I want something longer than 10 seconds though. Two minutes (or one) with him post-regeneration would be enough. Otherwise it's a looooooooooooong wait before we see Capaldi properly.

I'd like to see he and Clara interact a bit too.
I don't disagree. It'll be about eight months until we see Capaldi in action.

Yes, I know there are people who believe there's going to be an Easter special, but I really don't see the logic for that from the BBC's point of view.

Re: "The Time of the Doctor" Images, Clips, Spoilers & Speculation

If it is about 15 seconds of him hopping around and shouting about how things are different before the credits, then I hope at least they'll give us a minisode with a few minutes of him and Clara getting used to each other (like Children in Need 2005 with Rose and Ten). The thought of 8 months before we see him again is....ugh.

Moffat has called this a "traditional regeneration" so that likely means Capaldi will just be a cameo in the episode's closing scene. About the only difference from other Doctors I'm expecting is that we'll get a "Introducing Peter Capaldi as the Doctor" card flash up, like they did with John Hurt.

Since I've hated the "1980's Music Video Set" console room since its debut last Christmas, I certainly hope so, but I doubt it. I think we can safely bet that Capaldi will get a new intro, though.

New intro. New screw driver. New costume. New hero theme. Same TARDIS.

Considering all the complaints we've gotten about the show struggling with a shrinking budget, building yet another new console room (which I love btw) would be a pretty stupid thing to do.

Re: "The Time of the Doctor" Images, Clips, Spoilers & Speculation

I also like the current console room -- to a point. It's certainly an improvement over the previous one, but one thing that struck me in that "Day of the Doctor" scene where we flashed quickly from Ten's to WarDoc's to Eleven's set was how cold and stark Eleven's console room is. This is due in part to the metallic feel of the whole thing. There's just not much warmth to it, I find.

One change that I would like to see is the exterior of the TARDIS. I never really warmed to it, apart from the return of the St. John Ambulance badge. It's just too clean and, frankly, too blue. I don't like the windows. I don't like how they shine so brightly white sometimes, especially when there's no bright light inside to give that effect. And I don't like that they've made the notice board on the left door a backlit thing now too. That scene at the end of DotD when all three TARDISes were parked next to each other made me miss Ten's all the more.

Agreed.

A change I could see them doing is making it brighter in(Runaway Bride) since they moved locations.

The set's barely a year old. They need to break it in.

Meanwhile, I loved the old Amy & Rory console room.

And 11 had the nerve to describe 10's room as his "grunge phase." The current is more bleak and depressing than that room ever was.

They should just take the current set and repaint it in pearlescent whites and silvers and such. Cheer it up a bit and give it even more of a retro-cool look.

Agreed. The basic design I think is pretty damn cool. It's just the fact the room is so damn dark and... blue.

It was fitting for where the Doctor was at in The Snowmen, but by this point it just doesn't seem to fit him at all. And I would imagine Moffat would want to make the room look a bit more warm and inviting for Capaldi's first series as well.
