For Peter Capaldi, playing the Doctor takes him back to his roots as an actor. At a press event Capaldi revealed that his acting was most influenced by men who have played the part of the famous timelord, rather than by the traditional greats. “I’ve been watching the show since I was five years old,” he said.“Actors who played Doctor Who – Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom – those were the people I was watching. More than Laurence Olivier.”
The Doctor Peter Capaldi is spotted with Ingrid Oliver during filming for the ninth series of BBC show Doctor Who at Barry beach on May 18, 2015 in Barry, Wales. The beach was being used to film the aftermarth of a plane crash.
