Reaction began immediately on Twitter to the announcement that Peter Capaldi would be the 12th Doctor Who. It was the top trending topic.
I was hoping it would be a woman – I heard Helen Mirren said she would do it – but the choice they made seems to be a solid one.
I do love this tweet though – let Tatiana Maslany play all the characters on Doctor Who!
I want @tatianamaslany to play the new Doctor and the new Companion and the new Master…
