Peter Capaldi has admitted that he initially thought he was too old be the Twelfth Doctor.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Capaldi said that he expected Matt Smith to be replaced by an actor who is more of a similar age.
“I wouldn’t have thought it would be me - because of my age,” he confessed. “I would have thought they were automatically heading younger.”
However, he added: “I’m technically too young for the part, because he’s over 2,000 years old.”
Doctor Who Series 8 will begin on Saturday, 23rd August on BBC One.
