It’s really hard to come into a role as a character much beloved by fans everywhere. It’s safe to say that fans of Doctor Who have been scrutinizing casting choices ever since the dawn of time. But fear not, because one favourite has scarily bounded to our screens with his scrutinising eyebrows and now takes the guise of the Doctor. That’s right, we are merely minutes away from seeing Peter Capaldi at the helm of the TARDIS and we are terribly excited, especially learning that it is going to take a darker tone, there will be no flirting and it’s bleeding Peter Capaldi! But where did this elusive man come from?
Honourable Mention: Peter Capaldi is on the verge of breaking Hollywood and no doubt will after his stint in the series, but he has played some incredible side characters in recent times. But for added effect, check out his Oscar-winning short as he directs and writes Franz Kafka’s It’s A Wonderful Life. It's genius.
