Peter Capaldi is the twelfth Doctor Who

Mark Gatiss Promises “Thrilling” Doctor Who Debut For Capaldi

Doctor Who writer and actor Mark Gatiss has described this week how new Time Lord Peter Capaldi will appear in a thrilling Series 8 opener.

Talking to Digital Spy with a quote that may well make Private Eye‘s ‘Pseud’s Corner’, he made mention of the difference in the “energy” of Peter Capaldi as opposed to his immediate predecessors Matt Smith and David Tennant.

“He’s older which changes everything – it’s amazing what a change does!

“Matt was sublime and I was very sorry to see him go, but it’s also great to have a change – as it has always been with the Doctor.”

Gatiss continued, referring to how a new incarnation changes the rules by playing with viewer’s expectations about how the character might react in a given situation.

“The Doctor’s always the Doctor – but you can have a lot of fun playing with people’s expectations. Everyone knows how the previous Doctor would react in any given situation – and now you just don’t know!”

We can’t wait to see Capaldi in action. How long is it now…?
