Well yesterday we had the announcement of the election for September 7 and for some of us that is the big news item of the week however those of us with a moire fantastical view of the multi-verse the announcement of far more importance is just who will be piloting the Tardis now that Matt Smith has decided to pass on the key. With great fanfare and run live on the ABC ( at 4am local time ) we now know that its going to be Peter Capaldi and I for one look forward to a Doctor with a bit more “guts” that the rather whimpy Matt Smith . Don’t get me wrong I have enjoyed Smith’s imagining of the character of the doctor his whimsy was the perfect weather change to the the rather tortured Time Lord when David Tennant filled the Doctor’s boots but whimsy can only take you so far before it becomes quite annoying.
Oh and wouldn’t it be nice if the Doctor retained Capaldi’s lovely Scottish brogue?
