"It's great to walk in many different alleys," he said. "If it's a good script, whether it's heroes or villains or anything else, that's the challenge and that's what you look forward to."
He was also asked to name his favourite episode of the season. David had not the completed episode at that point, but based on the script alone he nominated episode 9, AKA Sin Bin.
