Tom Baker, famous for his portrayal of the 4th incarnation of the Doctor from 1974 to 1981, has praised the choice of Peter Capaldi to play the adventure-loving Time Lord in the upcoming eighth series of the long-running sci-fi show, describing him as an “accomplished actor”.

Earlier this week at a press conference, Baker stated that “I don’t have any advice for anybody and certainly not someone taking over Doctor Who.” In reference to Capaldi’s upcoming role as the Time Lord, Baker further said “he’s a very accomplished actor. I’ve seen him do those mean things, you know, swearing into his mobile. Nobody has ever failed, so there you are,”

Baker went onto describe outgoing Doctor Who star Matt Smith as a “charming young man”.
