well i disagree, the doctor changes his whole genetic makeup each time he regenerates there's no reason why it can't be a woman and people would soon enough get used to it just as it happens every single regeneration.

^To be fair, he's an alien who can take any physical form, but always seems to be a white british man. :tongue:

 

I'm happy with the choice, looking forward to seeing him in the role. I was snooping around wikipedia and I noticed he was credited as WHO Doctor in World War Z.

Well, because it's a British tv show. Now if they wanted to have Will Smith be the Doctor, I'd be okay with that.

there are plenty of black british actors who would have been brilliant, ie Idris Elba, Chiwetel Ejiofor etc.

I will dig it up, I seen something months ago on Digital spy. I think Moffart was going on about it.

The new Doctor I think as a clue is the same age as the 1st doctor 50 years ago when he started the role.

I don't know much about Peter Capaldi (other than he was Sid's dad in Skins) so I'll be interested to see if he's any good.

 

I like the idea of an older Doctor, but apparently a lot of fangirls aren't too happy about it :rolleyes:

Doctor Who unveiling attracts 6.2 million viewers

Peter Capaldi was revealed as the new Doctor on a special programme hosted by Zoe Ball

 

Doctor Who unveiling attracts 6.2 million viewers

 

An average of 6.2 million viewers tuned in to BBC One on Sunday to see Scots actor Peter Capaldi unveiled as the 12th Doctor.

 

The half-hour programme, hosted by Zoe Ball, was up against ITV game show Tipping Point and the swimming world championships on BBC Two. The audience peaked at 6.9 million and a enjoyed a 30% share of all viewers.

 

However the format, the first time the Doctor has been announced with such fanfare, left some critics unimpressed. Writing in the Daily Mail Jim Shelley called it "truly excruciating".

 

"Presenter Zoe Ball demonstrated why we never see her on mainstream TV anymore, giving a display of such gushing inanity she made Claudia Winkleman look like Sylvia Plath, even introducing 'our very special guest - the Tardis'. I think she was just excited to be on Saturday (sic) telly as peak time again."

 

The show was "less a casting announcement than a global product launch," said The Telegraph's Robert Colvile, "an exercise in brand-management equivalent to the unveiling of the latest iPhone". The Independent referred to the "25 excruciating minutes of teasing involving a Doctor Who nostalgia fest presented by Zoe Ball, that played out like a segment of Live & Kicking".

 

The show was a mix of live guests including former Doctor Peter Davison and actor Bernard Cribbins and filmed segments. In its live blog, The Guardian questioned the quality of guests: "Zoe is talking to Peter Davison (who was the Doctor once), the little boy from Outnumbered (because he went to visit a doctor once) and Liza Tarbuck (because her name has the letter C in it, and so does the word 'doctor')."

 

Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor, which was simulcast on BBC America, was the brainchild of Charlotte Moore, the newly appointed controller of BBC One.
