It's Peter Capaldi!  The article says he'll be the 12th Dr. Who.  I think he's a good choice.  Who's been your favorite Dr. Who so far?

I REALLY need to watch this stinking show! Not sure where to begin though. What do you recommend?

As far as the actor, I've seen it going both ways with the choice. Some people are loving it, some are hating it (most complaints I see are that he's older).

David Tennant (#10) is my favorite Doctor. I only started watching "Doctor Who" with the recent reboot, but I have been enjoying BBC's look at all the Doctors over the past year.

i think it's interesting that TPTB have gone back to an older actor to play the Doctor.

I could wish they had chosen a woman or person of color for the part &/ or a non- British actor. But I'm looking frorward to Capaldi. He was *outstanding* in Torchwood.

As for where to begin Erin, just start watching! I'd suggest with David Tennant, but you can begin anywhere!
