Moffat: 'Matt Smith like a drunk giraffe'

BBC

Doctor Who producer Steven Moffat has likened Matt Smith to a "drunk giraffe".

Talking to Doctor Who Magazine, Moffat revealed that the Eleventh Doctor has a habit of breaking things on set.

"He knocks over coffees, falls over, breaks props! When he was first handed the brand new sonic screwdriver on the first day of filming, I turned to Piers [Wenger, executive producer], and I said, 'I'm going to start a book on how long it takes him to break it'

"And, as I was saying it, the prop man was walking past me with the sonic screwdriver in two bits! I thought, 'He's done it already!'. Straight away, he'd broken it!"

He added: "I described him recently as 'walking like a drunk giraffe,' which has caused him some concern. But he does! Actually, that's true of Karen [Gillan] as well. It's hilarious when the two of them have to do shaky floor acting!"
