WARNING: The following story contains spoilers!

Speaking on the surprise cameo of Matt Smith’s Doctor, he said: “It just felt utterly right for what we were planning for Peter’s Doctor - and right for Matt’s Doctor that he would think of that as he was just about ready to go out the door. And you think, well it’s never been done before - why not?”

“I did wonder. I wondered when we sat in the cutting room, ‘Does this seem strange?’ And then you remember you’re making Doctor Who and you go, ‘Yes this does seem strange - that’s absolutely fine!’”

Moffat also confirmed that the scene was shot during filming of the 2013 Christmas Special: “We shot that on the set of ‘The Time of the Doctor’, which meant I had to write that scene first and then fill in some gumph about clockwork robots.”

Capaldi also commented on the cameo: “I love Matt, I think he’s fantastic. He had a great kind of wisdom about him; he had this great combination of youthfulness and this very old soul, which is very unique, so I was delighted that he showed up.”

Doctor Who Series 8 continues on Saturday, 30th August at 7:30pm on BBC One.

Peter Capaldi has admitted that he initially thought he was too old be the Twelfth Doctor.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Capaldi said that he expected Matt Smith to be replaced by an actor who is more of a similar age.

“I wouldn’t have thought it would be me - because of my age,” he confessed. “I would have thought they were automatically heading younger.”

However, he added: “I’m technically too young for the part, because he’s over 2,000 years old.”

Doctor Who Series 8 will begin on Saturday, 23rd August on BBC One.
