Peter Capaldi Reveals All In Doctor Who Magazine 477!

In a bumper-sized 100-page issue, DWM catches up on set with the PETER CAPALDI – the new Doctor Who.

Doctor Who Magazine asked Peter how he has gone about making the part of the Doctor his own…

“Well,” says Peter, “you begin with yourself. You begin with those elements of yourself that you feel would be at home in the role. There’s an old actors’ adage that you don’t become the role, the role becomes you. It’s trying to find those parts of you that will fit with the Doctor, and understand those bits that don’t come so naturally to you, that you have to fabricate. I kept looking for people in my life who I thought had elements of the Doctor about them, and were inspirational in some ways. I composed a list of those…”

“Also, it’s recognising what’s been written,” Peter continues. “My Doctor is written slightly differently from some of the other Doctors, and the Doctor changes quite dramatically from episode to episode. Some demand more of your comedy chops, graver or more serious episodes demand a more sombre creature. All these variations have to live in the same body, in the same face. Putting all that together is tricky…”

    I wonder if “The Eye of Torment” is a 12th Doctor story.

    • avatar Ben Dransfield says:

      It is

  2. avatar Lucas W says:

    As per usual, I much prefer the outside cover than the one on the magazine itself. What a shame.

  3. avatar Al says:

    “Reveals all” – what, does he take his clothes off or something?
