I was one of those crazy fans that stayed up for the 4am Australian time Doctor Who announcement. I felt that this was a science fiction historical moment that I needed to witness live, so I decided to stay up for it.
The news is out now! Peter Capaldi is the Twelfth Doctor! From his brief interview, at first I was disappointed because I had expected a younger face. But I can understand why they chose an older actor, to track back to the more classic style when The Doctor was a lot older.
What I love about Peter Capaldi is that he is a true Whovian, ever since he was little. So despite my first impressions of disappointment, I’m actually quite curious how this will all pan out, and I am looking forward to seeing Peter Capaldi as The Doctor. I guess we shall see?
