Radio Times interview here
“With the best will in the world, I don’t want a bloke,” he says, “because I’m frightened that they’ll give him all the action and I’ll be standing around spouting scientific gobbledygook… ‘Oh, Peter’s not up to chasing those Zygons down the corridor, let the chap do it.’ And that would be awful. I want to chase the Zygons!”

What can you tell us about the Doctor Who Christmas special this year?
Well the Christmas special is very Christmassy, which I’m sure everyone will be relieved to hear. It finds the Doctor in a Dickensian kind of world, in a Christmas card sort of world which he’s been brought to in order to do a favour for a king. So there’s quite a festive spirit to the episode. But the favour is more complex and isn’t exclusively for the benefit of the king, but more for the benefit of the king’s consort.
I seem to be very behind on everything here I’m very sorry real life seems to have got in the way of everything but will try and update as much as possible.

Peter Interview from here
“I like characters who are strange and on the edge. A lot of the people I play are excluded from the mainstream and I think that’s because of the way I look. But who wants to watch an everyman all the time? I’m not that bothered if I never do another scene in a kitchen.”
“It’s ridiculous that we get these old guys with young women draped round them. When I started Doctor Who and we were doing photoshoots we’d be asked if Jenna could just lie down there while I, you know” — he leaps up and acts out a young woman sprawled coquettishly about while he gets to stand and look powerful over her. “I had to say, ‘Look, that’s just not what we’re about. The relationship between my Doctor and his companion is one of deep love. But it’s a strange sort of platonic bond. It becomes clearer and more moving as this particular series goes on.”
I had a great time at the Doctor Who festival at the weekend and I took a few pictures I’m not putting many up or my own personal picture of me and Peter due to large number of people who steal and repost pictures.
Peter was lovely and said some great things in the talks.
No Reposting of any of these pictures.
