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..?

You didn't like the Bernard Cribbens bits?

I wondered if he'd keep the accent, I have a sneaking suspicion he will. Wardrobe wise at the moment I haven't a clue. I nailed Smith's absent minded professor look in advance, but with Capaldi I'm not sure. Doubt we'll see a frock coat or a trench coat, somehow I can't see him wearing one of those. I also think they'll shy away from anything that looks too much like a modern day suit in case he just looks like Malcom Tucker!

I think something quite old fashioned, yet fairly simple...but who knows, I get the impression Pertwee might be his Doctor, so it could be frills and velvet.

Lol. Yeah Cribbins not included in the mini rant.

I had the same discussion with a friend about how he would possibly approach the role. We oddly both said a mixture of Tom and Jon but just a little, not ott homage.

He has the almost ruggedly elegant look of Pertwee too.

And yeah, a suit would just make Tucker fans expect "Suck my four sweaty timelord balls you fat fuck." Or "Exterminate me with your egg fucking whisk you tin can c*nt."

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

Bit late to this (been on hoilday) but I think its a very bold and exciting choice. I love him on "Thick of It" and I do wonder how he will take on Who + I wonder if Moffat faced any pressure from BBC to cast young again or was he given free reign.

Are we sure Peter Capaldi isn't just Eric Idle having a go?

I would. I doubt I would watch Eric Idle in Doctor Who. He is my least favorite Python -- and I will leave it at that because I'm being polite.

Fair enough. I've always loved Eric Idle (although he's not my favorite or even my second favorite Python) but I guess he's not everyone.

He created the Rutles. That's good enough for me.

The cover for the next Doctor Who Magazine is out. That's not likely to be his costume, but he certainly has an interesting look.

Co-created, with Neil Innes. Idle had the idea, Innes wrote the music and made it work.

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

I'm happy with the idea of an older Doctor. I'd been hoping for an older Doctor for a while. (My previous short list included Bill Nighy and John Hurt, so sometimes the show listens to me.) Capaldi isn't my 100% ideal choice because I was kinda hoping for a woman. And I still haven't completely come to terms with Smith leaving. But I'm very excited about seeing what's next for the show.

I suppose I would be more ambivalent if Moffat were leaving too. But Moffat is staying on, and while I don't agree with absolutely everything he's done with the show, I think he's done a very good job. I've found that he & I tend to see things in a similar way. My conception of who the Doctor is is much closer to Moffat's interpretation than to RTD's interpretation. (We also have very similar views on Sherlock Holmes, to such an extent that Sherlock has pretty much negated any dreams I ever had about making my own "definitive" Sherlock Holmes movie.)

The fact that he's a lifelong fan of the show, a real fan and not a "celeb fan" who likes it because it's popular, makes me very, very happy.
But is he a super fan like David Tennant? (I mean, there are moments in Tennant's video diaries where he's making casual references to "Kinda." You can't get much more hardcore than that.)

Idle wrote "All You Need Is Cash" aka the Rutles TV Special. No it wouldn't have worked as well without Innes' music, but it's still pretty funny. The Punk Floyd scene always makes me laugh. As does "Shocked and stunned".
