It’s been just shy of four months since Peter Capaldi’s last moment as the 12th Doctor was screened at the end of the Doctor Who Christmas special, Twice Upon A Time. Thing is, not much has been seen of Capaldi since. He’s done some convention work, but other than that, his profile has been quite low.
“I stopped being anything. After four years it was a great opportunity to just say I’m going to rest. I’m going to stop working”, he told Perth Now, ahead of an appearance in Australia. “I’m playing guitar and going out for breakfast. I feel slightly guilty to say I’m enjoying it but I am”.
He added that “Doctor Who is a great show and experience but to be at the centre of that brand is a lot of work. There’s a lot more than just acting. It was hard to maintain that level of commitment with that schedule any longer. I tried my best to make the doctor come alive”.
He appeared with Pearl Mackie at the Supernova Comic Con And Gaming Expo in Australia over the weekend. He’s not yet committed to a new screen project to the best of our knowledge.
