Peter Capaldi is Cardinal Richelieu: Though all set to save the universe as the Doctor in the upcoming eight series of 'Doctor Who', Peter Capaldi recently told What's On TV that, in fact, he still loves to play the bad guy. 'I love walking around in black leather outfits and generally playing a nasty piece of work', he told the TV guide.
'I get to poison and torture people and have them killed... what more could you ask for?' Cardinal Richelieu certainly is evil, though often just as deceived as he is deceitful, but playing him wasn't always a pain-free experience. 'I myself suffered a nasty dislocated thumb, but embarrassingly not from swinging a sword around', Peter revealed. 'Instead, my injury came from a domestic the cardinal was having with Milady, Maimie McCoy. I threw her against the wall not realising I'd caught my thumb in her large frock. I felt a jab of pain. And when the director said "cut" I looked down and saw my thumb was on the wrong way round. Nasty. The lesson clearly was, never get into a fight with Maimie McCoy.'
