Radio Times 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi Cover

Radio Times 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi Cover

With thanks to the Radio Times…

In this week’s Radio Times, on sale Tuesday 13 May 2014 (for listings 17-23 May 2014) Steven Moffat recalls writing the Day of the Doctor, revealing it was the most “difficult” and “terrifying” thing he has ever written and reveals why he chose Peter Capaldi to be the new Doctor

Steven Moffat writes: “When you choose a Doctor, you want somebody who is utterly compelling, attractive in a very odd way. None of the Doctors are conventionally attractive, but they’re all arresting. Handsome men don’t quite suit. Matt Smith’s a young, good-looking bloke from one angle but is actually the strangest looking man from another. You need that oddity; you need somebody who is carved out of solid star, really. Doctor Who is a whopping great star vehicle, despite the fact it changes star every so often.”
