Nighy: Capaldi’s Casting “makes perfect sense”
Actor Bill Nighy has given Peter Capaldi’s casting as the Twelfth Doctor the thumbs up.
Nighy played Dr. Black in fan favourite episode Vincent and the Doctor, but he was also offered the role of the Doctor himself before Eccleston took on the part.
He told Huffingtonpost: “I think it’s one of those things you read and you think, ‘Well, of course Peter Capaldi is going to be Doctor Who, it makes perfect sense.’
“He’s a wonderful actor, and I would think he’ll be a terrific Doctor.
“He’ll be very funny, dry, elegant and sharp, and I think it makes perfect sense.”
