There hasn’t been this much excitement since Matt Smith’s reveal as the 11th Doctor (though the recent season finale comes quite close!), but the anticipation is over: Peter Capaldi is the 12th Doctor!
So, who is Peter Capaldi? Well, he’s got an impressive resume starting way back in 1982 with “Living Apart Together,” though some of his more recent work includes World War Z (as the W.H.O. Doctor, ironically) and an appearance as Caecilius in a 2008 episode of Doctor Who. He’s quite a bit older than the recent Doctors, though it could just be a sign that the Doctor is just about to be finished, as the Doctor may see his final regeneration after Capaldi’s Doctor rendition.
