Though Matt Smith’s Eleven has yet to say a proper goodbye, the BBC seems quite anxious to usher him out, and to welcome in Twelve. This past Thursday it was announced we’d be hearing the big news via a live special today. Following a repeat of the soul-crushing loss of David Tennant’s Ten in “The End of Time,” “”Doctor Who Live” The Next Doctor,” host Zoe Ball revealed the Time Lord’s next incarnation as…

Peter Capaldi


A lifelong fan himself (been practicing for the role since “I was nine”), 55 year old Capaldi appeared in Series 4 (2008) as Caecillus, and in “Torchwood: Children of Earth” as John Frobisher; the “The Thick of It” and In the Loop star is a brilliant choice.

The “Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special” in 3D will air live November 23rd.

Here’s the BBC’s announcement, and Capaldi’s first appearance as the 12th Doctor.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) is thrilled we didn’t get a twelve…year old.
