Diddly-dum, diddly-dum, diddly-dum, dum dum diddle diddly-dum, diddly-dum....
So the BBC have announced that Peter Capaldi will replace Matt Smith as The Doctor. A good choice, though like many other folk I had been hoping for a female Doctor, or perhaps a black or Asian one. (I still reckon Alison Janney would be great, though perhaps female AND American would be a step too far even for a Time Lord.)
In Britain at least, Capaldi is best known for his role as Malcolm Tucker, the utterly foul-mouthed spin doctor in the BBC comedy series The Thick Of It (and its film spin-off In The Loop). Inevitably, as soon as his name was announced the humorous "mash-ups" of Tucker and the Doctor began to appear.
The Crow Road, in which he plays Rory. I'm sure he'll be a marvellous Doctor.
