Good to see you back. They announced it. Peter Capaldi got the part. People have already said they're gonna stop watching because the Doctor's "too old" now, but thankfully it seems we're getting MORE people coming in to take their place, so it's all good xD
Welp, we'll know soon enough...they're airing it in the states as well. They're simulcasting it world-wide, so we'll know the second the British fans do.
And yeah, I could see him matching the Tenth Doctor in popularity. He has exactly what I want to see...he's not only talented, he TRULY wants the part, and not for the notoriety, but because he wants to be The Doctor, he wants to be a part of that legacy.
I hope he does. He's been on the show before (they've recycled actors before, so they wouldn't be above doing it again), and he's been a fan since he was a little kid. He even wrote letters to the production team and got to see the set as a kid. He cites that as his inspiration to go into acting. I can't think of anyone more qualified. It's a shame I've seen people complain that he's "too old" to do it...*coughFirstandThirdDoctorscough*
Lol ARE YOU TWILIGHT?? @_@ I tried doing the Fluttershy hypnosis and it ended up with me jumping at everything <.> Twilight was better but her personality was starting to merge in weird ways so I stopped >.> ans stuck to shadows XD
I know...especially since they established it as canon that Time Lords can change sex when they regenerate :/
Anyway, we should know soon what they decide to do. They've released the script they used for auditions, which leads me to suspect they're in the final stages of the decision. I heard a rumor that they're going for an early August announcement.
And yeah, that was what John Barrowman (he played a character named Jack Harkness) said. Have the 12th Doctor be a woman, and if people are THAT upset over it, have her regenerate at the end of the next season (or series, as they call them in Britain).
I hear ya. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to have serious problems with it. So many that I'd assume Moffat and the BBC would be too nervous at losing marketing opportunities to take the chance. I mean, I don't care either way. All I want is for the 12th Doctor to be someone truly prepared and excited for the role xD
Silence in the Library, eh? T'was an excellent two-parter.
