Peter Capaldi was an unabashed Doctor Who fanboy growing up—he sent in Who-related letters to the Radio Times as a kid—and he’s still an unabashed Doctor Who fanboy now. But no matter how often he displays his Whovian credentials (besides from, you know, actually being The Doctor), it’s wonderful to watch every time.
Speaking to a Brazilian website, Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi noted that the BBC has cast a new companion for the Doctor, and we should know very soon who that is.
We’ve known ever since that he joined Doctor Who that Peter Capaldi isn’t just a fantastic actor and a Doctor Who fan, but also a delightful artist. So what happens when The Doctor himself gets to sketch, err, himself? You get this.
It’s not every day you get to hear about a TV star critizing their own broadcaster, but Peter Capaldi has lashed out at the BBC for not caring about Doctor Who enough—not in terms of its content, or promotion... but when the show airs in the UK.
Ever since it was announced that season 10 of Doctor Who will be showrunner Steven Moffat’s last, doubts have been cast over the longevity of Peter Capaldi’s tenure as the titular Time Lord. Hell, those rumors have actually been swirling around for even longer than that. But apparently the BBC wants Capaldi around for…
It’s probably not a huge shock, but Maisie Williams killed dead the rumors that she would not become the Doctor’s latest companion, meaning we’ve seen the last of her series 9 character Ashildr—at least for now.
Last Friday’s Doctor Who Christmas special was a fascinating look at the contradictions of River Song. But it also gave her some much-needed closure, and her pairing with Peter Capaldi finally made the Doctor’s relationship with River feel like it had some weight.
Aww. In Marvel’s current “All-New, All-Different” comics, Peter Parker is the head of a global business that also helps Spider-Man confront threats all over the world. In an upcoming trip to London in the book, artist Alex Ross celebrated Spidey’s British adventure with a variant cover starring a familiar face... but…
The Twelfth Doctor’s barnstorming speech about the horror of war in “The Zygon Inversion” is already being hailed as the breakout moment of Peter Capaldi’s tenure on Doctor Who. But like most things Doctor Who related, it’s just as delightful, if not moreso, when the Eighth Doctor himself gets to deliver it.
This was another odd episode of Doctor Who, a show which seems to be trying to reinvent itself not through radical change but through stylistic drift. Last year, Doctor Who had some insane experiments, but this year it’s just doing a slew of two-parters about the Doctor stumbling through messes of his own creation.
Tonight’s episode of Doctor Who sees the Doctor in an impossible situation, where his fate appears already sealed. In other words, it’s another day at the office. But this time around, the Doctor is only able to find a way out when he’s given the proper motivation: an even worse looming disaster.
Tonight’s Doctor Who episode continues the show’s recent trend of deconstructing the Daleks, his armored “space Nazi” adversaries. And just like with the recent “Asylum of the Daleks” and “Into the Dalek,” we discover that Dalek nature is both sadder and more complicated than we’d previously thought.
Tonight’s Doctor Who season premiere is all about two of the show’s most iconic villains. We (and the Doctor) see them in a new light, and it’s enough to make you wonder if the show’s endless battle against evil is actually something more complicated. And if so, what does that mean for our hero, the Doctor?
Despite being Doctor Who’s Doctor a whole year now, Peter Capaldi’s not had much luck getting a decent figure of himself—the first one was absolutely dreadful, and although there’s a pretty decent 1/6th scale version on the way, it’s a lot pricier than most people are willing to pay. Enter this new, 5” figure...…
One of the biggest surprises of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary special was the brief moment that Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor joined all 13 Doctors in saving Gallifrey—but now it looks like the next season of the show will explore that cameo even further, thanks to some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey shenanigans.
Peter Capaldi’s first year on Doctor Who was layered with a lot of questions about the morality of the Doctor’s adventures. And one idea that came up was the notion that the Doctor had made the Daleks stronger in the course of fighting them. Capaldi tells io9 that the Doctor absolutely believes he made the Daleks…
In this interview with Armando Iannucci, the TV vet mentions that he's spoken with Steven Moffat about writing an episode of Doctor Who. Nothing's confirmed, but it could be a fun reunion for Iannucci and Peter Capaldi — who before becoming a Time Lord starred on Iannucci's political satire The Thick of It.
Doctor Who is certainly no stranger to crossover events, but now Titan Comics' series based on the show are getting in on the action too! For the first time this summer, the Twelfth, Eleventh and Tenth Doctors will come together for some time-travlling shenanigans.
Every time a new actor takes over the role of the Doctor, the mysterious alien time-traveler on Doctor Who, it's always a bit of an adjustment. The expectations are high — and that goes double for beloved actor Peter Capaldi, who took the role last year. And here's the scene where Capaldi proved he could own the role.
