Big Spoilers From Yesterdays Doctor Who Filming (28-08-09) UPDATED
Here are some spoilers from yesterday by Alun.Vega.
As far as I can tell, the story so far is that Bill Patersons character is some kind of Professor, a boffin working for Churchill during WW2. He believes hes invented the Daleks as a new super-weapon, though hes a bit fuzzy on how the idea came to him. The Daleks are stringing the Professor along, playing docile and very British.
Dalek: Would you care for some tea?
Churchill doesn't care where the Professor's "ironclads" came from, only that they have the potential to defeat the Nazis and win the war.
Churchill: Death to our enemies, Death to the 3rd Reich!
The Doctor: Yes, yes, and death to everyone else too.
The Doctor is trying to convince the Professor and Churchill not to unleash the Daleks, but they're not taking him seriously (possibly because he seems implausibly young?) hence his growing frustration and anger, as he turns on the playing-it-innocent Daleks:
The Doctor: I sent you back into the void. I saved the whole of reality from you. I am the Doctor, and you are the DALEKS!
The Professor (Bill Paterson) seems to warm to Amy, as they're both Scottish. I believe the Professor says: "Are you from the Islands?" Very sweet.
My reading of this line is, he seems not only to be trying to convince Churchill and the Professor of the Daleks true nature, but also reminding himself of who he is: the Doctor!
Amy Pond is definitely 100% Scottish. She has a soft accent, so her voice didn't carry far, making it hard to hear anything she said.
We glimpsed someone looking very Churchillian from the side, yesterday lunchtime, but didn't recognise the actor.
Major Thanx to Alun.Vega for this!
He has some photographs here too :)
