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.

Peter Capaldi has broken his silence on why he has made a decision to quit Doctor Who, revealing he was struggling to keep his character interesting. "Those 16 years were wasted". To become heroes because they're flung into that moment where you have no no alternative. So I wouldn't like to say anything too defining.

"Theres so many wonderful people out there that Id like to play, and so many characters that dont exist yet that Id like to play. They banter, for want of a better word".

Then there's the Classic Who mishap of the second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) being forced by the other Time Lords to regenerate into Jon Pertwee's third Doctor. "Those are adult, mature responsibilities - as much as an actor can be adult and mature".

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.

"They were like, "I don't know". But what the pair lack in expertise, they make up for with enthusiasm, and, if nothing else, the footage should help put fans in the right headspace for the return of the long-running time travel show this Saturday.
