:D LOVE David Hewlett....
Great interview guys, as always :D
Seems like everyone is commenting on how different the back end of season 2 is. I thought it was an interesting perspective that now things are falling apart a bit because everyone has their own and differing agendas cos now they're all there because they WANT to be, rather than being trapped there.

Hey! I just figured it out! I thought you'd put some really cool spacey sounding effects in the background every so often, but it's that train running above the trailers isn't it! :rolleyes: :D


(and I just have to say this) You know?? ;) :p :D

Awesome interview, thank you! :D I've been wondering why he doesn't seem to show up for many cons. He's got good reasons though... *sighs*

Mars was awesome. If we were allowed cameras I would've taken tons of pictures of him. So, so sweet. I actually sat on the floor next to him so I could stroke his fur throughout the entire interview. He eventually started snoring ... loudly. I hope David still has him.

Good interview. yet another interview from early from the season. So David, 2 question for ya: How many more interviews from this visit to the set and when can we expect the Ben and Joe interviews from a couple months back?

And for the rest of you wondering what David mentioned about what happened at that convention, here's the excerpt from the Rachel interview:

No, I mean, they've been really great. I haven't had any bizarre experiences. But I will tell you that in London David [Hewlett] was signing beside me. At one point a very exuberant fan grabbed him and planted one on him.

So this is part of a whole set visit (missed that bit) now that maybe explains the time thing. ;)

For the simple reason that Darren and I have lives, and that it takes some time to process more than a dozen interviews. We really are at the mercy of the production schedule the day we arrive. we were very lucky to get the material we did, as opposed to last time when Darren barely got half that. It kinda blew us away, and we'll be better prepared the next time we get to visit the sets.

And not to worry. The next interview you will see will be barely two weeks old.

I assume this is "Mars"/David/Dalek. :eek: :D

Oh, that's Mars. He's really old. His hips are giving out so he has to be helped every time he dismounts from the trailer for a pee. That's why I'm worried David no longer has him.

Thanks so much for the interview! I love it to find such treats right after getting up in the morning! :)

Oh, that's Mars. He's really old. His hips are giving out so he has to be helped every time he dismounts from the trailer for a pee. That's why I'm worried David no longer has him. Oh no. That's so sad. I hope he's still alive. But if he's still alive I hope he doesn't have to suffer too much. Such a cute dog! :(
(That's why I could never have a pet. I already cried my eyes out after one of my goldfish died...)

By the way, at the beginning of the interview one can read that DH adopted Mars. Does that mean he doesn't have him for such a long time yet? Or was it Jane's dog first and DH 'adopted' him when they met?

Bye, A.

So. Much. Love. Interviews rock my socks off, and David Hewlett is possibly one of the coolest people alive.

It's interesting how different Hewlett and McKay are to listen too. A lot of McKay's mannerisms can be attributed to DH, but their personalities and speaking style are much different. Heh. I'd like to see what would happen if Rodney met David Hewlett. He'd probably berate him for all of the bad science on the show.

Great interview David. Appreciate you taking the time you do to get these interviews. :)

The interview really showed how different DH is from RM but yet very similar.

See you in Vancouver - yipee :D
