Jenna and Peter for EW

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – For die-hard Doctor Who fans, it can seem like a very long wait for new episodes, especially for those without a time-traveling police box at their disposal. But with the ninth season premiering this Saturday, the Doctor is nearly in. We sat down with the show’s stars Peter Capaldi (going into his second season) and Jenna Coleman (going into her third — and last) to discuss their experience scampering around the universe for another year.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You are filming your second season together. How’s the working relationship now?
PETER CAPALDI:
Us personally? [Sighs and rolls eyes] I can barely stand to be here with her.
JENNA COLEMAN: I knew it!
CAPALDI: Jenna’s fabulous. I always like when we get back to the TARDIS and it’s just us. We have huge adventures where gigantic things have happened, but personally I’m always most pleased when we are doing our stuff in the TARDIS.

So at this point have you fiddled with all the various buttons and levers?
COLEMAN:
I have. Peter has a system and a method. I like to press things, and Peter looks very disapprovingly at me.
CAPALDI: I’m like, “Get your hand off of that! That’s
 not what that one does!” I thought it was important 
 to have a logic to the switches, so I worked out a rough geography of what each one does. The thing about the TARDIS is that it has a telepathic and organic quality about it as well as a mechanical one.

Sure, like a Prius.
CAPALDI:
Exactly. So it has a relationship with each individual Doctor. So one can alter the purpose of a specific switch.

Would you ever ask Jenna, “How did the last guy do it?” Or is that like asking about an ex?
CAPALDI:
Pshaw! I’d never ask how to work the TARDIS. Ever. Never need to. When I first arrived, the props man very kindly showed me around the TARDIS and showed me how to operate it and I didn’t want to say, “You don’t have to show me any of this stuff, I know exactly how to drive this beast.”

What does season 9 look like for Clara and the Doctor?
COLEMAN:
They’ve become adrenaline junkies. Especially Clara. She doesn’t fear her own mortality in the same way anymore, so with that reckless abandon comes quite a lot of danger. Especially when you have two 
 similar minds without the person to say, “You guys…”
CAPALDI: I think they’re very bonded. The Doctor’s quite a tricky part to play because, if you go back to Chris Eccleston’s first episode, he says that he could see all that ever was and all that ever is and all that ever will be and that drove him mad. I took that to mean that he could see the future and the past, so he knows the fate of his companions, and that’s quite a difficult knowledge to have. So this season especially, he’s decided to enjoy what good times are available to him. You only live once, even if you’re 2,500 years old. So grab it and embrace it and hold it tight, because it’s dark outside.
COLEMAN: Scottish doom!
CAPALDI: She says I’m full of Scottish doom.

USA TODAY – The socially awkward Doctor could definitely learn some social skills from actors Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, who play the Doctor and his companion, Clara Oswald, respectively, on BBC America’s Doctor Who.

The co-stars chat and joke playfully on a hotel roof during a summer hotel-roof photo shoot to promote the new season (Saturday, 9 p.m. ET/PT). It will be Capaldi’s second season on the 52-year-old British sci-fi franchise and Coleman’s third and last: She confirmed to BBC Radio 1 Friday that she will be leaving the series later this season.

Clara had eroded the Doctor’s standoffish nature by late last season, and their bonding will continue on the popular series, which last season marked its biggest audience (2.2 million viewers).

“The Doctor is a great defender of mankind but he doesn’t really want to personally know that many of them,” says Capaldi. “Clara humanizes the Doctor. … His affection for Clara is very, very deep, so he listens to what she has to say.”

Coleman, who played the companion to the previous Doctor (Matt Smith), says the transition from Smith to Capaldi was smooth, aside from adjusting to the Doctor’s unique ability to regenerate into a different person and actor.

“It’s not often you have a scene where the lead actor you’re working with changes his face and person mid-scene, so that was quite an unusual day,” she says. “But we had a brilliant working relationship immediately.”

Executive producer Steven Moffat says the two had instant chemistry, which isn’t always the case. Changing actors involves risk, especially when casting a Doctor who isn’t “another quirkily handsome young man with interesting hair.”

Capaldi’s Doctor intrigues Moffat. “While he’s quite forbidding looking, there’s a sense of some emotional turbulence about him. You sort of think he’s on fire and he looks more hurtable, curiously, than David (Tennant) or Matt,” the two previous Doctors.

Jenna and Peter for Radio Times

RADIO TIMES – When you get Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in a room together to talk Doctor Who, the warmth and affection between them really comes through.

In the new issue of Radio Times magazine the cover stars discuss the relationship between Clara and the Doctor and how their own friendship has burgeoned during their time together on the show.

Capaldi has many kind words for his co-star, and even goes so far as to say that he’s not sure the dynamic between the Twelfth Doctor and his companion would have worked with any other actress.

“It has no equivalent in TV or fiction, a friendship between an alien creature and an extremely bright, clever and brave young woman,” says Capaldi. “It’s unusual for a man of my age to be friendly with such a youthful lady. She wants to go out into the universe and enjoy herself, happy to be reckless and in danger.

“I was so lucky it was Jenna because it might not have worked with anyone else. It’s tricky to come into a long-established show, especially as the lead, and Jenna has proved to be a wonderful actress and friend.” (source)
