Doctor Who: Series 8 DVD Launch Q&A Clips

The BBC has released two clips from the recent Series 8 DVD launch event in London. The special event was hosted by Frank Skinner and attended by a number of fans who won a BBC Worldwide competition. The event featured a Q&A with Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and showrunner Steven Moffat, along with Michelle Gomez and Samuel Anderson.

Capaldi revealed that he once turned down the chance to audition for the role of the Eighth Doctor in the 1996 TV Movie, a part which instead went to Paul McGann:

“I loved the show so much that I didn’t want to have anything to do with it, unless it was me. I didn’t want the disappointment of going for something that I would never get.”

Additionally, Michelle Gomez discussed her experience of being cast as Missy, and the big reveal of the character in Dark Water:

“When my agent called to say that I would be taking on this role, I couldn’t quite get my head around it. I thought, being the first female Master is up there with being Hilary Clinton running for female president! It’s that big in my household.”

More clips from the Series 8 DVD launch are expected to be released soon, so stay tuned!
