Peter Capaldi may play a grumpy version of the Doctor, but off screen he is incredibly generous with the role. For instance: this video of Capaldi answering children’s questions in character as the Time Lord.
Filmed at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff for Nu-Who’s 10th birthday, it’s impossible to watch without smiling. We have to maintain some journalistic credibility, but it definitely confirms he is the greatest guy to ever live bar none.
Thrill as he takes on The Foretold! Weep as he describes the pain of leaving his granddaughter Susan! Stare intently at his face and try to make out his resemblance to David Tennant!
Capaldi’s in-depth Who knowledge really shines through here, letting him improvise answers without breaking character. Like a skinny Santa, he has a way with the younger fans, including helping them adapt to the departure of Matt Smith or comforting them in the wake of a loved one’s death.
