The YFG has been interested to see who the new Doctor is tonight, and so we were all watching tv tonight at 7pm for the big reveal programme.
I had seen this photograph on a website, talking about bookies no longer accepting bets on this chap being the new Dr Who, but I took one glance at him, decided I hadn't a clue who he was, and moved on.

Boy, was I surprised tonight to see this chap walk out onto the stage - Peter Capaldi, a Scottish actor who is 58 years old. The first photo is unrecognisable to me as the same person, but of course I knew him when I saw him clean shaven! Funny the difference that wisp of a beard could make...

It will definitely be interesting to see how the story pans out with a slightly older actor - Matt Smith was only 26 when he took on the role - but I think that the YFG will keep me up to date when the take-over happens!
