Peter Capaldi to replace Matt Smith

BBC announced Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor through its worldwide multicast live event. The half-hour event itself was unnecessary and cringeworthy. It would have been better if they made the announcement sooner and had more time with Capaldi himself. Or, you know, just do a 5 minute thing instead of making it a half hour spectacle.

I'm excited about Capaldi. I hate to say it, I think I'm getting bored of Matt Smith's Doctor, as brilliant as he is. I have no idea who Capaldi is; I've never watched any of his works, but that's about to change soon. It would be pretty interesting to see how much Capaldi's Wikipedia and IMDb page hits shot up today. And all of his works on Netflix (which I'm planning to watch soon).
