Twelfth Doctor Audition Script

This is the audition script for the Twelfth Doctor. I just can’t imagine anyone but Matt saying this!

Inside the TARDIS. The Doctor checks out the new body while Clara watches. It’s only been a few minutes, so they’re both still adjusting.


Doctor: Right then, eyesight. Not bad, bit blue. Ears – not pointy, right way up, more or less level. Face – well, I’ve got one. Oh no! French!

Clara: French?

Doctor: I’ve deleted French! Plus all cookery skills, and the breast stroke. And hopping. Never mind hopping, who needs to hop. Ohhh, the kidneys are interesting. Never had that before – interesting kidneys.

Clara: Are you all right?

Doctor: I don’t know, do I look all right?

Clara: I don’t know.

Doctor: How’s the face? Seems all right from the inside. Nice action, responsive. Bit less heft on the chin. How is it?

Clara: It’s . . . okay.

Doctor: Okay?

Clara: It’s a bit . . . you know.

Doctor: No I don’t, I haven’t seen it yet.

Clara: Maybe it’s just new.

Doctor: Have you changed height?

Clara: No.

Doctor: You sure?

Clara: It’s you, your height, you’re the one that’s changed.

Doctor: And look at your nose.

Clara: What about my nose?

Doctor: It was really cute, I loved your nose, you should have kept it.

Clara: I did, it’s the same nose, it’s the same all of me. You’re the one who’s . . . regenerated, whatever you call it.

Doctor: Are you wearing a smell?

Clara: Do you mean perfume?

Doctor: Yeas, I suppose it could be perfume.

Clara: You’ve always liked that perfume, you said so.

Doctor: No I didn’t. That was the Doctor.

Clara: You’re the Doctor.

Doctor: Yeah, I suppose I am. That’s going to take a bit of getting used to.

Clara: Yeah, it really is.
