Quote: "It's the easiest thing I've ever done in my life! It's not hard, it's fun... People keep saying to me, 'Is it weird suddenly being recognised in a way I wasn't before?' I walk down the street, and people say 'Look, there's Doctor Who,' not, 'Look, there's Peter.' They see me and smile, as they are happy to see Doctor Who, and that's lovely." Scottish actor Peter Capaldi finds his role as Doctor Who the "easiest thing" he's ever done in his life.
Quote: "Fans of the show would come up to me and say, 'Swear at me, please, please swear at me,' so I would have to stand in the street and abuse them with the worst possible language." Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi is happy to please fans of his foul-mouthed political spin doctor character in award-winning British satire The Thick of It.
Quote: "He's tough to be around, but you do want to be around him. You know those people - you think, 'I like that guy, he's really exciting, but he's a bit exhausting and I'm glad I'm not married to him'." Peter Capaldi insists his new Doctor Who will be cranky and "trickier" than his predecessors.

Quote: "He's such an amazing actor and completely right for the part. We went out for lunch to talk Doctor tactics. I'm not sure if I gave him any real ideas because it's not like he needs much help. He'll play the Doctor in his own way - and do it brilliantly." British actor Matt Smith can't wait to see Peter Capaldi replace him as the title character in cult U.K. series Doctor Who.
