Screens Wednesday August 20, 8pm on ABC
In the lead-up to the highly anticipated premiere of Doctor Who Series 8, ABC has secured an exclusive interview with the incoming 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi.
Hosted by Julia Zemiro (Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery), the half-hour one-on-one interview will introduce the new Doctor to Australian audiences four days before his TV debut.
Filmed in Sydney during the upcoming World Tour, the interview will explore Peter’s experiences playing the Doctor so far, his relationship with the character over the years, and the challenges in taking on a role of such global cultural significance.
Julia will also explore Peter’s TV and film career – from his first acting role in the film Local Hero to the foul-mouthed and manipulative Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It.
