Peter Capaldi will be ‘rude’ Doctor   Leave a comment

Peter Capaldi will be 'rude' Doctor | The List‘Doctor Who’ showrunner Steven Moffat says Peter Capaldi’s interpretation of the titular Time Lord is much ruder than his predecessor Matt Smith’s portrayal of the character.

Peter Capaldi is a “rude” Doctor, according to ‘Doctor Who’ showrunner Steven Moffat.

The 56-year-old actor – famous for playing foul-mouthed political PR guru Malcolm Tucker in satire ‘The Thick Of It’ – makes his debut in the role in upcoming episode ‘Deep Breath’ and Moffat admits his interpretation of the Time Lord is more abrupt than predecessor Matt Smith.

The 52-year-old writer told the new issue of SFX magazine: “Peter will still be very much the Doctor. He has a tremendous ability with throwaway ­humour and a lot of it is around the fact that sometimes he is terribly rude.

“I think kids will think he is the rude Doctor. You might want to cuddle him but he really will resist.”

Moffat has also revealed the relationship between companion Clara Oswald – played by 28-year-old Jenna-Louise Coleman – and the new Doctor will be very different to the relationship she had with Matt’s Time Lord.

He added: “It’s very interesting what’s happened to Jenna. From a Doctor she could sort of control because he had a crush on her, she is landed with a Doctor who barely registers at all that she is a girl.”

The new series of ‘Doctor Who’ starts with episode ‘Deep Breath’ on BBC One on Saturday August 23.

Daleks invade Sesame Street   1 comment

Can you tell me how to geek out to Sesame Street? Easy, just watch their upcoming ‘Numeric Con’ episode.

A brilliant parody of Comic Con (with an educational twist, of course) the episode features Sesame Street characters like Elmo dressed up as comic book and sci-fi heroes like Princess Leia and Batman (‘The Dark Nine’).

Most exciting for young Whovians are the appearance of Tom Baker’s Doctor, the Tardis and some suspiciously Dalek-shaped creatures screeching “Enumerate”.

Also making cameos are Wolverine (‘Fiverine’) from the X-Men, Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons and an absolutely perfect impression of William Shatner as Captain Kirk.

Best. Numeric Con. Ever.
