WATCH: Kenneth Branagh Chats ‘Doctor Who’ on ‘Craig Ferguson’

Kenneth Branagh on 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'

Watch as a shared love of Doctor Who brings an Irishman and a Scotsman together: Kenneth Branagh joined Craig Ferguson on last night’s Late Late Show (watch Part 1 of the interview), and the conversation soon shifted to all matters Whovian. The Thor director revealed he’s a big fan of Matt Smith, and Craig suggested that Kenneth book a meeting with saucy Scottish companion (and previous Ferguson guest), Karen Gillan. “Oh a big-timey director like you would be interested. This girl, I think she’d be a movie star!”

Spoiler: there’s a somewhat cringe-worthy TARDIS double-entendre at 6:44. Just in case you need another one for your repertoire. And you can never have too many.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
