Peter Capaldi knew his time was up in Doctor Who

But it's Doctor Who at its purest I would say.

Separate rumours have suggested that she may leave Doctor Who after just one series as a companion, which would give new showrunner Chris Chibnall a fresh start when Peter Capaldi also leaves as the 12th Doctor - along with current head writer Steven Moffat.

"She's quite like me in that she's inquisitive and cheeky, and like me she talks a lot!"

He said: "The creative possibilities are endless, but I have a very clear sense of what we're going to do, without even knowing who's going to play the part".

See how wrong we were about the most recent trailer...

... I think she's got a great instinct about her, great vigor, and great comic chops.

"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". "I loved being a Doctor, but it's time to go".

Doctor Who aficionados will know the significant role that London's fictional Coal Hill School, here renamed Coal Hill Academy, has played in the Time Lord series from the very beginning and over the years since. Try not to be conscious of the fact that I'm being watched in Canada and South Korea and Australia and New Zealand and America and Rio and Mexico. "You're always responding to what's on screen and make it up as you go along".

He's so lovely. He's been so welcoming and so generous with his knowledge and time and has been really encouraging as well of what I've been doing, which is really nice because I'm really new to the TV game, so sometimes I'm like, 'I don't know what that means.' And he'll say, 'That means this, this, and this.'

We'll see Bill's first time aboard the TARDIS, but what was it like for you stepping into the set of the TARDIS? First, that the Doctor apparently utters the line "My name is Doctor Who" which will probably piss people off to no end, but also that he appears to be on the back foot once again.

Speaking ahead of the show's return, Mackie said that the fellow actress, who left her role as Clara Oswald in 2015, sent her flowers on her first day of filming along with some tips for the show.
