'Doctor Who' guest star Michael Smiley talks Capaldi, Daleks and 'Luther'

Yesterday, we introduced you to new Doctor Who cast member Sam Anderson. Now tonight’s episode, which screens on BBC America, will find another person losing his Who-virginity: Michael Smiley.  The actor and comedian is no stranger to much-loved cult TV, having appeared in both the Edgar-Wright-directed sitcom Spaced and the Idris Elba cop show Luther. He also starred in the deranged 2011 horror movie Kill List, whose director Ben Wheatley oversaw tonight’s ominously-titled episode of Doctor Who, “Into the Dalek.”

'Doctor Who': Meet new cast member Sam Anderson

When Sam Anderson booked the recurring role of teacher Danny Pink on the long-running British time travel show Doctor Who, he couldn’t wait to spread the good news. “I got the call and was like, ‘Woah, man, I got Doctor Who!'” the actor says. “My agent rang again. ‘Don’t tell anyone!’ I was like, ‘I just told a roomful of people!’ But luckily it was a couple of actors and some jazz musicians, who really couldn’t care less.

'Doctor Who' season premiere review: Out with the old, in with the older

Peter Capaldi assumed the title of Time Lord in the 90-minute season premiere of Doctor Who, but we didn’t really meet the new Doctor until the final act. Fresh off a traumatic regeneration, the (debatably) 12th articulation of the 2000-year-old extraterrestrial hero spent most of his too-long, unevenly paced debut suffering from fuzzy memory, identity flux, and disorientation panic, much like that temporally displaced, discombobulated, TARDIS-snacking T-Rex that found itself chucked forward across epochs to Victorian London.

As a result, it was hard to draw a bead on the Doctor and how Capaldi’s take would differ from that of his predecessor, Matt Smith—beyond the fact that Doctor has been born again as Scottish, and older, too. (Capaldi is 56; Smith retired from the role last Christmas at age 31.) READ FULL STORY

Why Peter Capaldi of 'Doctor Who' thought he'd never play the Time Lord

On August 23, Peter Capaldi will begin his first season starring in Doctor Who when the long-running British science-fiction show returns to BBC America. But it wasn’t so long ago that the Scottish actor and lifelong Who fan was certain he would never get his hands on the controls of the Time Lord’s TARDIS. “I wouldn’t have thought I would be the guy,” Capaldi says. “I wouldn’t have thought it would be me.” Why not? “Because of my age.
