Arthur Darvill loved getting to explore the negatives of travelling with the Doctor in 'Doctor Who' in this weekend's episode of the BBC series

Arthur Darvill enjoyed spending time exploring his back-story on 'Doctor Who'.

The 30-year-old actor - who plays Rory Williams in the BBC sci-fi show - loved having time out away from "travelling" with the Doctor (Matt Smith) with his on-screen girlfriend Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) in the forthcoming episode 'The Power of Three' and thinks viewers will be able to see another side to his character.

He said: "It was really good to spend some time playing the Ponds at home.

"Travelling with the Doctor has its drawbacks and you get to explore some of that, something we haven't previously done. I think it is a really good episode."

However, he would not be keen to have the Doctor as a real life house guest because he would never be quiet.

He joked: "The Doctor would be terrible. No matter how much he cleaned or made life fun, he could destroy your whole house in a matter of seconds. He's not one to have around if you want a quiet life."

'The Power of Three' airs on Saturday (22.09.12).
