“What I’d tell my younger self:…” (words of wisdom from Peter Capaldi)

“What I’d tell my younger self:…” (words of wisdom from Peter Capaldi)

With Fires of Pompeii they offered me the part and I didn’t even read the script and said that I just want to do this. But my wife said “No, you mustn’t. You are a professional actor. You have to read the script and see what it’s like.” David was great. He showed me the TARDIS which I found quite moving. I didn’t realise that a few years later I would be “driving” it myself. It is a very wonderful place to be.

Peter Capaldi IS The Doctor. He really understands the show and who the character is. Everything he says here is absolutely true and obvious when one actually pays attention to the show. And anyone who doesn't like Peter as The Doctor because "he's too angry", or "he's too dark", hasn't been paying attention.

Peter Capaldi has become to the new series what Tom Baker was to the older one. The "definite article" you might say.  I have been watching Doctor Who since the Tom Baker era and will miss Peter's portrayal of the Doctor as much as I fondly look back on Tom’s.

A fuzz pedal. No. A wah-wah pedal. I think he’s been trying to make one for some time, because the Doctor would always rather make his own, but I think the technology of the wah-wah pedal has been eluding him. Peter on what the Doctor would want from Father Christmas (the Guardian)

TWELVE - looking a little bit Time Lord Victorious. I think I'll be okay with him being older than the last 3.
