Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I feel confident Capaldi will put in the "standard" three years. I'm certainly not opposed to him staying longer, though I'm thinking it'll be a good long while before Tom Baker's record is broken, or even matched.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I can't see it ever happening, and frankly I'm not sure I'd want to. I think Tom was in the role too long. It would be nice to see an actor in the role for 4/5 years maybe.

A sentiment Tom also shared.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Ironically then, Tom Baker was NOT a fan coming in to the show, and he stayed the longest. You can argue that the actors who were the biggest fans of the show were Tennant and Hartnell himself, and they only stayed "average" tenures, albeit for different reasons.

Personally, I would rather hope that Capaldi's status as a superfan would result in a BETTER tenure, over his having a LONGER one. A decade or more from now, I'd think any actor - and most fans - would rather remember an era of Doctor Who with words like "Capaldi's four years were the best in the history of the show", versus "Capaldi's eight years marked the longest continuous time an actor held the role".

Ditto. In fact, I'd rather have him be a one series wonder like Eccleston and have him be the best doctor in a long time than him last ages and be average or bellow average.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Looks like the eleventh doctor planted some seeds for the 12th doctor's costume

First he took off his bowtie then he wears a different waistcoat



Velvet






Lower waist coat






Different waist coat





And it looks like the 12th doctor and Clara got haircuts while the TARDIS was crashing

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I just had a thought. Moffat said that Capaldi mentioned clothes that Moffat had never heard of, and seeing he's Scottish plus it'd suit him, how about a "ghillie shirt"?

Just as long as he doesn't go with a full ghillie suit.

I think it would be tragic if we had another Colin baker situation with Capaldi. Or probably closer to the Hartnel situation where he gets fired. Whether it be because of unpopularity or more tragically, he gets too old or ill to play the doctor anymore. Might happen.
[/QUOTE]
The only thing that probably damaged Capaldi's health at all was his recreational drug use in the 70's and maybe drinking off and on, but a 55 year old these days is likely healthy as a horse. Patrick Stewart was in his 50's during the latter years of TNG and did fine, and that was probably on a more strenuous filming schedule than Doctor Who. If Ian McNiece is still living and able to film episodes of Doc Martin after all these years with as fat as he is, Capaldi getting too ill to be the Doctor seems a tall order. He'll be fine.
