VIDEO: John Hurt Talks About David Tennant And Matt Smith

Red Carpet News caught up with The War Doctor himself, John Hurt, at the Critics' Circle Film Awards yesterday. They asked him for his thoughts on being part of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary celebrations and playing an incarnation of the Doctor in The Day Of The Doctor alongside David Tennant and Matt Smith.

"I love working with Matt. I love working with David as well," he said, "They were brilliant at it...I had to get the old gym shoes on to keep up with them, I tell you."

John also admitted that the international reach of the show caught him by surprise. "To be quite honest I didn't realise how big Doctor Who was," he confessed. "I thought it was a cult!"
