Peter Capaldi has revealed that he has enlisted the help of previous Doctors to help him prepare for his own journey in the TARDIS.

Speaking at the Doctor Who World Tour event in Sydney, the actor admitted that the pressure of the iconic role can be “overwhelming at times”. “You’ve got to take it a day at a time,” he said. “Matt Smith and David Tennant have been very supportive. I can talk to them anytime. It’s quite a small club, and only the other actors who’ve played the Doctor recognise the realities of what being in this position is like.”

He continued: “But one is very aware that you’re stepping into a role that has been around for a long time. It means a lot to people. It’s a delightful position, but it’s a responsibility.”

Series 8 will begin on 23rd August with a feature-length premiere episode Deep Breath.

Peter Capaldi has been chatting about his TARDIS takeover in a featured interview with ShortList Magazine.

The actor will make his full-length debut as the Twelfth Doctor on Saturday 23rd August and admitted that he “had to stand in a corner and scream” when he found out he had won the coveted role. “We were shooting The Musketeers in Prague,” he reminisced. “I finally got on the phone to my agent and she said, “Hello Doctor…”. But I couldn’t tell anyone! So I just walked around Prague humming the Doctor Who theme tune.”

He also revealed that he met up with Matt Smith for dinner to share top Time Lord tips and suggested that the secret of Doctor Who’s longevity is its “sense of mortality”. He said: “It embodies some key human desires, such as the desire for people to escape when their life gets crappy. When things are going wrong, it would be very nice if you had that blue box…”

Matt Smith has admitted that he’s “really jealous” about all the new adventures that lie in wait for Peter Capaldi.

The actor made his final appearance as the Eleventh Doctor in The Time of the Doctor at Christmas and told fans at a recent Q&A panel that he knows what’s coming up in Series 8. “I phoned Steven Moffat up the other day and he has told me everything,” he teased. “It sounds really good. Peter will be different and it will be a different show but that’s what it’s all about. So I’ve got to let it go!”

He added: “But that’s the great thing about Doctor Who. Everybody has their own Doctor so hopefully I’ve claimed a few eight or nine year olds…” And we’re sure you have, Matt!

Karen Gillan has admitted that it was “a surreal experience” to film her cameo in Matt Smith’s final Doctor Who episode.

The actress briefly returned to her role as Amy Pond in ‘The Time of the Doctor’ last Christmas for the Eleventh Doctor’s emotional regeneration scene. She has told Entertainment Weekly recently that “it was so weird” to go back. “I spent three very important years of my life on that TV show,” she said. “So to go back and be on someone else’s TARDIS was just a really weird sensation.”

She explained “It was like being on the outside looking in but also knowing that life is OK after you leave Doctor Who. So it was an interesting experience plus it was important to me that I was there for Matt’s final moments – me and Jenna were hugging and crying!”

Karen’s latest film, Oculus, is now in cinemas in the US – watch its official trailer HERE.
