Doctor Who Announces the Twelfth Doctor! Torchwood's Peter Capaldi is Matt Smith's Successor

Doctor Who finally reveals its twelfth doctor. After months of fan speculation following the announcement that current Doctor Matt Smith would be leaving the British scifi drama, BBC America has revealed that Peter Capaldi is next in line to serve as Time Lord. The 55-year-old Scottish actor, who has previously appeared on Skins and Torchwood, will make an appearance in this year's Christmas special, which also marks Matt Smith's last stint as the Doctor. "It's so wonderful not to keep this secret any longer," says Capaldi of the casting news. "I haven't played Doctor Who since I was 9 on the playground."
