Re: Eccleston turned down chance to be in 50th Anniversary story
...and Briggs is doing the Ice Warrior voices and recorded those only last week!
But nearly as insane as this!
Contracting that late? Yes, that would be. But I don't think that it's insane to record that late. It's certainly cutting things close to the wire, but they would have been able to cut and do most of the mix with whatever temp voice track they have in place. (Presumably from the actors on set? I can't find a good picture of the costumes, but it looks like they have normal humanoid mouths. It certainly doesn't look like the Daleks or Cybusmen where you need things flashing in time to Briggs' voice...)
