We finally have a new Dr Who, as 55-year-old Peter Capaldi, best known as the foul-mouthed spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker, has been lined up to replace the pristine Matt Smith. That's quite a change. Is Dr Who going to get a bit more hard-core, at last?
I can't say I'm a fan of Dr Who, but if Capaldi plays the iconic British sci-fi hero with any sort of edge like he did Tucker in The Thick Of It, I might be a convert. But what do you think? Inspired choice or is the BBC off its rocker? [BBC]
