And the Twelfth Doctor is…

After a truly anxiety-inspiring wait, it has been announced that the twelfth incarnation of the Doctor will be played by Peter Capaldi!

doctor-who-peter-capaldiCapaldi previously appeared in Doctor Who in the S4 episode “Fires of Pompeii”, in the Torchwood Children of Earth series, and has played roles in several other shows.

From the live reveal special, he seems like a nice enough guy, and I wish him all the luck in the world with the role. However, I do find it depressing that, yet again, when given the chance to cast an actor of color or a woman in the role, the BBC opted to cast another old white guy. (Also, so much for my hopes that the twist of the reveal would be that Moffat, not Matt Smith, was leaving the show.)

About Lady Saika

"We lead frantic lives. Filled with needs and responsibilities, but completely devoid of any actual purpose. I say let’s try to enjoy the simple things. Life should be like a basket of chicken wings: salty, full of fat and vinegar, and surrounded by celery you’ll never actually eat, even when you’re greedily sopping up the last viscous streaks of buffalo sauce from the wax paper with your spit-stained index finger. Yes, that is as life should be, Night Vale."
