Peter Capaldi turned down Doctor Who TV movie audition

Had things gone differently, Peter Capaldi could have played the Doctor instead of Paul McGann all the way back in 1996...

Peter Capaldi has revealed that he turned down the chance to audition for the role of the Doctor back in 1996.

Speaking today at a London event celebrating next week’s launch of Doctor Who Series 8 on DVD, Capaldi told interviewer Frank Skinner and an audience of fans:

“I knew I wouldn’t get it. I loved the show so much that I didn’t want to have anything to do with it unless it was going to be me. I didn’t want to have the disappointment and go through all the palaver of jumping through hoops for something that I would never get. Because I knew it was an American pilot, and I knew they would go for somebody who was well-known - which Paul was, and he was fantastic.

Doctor Who Companion Profile: Dr. Grace Holloway

Dr. Grace Holloway

Portrayed by: Daphne Ashbrook

Doctor(s): Eighth Doctor

Tenure: 1 story, Doctor Who: the Movie (referred to by some as “The Enemy Within”)

Background: Dr. Grace Holloway is a cardiovascular surgeon in San Francisco. She has a strained relationship with her live-in boyfriend, due to her constantly being constantly either at work or on call. When she has to leave Madama Butterfly during the start of the second act, this is the last straw; he’s moved out by the time she gets home, with the newly regenerated Doctor in tow (he’s the patient she’s called in to do surgery on).

Family/Friends: We know very little about Grace, aside from her profession and her romantic status, and nothing about her family.

Personality: Grace is hardworking, determined, and focused. She has a love of culture and whimsy, quickly being swept into the Doctor’s struggle against the Master,

The TV movie: Doctor Who classic episode #17

The first attempt to revive the show after the BBC axed it was a messy Us co-production starring Paul McGann as the eighth Doctor. But it is far from the unmitigated disaster that many recall

The TV movie (27 May 1996)

Spoiler Alert: We are discussing some of the Doctor Who adventures broadcast over the past 50 years. In this blog, we're looking at the 1996 TV movie.

Because the big, brave and borderline bonkers 1996 attempt to bring Doctor Who back to screens ultimately failed, it has earned a gloomy reputation that would suggest the whole enterprise was an unmitigated disaster. But watching the thing again with the show securely embedded as a long-returned national treasure, it's striking quite how much they got right.

On a mission back from Skaro carrying the remains of the Master back to Gallifrey, the seventh Doctor is interrupted on his journey by a not-quite-dead Master in the form

Doctor who? The timelord's companions from the 80s and 90s have their say

From working with Tom Baker to Sylvester McCoy, from being eye candy to beating up Daleks

Janet Fielding, Doctors: Tom Baker and Peter Davison

When I joined Doctor Who as Tegan Jovanka in the early 1980s, I was completely unprepared for what being a companion meant. I watched the show when I was a kid – my dad and brothers liked it – but it was more of a bloke thing. I wasn't prepared for how cult it was, and still is.

Like me, Tegan was Australian: I was the first non-English companion. Tegan was known as the "mouth on legs": she used to rip into the Doctor, so that was a change from the previous companions. But I still found the role quite frustrating. John Nathan-Turner, the producer, made absolutely no bones about why the companions were there: you were told, in words of one syllable, that you were there for the dads.

Doctor Who Mega Review – Big Finish’s July Releases

Welcome to my Big Finish mega-review for the month of July! I’m also including one June release, since I wasn’t able to listen to it until just this month. Enjoy!

Companion Chronicles 8.01 – “Mastermind”

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

The Vault – an archive of alien artefacts securely stored deep beneath the Angel of the North.

There’s also a prisoner in the Vault. An extraterrestrial known as the Master. He has been on Earth for some time, but now he’s under lock and key.

This is his story.

Or, as Captain Ruth Matheson and Warrant Officer Charlie Sato discover… perhaps it is theirs.

Starring: Geoffrey Beevers (The Master), Daphne Ashbrook (Ruth Matheson), Yee Jee Tso (Charlie Sato)

This is easily the best audio this month, and one of the best Companion Chronicles stories period. The story itself revisits the Unit vault, previously seen a few chronicles ago, and brings

Doctor Who Gallifrey One La Convention Preview

This is a big weekend for Whovians in the U.S with the Gallifrey One convention (#gally) taking place in La.

In it’s 23rd year this convention is pretty much as official as it gets ‘across the pond’ (no Pond intended) and has seen a huge swell of interest thanks to the intense promotional work and focus on American Who fandom since we first saw The Impossible Astronaut in 2011.

While not an “official” convention like the one to be held in Cardiff in late March, this one is crammed with guests that will interest both classic and current series fans (thought not Matt Smith and Karen Gillan as they are the primary focus of the official convention). Firstly, the day is being billed as a 1996 TV movie reunion with 8th Doctor Paul McGann reunited with Daphne Ashbrook, Yee Jee Tso, Eric Roberts and producer Philip Segal.

Doctor Who complete reviews: The TV movie

The 1990s were Doctor Who's very own Decadus Horriblus (thanks to the Basil Brush Book of Latin for this). Up until 1990, Doctor Who had carved itself a niche in the BBC schedules, usually to worldwide applause, high ratings and positive critical feedback.

And then it all went horribly wrong.

By the mid-1980s, Doctor Who was starting to get out of its depth as a result of a misunderstood Doctor, over-complicated plots and a dash of violence. Cue an extended holiday; but on its return, its reputation was still in tatters. Despite a bold attempt to re-invent itself as a confident, clever show of mystery, the BBC bosses weren't impressed. And so the axe fell, leaving the faithful mob of Doctor Who fans to wait and wonder.

But don't forget – TV programming had radically changed in the 1990s in a number of ways. For one thing, there was an

Lorenzo Lamas to Get Married for Fifth Time

Actor Lorenzo Lamas is planning to wed for a fifth time this July after reportedly proposing to his young girlfriend. The former "The Bold and the Beautiful" soap star, 52, and his 23-year-old lover Shawna Craig will exchange vows on July 4 on Catalina Island, off the coast of California, according to the National Enquirer.

A family insider tells the tabloid, "They're marrying at the historic Avalon Hotel. They've planned an intimate ceremony overlooking the ocean with a small reception to follow. They've invited only about 30 people."

Together, they have three children, Alexandra Lynne Lamas, Victoria Lamas and Isabella Lorenza Lamas. The "Renegade" star additionally has two kids from his marriage with Michele Smith, and a daughter from his relationship with Daphne Ashbrook.
