Prince Charles And The Duchess of Cornwall Go Sci-Fi With Trip To Dr. Who Studios
The royal is a huge fan of the show
Prince Charles took his wife Camilla to the Dr. Who Studios while on their annual summer tour in Wales. And while there, Charles tried his hand at being an evil genius, uttering the famous “Exterminate” phrase through a Dalek microphone.
Prince Charles Uttered The Famous 'Exterminate' Line At The Studios
"I haven't thought about how I could weave a meeting between the Doctor and the royal family. But Prince Charles's attempt at being a Dalek was great,” said the show’s creator, Steve Moffat. "There would be a part in the show for him if he wanted it." While there is no official word on the next Dr. Who – since Matt Smith announced he would be stepping down - Rory Kinnear is the favourite for the role, so much so, that the bookies stopped taking bets on him after a flurry of support for the Skyfall star.
Smith said: "The Prince was lovely and a charming bloke. He took quite an interest in the Tardis's controls and asked a lot of questions about it. He told me and Jenna that he'd been a big fan of the show since he was 15 - which we didn't know. The other thing which stood out for me is he had fantastic shoes."
Prince Charles - what a life
So, with Prince Charles trying his hand as a Dalek, does the royal have what it takes? "He's got the makings of a future Doctor!" joked Smith.
