Re: Do you like the idea of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?
As for his fandom, I dunno. I don't think Smith is any different a Doctor to Tennant because he didn't grow up a fan, if anything I think at times the role weighed heavier on Tennant than it has on Smith, sometimes he seemed to try too hard cos he didn't want to let people down.
Not that being a fan makes you more or less qualified for the role. But at least it means that he probably won't leave in a huff and break our hearts by never even coming back for the reunion special, like a certain 9th Doctor that we know. (Seriously, I get the sense from interviews I've seen lately that it takes every ounce of strength Eccleston has just to be polite and not strangle the next interviewer that asks him about Doctor Who.
