Peter Capaldi

  1. Jamie Roberts, Lifeforce, 1984.        After some of their lists totaled  between 17 and 44 actors per role, London casting queens, Maud Spector and Ann Stanborough,  had just two ideas for Rawlins. Communications Officer of the spaceship Churchill.   Roberts and Capadli – the fourth Doctor Who  (after Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Patrick Troughton) to be included in their various lists. Although, of course, Capaldi  didn’t  whove until 2014
  2. Nicholas Parsons, Doctor Who #154: The Curse of Fenric, 1989.        In a sheer casting fluke, the future Docs 9 and 12 – Christopher Eccleston and Peter Capaldi – were in the Reverend Wainwright mix with Jonathon Morris and Christopher Villiers for t Doc7 Sylvester McCoy’s latest adventure.  
  3. Paul McGann, Doctor Who #156: Doctor Who 1996.      Yes, that was the title of the one-off tele-film. The next tale, #157: Rose,2005, began the period of Doc9 Christopher Eccleston as the BBC revived the franchise after a 16 year break.  A certain Peter Capaldi was  asked to audition. He passed, feeling sure he’d never get the very part that turned him on to acting. He guested as Pater Familias Caecilius in #190: The Fires of Pompeii,2008, with Doc19 David Tennant – at Rome’s (or Fellini’s)  famous Cinecitta studio!  And then, he became Doc12 during 2014-2017.
  4. Jamie Roberts, Lifeforce, 1984.
