Bill Nighy: Capaldi Casting “makes perfect sense”
Echoing the majority of Doctor Who fans sentiments when he first emerged under a cloud of celebratory confetti Bill Nighy believes that it ‘makes perfect sense’ that Peter Capaldi play the Doctor.
Nighy, who played Dr Black in Vincent and the Doctor and who last year revealed that he had turned down the role of the Doctor, said:
I think it’s one of those things you read and you think, ‘Well, of course Peter Capaldi is going to be Doctor Who, it makes perfect sense. He’s a wonderful actor, and I would think he’ll be a terrific doctor. He’ll be very funny, dry, elegant and sharp, and I think it makes perfect sense.
And we agree. And I don’t just mean those of us who’s eyes are scanning these very words.
But I will say this… Bill Nighy likes him and that guy is all kinds of cool.
