Peter Capaldi talks time, space and Lego Dimensions with CNET

TV & Movies
[MUSIC] Luke Lancaster here for CNET with the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi. Thank you for joining us. It's a pleasure to be here. Lego Dimensions is the fabulous from WB and the Doctor Who pack for that is just coming out. Yeah. What was it like to be kind of recreated in Lego? It's absolutely extraordinary. All of us know Lego, everybody knows what it's like, played with it at some point in their life. See yourself created as this tiny little figure with. I'm always shocked that my figure has daughter who has grey hair. Because for some reason I don't think of myself with grey hair but I better get used to the idea of it now. Because it's official it's in Lego. I think it's an amazing game. I think it's I know that it was made by people who love the show because I worked with them. I recorded a lot of voice Stuff for them. And their devotion to the short and the detail that they have in the game, you can actually go back through all the doctors, back through all the Tardises. It's an amazing thing. When you go back to [UNKNOWN], it goes into black and white. [LAUGH] Which is such a brilliant idea. Fantastic. You both will get your likeness in Lego now. What's the strangest piece of memorabilia you've ever seen your face on? A cushion. A hand made cushion, that someone made out of felt, and put a likeness, let's say, a likeness of me On that cushion. So the idea that you'll be lolling around in your house, relaxing, leaning back on large cushions with pictures of yourself on them is a bit of an odd idea but I could do that if I wanted cause I have the cushions. [LAUGH] The Doctor is obviously joining Batman and Gandolf, these huge cultural figures in other dimensions. Yeah. How do you feel about Dr. Who kind of taking that huge stage now? Moving from kind of niche sifi show to something much grander.>> I think it seems natural. I think that's sort of where he belongs now. The thing about the doctor, Dr. Who is, I think it still retains it's Its cult core. I always think even though we have a huge amount of fans now of the show, I think they all have their own very personal very intimate relationship with it, which I think is really important. Because there's something at the heart of it that appeals to people, and it's not always the same thing. You know if you ask people why they like Doctor Who they'll have lots of different ideas about it and I think that you know what any successful show needs is a very personal thing at its heart. But it's hard I think to protect that when the show's getting bigger and bigger and bigger, and that's sort of what our job is, is to make sure we're sincere and true to it as it expands into this, you know, I hate the word brand But there it is, that's what most of these characters are. Thank you very much for joining us, Peter. My pleasure. For the full interview, check out cnet.com. [MUSIC]
