Neil Gaiman's Doctor Who script readthrough

The readthrough of Neil Gaiman's Doctor Who script took place in Cardiff today, with production to begin on the episode within the next few weeks. In attendance were Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill, along with showrunner Steven Moffat, director Richard Clarke, and Neil himself.

The writer posted the following on his blog:

What would you like to know?
Actually it doesn't matter what you'd like to know, all I'll say is that the table read was pretty amazing, the guest star or stars will be fabulous, Matt's great, Arthur's wonderful and I never got to say hullo to Karen (who was amazing).

I had a meeting after the readthrough with the producers and director, pinpointing stuff that needs fixing or clarifying ("So we need to change that without making it longer or spending any money. Right."). But nothing that needs rewriting is anything other than cosmetic, and I should get it done tomorrow or Thursday.

(Favourite quote from S. Moffat: "Look, you understand that, and I understand that, but we're Science Fiction people. The other 100% of the audience may not get it.")

The plan is still that it's the third episode of Next Season's Doctor Who. In case you have no idea what I'm talking about.

The Doctor...

"All of time and space; everywhere and anywhere; every star that ever was. Where do you want to start?"
