Doctor Who: Will there ever be a female Doctor?

22 August 2014 Last updated at 07:05 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's different from all the other Doctors;
  • which aliens and monsters from the show scare him;
  • what his relationship with Clara is like;
  • and whether he thinks there'll ever be a female Doctor...
