So, the series will probably be addressing the approaching final incarnation of the Doctor then? Has there been any information on this?

I think he's a great choice and I'm borderline giddy about it.

He's an excellent choice and should be a good Doctor.

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

I only know his appearances in Torchwood and Fires of Pompeii (And I don't remember much about FoP), but, it's funny seeing people say he reminds them of previous Doctors (I think he's been compared to most of them already).

To me, he actually reminds me of the Simon Bakerish looking "12 Doctors Mashup" a poster posted here.

Looks alone, he looks the part and the emotion he drew upon in Torchwood could be used very effectively for the Doctor and it's nice to see an older Doctor for a change.

Just looked up Capaldi's IMDB page and he was John Frobisher on Torchwood: Children of Earth. I remember that role, and how interesting and good it was. Now I'm even more excited he has been cast as the new Doctor.
I thought he was fantastic in COE which honestly is the only thing I know him from. I wonder how soon Craig Ferguson will have him on the show

As he's been in both Doctor Who and Torchwood before, I'm optimistic that he's going to be a good fit for the role.

So yeah, I do like the idea of him as a The Doctor.

Boo-urns.

I'm not wild about this choice. I didn't think he was particularly amazing in CoE and I was looking forward to a Doctor of color, or even (gasp) a woman. But hey, an old white dude is good too, I guess.

I think he's a great choice. I'm glad they went with an older actor.

I can't wait to see where they take this Doctor and what he'll be like.

Good choice.
As to the Junkyard, whenever he is created, all there has to be is a scene where he emerges and the Doctor lets me escape. He know what will happen and he (the Scrapyard) will be defeated. Simple.

Interestingly enough his having been on both Doctor Who and Torchwood previously is the one thing that makes me less than thrilled with his being chosen. As I said on FB when I posted I'm probably the only person who thinks like this, but I got spoiled by Homicide and The Wire where actors don't constantly get recast as different characters only to end up eventually playing a lead role unlike what is so common for much of American and British television. I'm fine with the new Doctor being a known person in general, but would have preferred that the role be his first time appearing in the series.

However it is a very minor grumble and over all I am certainly looking forward to what will be happening next.

Also will be interested to see if I'm right and they chuck the whole only 13 bit into the rubbish bin.

Voted yes. Capaldi is an excellent choice and I look forward to his take on the Doctor. For proof on his acting range, just take a look at his characters from Fires of Pompeii and Children of Earth. They're complete opposites, and I had trouble believing at first it was the same guy playing both roles. If any can find the right balance between manic goofiness and grim seriousness that's always associated with the Doctor, I'm sure it's him.

You really can't tell what kind of Doctor he will be, just by his appearance alone. I have not seem him in anything yet, but since I am optimistic fellow, I voted yes .

count me as another fan who's glad to see an older doctor, the first one in a long time.

not as bold a choice as a woman or Black guy, but bold in its own way.

Did you see the fourth season, Fires of Pompeii? He was the father of the house and the guy who bought the Tardis, Caecilius. I love his ability to get into a role so completely. I am looking forward to his Doctor. I haven't seen World War Z, but amusingly he seems to have played a WHO Doctor.
