Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

If people only knew how much this guy LOVED the show when he was younger you'd understand his smile.

This is like a dream come true for him


He has been a fan since the very beggining, meaning he saw the Hartnell and Troughton episodes that are still missing.

He tried to sieze control over the Doctor Who fanclub throughout the early 1970s.

Decided to make a fanclub by himself, which was joined only by two people. And one of said people was his brother. The other was some guy who sent 20 pence to join.

Annoyed the hell out of DWM and BBC up until the mid-1980s.*

Went through a punk phase, formed a band, wrote lyrics influenced by Doctor Who and dropped acid with bandmate Craig Ferguson.*

Got into acting for the sake of becoming the Doctor.
Has been auditioning repeteadly since the 1980s to get the role. So far, he lost again McCoy, McGann, Eccleston, Tennant and Smith.

Almost left acting altogether back in 2005, as he felt his roles weren't good enough and if it was not for him ranting to Armando Ianucci (producer of The Thick of It/In The Loop) during a dinner in Armando's house which was recorded, he wouldn't have landed the role.*

Went against Hugh Laurie to play House. Lost.*

Built a Dalek for a school project at 15.

Damn, if nothing else, he's persistent.

Honestly, I'm glad Hugh Laurie won it. He was amazing in that role.

Samurai8472, what's you're source for the above facts? Not that I don't trust you, but I always question sources.

I'm looking forward to Capaldi's appearance on CraigyFerg's show. I expect one will say to the other, "So, are we still tripping on acid, or is this really happening?" In a Scottish accent, of course.

If that story is true, I hope he is reallly good in the role, cause it sounds like they will have to drag him out kicking and screaming when the times comes to regenerate again.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Well Tennant was a huge, self-proclaimed DW fan, and he still got burnt out and left after 4 years, so I'm sure it'll happen with Capaldi eventually as well.

The kid wouldn't budge









Miller continues the story in his book.

“During the next phone call to Sarah, I asked how things were going with Peter Capaldi. ‘Oh god, I wish someone would sort him out.’ Then she paused. ‘Actually, he lives in Scotland too – could you pop over to Glasgow and sort him out for me?’ I giggled nervously, quickly finished the call, and worriedly headed back to the house. Was she being serious? Did she actually want me to go over to Glasgow and ‘Sort him out’? Was I to become Doctor Who‘s hitman?… Seriously, I worried about this for days.”

True, but I get the impression that Peter Capaldi is a much, much, much bigger Whovian than David Tennant.

Yea, if a kid is so well known to the Production/Office staff that they joke about sending a hitman to take care of the kid, you gotta class that as Superfan or Uberfan.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I think the other thing to consider is that Tennant was very near the start of his career when he got the Who gig, however much he loved the role he wanted/needed to move on and do other things. Capaldi is, absolutely no offence intended, nearer the end of his career than the beginning. He probably isn’t in a place where he feels he needs to ‘crack’ America, or expand his range to show people what he can do. People already know what he can do.

So long as he proves popular in the role, and so long as the shooting schedule doesn’t take its toll or he doesn’t have to leave for unforeseen personal reasons, I could see him staying in the role longer than Tennant or Smith. I’m not talking Tom length here, but maybe something akin to Pertwee.

That is a lot of ifs though probably best to take it a series at a time!

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I think it would be tragic if we had another Colin baker situation with Capaldi. Or probably closer to the Hartnel situation where he gets fired. Whether it be because of unpopularity or more tragically, he gets too old or ill to play the doctor anymore. Might happen.

What a fucking bizzare statement based on... nothing, especially when you consider that in age, he is a contemporary (in age) of Tom cruise, Jonny Depp, George Clooney, Viggo Mortensen (same age) etc.

55 in 2014 with no preexisting health condition is not 55 in 1964...

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

William Hartnell also drank and smoke a considerable amount so he had plenty of health problems when he started the show.

What was the line in Adventure in Time and Space "he's not as old as he looks"?
