Peter Capaldi Dons Radio Times Cover

The latest issue of the Radio Times features the Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi on the cover, as well as an interview with Steven Moffat, read on for further details:

In this week’s Radio Times, on sale Tuesday 13th May 2014 (for listings 17th-23rd May 2014) Steven Moffat recalls writing the Day of the Doctor, revealing it was the most “difficult” and “terrifying” thing he has ever written and reveals why he chose Peter Capaldi to be the new Doctor.

Steven Moffat writes: “When you choose a Doctor, you want somebody who is utterly compelling, attractive in a very odd way. None of the Doctors are conventionally attractive, but they’re all arresting. Handsome men don’t quite suit. Matt Smith’s a young, good-looking bloke from one angle but is actually the strangest looking man from another. You need that oddity; you need somebody who is carved out of solid star, really. Doctor Who is a whopping great star vehicle, despite the fact it changes star every so often.”

The Day of the Doctor is one of the nominees for this year’s Radio Times Audience Award at the British Academy Television Awards 2014 - the only BAFTA award open to public vote. Voting is open until 12:00pm Thursday 15th May, the winner will be announced on Sunday 18 May.

The new issue of Radio Times also includes 16-page guide to the Bafta TV Awards 2014 featuring David Attenborough, Dominic West, Rory Kinnear, Helen George, Laura Carmichael, Natalie Dormer and much, MUCH more…

This edition of Radio Times is on sale from today all good newsagents until 23rd May priced £1.99 per copy.
