The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 2]

Part 1 of this photoset is available here

It seemed appropriate to post photos from David Tennant’s first episode on the day of Peter Capaldi’s first episode. 

There are just sooooo many great behind-the-scenes photos from this special (even though the Doctor was unconscious for most of it)

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article for DWM #365

[filming the first scene where the Doctor stumbles out of the TARDIS]
David and Billie step into the TARDIS and close the door behind them.  Standing outside in the rain, we can still hear their excited chatter.
    David:  “I can’t believe this!  I’m inside the TARDIS!”
    Billie:  “Sorry, it’s a wee bit cramped in here.”
    Then we hear a girlish giggle.  It’s David’s.

[filming the balcony/pilot fish scene]
"You can write in Doctor Who Magazine," says David, showing me the plastic imitation screwdriver that he’s been given, "that they don’t trust me with the real prop yet. Look," he cries, "it’s a fake!"

[filming the swordfight]
    “Have you got padding on your arse?” Noel asks David.
    “No, it’s all mine,” he replies.
    “Do you think that’s the paparazzi?” Billie asks her co-stars, pointing at a speedboat on the water.
    “Maybe it’s the News of the World,” Noel shrugs.  “Those boats have been circling all morning.”
    “I’m going to show them my arse!” declares David, standing up and promptly pulling down his pyjama bottoms, mooning out to sea.  Unbeknownst to David, a make-up artist is standing right behind him.  The poor lady gets quite the eyeful.
    “Oh jings,” gasps David, “I’m so sorry.”
    “It’s okay,” she stutters.  “It’s nothing I haven’t seen before.”

“He isn’t!” Rose leaned forward, eyes widening, elbows sliding along the table in the galley. 

“He is!” The Doctor in blue said around a laugh and sat down next to her.

“No.” She looked at the other Doctor. His lips were pressed together as if he was holding back a smile. 

“‘Fraid so,” he said. 

“But how does he turn into the Face of Boe?” She looked between the two men. They shrugged simultaneously. “Is he even aging? He looks the same and it’s been a hundred years for him!”
