Doctor Who: the new Doctor will be played by…

… Peter Capaldi !!!

congratulations Peter 🙂

After rounds of speculation and names thrown up in the air such as Peter Capaldi, Ben Daniels, Daniel Rigby, Rory Kinnear, David Harewood, Olivia Colman, Dame Helen Mirren, Hugh Grant and even, er, Alan Partridge (Tardises or Tardi anyone?), and not to forget the BBC hyping up the announcement via a live TV show… we finally have the name of the new actor who will step into the latest time travellin’ boots/brogues/Converse/wellygogs/sandals of the Timelord, following the departure of Matt Smith from the series (cheers Matt for the good work btw!).

I’m looking forward – as I always do with DW – to welcoming the new actor and whatever new persona is brought to the character following a regeneration.

To celebrate, here is a rather nice Doctor Who Weekly advert all the way from 1980!
