Smith had originally planned to be a professional footballer: he played for the youth teams of Northampton Town (where he grew up), Leicester City and Nottingham Forest as a teenager, before a serious back injury ended his career, and a drama teacher got him interested in acting.
It’s a vastly different background to that of Isherwood, who was gay, public-school educated, and left for the hedonistic atmosphere of Weimar era Berlin in his twenties to escape the repressiveness of English society between the wars, and a suffocating relationship with his mother (played in the drama by Lindsay Duncan).
‘I’ve got a different background to the Doctor,’ Smith notes when I mention it.

A month later, in London, he arrives late for our interview, striding into the room, apologising, he’d been sitting in a car stuck in traffic. He’s giving off great bursts of energy, and he’s wearing a huge, loose-knit jumper, of a sort that you would have to be very cool or very famous to get away with. ‘I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking.’ Did he do the voice?
