Peter Capaldi Is The 12th Doctor

An absolute perfect casting decision, Peter Capaldi has been announced as the 12th (or 13tth if you consider John Hurt) incarnation of The Doctor taking over from Matt Smith.

He is best known for his role as foul-mouthed spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker in the BBC series The Thick of It.

"It's so wonderful not to keep this secret any longer, but it's been so fantastic," Capaldi said after the news was revealed on a live BBC One show.

The 55-year-old had been the bookmakers favourite to take on the role and had suspended all betting on the star on Friday.
