BBC reveals new Doctor Who star is Peter Capaldi

Taking the lead in the show's Noughties revival, Christopher Eccleston became the programme's first northern doctor. Acting alongside Billie Piper, Christopher stuck out the role for a year. "I thought 'If I stay in this job, I'm going to have to blind myself to certain things that I thought were wrong," said the star. "My role kind of broke the mould and it helped to reinvent it. I'm very proud of it"
