The 12th Doctor Recalls How He Felt Watching the First Broadcast of the New ‘Doctor Who’ Series on March 26, 2005

As part of the tenth anniversary of the new Doctor Who series, actor Peter Capaldi, who currently plays the magnificent 12th incarnation of “The Doctor”, recalls how he felt when he first watched the broadcast of the relaunched series simply entitled “Rose“.

And there it is, thank goodness, a blue police box just like you remember. …But of course the most dazzling thing is The Doctor who appears in the person of Christopher Eccleston and when he does the speech about the turn of the earth and being able to feel it, I thought, yeah, this guy is Doctor Who.

Capaldi also surprised visitors at the Doctor Who Experience to wish a very happy birthday to Doctor Who.
