And the sonic screwdriver goes to Peter Capaldi.

The Scottish actor was named the new star of the British sci-fi Doctor Who on Sunday during a live broadcast on BBC America. He will replace the departing Matt Smith, whose time in the time-traveling police box the TARDIS ends later this year.

"It’s so wonderful not to keep this secret any longer," said Capaldi, 55 and a lifelong fan of the show. "I haven’t played Doctor Who since I was 9 on the playground."

What about the kids?

As Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice and husband Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice deal with a 39-count fraud indictment, concern now turns to the four innocent victims in the case.

"She may need some help raising those children," Real Housewives of Miami’s Lea Black tells People.com.

Black — who admits Teresa "drove me nuts … and I was never rooting for her on the show" — nonetheless says her "heart breaks" for the family.

    Bachelorette Andi Dorfman: I was attracted to Josh Murray from the beginning

    Bachelorette (no more) Andi Dorfman stopped by Good Morning America on Tuesday to show off her ABC swag (aka engagement ring) from former pro baseball player Josh Murray. The 27-year-old lawyer and her 29-year-old grinning fiance held hands and looked pretty happy. “I definitely knew there was that chemistry and attraction with him,” Dorfman said of their first meeting. “I'm definitely an overthinker, though, so it took me till the very end.” Plus she had to break up with 24 guys first. No wedding date has been set yet; the couple need to do more publicity first.
