Mark Gatiss and Churchill talk Daleks!

Mark Gatiss, the writer of tonight's Doctor Who episode, Victory of the Daleks, has given an interview to Digital Spy.

Extract from the interview:
What can you tell us about Victory of the Daleks?
"What can I tell you that isn't already all over the internet? Well, in a scene we've lost [in the final cut], he sort of explains that he's known Churchill throughout Churchill's life - when he was a young man fighting in the Sudan, and he went to his memorial service - so it's that idea of rather than one single meeting with a famous figure they actually have a kind of relationship. It goes right back to Jon Pertwee saying, 'I said to Napoleon: Boney, I said...' I like the idea that it isn't just a one-off thing, you have an ongoing friendship with people like Churchill."

Ian McNeice, who plays Winston Churchill in Victory of the Daleks has also given a Q&A to the website.

How did your role come about?
"I think maybe the casting director had seen a play I did at The National called Never So Good, which was about Harold Macmillan, played by Jeremy Irons. I played Winston Churchill. So I think they got a glimmer from that I may possibly have had an edge on the role."
