Habemus Medicum - We Have a New Doctor
The new Doctor - the Twelfth Doctor - for Doctor Who will be Peter Capaldi, a Scottish Oscar-winner who's most famous for playing Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It. I haven't seen Thick, but that character seems to be a famous asshole.
So here are my thoughts:
1. Thank God they've cast a Doctor who's old enough to shave. No disrespect to Matt Smith...
2. This is an actor whose physiognomy looks better suited to the Master than the Doctor. Interesting!
3. Is it just me, or does he look like he could be David Tennant's dad? Maybe it's a pale Scottish thing?
