Actor Peter Capaldi was named as Matt Smith’s successor for the title role on Doctor Who. Capaldi will enter the TARDIS during the Christmas episode this winter, following the show’s fiftieth anniversary special. Capaldi has previously appeared on Doctor Who in the episode “The Fires of Pompeii” in 2008 as well as in Torchwood: Children of Earth. Capaldi has a long career in British film and television. Coincidentally, his most recently released role, in World War Z lists him as played “W.H.O. Doctor.” At 55, Capaldi is the same age Willian Hartnell was when the show premiered in 1963.
