Regular Doctor Who Personnel Changes “Brutal” Says Jenna
Most interesting was her description of the show’s cast turnaround being “so brutal” – something that we wonder might be a sign that the actress herself is perhaps considering moving on soon.
On the matter of the forthcoming regeneration – in which the Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor will be replaced by Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth:
I knew it was going to be sad, but it was really traumatic. It was very emotional and overwhelming.
It’s a strange thing [but] it’s the nature of the show. Matt leaves, Peter arrives in his costume and the scene carries on. You just keep going – that’s the show.
Peter Capaldi’s casting has proved that Doctor Who is still considered a great lead role, even for older actors (even if they did grow up as fans) and his appearance should be enough to whet appetites for the next full series.
