Twelve Days of Twelve || July 27: Peter Capaldi Appreciation Day.

I was actually filming in Prague, I’m doing the BBC’s adaptation of  'The Three Musketeers’ over there, playing Cardinal Richelieu. I had my phone on silent so I missed the call. It was my dear agent. I rang her up, and said ‘It’s me’ and she said, 'Hello Doctor.’ I just started to laugh and I haven’t stopped laughing since.

“The Doctor is someone who sees the big picture, and has seen how the human race is, he loves the human race, because he sees its cruelty, but also astonishing kindness and heroism. The Doctor is a beacon of goodness, and that’s why he can survive all these different permutations, an abrasive character or an avuncular character or a strange character. Because at heart, he is, in essence, a good creature. I think we need heroes like that.“
