Capaldi’s Doctor is a Snarling Beast

day-of-the-doctor-capaldiSteven Moffat has said we can expect Peter Capaldi’s Doctor to be a bit of a snarling beast, which might explain why he didn’t exactly look friendly in his The Day of the Doctor cameo.

Moffat told Flicks and the City: “He’s a genius. He is a genius actor. That’s not even controversial to say. He’s got a great love of the part. The moment you think of Peter Capaldi and that face in the TARDIS, that works and everybody gets that.

“He’s going to give us a whole new kind of Doctor. We’ve got used to two brilliant iterations of the younger, more popular Doctor and they have both been superlative, but now it’s time for the old beast to snarl at you for a bit!”

He adds: “Sometimes you see that a bit in Matt Smith’s Doctor. He will remind the people around him, ‘I’m not really like this.’ But I think Peter’s Doctor will make that even clearer.”
