New companion Pearl reacts to Peter’s departure
Pearl Mackie has responded to the recent news that her co-star Peter Capaldi will be stepping down as the Twelfth Doctor after one more series.
The actress who plays her is featured as one of InStyle UK’s Rising Stars of 2017 and told them that she will be “so sad” to see him go.
“But I’m also so happy that I got to work with him,” she said. “He’s so generous actor and I am new to camera acting, so he’ll always check if I’m ok. He is very open to my opinions.”
She also revealed where she was when she found out that she’d won the part of the Time Lord’s coveted sidekick, as she reminisced: “I was at home with my housemate. The whole process was mad. It was like being in M15! Then my agent called me to tell me I got it and there was lots of tears. I had to call her back after, to check that it had actually happened!”
Series 10 of Doctor Who begins on BBC One on Saturday 15th April. Watch the trailer –>
