Steven Moffat Reveals More On What Type Of Doctor Peter Capaldi Will Be

If you tuned into the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who this weekend, which I don’t know why you wouldn’t, you probably inevitably freaked out a little when you caught your first tiny glimpse of Peter Capaldi playing the Doctor. After the episode aired this weekend, Moffat told the press at the official Doctor Who Celebration at London’s ExCel that he had a cameo by the new Doctor, despite not knowing who it was at first, planned the entire time. “It was the plan from the start - all the Doctors…all the Doctors will fly in to save Gallifrey and change the timeline. That meant we should have the new one. I knew there was going to be a new one, so I wrote it not knowing who would be doing that scene.” Though this time we only saw Capaldi’s eyes for about less than a second on the screen, we will be seeing him debut as the new Doctor during this year’s Christmas special. Matt Smith will be leaving us and we’ll get our first full Capaldi scene. Moffat describes the scene by saying he “leaps around the place” in “post-regeneration madness”. Moffat describes a little more of Capaldi’s Doctor saying that he is a very physical performer and that people shouldn’t be worried or think that he will be an “elderly” Doctor. “People keep talking about this ‘elderly’ Doctor that we’ve cast... he leaps around the place probably more than any other Doctor in that first scene,” Moffat claims. The odds of him constantly leaping around the place after he has fully regenerated aren’t that great though. “That’s not how he’s going to play it - that’s just him in the post-regeneration madness. It’s something we’re still working on.” Though Moffat’s descriptions of the newest Doctor tend to be a bit vague, as they should be in order to prevent too many spoilers, I think a lot of Whovians are very excited to see where a new type of Doctor can take us during the next season. In regards to Matt Smith’s final episode, Moffat says, “It is a proper finale to Matt Smith. It’s the story that we’ve been telling since he first put the bow tie on - that’s what we’re going to resolve. A lot of stuff we’ve left hanging we tie up there. And it’s Trenzalore!” The Christmas episode is sure to be an exciting episode as well as yet another tear-jerker. If you haven’t seen the 10 second teaser for the Christmas episode, “The Time of the Doctor,” then here you go! Let us know what you think of the newest Doctor and the teaser!
