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

He was great in Torchwood: Children of Earth and I eager to see how the show handles an older Doctor again. I'm also curious as to how he and Clara will get along.

i'm surprised, but pleased they went with someone older than Smith. i hope Capaldi won't be as wacky and silly as Smith has been at times.

Would be brilliant if it was a swerve to cover the real choice. Has anything like the ever occurred?

Don't remember seeing the guy before, not quite sure what to make of it. Hopefully he'll be able to handle the aerobic strain many insist required a young man to be the Doctor in nuWho.

I am amazed how many people are saying they've never seen him before... Forget two appearances in Who andTorchwood, he's gone head to head with Tony Soprano!

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

Potential final incarnation. There is enough wiggle room using known information to say that a Time Lord can have more than 13 lives.

If DW is still popualr and pulling in enough ratings do we really think the Beeb will stop making it?

I remember when Colin Baker was the Doctor, when I first started watching the series. I figured I would be REALLY old when the Doctor reached his final incarnation. I was right!

A part of me thinks the show should end with the beginning of the regeneration sequence of the 13th Doctor.

Stan died in American dad when the world ended 3 or four years ago.

He went to hell.

Escaped, then after he clawed his way up to heaven, it turned out to be life with his family on Earth preapocalypse.

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

I'm absolutely thrilled by the choice. He's excellent in "Children of Earth" and "The Fires of Pompeii" and I'm excited by the prospect of an older actor playing The Doctor. When he was first rumored, I thought he would be a great pick but I never thought it would actually true. For once, a Doctor Who rumor came true!

It struck me that Capaldi should mix the acting chops of Eccleston with the fanboyish glee of Tennant...that could be a hell of a combination.
Interesting observation and I think you're right. I'm looking forward to his performance even more.

I think it's a good choice. I don't know Peter Capaldi's work too well so of course i'm apprehensive while I wait but it's interesting to see an older Doctor again.
I do agree with some saying you'll lose some of the fangirls by casting an older actor. Smith was hip and cool not just as the Doctor but in real life too. But Peter is gonna bring a maturity to the series much like Patrick Stewart did to the next generation.

Great actor (and director).

Might even tempt me to watch DW again.
