Director Steve Hughes, the man behind the camera for the penultimate tale in Doctor Who Series 6 Part 2, has been chatting with Blogtor about his episode Closing Time. The story, featuring the Cybermen, was written by Gareth Roberts (The Lodger, The Unicorn & The Wasp amongst others) and sees the return of James Corden as Craig Owens (last seen in The Lodger).

“It’s like Abbot and Costello meet the Cybermen”

Speaking to Blogtor, Hughes revealed that Closing Time is “very funny,” explaining, “Matt [Smith] and James [Corden] are a great double act. It’s like Abbot and Costello meet the Cybermen, sort of. Matt and James work really well together because the Doctor really enjoys having ‘a mate'”.

The Episode 12 director added, “There’s a lot of humour in Closing Time but there’s some real emotion in there too. I grew up watching the show, I’m a genuine fan and working on the show really was a dream come true.”
