The 12th Doctor is Revealed!

Doctor Who Logo - 2010 VersionWe’ve been waiting for ages and the identity of the 12th Doctor has finally been revealed! Millions around the world tuned into BBC, BBC America and other channels to watch Doctor Who: Live for the big announcement.

Without further ado, your new Doctor is….

PETER CAPALDI! He says: “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.”

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer says: “It’s an incendiary combination: one of the most talented actors of his generation is about to play the best part on television. Peter Capaldi is in the TARDIS!” And companion, Jenna Coleman says “I’m so excited Peter Capaldi is the man taking on the challenge of becoming the Twelfth Doctor. With Steven’s writing and his talent I know we’ll be making an amazing show with an incredible incarnation of number 12. I can’t wait to start this new adventure!”

I’ll be honest, I had no idea who he was before this announcement but after looking him up (and cracking up a lot in the process), it’ll be interesting to see his take on this iconic role. Off to watch his other work to get a feel for him and looking forward to his take in December!

What do you guys think? Was Peter who you were expecting or was it someone else?
