I love Peter Capaldi. No, you don’t understand, I love him. A beautiful versatile and cathartic actor, this damn man has made me cry and howl with laughter so many times I think I have a hernia. He’s a fearless and emotional actor who is going to do amazing things with his new role as The Doctor. When the speculation was abuzz about who was going to be the next Doctor, we all had our favorites. When Capaldi’s name was thrown into the ring, I jumped on it. I thought it was a dream and far too good to be true. It was the perfect casting in my eye and when the announcement was made… I fell off my bed. It’s true. I flailed and screamed so much I genuinely fell off my bed. I was so excited and I am STILL so excited. When he briefly appeared in the 50th Anniversary episode I screamed again.
I fucking love Peter Capaldi.
His first proper adventure as the 12th Doctor premieres on the 23rd of this month on BBC One and it’s feature length. Not only that, it’s getting a red carpet premiere in Leicester Square and you can watch it in cinemas around the world. To say we’re all ready for The Doctor’s return is an understatement.
Some of you, however, may not be as well acquainted with the glory that is Peter Capaldi, so allow me to point you to some shows, or at least episodes, that you should watch to gear up for Deep Breath.
