The previous Doctor was engaged in a close relationship with his sidekick Clara that even led to a passionate kiss.
But Capaldi, 56, insisted his Time Lord would not be following in Matt Smith’s footsteps by getting intimate with 28-year-old Coleman’s character.
"There’ll be no flirting, that’s for sure," he told the Sunday Times Magazine. "It’s not what this Doctor’s concerned with. It’s quite a fun relationship, but no, I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments’. I think there was a bit of tension with that at first, but I was absolutely adamant.”
The Papa-Nicole comment relates to a series of 1990s Renault Clio car adverts which hinted at a romance between an older man and a younger woman, before they were revealed to be father and daughter.
Capaldi also had good news for those Doctor Who purists who believe the show’s storylines have become over the top.
"It’s going to be a bit different from what we’ve seen over recent years. A bit more gravity," he said. "Some situations are more sombre and I think there are more rooted dramatic scenes. Over the past two or three years, which I’ve loved, there has often been a breathless vigour; we still have that attack, but we have another level of drama, another tone. And the scenes are longer.”
"I didn’t want to be Doctor Who in a Doctor Who I didn’t like," he said. "I had to be convinced the show was going in a direction I was interested in.

1. Twelve said that Wrong Jamie could not use the multiverse-altering potential of the TARDIS to travel through space and time to collect All the Hats just because he was bored. This is Wrong Jamie’s revenge.
2. Wrong Jamie does not want to know why Jayne from Firefly’s cunning hat is in the TARDIS’s collection.
3. Clara would look super cute in a ushanka.
4. Lix’s coat is from Alexander McQueen. I want this coat.
The only height difference that matters
The Piano Guys play Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” mixed with Gustav’s Holsts’s “Jupiter”.
Just listen to it. It’s amazing.
I heard zero Jupiter actually, and I know that piece backwards and forwards. This is a sham.
the actual video itself doesnt say anything about jupiter in the title so op got it wrong…
The cello melody at the very beginning is from the hymn-like middle section of “Jupiter.” Parts of the same section are also cleverly slipped in at 2:25 and 3:32.

Oh God, I just assumed they’d continue at a weekly pace! I’ve gotten used to this weekly injection, they can’t take it from me now?!
Wot wot? No utopia this week?
It’s on for this week, but this and I&R’s comment was enough to make me doubt the future.
Whoops! Did not mean to cause confusion. I just realized, as I wrote that post, that I didn’t know if s2 was slated for six episodes like s1 (given the first week’s double-whammy I thought, idk, maybe there are seven) and was literally too lazy to google it. BUT if you look here it says that the finale is scheduled for August 12th, so, that’s that.
So uh. When should we hang, gang?
the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.
Imagine your icon being your sole companion in the zombie apocalypse. They have all the powers they have in the movie/game/show they’re from.
You know what, I think I might actually live. Dugdale’s a nervous dude, but he does what he needs to do.

An eternity too late, I know, but I was in Finland and ye all that jazz. So are you guys watching it live Tuesdays or what?
no not really lol, it’s pretty hard to with us all on different timezones/the liveness factor etc. ! i wanna watch the finale with you guys tho, for sure!!
I did pretty well with the first two episodes, just a day late, but tbh I’ve been so busy this week I still haven’t seen the third one.
Do we know the finale date? Is it six episodes again? We seriously should attempt some kind of communal viewing or at least a post-viewing chat :)
