Peter Capaldi On Jenna Coleman’s Departure From ‘Doctor Who’ – ‘I Found It Really Sad’ | TV News


It appears the Doctor’s latest incarnation is all heart behind those fierce eyebrows, for actor Peter Capaldi has revealed he found it “really sad” when it came to saying goodbye to Clara Oswald actress Jenna Coleman. The impossible girl made her last appearance in the finale of season 9’s episode Hell Bent after three years on the show; making her the longest running companion of the revived series.


Speaking with the Radio Times, he explained how much he enjoyed working alongside Coleman and how upset he was to see her go: “I found it really sad, because Jen’s a great girl and a great actress. I used to love being in the Tardis with her, we’d just have a laugh, you know? And that’s all I want out of work, I’m afraid, to go along and have a nice time”.


Speaking about her replacement, Capaldi also revealed that he doesn’t want it to be a man in fear of being upstaged physically by a younger model and lets face it, there’s a whole lot of running in Doctor Who! He stated “I don’t want a bloke, because I’m frightened that they’ll give him all the action and I’ll be standing around spouting scientific gobbledygook… ‘Oh, Peter’s not up to chasing those Zygons down the corridor, let the chap do it’. And that would be awful. I want to chase the Zygons”.
