Think the Doctor Who/Spider-Man connection stops at Marvel Comics' writer Dan Slott's obsession with all things Timelord (and homage to the good Doctor in a two part story that ran earlier this year)? Think again: Andrew Garfield, the Amazing Spider-Man himself, appeared on two episodes of Nu-Who, way back in 2007... And BBC America's Anglophenia blog got the scoop:
In the video, Garfield remembers his time starring in two episodes with David Tennant - "Daleks in Manhattan" and "Evolution of the Daleks." We didn't remember this ourselves because we've tried very hard to block the memory of these two episodes from our minds... Though the idea of Gangster Daleks in the 1930s might have seemed like a good idea at the time... Well, actually it didn't even seem like a good idea at the time, so there you go.
Garfield played Frank, a young ragamuffin who joins up with the Doctor and Martha Jones - the then current Companion - before getting captured by evil Daleks in the Cult of Skaro, who hope to evolve the human race into Dalek human hybrids or something. Frank was left to live in Hooverville in poverty by the Doctor after having his life horribly ruined, so just another typical day for a guest star on Doctor Who.
Also in the video, Garfield has nothing but praise for his buddy - and current Doctor - Matt Smith, so fingers crossed we get to see classic TV character Frank sometimes again soon.
