Sean Pertwee: My father was very fond of Capaldi


Looking more and more like his father in the new Batman spin-off, Gotham.

Sean Pertwee, son of the legendary Jon Pertwee, has shared some thoughts on Peter Capaldi, revealing that his late father was fond of the new Doctor.

Pertwee told the PA: “My father was very fond of Peter and Peter is an extremely lovely gentleman. He was very kind to my family when my father passed away.”

He adds: “I think he’s going to bring some real gravitas and weight, which only comes with age. Taking nothing away from Matt (Smith), who I thought was great, I just think he’s going to have a completely different look.

“He’s such a phenomenal actor anyway I think he’ll be absolutely brilliant. I’m delighted he’s doing it.”
