It seems like just yesterday that a fresh faced youngster by the name of Matt Smith stepped into David Tennant's shoes and took over the Tardis, but now, almost 4 years later, it's time for him to regenerate, and we've finally been told who will be stepping into his shoes.

There was quite the bit of build up to the big reveal, with just about everyone from Dame Helen Mirren to Benedict Cumberbatch being touted as possible replacements, so we can't imagine what it was like for Steven Moffat and co to actually find their leading lad or lady. Speaking of, would you like to actually know who it is?

Well, as announced on BBC One this evening, we can finally reveal that the 12th Doctor will be played by none other than...

Well, it's Peter Capaldi. Not David Tennant. Obviously. So it looks as though The Thick Of It's Malcolm Tucker will be getting a whole new lease of life... He'll always be Sid's dad from Skins to me.

Well, are we happy?
