Peter Capaldi on 'Doctor Who': There Isn't Another Television Show Like It

Peter Capaldi‘s Doctor Who will premiere on BBC America THIS WEEKEND!

The 56-year-old Scottish actor recently spoke about the rewarding experience of taking on the iconic character.

“It’s working with all of these gifted people, because the crew, the designers and the cast are all so good at what they do. To be working with people who are so great at their jobs is a wonderful thing, and it’s a highly imaginative place to be in the studio when this is all going on,” Peter shared.

He added, “It’s fabulous from the point of view that you’re doing things you would never have done in other television shows. There isn’t another television show like it, where the central character can be blown up, or materialized underneath the sea or be in outer space. So to turn up every time you start a new episode and be submerged in a totally new world is certainly one of the best things about it. To be able to have the privilege of looking after this character for a while is the best thing about it for me. It’s that you’ve been given this very precious thing, and it’s your responsibility to try and keep him aflame until the next person comes along. You’re looking after the character and it looks after you too.”

Doctor Who premieres Saturday, August 23rd on BBC America.
