Capaldi’s Doctor More Alien, Less “human-friendly”

capaldi-empire-2014-thumbPeter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are interviewed in the upcoming issue of Empire and provide some thoughts on the new Doctor.

Capaldi said: “It can become a kind of franchise where it’s not a real character at all, but just an amalgam of elements that people think are Doctor Who: a scarf, a bow tie… I wanted to be the actual Doctor Who.”

Expanding on his Doctor: “He’s more alien than he’s been for a while. He doesn’t quite understand human beings or really care very much about their approval.”

Jenna Coleman adds: “With Matt’s Doctor [Clara] felt quite safe, really. She knew she’d be caught if she was in danger, but this guy is a lot less human-friendly and a lot less patient. He’s more removed and accessible. You can’t quite access him in the same way.”
