The BBC One just announced today that actor Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It) will be replacing Matt Smith as the 12th Doctor on Doctor Who.
Capaldi was considered the favorite leading up to the announcement today. While I’m not as familiar to the actor as some, his hilarious performance in In the Loop gives me confidence that the actor will be a competent choice for the role.
Smith announced that he was leaving the show two months ago. He’ll be making his last appearance as the Doctor during this year’s Christmas special.
