Doctor Who’s darkness! Michael Jayston speaks to us about playing the Valeyard in this week’s interview.

The Doctor has always had a dark side to him, and back in the 1986 serial ‘Trial of a Time Lord’, that darkness took form. Yes, the Valeyard, the amalgamation of all the Doctor’s negative attributes and impulses. A mysterious and terrifying character played to perfection by Michael Jayston, with whom I had a lovely interview!
