No it is not! But! That’s just fine.
Welcome, welcome, welcome, Peter Capaldi.
I have to admit I was a little more than anxious for this announcement. Between soon to be moving away for college (two weeks, I am not ready for this, kids) and this, I’ve been a little bit of a wreck. So, admittedly, I came into the fandom a little late, as far as the revival in 2005 goes, so by the time I really started watching it, Matt Smith was already in place as the doctor (although the first episode I ever watched had Chris in it, and he’s fucking fantastic). But Matt is my doctor. I absolutely love him, his acting is great, and I’m selfish and don’t want to see him go.
However, I trust him, because he is my doctor, and he trusts Peter Capaldi and wishes him the best. So I will stand by my doctor, and I wish Peter the best of luck with this once in a lifetime role. It’ll be an honor to see him.
So kids, tell me: who was YOUR doctor? Who did you want to see as 12? What’s your reaction to Peter?
There is part of you that says ‘I never want to go’
