New Doctor Who Peter Capaldi will be a lot different than the previous few counterparts says Steven Moffat.
Peter Capaldi graces the cover to the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine with showrunner Steven Moffat offering the following:
The Doctor's always said he’s thousands of years old, and suddenly he’s going to look closer to what we know he secretly is. He’s going to look like an older man. A fiercer man. He won’t be the dashing young man he was a minute ago, and I think that’ll be rather exciting.
He’s always looked like Doctor Who, how has this taken us so long?! Because the moment you say his name, you go ‘Of course!’ Because he’s got the hair, and he’s got the look, he’s brilliant, he’s known to be a fan, of course it’s bloody him!
Matt Smith returns as the 11th Doctor for November's Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special and one last time before he regenerates in the Christmas Special where Peter Capaldi will first appear.
This issue of Doctor Who Magazine, which includes comments from Peter Capaldi, goes on sale this week.
