Peter Capaldi is a lifelong Doctor Who fan, and has even appeared on the show in the episode The Fires of Pompeii. He also had a huge role in the third season of Torchwood as John Frobisher. Now, at the end of this year's Christmas special, he will start his tenure on board the TARDIS.
Even though David Tennant is 'my' Doctor, I've liked Matt Smith. This will be an interesting change, and one that could be very exciting. I will say I'm a bit disappointed they didn't go with a riskier choice, but I imagine Peter will do a fine job.
Thoughts, concerns, we'd love to hear what everyone thinks of this news.
