Peter Capaldi, the fantastic Scottish actor most well-known as foul-mouthed political spindoctor Malcolm Tucker, is to be the new Doctor Who. Widely tipped for the role, Capaldi, at 55, is the same age as original doctor William Hartnell was in the very first season, half a century ago.
"It's so wonderful not to keep this secret any longer, but it's been so fantastic," he said after the news was revealed on a live BBC One show.

It is not the first time Capaldi has appeared on the show - he played Roman merchant Caecilius in 2008 Doctor Who adventure The Fires of Pompeii.
