Who is the next Doctor Who?

With high-placed bets and speculation for several days leading up to the announcement of who would portray the next Dr. Who, BBC veteran actor Peter Capaldi has won the coveted role of the 12th Doctor.  Announced Sunday on a special program, “Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor” hosted by Zoe Ball, the new Doctor was revealed for the first time during a live television announcement.


The 12th Doctor – Peter Capaldi

Peter Capaldi is no stranger to the BBC and is probably best known for his portrayal of foul-mouthed, Malcolm Tucker in the BBC series, “The Thick of It”. He’s also no stranger to Dr. Who, having performed in “The Fires of Pompeii” and popular “Who” spin-off “Torchwood”. He is recreating a history of sorts 50 years later in taking on the role of the Doctor at the same age – 55 – of William Hartnell who portrayed the first incarnation of the Doctor in 1963.  Of the announcement, Scottish-born actor Capaldi stated, “Being asked to play the Doctor is an amazing privilege.  Like the Doctor himself, I find myself in a state of utter terror and delight.  I can’t wait to get started.”

Capaldi’s role as the 12th Doctor will follow a very busy year for Doctor Who, celebrating the upcoming 50th Anniversary of the show in November in London and a much-anticipated special Anniversary episode starring outgoing Doctor, Matt Smith, previous Doctor, David Tennant and venerated actor, John Hurt.

    This gave me a giggle. I will admit, I only very rcltneey discovered Doctor Who (Christopher Eccleston was my first doctor), but I can definitely agree with you appearance is not a necessity at all. I love the Doctor because he’s witty and fun and a bit insane, while also being lovable and compassionate. If you’re watching a show like this just because the actor is cute? yeah, you’ve definitely missed the point!
