Tom Baker Has Faith in Peter Capaldi!

Kasterborous recently – I mean, really recently – caught up with Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, to chat about his time on the show… and beyond.

With a new Doctor waiting in the wings, Tom was asked if he had any advice for Peter Capaldi, and responded with a vote of confidence:

“I don’t have any advice for anyone. Not for anyone; certainly not someone who’s going to be playing Doctor Who. He’s a very accomplished actor; I’ve seen him do those mean things, you know, swearing into his mobile.


Nobody has ever failed have they? Nobody has ever failed, so there you are. He’s going to be alright.”

Tom agrees with us Whovians: all the Doctors are amazing! He’s only the latest in a long line of stars praising the Twelfth Doctor actor, who is expected to debut in the Autumn.

The 80 year old star (can you believe he’s 80?!) was promoting the launch of Doctor Who on the Horror Channel, beginning this Friday. We’ll have that full interview for you very soon…


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' former Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything. He is the co-founder of The Doctor Who Companion:
