BBC has just announced the 12th Doctor will be none other than…
Peter Capaldi! What an excellent choice. We needed an older Doctor – somebody wry and dark to follow up Matt Smith’s wonderfully charming but far-too-sweet Eleven. Hopefully this’ll mean the writing next season will take on a darker turn and we’ll go back to the days of such episodes as Midnight, The Hollow Child, Silence in the Library and The God Complex.
