This is an interesting turn of events.
The Doctor is older than I am again. YAY!
In fact, this Doctor’s actor is as old as any Doctor has ever been at the start of his run.
Although due to medical advancements, (and partially by design) Peter Capalidi’s current fifty-five appears quite a bit younger than William Hartnell’s did in 1963, it is one heck of a jump up from Matt Smith.
With a new Doctor, I feel like I should say a few words about it.
