Rory is A Time Lord
Time Master, sorry. 🙂
He’s a Time Master who railed against the Non-Interference policy of his Council
FIRST TIME LORD: You have heard the charge against you that you have repeatedly broken our most important law of non-interference in the affairs of other planets, what have you to say – do you admit these actions?
DOCTOR: I not only admit them, I am proud of them! While you have been content merely to observe the evil in the galaxy I have been fighting against it!
He stole a Time Machine.
He kidnapped a Teacher and some others.
An Alternate Universe version of Rory is a Time Lord!…Master… 🙂
TIME CAN BE REWRITTEN!
(and Superman is now the Atom?) 🙂
“When they pitched the idea of the show, I was like, ‘This is very close to ‘Doctor Who,'” Darvill told Headlines & Global News while promoting “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow ” at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena, Calif.
“We had various discussions and, obviously, it deals with similar themes like time travel. I’m an Englishman in a long coat and [there’s] a time machine, so there’s no getting away from that,” he added. “But, as the series goes on, I’m pleased you will notice more and more differences between Rip Hunter and the Doctor. They are very different.”
For fans of “Arrow,” “The Flash” and “Doctor Who,” the series is highly recommended and, if you want to learn more about the show, continue reading HNGN’s interview with Darvill below.
So, you are playing a doctor again?
Yeah, I’ve been promoted. I know, and it’s a complete mystery to me.
Did you kind of giggle because of the similarities?
I did, but there is also a concern there as I didn’t want it to be close to that. I’ve been so thankful because we were just brought on with the promise of, “This is going to be really good.” I’ve been really lucky with the scripts that we’ve gotten and, as you learn more about Rip’s character, it’s interesting, dark and kind of led by ego and wanting to do the right thing but not quite knowing what the consequences of his actions are. I think that’s a fascinating character to explore, and not at all like any character I’ve had the chance to play before. That was the main reason for me wanting this role: I’m often cast as the guy who makes comments in the corner or the sidekick, and it’s really nice to be offered a role where I get to lead the charge. That’s a very new thing for me, and I’m really enjoying it.
Did you feel any pressure?
I probably should have, but no. Working with these guys, you are only as strong as the people you’re working with and we’re just having a lot of fun. Obviously, there’s a pressure to make it good and we all egg each other on. It’s a very encouraging group of people.
Has there been any backlash from the more passionate “Doctor Who” fans?
No. Everyone has been really positive about the whole thing. I think people are enjoying the similarities, and I’m not going to stand here and say there are no similarities because there are, but what’s great is the show is so totally different from that show. (HNGN)
