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

Far too similar to Smith IMO, and you're assuming he'd even want the job.
Yeah, and it's about time they get out of the "young" mold.

Though, already some of my female friends are lamenting the loss of "hottie" Matt Smith replaced by "old guy" Capaldi.

How glib. **sigh**
Unfortunately (Or fortunately, depending on your point of view I suppose), you're going to get that part of the fanbase. In fact, watching the special they even brought it up as one of the commentators said (I think it was) Partwee was the most attractive Doctor. You do lose some of the sex appeal for the new choice, but hopefully you're gaining a new fresh direction for the show, maybe even a darker direction.
