Peter Capaldi was announced as the new Doctor of “Doctor Who” on Sunday, Aug. 4, but this isn’t his first foray into the world of TARDIS travels. In 2008, Capaldi appeared in an episode of “Doctor Who,” titled “The Fires of Pompeii,” as Caecilius.
The identity of the next Doctor will be revealed in Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor, a BBC One show that starts at 7pm on Sunday. The person playing the next Doctor will be introduced to the universe and will then be interviewed and some of the questions being asked will come from you!
What would you like to ask the next Doctor? Email us your questions (details below) and we’ll send a selection of them to the team making the show and some of them will be put to the next Doctor.
We obviously can’t guarantee that every question you give us will be asked so try to think of the most original question, or the funniest or something that you feel might interest people but may not have been asked before. We want great questions from you, so have a think about what you want to know and we’ll make sure the next Doctor answers some of them live on air during Sunday’s show.
Email your questions to us here at email@example.com and please make sure the header of your email reads Next Doctor Questions.
We’ll need to know your first name, your age and where you’re from. Please note, we don’t require your full address, just your city, town or village.
Michael Jackson was almost “Doctor Who.” In a new book, “Now On The Big Screen: The Unofficial and Unauthorized Guide to ‘Doctor Who’ At The Cinema,” author Charles Norton reveals that the King of Pop was at the top of Paramount Pictures’ list when the studio was looking to bring “Doctor Who” to the US big screen in the late ’80s, The Times of London was the first to report.
"Doctor Who" was in some very royal company. Princes Charles and Camilla visited the show’s set and met series stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman and several of the show’s behind-the-scenes players including Steven Moffat.
Clara Oswald theory: Bad Wolf/Rose Tyler and Clara are somehow related
Bad Wolf was able to see all of time and space and mold it. (ep: Journey’s End)
Constant presence of roses around all three “versions” of Clara.
‘The most important leaf in human history’ was from a Norway Maple. (ep: The Rings of Akhaten). Darlig Ulv Stranden (a.k.a. Bad Wolf Bay) is located in Norway (ep: Doomsday / Journey’s End)
On 5 March 2005, Rose Tyler first met the Doctor. (ep: Rose) 5 March 2005 is also the date when Clara’s mother died. (ep: The Rings of Akhaten).
Clara is always wearing red clothes (or something red, like her bag in The Rings of Akhaten). Red is the color of most common roses.
The TARDIS doesn’t seem to like Clara (ep: The Rings of Akhaten). This may be due to the fact that she is an anomaly of the Universe. The same thing happened with Jack Harkness, since Bad Wolf gave him immortality. The TARDIS tried to shake Jack off (ep: Utopia).
