More than 1,000 people got a ticket to become the first to see Doctor Who in the U.S.
Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat and stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman answered reporters’ questions on the TARDIS-blue carpet and were all smiles during the Q&A with Chris Hardwick. At one point, Capaldi corrected a fan who gave the wrong name of his other Doctor Who character in a season 4 episode, and even if you haven’t been following the tour or any of his previous interviews, you could tell that Capaldi is a lifelong fan of the show.
He watched when Doctor Who first premiered in 1963, and he made his daughter watch the reboot when it came back—still had incredible love and respect for it even now as he helms the sonic screwdriver and the TARDIS.
“The show started when I was 5, so I literally grew up with it,” he said. “I loved them all.”
