We tracked down River Song’s other husband – King Hydroflax – aka Greg Davies, star of Man Down, Cuckoo, and The Inbetweeners...
Greg’s not just playing any body...

Hello, Greg. How are you today?

“I’m very well, thanks. I’m on a very loud Lakeside, playing celebrity darts [for the BBC’s Sport Relief].”

Amazing! We’re here to talk aboutThe Husbands of River Song. What attracted you to the role of his Infinite Majesty, King Hydroflax of the Final Cluster? Was it his name?

“[Laughs] That’s exactly what his name was! What attracted me to the part was… quite frankly, being offered a part in Doctor Who. I would have played whatever they offered me, but the fact that they asked me to play a giant murderous robot doubled the appeal! Hand on heart, I’d say I was sick with excitement. It’s one of those shows that you can’t quite believe that you’re a part of. I can’t believe that they allowed me to do it. It’s a cliché, but all actors want to play the villain. It means a great deal to me, to be in such an iconic show. It’s such a thrill. It’s not very often you get to say that it’s a real honour to be in something, but it really is.”
