It has been confirmed that Peter Capaldi will be the new Doctor Who.
I have no opinions about this whatsoever.
I have seen virtually none of his work. I don’t even remember him in the one episode of Who he was already in. I assume the BBC think he’ll do a good job, otherwise they wouldn’t have cast him, but I have no real points of comparison on which to judge him.
This is why I find the people who are panicking over him being appointed to be a bit frustrating. Guys: wait until we actually see him PLAYING THE DOCTOR before you panic. Then, if he’s not very good in the role, I will stand by you as you scream to the heavens about it. But please wait until you actually see how it pans out before you do so, you’re giving me a headache.
