When a political omnishambles looms, there’s only one man who can help.
In an appearance on Australian TV, Peter Capaldi brought Malcolm Tucker out of retirement to deliver some typically hilarious and foul-mouthed advice in the wake of an Australian political gaffe that had taken place earlier in the day.
Asked by The Sunday Project presenters (at around five minutes into the clip above) what Malcolm’s advice to the minister in question would be, Capaldi said: “I think he would have said that she was as useless as a marzipan dildo.”
But he wasn’t done there.
“We’re looking at a total omnishambles there,” he continued. “She was all over the place like a mad woman’s s**t. And I’m only getting started.”
Addressing the minister by talking straight down the camera, Capaldi then said: “I’m willing to help, if you want to talk to me. I’m not Doctor Who anymore!”
