Since we’ve nothing better to do between now and Sunday night, lets keep ourselves busy with more pointless speculation than you could shake a perigosto stick at by wondering if it really is Peter Capaldi who’s going to be revealed as The Twelfth Doctor at the weekend.
The rumours are that he’s The One and the bookies have stopped taking bets on him, and since there’s no such thing as a poor bookmaker, you can be sure that they genuinely suspect that those bets are being made by people with inside knowledge.
So let’s take a quick look at the possibility, shall we?
Even without the help of a quick mock-up like this I can certainly imagine Capaldi in the role and would be happy if he got it.
He would be the second actor to have appeared in the show as a different character before playing the Doctor, like Colin Baker before him…
And, like Tennant before him he is a genuine and huge Fan, unlike that MNG Eccles…
And he would have the distinction of having appeared in both Who and Torchwood…
[Speaking of which, why oh why has nobody yet done the obvious YouTube mash up of Malcolm Tucker telling the 456 to Fekk Off?]
So, since there’s nothing much else happening rumour-wise, let’s all go and rewatch both The Fires of Pompeii and The Thick of It and then wait and see if it really is him.
Malcolm Tucker in The Tardis? Works for me!
