Re: Moffat Talks 13th, sorry, 12th Doctor

Sounds like he's going for the Sixth Doctor Take II. Well it worked out so well last time...
The Sixth Doctor was initially erratic and volatile as a result of an unstable regeneration. Moffat's description, however, sounds more like a resurrection of the Doctor as the Oncoming Storm, or at least someone who isn't going to take any crap from an oversized pepper pot.

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 dunno--I think each of the Doctors are multi-dimensional and not just one particular attitude all the time. I think it's still possible for the 12th Doctor to be kind and even comical at times, yet also someone who doesn't suffer fools gladly.
