And the Next Doctor is… Peter Capaldi

Capaldi Crop SmAs announced on Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor.

Peter Capaldi will replace Matt Smith as the Doctor in Doctor Who.   The last two Doctors were unusually young, with Smith being the youngest ever Doctor in the show’s fifty year history.

The casting of Capaldi is both a traditionalist throwback, and also kind  of a risk, considering how the series’ popularity has exploded in recent years.  Newer fans have known nothing but young Doctors, so this new guy is going to be a significant shift.
