PETER CAPALDI has admitted he isn’t universally loved in his role on Doctor Who.

The Thick Of It star took over as the Time Lord in the most recent series of the BBC sci-fi hit, but although he has won over many fans, he conceded that not everyone agrees on any Doctor.

Talking to YouTube show Mr Media about taking the part, he said: “I sensed fate was at work. I would not have been being true to myself if I had turned away from it.”

Peter continued: “There’s nothing about it I find negative. It’s been a very positive experience because I’m working with great people and it’s a great, fun experience.

“It has its challenges and not everybody likes me but a lot of people do.”

MADONNA has defended the extreme language she used in hitting out at the hackers who leaked her music online.

The Queen of Pop took to Instagram last week to hit out at the hacking of unfinished demo tracks from her upcoming album calling it “artistic rape” and “a form of terrorism”, but then deleted the posts.

Madonna has now told the Guardian that she has been “living in a state of terror” since the leak, and revealed the tracks had very likely been stolen from her own personal computer.

She said: “Obviously there is a person, or a group of people behind this that were essentially terrorising me. I don’t want to sound alarming, but certainly that’s how I felt. It’s one thing if someone comes into your house and steals a painting off your wall: that’s also a violation, but, your work, as an artist, that’s devastating.

“I’m an artistic person, I’m very expressive. I’m sorry if words alarm people, but that’s what it felt like. It was not a consensual agreement. I did not say ‘hey, here’s my music, and it’s finished.’ It was theft.”

PETER JACKSON has revealed he has no plans to work on any superhero movies, because he doesn’t like comic books.

The Oscar-winning Lord Of The Rings filmmaker told Movie Fone he is looking to make small-scale films, now his Middle Earth adventure has come to an end with the final film in the Hobbit trilogy, The Battle Of The Five Armies.

“I don’t really like the Hollywood blockbuster bandwagon that exists right now,” he said.

“The industry and the advent of all the technology, has kind of lost its way. It’s become very franchise driven and superhero driven. I’ve never read a comic book in my life so I’m immediately at a disadvantage and I have no interest in that. So now it’s time for us to step back. We’re heading towards something of that scale.”

The 53-year-old director continued: “So, yes, I’m not going to head off and do a Marvel film. So if I don’t do a Marvel film, I don’t have any other choice - I’ve got to go make a small New Zealand movie!”
