Re: Now that we know the new Doctor...what´s going to change?

Changing his clothes is fine, and he would hardly be the first (Smith has worn a handful of jackets and at least as many shirts under them, Eccleston had different jumpers and pants, and Tennant had two suits and a few different shirts and ties under them.), but he should still have a signature look the same that all the Doctors have. A few variations on that look is always nice to mix it up, but if you let him change every episode the character looses a bit of the that unearthly icon status.

I assumed that his death was from from the intelligence messing with his past and that energy was there because Claire wasn't there to go into the stream and save him. Though I could be forgetting something important.
I'm not sure how Clara could be in his timestream and only see up to 11.

Well with all the timey-wimeyness, perhaps the future was in such flux that she doesn't remember anything she did see.

Re: Now that we know the new Doctor...what´s going to change?

Becuase when the Doctor died, he made sure that would be the limits of his marker, and that those who buried him would double check, and the TARDIS his tomb would triple check that the final couple lives are hidden in a black list secret subdirectory.

When his time finaly came, he knew what was going to happen, so there was no need to make it unduly difficult for Clara, because it wasn't.

She jumped into the Time Stream during the life of the 11th doctor so she's been there in his past but may not have seen the future. Except when breaking the first law of time, even the doctor doesn't know of his future selves.

Re: Now that we know the new Doctor...what´s going to change?

It wasn't the complete Time Stream, it was the Doctor's personal Time Stream... Otherwise it would have been a Rose going Dark Phoenix situation all over again.

And even then, she didn't wander through out his entire life, well she did, but Clara was following the great intelligence, and if the Great Intelligence did his job right... The Doctor died there at his grave when he was/is 11, so there was no 12 or 13 anymore until Clara fixed everything.

Okay... Here's a fucking novel idea... How about he's the Doctor who changes his clothes every day.
I like that idea. Maybe his clothes could change according to his mood? Everytime he steps out of the TARDIS, the weather and his mood gets analysed and nanogenes change his clothing accordingly...maybe even his hairstyle.

Yep. Around Smith, he tried to save everybody, and I can't even remember the last time anybody died since Smith got in. meanwhile, people died in most if not all of Ecclestons episodes.
This is just silly. Smith tried to save everybody - Solomon the Silurian Killer? Mr. Sweet and Mrs. Gilleyflower?

People don't die in Smith episodes? Just from last series I can name deaths off the top of my head in 10 of the 13 episodes.

Re: Now that we know the new Doctor...what´s going to change?

Is it me or are people pointing to Malcolm Tucker as evidence that Capaldi will be a darker, edgier Doctor, while forgetting that The Thick of It is a comedy?

He has an impressive range. I really have no idea how he's going to play it.

^True.

Like I say, people probably expected Eccleston to be darker than he ended up...

I still wouldn't mind seeing an unrated segment on the DVD / Blu-Ray where The Doctor curses a blue streak for a minute after regenerating.

Re: Now that we know the new Doctor...what´s going to change?

I'd like Capaldi in a big long dark coat! A long gothic one. Maybe with aturned up collar. You know, a bit like something Dracula would wear. For the rest of the costume, I'd lke it to resemble McGann, the Shalka Doctor, and the Hurt doctor. I cooked this up a while back, but in hindsight, I'd prefer him with silver buttons instead and I wish I did the collar better. And maybe give him boots instead of shoes. Black versions of the boots Tom Baker wore in his last series.

And maybe a cute suede handbag.
