Mark Gatiss on Capaldi: ‘He’ll Change Everything’

Doctor Who writer, Mark Gatiss, has expressed his feelings on Peter Capaldi (The 12th Doctor) and how he could change everything.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Gatiss was asked for his opinion on Capaldi and The 12th Doctor:

“The Doctor’s always the Doctor – but you can have a lot of fun playing with people’s expectations. Everyone knows how the previous Doctor would react in any given situation – and now you just don’t know!”

He continues: “Peter has a very different energy to Matt Smith and to David Tennant. He’s older which changes everything – it’s amazing what a change does! Matt was sublime and I was very sorry to see him go, but it’s also great to have a change – as it has always been with the Doctor.”

Gatiss also mentioned how Capaldi brings “a whole new set of rules”

Peter Capaldi’s debut Series as The 12th Doctor will air in the autumn, alongside companion Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) and new addition to the cast, Samuel Anderson (Danny Pink)
