On being feeling too old to be The Doctor:
“I never thought I would be in the frame for it because the Doctors were getting younger and younger and that was fine.”
The Radio Times have also released a digital special edition. See the press release below:
The new digital issue Radio Times, available iOS on Apple’s Newsstand, celebrates the dawn of a new Doctor with exclusive additional Doctor Who content, including a digital reproduction of the Doctor Who 10th Anniversary Radio Times special. The 68 page supplement was first published in 1973 and inspired the then 15 year old future Doctor, Peter Capaldi, to write to Radio Times in praise of the special edition.
The 10th anniversary supplement features the third Doctor Jon Pertwee on the cover and includes episode guides for the first 10 years, a guide to build your own Dalek and a (then) new Dalek story by Terry Nation.
The Radio Times digital special also features a unique animated Doctor Who cover, only available with the digital edition, featuring Peter Capaldi; plus a picture gallery of the new Doctor from an Radio Times exclusive photo-shoot.
Features inside the new issue include an exclusive interview and cover shoot with star Peter Capaldi; showrunner Steven Moffat’s unmissable guide to all 12 episodes of the new series; an exclusive interview with José Mourinho by comedian and author David Baddiel; David Walliams; James Corden; plus comprehensive TV and radio listings for 23-29 August.
Radio Times on iPad contains all the great features, interviews, reviews and comprehensive TV and radio listings for 146 channels available in the print issue, alongside additional interactive features to enhance the readers’ experience. The additional features in the digital issue include:
- Specially designed contents page for quick and easy direct access to daily choice and listings pages
