In a Surprise Choice, BBC Announces the 12th Doctor Who Will Be Bob Filner

No one saw that coming.  Doctor Who insiders call the choice “provocative,” but note that the show has “essentially done the same thing for forty years and so it would be good to express some new themes, like molesting strangers. Like, first episode, The Doctor encounters a Dalek, and immediately begins asking it ‘So how you doin’?’ then maybe grabs it on the keister.”

No but actually it’s an actor named Peter Capaldi, best known for his work on the comedic “In the Thick of It” as the profanity machine-gun Malcolm Tucker.  

The Right Scoop has cut video of the announcement and Capaldi’s first interview about his new job — saving the Galaxy.
