You two were so adorable!
my babies oh god they’re holding hands ;A;
Not to mention she’s kissing his shoulder! Talk about chemistry!
I always wanted to know if they really got along since he did not have a good time being the doctor.
There are a few behind-the-scenes videos that show them getting along just fine, being goofy with each other and clearly having a good time.
Their relationship couldn’t have been too icy, since rumors were floated by the press that they had an affair while she was married. He denied it pretty firmly.
He didn’t hate being the Doctor, he hated the long hours and the rude attitude of a particular director.
But from all accounts, his relationship with the cast and crew was otherwise good. Noel Clarke (Mickey) recently said that he preferred some aspects of Chris’s performance to Tennant’s, likening what Chris did with Who with what Daniel Craig did for the Bond series, which is very high praise indeed.
Bless you sir, the dark smudge on my doctor has been lifted away.
He actually gave a more recent interview where he hinted that he somewhat regretted leaving (he says he left on principle because of the less-than-savory working conditions due to a disorganized production team) and feels that 2-3 seasons would’ve been the right amount to properly get under the skin of such a character since it’s a hard part to get right.
Salt in the wounds, but there you have it. I don’t think he’s ever said that he hated doing it or hates being associated with it.
