He’s going to be an older, trickier and fiercer Doctor
Hmm, well, I can buy that Capaldi can do "fiercer," but when I watched the TV special that introduced him, I thought he'd be good as a more kindly, Troughtonesque Doctor. I guess not, though.

…”I think the fun story will be – and we have the opportunity here – is this is what regeneration can do to you. He can be very, very different.”
That I like. It was the norm with the Doctors in the original series -- each one was pretty much the complete opposite of his predecessor -- but the past three have been more subtle gradations, and I'm glad we'll finally be getting a major change.

“People really love Jenna, so we make the Doctor quite difficult…”
Now, that could be risky. If he does it in a Tom Bakerish way as he suggests, that could work, but as you suggest, Colin Baker's "difficult" Doctor comes to mind, and that was less successful.
