Peter Capaldi Says He Has 'Doctor Who' DNA & We Believe Him

Peter Capaldi and co-star Jenna Coleman wave to the fans like royalty at the last Doctor Who premiere held at the Odeon Leicester Square in London, England on Saturday afternoon (August 23).

The 56- and 28-year-old actors were joined by new co-star Samuel Anderson, and show runner Steven Moffatt for the event.

“It does add to the pressure because you’re hugely aware of how well the role has been played by previous incumbents, but at the same time you have a sort of relationship with it that that doesn’t have to be acted,” Peter shared about being a Doctor Who fan before becoming the actual Doctor.

He added, “It’s a knowledge and a closeness to it that takes you a long way down the road. You almost instinctively know what it is. You can recognize what it is and what it should be, because it’s in your DNA.”
