It seems like everyone is still talking about the new Doctor in Doctor Who. Well, that’s because it’s a big deal! Harry Potter alum Bill Nighy even spoke to Digital Spy about the casting of the new doctor. He called Peter Capaldi a “terrific choice” to replace Matt Smith as The Doctor on the BBC show Doctor Who.
Nighy, who has also appeared on the BBC show, told Digital Spy that Capaldi will bring “elegance and wit” to the role of the Doctor. Nighy sat with About Time director Richard Curtis to talk about Capaldi’s impending role. Curtis joked that Stephen Moffat, Doctor Who’s show runner, “cast himself” when he chose Capaldi over many other contenders. "They’re both 50-year-old, slightly grumpy Scots," Curtis added jokingly.
It is safe to say all Whovians are interested in seeing Capaldi in this role. It will surely be sad once Matt Smith says goodbye to the famously long-running series, but we are bound to fall in love with Capaldi the way we fell for Smith after saying goodbye to the much loved Tenth Doctor, David Tennant.
