Saturday, August 23rd marked the 2014 series premiere of Doctor Who. Matt Smith has taken his farewell, and Peter Capaldi has come in as strong as ever. As the 12th Doctor, Capaldi sure has a lot of greatness to live up to, though he hasn’t disappointed yet. The series premiere drew in over 7.3 million viewers worldwide. Though Capaldi is drastically older than former Doctor Who star, Matt Smith, at an already grey 55 years old, this no longer seems to be a major concern for fans. Viewers remain eager, this viewer included, to see what Capaldi will bring to this limitless character. The Doctor Who series eight airs Saturdays at 9/8 Central on BBC.
