A few days ago Matt Smith said to the public that he will not continue playing the role of “Doctor Who” in the same-titled successful series. Many names have been heard from time to time for the next Doctor, such as Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Ben Daniels (Cutting It) and Andrew Scott (Sherlock), with the excitement of the fans to be bigger and bigger. Finally, they announced that Peter Capaldi will be Doctor Who.
The 55-year-old Scottish actor, who has won an Oscar Award for his work as screenwriter and director in the short film “Franz Kafka’s: It’s a a unique Wonderful Life”, but also for his participation to the “World War Z” and “In the loop”, said it is a great honor to participate in this production and he is eager to begin, as he is a great fan of the series. The choice of Capaldi is really excellent as we are talking about a veteran actor, who will certainly write his own history in the series. The first episode will released on December 25, which will become the 50th anniversary of the series and where Smith will appear for the last time.
