Mackie had her own praises for Capaldi, who was not only a mentor in terms of welcoming her to the world of Doctor Who, but also for welcoming her to the world of working in TV in general.

Pearl Mackie hasn't even started her role as Peter Capaldi's assistant in Doctor Who but she's already got her sights on another big franchise: James Bond.

Ahead of Doctor Who's Season 10 debut this weekend, BBC America has unleashed a batch of intriguing new images from the premiere episode. "She asks him the questions that should be asked, and these are questions that have not been asked before", says Moffat. To become heroes because they're flung into that moment where you have no no alternative.

Fern Britton was left embarrassed on The One Show after its revealed she hates Doctor Who - in front of Pearl Mackie. First we were teased with the Ice Warriors, then the original 1966 version of the Cybermen, and finally the jaw dropping revelation that after a gap of seven years, John Simm will be returning as the Master.

Moffat also hints that Bill's questions are not just about why the Doctor does the things he does - she's trying to get to the ultimate answer: Who is the Doctor? "But I can not reveal it".

Garcia, though, added another when it mattered in the play-off. "It was so freaky that I didn't feel one nerve". He made a birdie on No. 14, and on the par-5 15th, he almost dropped his 8-iron directly into the cup.

The 58-year-old star, who hails from Glasgow, Scotland, has made quite the impression as the 12th and current incarnation of The Doctor in the BBC1 sci-fi series.

"Sad, because it has been a great experience", he says of leaving the TARDIS, his dimension-hopping phone booth.

"I think with that she brings a really fresh look at the Doctor and the universe that he presents". Since 1966, the conceit that the Doctor can shape-shift into a new body and personality has been built into the show's DNA. Someone powerful and ruthless is plotting to attract as many people to the fair as possible... but why? Now that Capaldi is an icon to children, he's keeping his past as Malcolm Tucker, the foul-mouthed spin doctor on the British government satire "The Thick of It", in check. No one sees it as just a job.

"They were like, "I don't know".
