Samuel Anderson is keen to reprise his role as Orson Pink, but he wouldn’t mind seeing an alternate universe Danny either.
“I do remind them that Orson is alive. #BringBackOrsonPink,” he told the Radio Times.
Reflecting on Danny’s demise he said: “Steven Moffat put me away in style. I’ve lost a few jobs in my time but never gone out in such a blaze of glory.”
His idea for returning: “Maybe in an alternate universe? I wouldn’t mind approaching [Danny] in a different way. Or maybe just come back as Orson Pink because then it changes the dynamic between him and the Doctor.
He adds: “If it’s Orson Pink I think the relationship would be totally different because instead of a soldier – which is the kind of person the Doctor can’t bear – you’ve got another scientist who could be quite interesting with their relationship. And then instead of it being a love interest with Clara and Danny, it would be a family affair with grandmother and grandson but at the same age.”
Anderson also believes that Danny may be gone, but not forgotten in Series 9: “Steven is very clever with the arcs that he writes and I suppose that the relationship with Danny and Clara was integral to how the relationship with Clara and the new Doctor was going to go. I imagine there will be something there [in series nine] for sure.”
