Hi guys, I know we have a good group of people on the forums who follow Doctor Who regularly so really want to start some form of discussions on what your thoughts are on the newly announced Doctor. Earlier today it was announced that Peter Capaldi will take on the iconic role as the 12th Doctor in the BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. This is a big change for the series since its revival in 2005. Since the revival most of the actors who have portrayed the Doctor have been relatively quite young. Even though they were quite young and had to fill in some very big shoes, they all portrayed the roles magnificently with a little bit of charm and a presence that represented the character quite well. I for one am pleased that they went this route and hopefully will invite some more classic Doctor from the older serials. I'm hoping for a persona more in line with the first Doctor, a pompous know it all Time Lord with a little bit of humility mixed in. I have to admit haven't seen much of Peter Capaldi's work and am looking through youtube right now to get a sense of what he can bring to the role. Wonder what your guys take from this news today and what it could possibly mean to the future of the show both on the production and story side?
