Mark Gatiss Praises “Fantastic” Peter Capaldi

Mark Gatiss has promised that Peter Capaldi will be ‘fantastic… really something’ in the next series of Doctor Who.

Chatting to the Radio Times on the red carpet at Sunday’s BAFTA awards, the long term Who writer, guest performer and fan didn’t add to what we already know about his forthcoming episode, scheduled to go out third in Series 8, but clearly feels the new Doctor is more than up to the job.

The story, already shot and featuring guest stars Ben Miller and Tom Riley, is currently the one for which we have the most informaton, what with rumours of merriment in Sherwood Forest seemingly confirmed by location snaps.

Elsewhere in the interview, Gatiss describes An Adventure in Space and Time, which missed out on the award for single drama to Channel 4’s Complicit, as a story he had wanted to tell for thirteen years, and reflects on the irony that it was those fiendish Daleks who would go on to become the Doctor’s ‘greatest friend’.


has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now. When he's not at his job working for a charity he spends his time following Hull City's fortunes, listening to Bruce Springsteen and wondering why it took thirty years too long for Doctor Who action figures to come along.
