Peter Capaldi is the 12th actor (13th if you count John Hurt as the War Doctor in the recent 50th anniversary special) to take on the helm of the Doctor in the acclaimed British sci-fi series Doctor Who.
We're only 4 episodes into the newest season and it's already exciting thinking about all the possibilities that await us as we follow the Doctor in different adventures through time and space.
Most of the Doctor's escapades have started off innocently enough - like a spontaneous visit to Robin Hood in Medieval England - but have ended with a looming suspicion as we try to figure out what The Promise Land exactly is.
Despite all the questions we're dying to have answered, Capaldi's performances each week have offered a refreshing take on the 2,000+ year old Time Lord.
Here are 12 reasons why the 12th Doctor is easily becoming one of our favorites:
1. His physicality.
2. He speaks with his eyes.
3. His grumpiness.
4. His increasingly sarcastic humor.
5. His palpable chemistry with Clara.
6. His simplistic style.
7. His lovable awkwardness.
8. His bluntness.
9. His darker, more mysterious side.
10. His representation of the Doctor being more of a philosopher and a dreamer.
11. His ongoing tendency for troublemaking.
12. And obviously, his blatant Scottishness.
Here's to the rest of the season and what the 12th Doctor has in store for us!
