LONDON: Benedict Cumberbatch has said Peter Capaldi will be a “class act” as the new Time Lord in Doctor Who. Scottish actor Peter took on the lead role in the hit BBC show at Christmas, and was recently pictured riding a fake horse on the set of the sci-fi series. Benedict, who starred with Peter in The Fifth Estate, has said that he cannot wait to see what the actor does with the role. He told The Big Issue: “[It’s] great news. I’m very excited to see him in Doctor Who... He is a class act, Peter, and a great actor.”–BN
