Peter Capaldi Sees Himself As Inspector Blake
Outgoing Doctor Who Peter Capaldi has his eye on another iconic role. The departing Time Lord has admitted he would love to play Cyril ‘Blakey’ Blake in a reboot of classic sitcom, ‘On The Buses’.
Peter, whose last episode as The Doctor airs on Christmas Day, has revealed he is hoping to get the show’s outgoing boss Steven Moffat to bring back the comedy series, now that he is leaving ‘Doctor Who’ too.
Speaking to The Sun Newspaper, he said: “I want them to do On The Buses again. I’m trying to encourage them to do it.”
And he said he had his eye on the role of nosy bus inspector Cyril “Blakey” Blake.
He added: “I have got a Blakey in me.”
Moffat, 55, has said he would be interested in remaking the show.
He said: “We are working our way through the classics, so it is bound to come up.”
Despite the enthusiasm from the pair at the time of writing there are no firm plans to re-booy the classic.
