Peter Capaldi to direct Veep episodes

Peter Capaldi

In a new interview with ShortList Magazine, Peter Capaldi has been discussing projects outside of Doctor Who. The actor was asked about making a cameo in US sitcom Veep, which was created by Armando Iannucci, as old character Malcolm Tucker (from another Iannucci show, The Thick of It); he said:
"Sure, why not? It would be fine by me. I’m about to direct a couple of episodes, does that count? That seems like the compromise option.

The only thing is, Doctor Who takes up so much time, it doesn’t leave a lot of time to do other things. That whole team are all dear friends. I’d love to work with them at some point again."
Doctor Who Series 8 guest star Chris Addison has also directed episodes of Veep. Read the full interview HERE.
