Re: Do you like the idea of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?
In any case, I hope we get a special minisode similar to the Children in Need 2005 one where we can at least have a couple of minutes with the 12th Doctor post-regeneration. I don't want to wait 4 more months after Christmas to see Capaldi's doctor and how he'll act in the role.
I suspect it'll be closer to 8 months before we see the 12th Doctor in action and the Children In Need specials are generally aired in Nov. before the Christmas special.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
