“Uhm … we are about to find out!”
Bad jokes aside, the Whovian cycle of life revolves around getting comfortable with the latest avatar of Doctor Who only to find out that a new one is around the corner!
When it was announced that Matt Smith would end his run as the Eleventh Doctor, it felt like the Daleks had invaded and caused an apocalypse! Recently, the BBC disclosed that the Twelfth Doctor would be announced on Sunday, August 4, 2013 … and the day is here!
As the “Doctor Who” franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary, there has been much speculation on who “will” be Doctor Who and who “should” be Doctor Who! Some have said that the penultimate Doctor should be portrayed by a woman and others say perhaps its time for a coloured Doctor. Cryptic tweets from different actors have been analysed and betting on particular actors has been stopped because those particular actors were considered as safe bets.
Well fangirls and fanboys, the time for speculation is over and the time for revelations is here! The latest avatar of the Time Lord will be portrayed by … drumroll … PETER CAPALDI!!
Remember that the Time Lord’s latest avatar will have some of the characteristics of the previous avatar.
What do you think of Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who? Are you looking forward to the latest season of Doctor Who? Let us know in the comments below!
