We have a new Doctor!

So due to Reasons (some good, some bad) I never have taken the time and gotten my Seattle post written like I planned
I could not let today's Doctor Who announcement go by without comment, so I'm using it as an excuse to post one of those trip pictures.
At the EMP I got to see a Dalek in person, I think they keep it under glass so geeky fangirls like me will keep hands off. No waking the Dalek! (For the record, that bump was already missing when I got there)
I was attempting to look scared, but truth is that I was so damned excited I couldn't hardly wipe the stupid grin off my face.
Why is this relevant to the announcement, besides the fact that it's Who related?
Unlike last regeneration, when I was much more scared about the choice and worried Matt Smith couldn't pull it off THIS TIME I've learned a bit of trust. Young as he is and as much as some of us worried, I think Matt Smith rocked the role. His Doctor has an ability to flip from the ridiculous goofball, to a look that makes you believe there are hundreds of years behind those eyes and then back to silly again. All In a blink (Okay bad choice of word! Don't blink!)
So while I was nervous to hear who it would be, there was a lot more excitement behind it. Eleven will be missed (and I'm sorry I ever doubted him) but I can't wait to see what they do with this next generation.
And in case you missed it, the next Doctor will be Peter Capaldi
(Picture shamelessly taken from the official FB page)
Not the first time, they've cast a character with someone who has been on the show before. They haven't said if the DW and TW characters will relate to his character as The Doctor, but I'm guessing not.


  1. I love your expression in the picture!! I LOVED Matt Smith...LOVED. I know I've seen Capaldi in something else and I can't think what it is. I bet he'll be great! (Off to Google and see if I can figure it out!) --Lisa

    1. Terror SQUEEE just doesn't mix LOL
      I'm pretty sure Capaldi is one of the most googled celebs this week, and he has been in quite a few things!
