I am disappointed. He's white. He's male. I know him from his role in The Thick of It. One item in my hope list was fulfilled, he is older. While I find this slight bit of diversity to be refreshing, many others are appalled by the fact that the 12th Doctor will be older than Doctors past:
I knew there would be backlash and racism/sexism if the 12th Doctor were of color, or a woman, but I hadn't anticipated people being so upset about his age.
What do you think about the choice for the 12th Doctor?
