The Doctors

I have yet to see a full episode of Doctor Who, “the longest-running science fiction television show in the world” but it was apparently really big news that Peter Capaldi is set to be the next regeneration of the character.

Counting specials and the one television movie, it’s been 800 episodes. Maybe there’s something to this phone booth guy.
