A part of me thinks the show should end with the beginning of the regeneration sequence of the 13th Doctor.
I think he should be a paradox -- a closed time-like loop -- with the last Doctor becoming either the Other or the first doctor, depending on whether the Cartmel Masterplan is adhered to. There's scope for telling stories outside the usual linearisation of his time stream as well.

Hard to adhere to something that didn't actually exist.

So Andrew Cartmel has been written out of history -- it's started already...

He had a direction and a vague idea of where he wanted to go - something that was picked up in the books - over time, fans have morphed this in their minds into a highly detailed plan for the TV show - but it never existed.

Even leaving that aside that a showrunner in 2014 should be beholden to someone's unused undeveloped ideas from almost 30 years ago is just silly.

Like many other people I think the decision is great. I look forward to seeing what Peter is like as the Doctor.

Not sure what the OP was expecting but I'd say the result was emphatic.

Yes, it was just my fanwankery. I didn't expect anyone to take it seriously.

I wonder if Armando Iannucci is interested in doing a script.

Given Capaldi himself has written scripts I wonder if we'd get the first ever Doctor written scirpt (as far as I know)

Pertwee wrote one - or atl least an outline - along with his friend Reed de Rouen (who'd been in The Gunfighters), but it wasn't used, though it was official enough for de Rouen's name to turn up in BBC commissioning records - probably only for long enough to let Pertwee think it had a serious consideration though.
From the published plot synopses, it's best described as a fusion of The Underwater Menace and The Time Monster. Feel free to shudder.

I loved the idea when I first read the rumor, but had suspected they wouldn't want to deviate from the 'fresh, young look' mentality. The fact they've gone in this direction is fantastic. Massive thumbs up.

Re: Do you like the idea of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?

I watched the reveal live. i was excited until they padded it all out with interviews and crap, Davison excluded, but i got to a point where i felt as though i should phone in and donate to a cause, it was annoying. Then we got barely any time with Capaldi. Bloody beeb.

I am happy with the casting. I like the odea of going older, but, given his work on stage and tv like The Thick of It, he has this energy about him, body language and the look in his eyes. I am happy.

And i am still trying to get that Eastenders vs. The Volcano episode he was in, The Fires of Pompei, out of my head, but after The Thick of It, that has gone.

He has a pressence that makes you focus on him, and his voice is just amazing.

Im wondering if they will dumb down the accent a little like Tennnant, interesting.



So, wardrobe..?

My favourite part is says "run you clever boy", and Capaldi says "ah fuck off!".
