Capaldi also spoke about his unique position as one of the 12 actors who have played the Doctor. “I don’t want to escape the idea that I’m Doctor Who,” he said.

“It’s finite. I won’t be Doctor Who forever, so there will be a day when people don’t come and say hello.

“It’s a really unique position to be in. There are only 12 people to have played this role and you become the focus of the affection for the role."

“You stand on the shoulders of everybody else who has played it, and they’ve done all the work,” he added. “I just turn up and look alarmed or be excited or blow up a Dalek here and there.”

Capaldi returns as The Doctor on Christmas Day in special episode, ‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio’ at 5.45pm on BBC One.
