Doctor Who: Sonic Screwdriver or Tardis? Peter Capaldi must choose

21 August 2014 Last updated at 06:48 BST

The wait is nearly over: the new series of Dr Who is nearly upon us.

We took ten young Doctor Who fans to get a tour behind the scenes where the magic happens, on the set of the Tardis itself.

And when the Doctor himself - Peter Capaldi - turned up, they got the chance to ask him some questions from Newsround viewers.

Watch the video to find out:

  • how he thinks he'll develop the Doctor's character;
  • how he's been a fan of the show since he was five;
  • where he'd go if he could travel anywhere in time;
  • and which he would choose out of the Sonic Screwdriver and the Tardis!

Check back on Friday morning for the final part of the interview: will there ever be a female Doctor?

Part one: Was Peter nervous about taking over from Matt Smith?
