Peter Capaldi: Gallifreyan Spring Chicken!

At age 55, Peter Capaldi was the oldest actor cast* in the lead role on DOCTOR WHO (until John Hurt, 73, became the War Doctor), but Capaldi insists that he’s actually too young for the role — a declaration backed up by show-runner Steven Moffat.

*Yes, I know William Hartnell also assumed the role at age 55, but this is neither here nor there.
