Darth Vader Is Even Scarier When Voiced by Peter Capaldi



Before Peter Capaldi was the Doctor, he was Malcolm Tucker on The Thick of It and the movie spinoff In the Loop – a terrifying government fixer who turned violent, threatening swearing into an art form.

In this mashup video “Scot Wars,” we see just how much more of an “arsehole” Lord Vader would have been, had he been Scottish and operated like Malcolm. Darth Tucker is not as forgiving as Anakin, and he is decidedly NOT a good man, Clara.

Don’t make him show you his bollocking face.
