Peter Capaldi Announced as the 12th Doctor

The BBC have formally announced that Peter Capaldi will be playing the role of the 12th Doctor. The announcement came during a special live event on BBC One hosted by Zoe Ball. On the show were special guest stars, including past Doctors, companions, celebrities, Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, and Steven Moffat.

Peter will take over the role this Christmas and continue alongside Jenna-Louise Coleman in Series 8 next year. Various bookies had the odds set on him recently, and the odds were actually so good that they suspended betting. At age 55, he is the first older Doctor since Christopher Eccleston. He also played the Roman Caecilius in the 2008 episode The Fires of Pompeii.
