and co workers and a great champion of low budget 'get it done for the love of it' TV and movies. I worked with him some years ago on a very low budget Scottish horror movie where all he did was one day's work for hotel and lunch. The first time I worked with him on Dr Who he recognised me and came over and we reminisced about our shared day on the Scottish moors! He was telling me about his first experience on DW: "I was supposed to be inside a giant (censored) and these guys were throwing washing machine piping and buckets of slime at me…I fucking loved it!!" Being on Dr Who is like being part of a close family and Peter is like our new long lost uncle!
