Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary is a big event, and it extends to more than just the TV end of the Doctor Who universe. Earlier this year, the BBC announced it was enlisting children’s authors to produce eleven short stories – one for each of the eleven Doctors – that would be released in ebook form as another way to mark the big 5-0. So far, the authors have included Eoin Colfer, Marcus Sedgwick, and Malorie Blackman, among others. The BBC has revealed that Neil Gaiman will be the icing on the cake with his Eleventh Doctor story, Nothing O’Clock.

While we enjoyed what the internet had to say about John Watson’s new mustache, we knew there’d be considerably more reaction to Doctor Who’s newest cast member. So here, in honor of Capaldi being the twelfth, are 12 things the internet did after the announcement.
