“He’s in pursuit of joy and grabbing every thrill that he can along the way. But I sense him running from something, that even he does not yet understand,” he added. According to Capaldi, this search for adventure extends to Jenna Coleman’s Clara, too:
“They’ve suddenly realized that they are the most fortunate people in all of time and space and are hell-bent on adventure. Jenna continues to deliver a beautifully nuanced, complex, and funny performance that marks her out as one of the best companions ever.” He also described guest star Maisie Williams as “a sharp, talented tornado” who “shifts in cosmic ways.”
“There is an epic sweep to this season and I think the villains and monsters reflect that,” Mr Capaldi also mentioned. “Great new ones, brilliant old ones and some very scary creatures looming in stories with real emotional ambition.”
Along with these teases, Capaldi also described this new picture from the show. He said that “the photo shows the Doctor about to make a mistake that has cataclysmic repercussions”…
