Re: Never Can Say Goodbye; No, no, no, no... (spoiler)
Why Capaldi? Is there anything in particular that makes you feel that way, Stig?
Well, in the two roles that I've seen him in (Torchwood and Fires of Pompeii) I never got that sense that he was a performer who could pull off The Doctor. I'll be happy to be proved wrong but I am not impressed so far. I had a very good impression of Matt Smith from the start and felt that he nailed the post-regeneration scene marvelously. Capaldi, not so much.
Some say that he was the first choice to play the new Doctor but turned it down when he couldn't put racing stripes on the TARDIS.
All we know is, he's called The Stig.
