‘Doctor Who’ showrunner Steven Moffat announces who will be taking on the role of the Twelfth Doctor

Doctor Who

One of the longest running science fiction tv shows has been the British serial Doctor Who, which has created nearly 30 seasons since its beginning in 1963, with successful spinoff series such as Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures to its credit as well. One of the reasons behind the show’s longevity has been the central character’s ability to regenerate into different physical forms, allowing the show to switch out the lead actor every so often. Current lead actor Matt Smith the 11th actor to take on the role, made a surprise announcement earlier this year that the show’s Christmas special would be his last go-round in the role, and many people began speculating as to who would step in to fill the shows of the 12th Doctor. Showrunner Steven Moffat ended the speculation today by announcing who would be taking over the part, with the role of the Twelfth Doctor going to Peter Capaldi.
