One of the best series currently on television is the reboot of Britain’s Doctor Who. The namesake character, The Doctor, has been played by eleven actors over the show’s fifty year history. This week the 12th Doctor was revealed with great fanfare to be Peter Capaldi. Capaldi is a fantastic choice, as he’s one of the UK’s more celebrated actors (not to mention an Academy Award-winning director). I look forward to the 12th Doctor’s tenure; the TARDIS is in safe hands.
In other news New York Times Magazine did a terrific spread on the King family writing dynasty. Stephen King is the most well known, obviously, but his wife is also an accomplished novelist, as are both his sons and a daughter-in-law. Read all about it here.
