Peter Capaldi compares Doctor Who and The Suicide Squad

After spending three seasons as the eponymous Doctor, Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi is no stranger to alien monsters as he has seen everything till now. He appeared in Suicide Squad trailer with what looked like screwdriver handles sticking out of his head and this not something which we can’t accept. Both the projects are quite different from each other. Capaldi explained to Digital Spy: “[The Suicide Squad] was totally different [to Doctor Who] because it was so much bigger. I mean that everything about it was bigger. And also, you know, we had this incredible cast.”

“I’d turn around and see, you know, Margot, and Idris and John, and David Dastmalchian, you know, they were just a sensational group of people to be around.”

But that one element which really made the difference was: “And also there was more money!”

He added: “With Doctor Who, we don’t really have enough – everything on Doctor Who falls to pieces, all of the props fall to pieces and the costumes have to be stuck together with duct tape and velcro and stuff.

“With this, everybody looked as good in real life as they look in the movies. They weren’t all just held together with safety pins.”

One thing which made Doctor Who more appealing is its less than slick production quality (which, we grant, has improved tremendously over the years). Capaldi said, “That’s what I like, [about Doctor Who], I like the kind of B movie kind of cobbled together, quality of it. That it’s really there’s never really quite enough money, but the ideas are often very special, that’s what I like – but it’s also nice to be somewhere where they do have enough money to make the monsters look… scary.”

We cannot agree more as the creatures or even the humans in the psychotic world of Harley are quite scary but what if these scary monsters actually try to save the world by doing anything and everything nasty then we can bear this much. The fans are pumped to see the team of monsters once again.

The Suicide Squad is released in UK cinemas on July 30. It is to be released in US cinemas on August 5 and is available to watch on HBO Max in the US on August 6.
