He’s the twelfth Doctor. Peter Capaldi who comes from Glasgow, Scotland was one of the favourites for the role. Replacing Matt Smith who passes on the sonic screwdriver after four years.
Personally I could have bet all the fishfingers and custard in the galaxy that the new Doctor was going to be Scottish. Steve Moffat the man in charge of the show at the moment is also Scottish and has been accused in the past of having a heavy Scottish influence.
The clues were there though as Peter Capaldi played a W.H.O doctor in World War Z. He is no stranger to the Doctor Who universe having played Randall Brown and John Frobisher in Torchwood.
Bring back RTD and bring back Torchwood.
