So with John Hurt popping up in Doctor Who, I thought people might be amused by this clip from much earlier in his career. This is from I, Claudius, where John Hurt played the mad Emperor Caligula, and Derek Jacobi played Claudius. So you could say that the John Hurt Doctor has met the Derek Jacobi Master. ;)

I have long wondered how many takes it took to get through that scene. And what John Hurt thought when he was first presented with that portion of the script.
