The Thick of It creator Armando Iannucci says: “The Peter I know is the smart, funny, thoughtful guy – and I think he’s exactly what the Doctor should be. In fact, when David Tennant said he was leaving, I wondered if they’d ask Peter – just a flicker. He seems to have the air of the classic Doctor.”
Former Doctor Tom Baker says: “He’s a wonderful choice to play the Doctor. Instantly one felt: this fellow comes from far far away, he’s strange. An instant frisson. And what’s the word? Yes, got it! Alien, he’s an alien. I salute him.”
Radio Times is available on the Apple Newsstand every Tuesday, for iPad and iPhone, at £1.99 per issue. Other platforms will receive it soon after.
