Maybe I'm judging too harshly, but this episode feels really depressing (based on the trailer) for Christmas night. Might be a good one to record and watch the next day. I hope it's not as depressing as the trailer showed.
I can't watch the Trailer until this evening when I get home.

It's funny to hear this comment though, since, once of the biggest complaints about the Christmas Specials is that they are "too happy" and "always having Feel Good Endings" (IE: The Widow, The Doctor and The TARDIS having the husband being saved in the end)

Excited but episode kinda looks contained. I just imagined something bigger.

I like that they have feel good endings. It's a Christmas Special afterall.

Oh, I absolutely agree, and that's been my reply several times when someone has complained about a "trite" "Feel Good Ending" for a Christmas Special

Going to really miss Matt Smith, but also really excited to see Peter Capaldi in the role. Conflicting feelings, arghhh.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

Well, I for one will be glad to see Matt go. I never warmed to him as a Time Lord. I think Capaldi's gonna be great in the role and bring some new blood to what's become fairly stale story telling. I only hope Moffat recognises that.

"The Doctor is regenerating"

Hell, normally it's a quiet family affair with just companions (or even alone) and usually after the adventure is over.

Maybe Matt won't "save the day" this time, and Capaldi will do it.

It's always exciting to get a new Doctor though.
That is true.

And this is the first time since Christopher Eccleston was cast that I've known anything about the new actor to play the Doctor and that didn't really count since we knew nothing about what the revived show would be like. Matt and David were great but at the time I knew little about them or whether they were going to be good.

Whereas I know Capaldi is a great actor and, at the risk of tempting fate, is bound to be a great Doctor.
Completely agreed. Before I delved into DW, all I knew about it was that, the Doctor somehow changed his appearence, he was old and young, and Tom Baker. Seriously, huge scarf, curly hair - Doctor Who's image more than anything.

Beyond that, I'd known about the revival in '05 but didn''t check it until, well, fairly recently. But with all the talk about the anniversary this year, I thought I'd give it a try and start with '05, as many suggested that I do. And I did. And never looked back since. But, I digress.

I've known Christopher Eccleston as an actor when I first saw him in Jude, that Kate Winslet film he did back in 1996, and I thought he was absolutely, er, fantastic! I've followed him periodically in shows and such, especially Cracker, and I guess he kinda sealed the deal for me as far as DW is concerned. Beyond him, I'd no idea who the rest of the actors were, except maybe Tom Baker because his image was synonymous with OldWho. Peter Capaldi is thus the second actor that I've known outside of DW before he became the Doctor.

Rambling out.

Back in the '80s, I had a friend who was into a lot of SF and comics but not a Who viewer. I often talked to him about the show, and explained it to him, but when he first saw the cover of a book that showed the faces of all six or seven Doctors, he was surprised at how different they all looked. He'd known that the role had been recast multiple times, but he'd assumed they cast similar-looking actors.

I'm looking forward to it, but it would be nice if he totally wasn't expecting the Regeneration and it came as something of a shock. Eg He trips over something in the TARDIS, hits his head and "oh, bother".

I didn't really warm to Smith that much either. At least no where near as much as I did Tennant and Eccleston. He wasn't a bad doctor, but he wasn't overly good either. It's only until about the second half of series 7 I actually even begun to warm to his doctor.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

Just my opinion here, I do want to defend Matt Smith a bit, who has become my Doctor. I just love how weird, and eccentric his Doctor is, reminding us he is an extra terrestrial. While I like Tennant, he always seemed too human to me, and I didn't warm to him until series 3, I felt he was doing a bad imitation of Eccleston in series 2.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

Eccleston was my Doctor until Tennant came along. Tennant was my Doctor until Matt Smith came along. We'll just have to wait and see if Capaldi replaces Matt Smith as my Doctor this time around.
