1[on Peter Capaldi] My father was very fond of Peter and Peter is an extremely lovely gentleman. He was very kind to my family when my father passed away, he was big fan of my dad's actually. So personally the Pertwee household were absolutely delighted when he got the role of The Doctor. I think he's going to bring some real gravitas and weight, which only comes with age. Taking nothing away from Matt [Matt Smith], who I thought was great, I just think he's going to stupendous. He's going to have a completely different look. He's such a phenomenal actor anyway I think he'll be absolutely brilliant. I'm delighted he's doing it.
