I think people are going to be dissapointed if they Capaldi's going to be all dark and serious
I've just seen a short interview of Capaldi. The guy is so sharp and energetic that it's very hard to believe that he's older than Hartnelle when he took on the role.
Hartnell was pretty spry even when he finished his tenure, if that recently discovered interview is anything to go by. The problem was his arteriosclerosis stopped his brain from getting sufficient blood and oxygen. He literally couldn't retain new information. A lifetime of drinking and smoking will do that to a man. The reason Capaldi is looking so good now is because he hasn't been destroying his body from the inside the way Hartnell did.
