Re: Do you like the idea of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?

It's very hard to say without knowing how he'll be written, but there is cause for optimism. At the very least, having a man in his mid-50s should mean we won't have any hyperactive hopping about and acting the loopy tit that's characterised the past two. It's no guarantee, but having a man closer to his pension than his 30s should mean he'll be more in keeping with the gentlemanly nature of the proper Doctors (that is to say, the first 8), rather than some prick from a trendy wine bar or an ex-miner binman yob.
I liked the Kinetic energy 10 and 11 had. And not all original 8 doctors were "proper" and gentlemanly like, Tom Baker (arguably the doctor who's had the most impact and probably one of the most popular doctors) was more in line with 10 & 11 then the more posh doctors. Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy weren't very gentleman like either.
McCoy was the biggest deviation from the Edwardian gentleman character of the Doctor and I'll concede Tom Baker was a bit different too, but they still have much, much more in common with the rest of the classic Doctors than with Shagger and Smudger. Not sure how Colin's Doctor wasn't a gentleman. He had a pocket watch and everything.
