Peter promises thrills this series


PETER CAPALDI TELLS US WHAT TO EXPECT FROM HIS SECOND SERIES AS THE DOCTOR

The last time we saw Peter Capaidi's Doctor we were stuffed full of turkey as he larked about with Nick Frost's Santa Claus in the Christmas special.

Finally, the wait for his return is over this week as Peter blasts back for a second series as the space-skipping Time Lord, and he tells us what we can expect over the next 12 episodes...

HAS IT BEEN GOOD TO BE BACK FILMING YOUR SECOND SERIES?

It's been lovely to be back and everything's been very positive.

I think everyone's been happy to be on set in Cardiff and the scripts are very strong. Everyone's become enthused with the spirit of adventure that runs through the scripts. It's been exciting!

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THIS SERIES?

I think they'll find a lot of thrills, lots of mystery, a reckless Doctor in pursuit of adventure. It's thrilling, hopefully full of spectacle and adventure. It's not a sitting back, domesticated,

reflective series. It's the Doctor and Clara roaring through time and space in search of thrills. It should be a fun watch for audience.

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE OPENING EPISODE?

The opening episode of the new series is fabulous. The story is going to take us across the universe into all types of dark, terrifying and funny places. Its a particularly epic one to start, with lots of old favourites. Missy and the Daleks are returning and, particularly for those who are nostalgic with the Daleks of the 60s, there are some special surprises in store.

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP UICE BETWEEN CLARA AND THE DOCTOR THIS TIME?

I think the Doctor and Clara are really having a good time. They've had some conflicts and challenges, but generally if you can weather the storms, you often find that your relationship is much stronger. That's certainly the case with the Doctor and Clara. They've bonded, like a little gang. The Doctor has realised that he's 2,000 years old and life is short. He wants to enjoy himself and enjoy having Clara around. She's very good at trying to help him. He's still rather impatient with human beings, which some people as being socially inept, but he just can't be bothered with them. He has better things to do. But she helps him a lot and tries to improve his manners and social skills. But they are very deeply bonded. It's a very curious relationship, it doesn't really have an equivalent in television. It's a non-romantic, but deeply bonded pairing which is strangely full of affection. Its more deeply felt than simple romantic relationships.

MISSY IS BACK. WHAT IS HER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE DOCTOR LIKE?

I wouldn't say their relationship has changed since he saw her last. Missy's role is slightly different, but you'll have to wait and see...

EPISODE TWO SEES THE DOCTOR FIGHT DALEKS FROM DEFERENT DECADES. DID YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE?

I don't have a particular favourite, but I do like to see the little old ones. They're very sweet as they're quite small. They're still strangely brutal, nasty little pieces of work, but are rather handsome and classy. They were great fun and do what is expected of them. You get a whole group of them together in the opening episode. I think we had about 20 of them in the studio, so that was very exciting. Once you had them all moving, it was very funny watching Nettie (Macdonald) directing them, because she was directing them like actors. She'd say, "You're getting upset at this moment, have a look at your friends." They'd look at their friends and then she'd say, "You need to look nervous now," and they'd actually be able to convey nervousness. It was very, very lever. It was like being in a Dalek theme park, with a free ticket
