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.”

I’m sexually attracted to black older men. I’ve always had infatuations with older males. I love how masterful they are and would love to meet more older guys who want to be friends, or maybe more. :) looking for 40 50 year old men. Contact me in “Seek Younger. ℂ oM ” at “ClaireXX01”.

I hope the new guy will be someone like Rory who made the annoying companion like Amy, turn into someone likable at least tolerable. I think Clara is far less interesting than Amy so it will be harder, though.

I like Clara (Jenna). Amy could be annoying and her and Rory together could be very annoying.

I also like Capaldi. I think he’ll be a very good new Doctor; more like the actors who played the Classic Doctor Who’s.

The premiere episode was really well done.

This was an interesting start. Peter will be fabulous. He is a perfectionist and is putting his all into it.

I feel that Clara has done what she was meant to do, with Matts’ Doctor. She saved his lives. Now she is a link from the past and will soon not be necessary.

I would love to see the Silurian/Sea Devil story line be played out to its’ ultimate conclusion….that being a future where Humans and Dinos live together in harmony on the Earth. They will eventually go their separate ways on separate planets but, the Doctor is destined to help them live together. A Golden Age on Earth. Madame Vestra deserves it.
