It’s official! The BBC has revealed one of the last-minute rumors to be true: Peter Capaldi will be taking the keys to the TARDIS. The 55-year-old Scottish actor has actually made an appearance in Doctor Who before, playing Caecilius (the patriarch of a family in Pompeii) in “The Fires of Pompeii,” the second episode of season four.
So, Whovians, how do we feel? Admittedly, I’m a smidge disappointed to see an older actor in the role, but I do trust Steven Moffat. He knows how to make us love ’em. Plus, I’ve heard a lot of good buzz about Capaldi. We’ll just have to wait and see what adventures this new regeneration brings!
