LONDON
The BBC says British actor Peter Capaldi is the next star of the long-running science fiction series “Doctor Who.”

The announcement was made during a live television broadcast on Sunday.

The 55-year-old is best known as venom-spitting spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in political comedy “The Thick of It.”

He is the 12th actor to play the Doctor, a galaxy-hopping Time Lord who travels in the Tardis, a time machine shaped like an old-fashioned British police telephone booth.

Its longevity is due partly to the flexibility of the premise. The Doctor can regenerate into new bodies, and can travel to any point in space or time.
