Peter Capaldi has said that “even if everyone else hates” him, at least “someone, somewhere will love” him.

Speaking to Marie Claire Magazine, Capaldi said: “I don’t know if people will like me or not; or if the show will be more successful or less successful. But no matter what happens, someone, somewhere will love me - I’ll be someone’s Doctor. Even if everyone else hates me.”

He added that his Doctor will be less “user-friendly” than David Tennant’s Doctor, and also reaffirmed his assertion that there will be no romantic spark between the Doctor and Clara.

“He’s definitely not boyfriend material, because that’s not appropriate. He’s less user-friendly [than Tennant], he’s not a walk in the park. The relationship with Clara is one of responsibility and debt and affection.

”Matt and David are much younger than me, much more handsome. And that’s what people have decided they want to take from it. I don’t think that will be happening for me. I don’t expect to be anyone’s heartthrob.”

Capaldi went on to say that he is aware of the huge responsibility that comes with playing the role: “With a big role like this, you have a big sense of responsibility - it’s bigger than me. Doctor Who belongs to all the people who love it. [Being in the spotlight] is just part of the game.”

Doctor Who Series 8 will begin on Saturday, 23rd August on BBC One.

Welcome to Torchwood, leave your heterosexuality at the door and come in

This is one of the reasons I loved Torchwood - everyone’s’ blatant pan/bisexuality.
