The Twelfth Doctor
Peter Capaldi played The Twelfth Doctor from 2014 to 2017 to perfection, as the curmudgeon, sardonic, occasionally evil-eyed Scotsman. His TARDIS interior was gorgeous and he sported some nice coats, often combined with a hoodie and badass boots. Not a huge fan of that sweater with holes in it, but hey-ho. Capaldi, a lifelong Whovian, was brilliant in the role, echoing much of a tone of William Hartnell’s first take on the Time Lord.
