Have we got any Doctor Who fans here on Evil Beet? I used to be pretty into the show but could only survive about two seasons of Steven Moffat as showrunner before I had to check out for good from his bullshit.
Anyhow, Matt Smith has moved on and now we have a new Doctor in the form of Peter Capaldi. Since the show is coming back for its eighth season – or “series”, as we say here in the UK – next month, BBC have released a teaser trailer to get us all excited.
Will you be watching the next season of Doctor Who? Is Peter Capaldi going to be any good in the role? What’s going to happennnnn? You know, besides Daleks and Cybermen and the usual.

Matt Smith is appearing in Ryan Gosling‘s directorial debut How To Catch a Monster, so he’s had some up close and personal time with the cereal-refusing heartthrob and even Doctor Who isn’t immune to his charms. Or, you know, his sexy bod.
From Total Film magazine (via DS):
“I have admired his abdominals in Crazy Stupid Love. Yes, he’s a very handsome man, that’s for sure.”
Smith, who recently shaved his head for the movie, went on to speak of his delight to be working with Gosling.
He added: “He’s cool. He’s bright, you know. He’s got a really clear, really brilliant vision for his film. And I’m a huge fan of his work as an actor. I think he makes brilliant choices.”
This is a dream in slash fiction writer’s heaven. I’m sure there’s actually already stories out there about these two, actually, because you know the rule of the Internet: if you can imagine it, it exists. I found this out a few years ago when a really weird conversation led me to search for “Harry Potter and Fawkes fanfic” (Fawkes being Dumbledore’s phoenix) and yes, it exists. And it’s NC-17. Spare yourself.
Does anyone NOT like Ryan Gosling, though?
