Capaldi reflects on whether he has nailed the role of Doctor Who yet. “I don’t think I have, but that’s the way you should be with every part. I find it surprising when actors say, ‘I’ve nailed it. I know how this works.’ I don’t know how it works. I just keep going. It’s clear after a while that certain things are more popular than others, but it would be a mistake to say I know how to do something.”
There is no doubting the authenticity of his passion for all things Whovian. “It’s a very unusual story that somebody who was so into it would end up playing this role. It was such an unlikely event that I never considered it happening to myself. There are things I get excited about that only a fan boy could get excited about. I don’t need any help with the backstory.
