Dozy actor lets the lizard (cat) out of the… er, underground lair (bag)

11th February 2010 • Blog Post by Jonathan Capps •

While we promise not to just regurgitate every little story we see on other sites, this is very interesting indeed.  As that article has spoiler tags I’ll do you all the courtesy of continuing this post below the jump.

Venture forth for some of them tasty spoilerinos…

The aforementioned dozy actor is Neve McIntosh, and this is what she’s been blabbing:

“The stories have got a bit darker. I play twins, and they’re big lizardwarrior women. They’re one of the Silurian tribes that have been undisturbed under the earth. And of course we get disturbed. It’s the first time I’ve worn prosthetics but I’m still recognisable if you know me well enough.”

Anyone who’s cast even half an eye on the trailer for series 5 will know that it featured weird lizard humanoid things.  There’s been a lot of back and forth on various ming-mong heavy arenas about what these lizards are and the popular opinion that they’re Silurians has been confirmed by Mrs. Blabby Mouth up there.  Not that it matters so much as this fact would’ve been confirmed before broadcast, anyway and, you know, I and many others live for spoilers like this.  They excite us.

Speaking of sexual excitement, the Silurians will be appearing in a two-parter by ex-Torchwood head writer and Cyber-fetishist Chris Chibnal.  The last time Chris tore himself away from orgasm induced insomnia to write a Who episode we got the distinctly rubbish 42, so it’s time to hope against hope Moff can get something good out of him.  It has to be said, though, including one of the best races Doctor Who has ever created is a good start.

Jonathan Capps‘ name translates in the old Draconian tongue as “The Oncoming Storm”. Curiously enough, when spelled out backwards, it translates in Kaled as “Gobby Northerner Who Likes Sandwiches”.
