Oh You've Heard?: Peter Capaldi Is The New Doctor Who

August 5, 2013


I'm sure everybody who cares already knows, but potential real-life wizard Peter Capaldi has been chosen to play the new Doctor Who. He is the twelfth actor to play The Doctor. Me? I've played doctor with my girlfriend before. She was like, "Doctor, please, I need a full physical -- and make it thorough." and I was all, "Let me get my stethoscope, I think you might seriously have a heart murmur."

Thanks to everyone who sent this, about half of which expressed disappointment. WELCOME TO LIFE.

    So long as he's pretty much the same as Malcom Tucker, than he'll be the best doctor ever.

  • Aridante

    He's not familiar to me, but I do remember him as the WHO doctor from WWZ.
    Seems strange to see an older actor take on the role after almost 10 years worth of younger-ish guys, but I'm interested to see what he brings to the table.

  • Jadis

    I think he looks evil, but I will give him a chance.

  • Matty Spinny

    i just don't like the fact that he was a character in one of the prior episodes, along with being in torchwood.
    'The Fires of Pompeii'
    'Children of Earth'

    i mean i'm used to seeing companions popping up in past episodes (past or future relatives) but the doctor? that's a little much. i mean if Moffett wants to tie it in im all for it and that would be awesome. but if nothing is said about it then im a little erking about it.

    The Sixth Doctor was in a previous ep of DW before it became the Doctor :)

  • Matty Spinny

    i'm happy you watched the bbc special of the new doctor introduction but if u actually watched the old series you'd know that the doctor crossed his time line in that episode and he wasn't a side character but himself unbeknownst to himself at the time. that's why he says that he tries not to cross his own time line... tries not to, being the key. i just hope they give a two line support to why he was there or something about it. not leaving it just up in the air. you know like, oh i just went to see an old friend Donna... she made a volcano explode, it was fun.

  • Neat.

    He should keep the van dyke ;-)

    it's THE NEW DOCTOR not the new Doctor Who... Gosh! I'm not even a fan and I know that...

  • Tyler AitchKay

    People not excited for Capaldi to play the doctor can fuck the fuck off

    Fuckity bye

  • WhiteEagle2

    It would be more fair to say everyone that is upset/enraged by Capaldi can "fuck the fuck off".

    I have no reason to be excited for Capaldi (other than he looks like an older tennant). However, I am excited for The Doctor to change. I haven't been disappointed by a regeneration yet.

  • Hayley Prychun Rodgers

    Well, I am not excited per say. I am intrigued, but I don't know him, so I don't know what to expect,
