‘Doctor Who’ Star Peter Capaldi Received Tips from Former Docters


Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi got some helpful tips on how to cope with the pressure of the iconic role from a very useful source – previous Time Lords Matt Smith and David Tennant.

The Scottish actor, 56, took over from Smith, 31, in the hit sci-fi TV series last year and his full debut as the time-travelling adventurer aired in the U.K. and U.S. last weeked.

He had previously told how landing the part was a childhood dream come true, but now he has confessed he was secretly terrified of taking on the role and received some wise words of advice from a previous and much younger incumbent.

Capaldi tells British newspaper The Sun, “I think I would have found this difficult when I was Matt’s age. At that age, I was less assured as an actor than he is and not so in touch with my skills. I was watching him the other night in an old episode – he has such a magic and wisdom about him. And he’s been a big help to me. Both he and David Tennant have been tremendously helpful.”
