Awesome Footage of New ‘Doctor Who’, Peter Capaldi, Greeting Young Fans

12th Doctor
Just starting to go viral right now is this terrific handheld phone video of television’s newest Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi (PeekYou profile here), greeting young fans during a break from filming the program’s upcoming season (to begin airing this fall).

Capaldi is the 12th actor to star as the program’s title character, and the fourth since the show’s immensely popular revival (after a 16 year absence from regular broadcast) in 2005. Some young fans, unacquainted with the series’ unusual device of switching out the lead actor periodically, are approaching this casting with trepidation; taken with Capaldi’s predecessor, Matt Smith (PeekYou profile here), as they were. In this clip, Peter goes some way toward proving that he is indeed the best man for the job. We never had any doubt, however.
