Peter Capaldi scores Radio Times cover
This week's RT features a long piece by Steven Moffat in which he talks about casting Doctors, amongst sother things (apparently "Day of the Doctor" was the most difficult episode he's ever written). “When you choose a Doctor, you want somebody who is utterly compelling, attractive in a very odd way. None of the Doctors are conventionally attractive, but they’re all arresting. Handsome men don’t quite suit. Matt Smith’s a young, good-looking bloke from one angle but is actually the strangest looking man from another. You need that oddity; you need somebody who is carved out of solid star, really. Doctor Who is a whopping great star vehicle, despite the fact it changes star every so often.” There's more extracts from the piece on the RT website here.
So, Moffat thinks that Matt Smith is good-looking. Straight from the horse's mouth, everyone.
Speaking of the Radio Times, "Day of the Doctor" is up for their Audience Award. You can still vote until 12pm Thursday 15 May.
