The fabulous Peter Capaldi had to come up with some fast yo-yo skills for Doctor Who recently, as they were needed on set. But being the somewhat uncoordinated person Capaldi says he often is, he thought he would never be able to learn the right yo-yo tricks in time for what was needed during shooting. So, yep, he was a bit panicked.

Luckily for Capaldi, he managed to get some tips from his daughter’s boyfriend, who taught him how to do yo-yo tricks in just one morning and, by early afternoon, he was ready.


Watch Peter Capaldi talk about his new yo-yo skills in the BBC Doctor Who video below. And isn’t he just lovely?
