Well, for those of you who aren’t familar with the Scottish-born actor, he’s probably most well known for playing crude, rude and expletive-loving Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It but he’s also starred in The Hour, Skins, The Vicar of Dibley, and Doctor Who spin off Torchwood!

He’s even appeared in Doctor Who itself while David Tennant held the keys to the Tardis.

Here are a few of Capaldi’s best TV moments to date…
