Here's Peter Capaldi as the Doctor!

Coleman: Peter is “Going to be Wonderful”

Jenna Coleman has reassured everybody about Peter Capaldi’s casting as the Twelfth Doctor – not that we needed it!

Speaking at the 19th National Television Awards, Coleman had nothing but praise for the new Time Lord, who has just started work on Series 8:

“[Peter is] great of course – we all know he’s going to be wonderful.It’s been great to get up on our feet and get started. We just seem to have taken off like a rocket.”

The new series, which began filming earlier this year, is scheduled to air in late 2014, with Coleman promising “exciting times ahead” for the mad man with a box. We can’t wait!


likes William Hartnell, whisky, being creative, debating canonicity, The Gunfighters, The Keys of Marinus and City of Death. He has a strong dislike of cold quiche, corporate PowerPoint presentations and lanyards, but loves terrible puns. He's currently employed by a mute teddy bear with black ears.
