John Hurt: ‘Doctor Who’ should have kissing scenes   Leave a comment

Waris Hussein, who directed the first ever episode of Doctor Who in 1963, said the programme had become too sexual, but John Hurt disagrees.

“I’m not sure about that,” says Hurt, who will appear in the show’s 50th anniversary episode. Speaking at a dinner at the W Hotel to celebrate the Liberatum Cultural Honour awarded to Hurt, the actor adds: “I’d never begrudge a kiss, or a kissing scene.”

Hurt is currently filming his scenes for the anniversary episode. “I’m in the middle of filming, I start again at 9am tomorrow. it’s brilliant and I am getting to work with David Tennant, who I have a lot of time for.”

He tells Mandrake that details of his role in the series must, however, remain confidential. “I’m sworn to secrecy about my character and my scenes.”

The actor adds that it had never been an ambition of his to join the series, but when the offer came he was unable to say no. “I’d never thought about it to be honest, but, as soon as they asked me, I knew what my answer would be.”
