Moffat: Capaldi Not A “Quirky young man”
Put simply, they wanted a change; think of it as a reverse Peter Davison, if you will…
Every time I was at a TV do and Peter was there, he’d come over to talk about Doctor Who and he was the first to congratulate Matt. I started thinking: what if that genius actor might actually say ‘yes’?
He’s right, of course. Although looking at the image above, perhaps we’re going to get a quirky old man instead…?
But what of the children, Steven? Won’t someone think of the poor, young souls who will cry when their Doctor, Matt Smith, melts away? Moffat recalls his own initial dislike of Jon Pertwee, before observing:
I always resented the intruder but then after a while, I forgot there had been one before him.
Have you had trouble adjusting to a new Doctor (in the show, we mean, not at your local surgery)? Let us know below!
