Apparently Capaldi's Doctor is fairly energetic, so I don't think you'll be seeing much difference in the exuberance department.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

I think I read somewhere that Capaldi starts out acting much like Smith's Doctor as he's still adjusting to his new body, but gradually becomes a lot more serious in his own series.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

I am really going to miss Matt Smith.

He was excelent in the part, even though I did not like a lot of the material he was given. Even this, as a finale, has me cringing. Haven't we seen this before WITH Matt Smith's Doctor? It's like the same damn story. "I'm gonna die! The army people with no motivation of any substance are coming for me! All my enemies! Also there's some aspect of this being a child's fantasy or storybook thing!" Ugh. I wish we could go out on a really, really good story and not have the fact the Doctor is regenerating BE the story.

"Caves of Androzani" and "Parting of the Ways", where ARE you? Le sigh.

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

With Moffat recently pulling out all these little surprises

-Jenna in "Asylum of the Dalek"
-Capaldi in "Day of the doctor"
-John Hurt in "The Name of the doctor"
-Tom Baker in "The Name of the Doctor"

It would not surprise me if Capaldi does appear halfway into the special

Come to think about it, a regeneration at the end seems cliched.

To have it happen 15 minutes in would be something unexpected.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

^ Yeah I was thinking the same thing, that Moffat might actually have Capaldi appear earlier and play a bigger role in the episode. Especially given that it's going to be quite a long wait until we see Capaldi again in his series.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

Capaldi appearing halfway through the special and saving the day is an excellent way to undercut Matt's final episode and completely take away from our last few moments with the 11th Doctor by putting all the spotlight and fanfare on the 12th.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

I doubt Capaldi will appear halfway through the special. Indeed, cliched as it may be, the regeneration happening at the end does serve its purpose as the catalyst of drama, by allowing the rest of the story be the fitting end for the given outgoing Doctor.

Time and the Rani feels far more like a post-regeneration story for Seven than a final story for Six. Indeed, the pre-titles regeneration is reminiscent of the pre-title regeneration in Catrovalva. That being said, the TV Movie actually is the exception to the rule, but I doubt they'd ever repeat that for all intents and purposes.

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.
Nooo! Now you’ve cursed him!
Getting a new Doctor is an exciting time, but whilst I don’t feel we quite got long enough to know Eccleston in the role enough for it to be a major wrench, and whilst—must as I liked him—I was ready for Tennant to go, Smith has been, by far, my favourite Doctor since Davison, so I am gonna miss him.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

I get the feeling that the Christmas special is going to be 1 part of a 2 parter that'll resolve in the first episode of season 8. I don't know what it is particularly, but it feels like a combination of things. The trailer just feels very, "Stolen Earthy" to me, if you get what I mean.

I wouldn't be surprised if the special ends with 11 starting to regenerate and then season 8 ep 1 resolves the story.

The doctor's "permadeath" feels like it should be a bigger narrative event then just a one 90 minute episode.

I think it will be explored throughout the entire next season.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

I liked Tennant, but didn't love him. Smith has pretty much become my Doctor now, a slot previously held by Davison. So yeah, I'm definitely going to miss him.

Re: Time Of The Doctor Trailer!

it would be like Moffat to start the episode with Capaldi knocking on Clara's door and saying "I'm the Doctor, come on, we've got stuff to sort out..."

Which wouldn't fit with the leaked synopsis, but it's the *sort* of thing he'd do...
