The actor, famous for his sweary role as political spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It, will play the 12th incarnation of the Doctor, replacing Matt Smith when he steps down from the role at the end of the year.

Smith’s final appearance, which will lead into Capaldi’s ‘regeneration’ as the new Doctor, will be shown this Christmas on BBC One in the UK.

Doctor Who is produced by BBC Cymru Wales.
