Interview With The Chicago Tribune

David recently spoke with Maureen Ryan of The Chicago Tribune. You can read their interview below:

Where are you in the filming of the "Doctor Who" specials?

I'm all finished. Three or four weeks ago, I filmed my last scene. So it's over. Still a long time to go before they're all broadcast, though, so I'm still clinging on for a bit. But yeah, it's done.
