Pearl Mackie: I nearly ran out on my Doctor Who audition

Pearl Mackie: I nearly ran out on my Doctor Who audition

I can guarantee there will be fans who disliked Clara (Jenna Coleman)-who had the thankless job of filling the void left by Amy and Rory (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill)-who will soon complain that Bill isn't as good as Clara, even if she's brilliant.

Mackie plays Bill Potts, a woman who works in the canteen of the fictional St Luke's, Bristol University, who encounters the Doctor at the beginning of the first episode, The Pilot. While Peter said his would-be co-star "looked great" during their first meeting, Pearl confessed: "When we read together and you (Peter) said, "Shall we stand up?', I panicked". Capaldi's interpretation of the Doctor was an attempt to contrast the previous incarnation - an approachable, warm chap played by Matt Smith - with "a graver, darker" personality.

When you tune in to the new season, consider this: Who would you like to see as the next Doctor? "It's about time, isn't it?" she said. The show's a "perfect home" for him because of its emotional capacity.
