“‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ (1973 Pink Floyd album), my dad got me into that quite early,” he said. “It’s such a magic piece of music: mad and clever and bold.”
He described Nas‘ 1994 album ‘Ilmatic’ as, “a really seminal album from my teens. ‘NY State Of Mind’ is one of my favourite tracks ever.”
Of Radiohead he said: “They’ve been a real influence on my imaginative mind. I can muddle through ‘High And Dry’ on the guitar, although I’m actually better on the piano. I asked for a piano in the TARDIS, but it hasn’t happened. I’d love to see the Doctor rock up and play, but it’d have to be done in an inventive and silly way.”
The new series of Doctor Who debuted with an Easter special on April 3, and continues this weekend (April 10).
