New Radio Times Features Peter Capaldi Cover and Steven Moffat Interview


The new Radio Times - on sale from today - not only features a Peter Capaldi cover but also and interview with the Moff who recalls writing "The Day of the Doctor" and casting Peter Capaldi:
“When you choose a Doctor, you want somebody who is utterly compelling, attractive in a very odd way,” writes Moffat. “None of the Doctors are conventionally attractive, but they’re all arresting. Handsome men don’t quite suit. Matt Smith’s a young, good-looking bloke from one angle but is actually the strangest looking man from another. You need that oddity; you need somebody who is carved out of solid star, really."
The new Radio Times also features:
