So we might be getting a second Eccleston after all? YES!!!!!!! Plus I heard Colin Baker mentioned here too? Also very welcomed!

The latest word from Moffat about what Capaldi's Doctor will be like:

http://blogtorwho.blogspot.com/2014/...dder-less.html
"Now we're going to give her a Doctor who's not like that at all [The Eleventh Doctor], who's a much older, fiercer, madder, less reliable Doctor, who leads her a merry dance. And she's trying to keep him a secret and she's now working in a school..."

On The Twelfth Doctor's character, Moffat comments that he will be more akin to Tom Baker and Christophe Eccleston, being "mad and dangerous and difficult" and not a "quirky young man" like Matt Smith and David Tennant.
Sounds more like Colin Baker than Tom, from that description.
That's *exactly* what I've been worried about since when Moffat first started describing the new Doctor as "difficult" and being tough on Clara! The way Capaldi lurched at Clara at first made me think he was going to try to strangle her ala Six/Clara.

Pertwee was difficult and condescending in an entirely different way though. So perhaps more Pertwee? But, Pertwee wasn't difficult on his companions, more paternalistic.

Although the aspect of her working at the school keeping her weird, older Doctor a secret sounds somewhat akin to Susan and her unseen, crotchety Grandfather!

The thing is though, Capaldi is in infinitely better actor than Colin Baker. So I think he'd be able to carry off a rude and abrasive doctor and do it in such a way as not to alienate audiences. I can see where they were going with Six - I just don't think Colin was good enough to manage it.

^ Agreed. There is hope. And, agree that Colin wasn't a good enough actor to manage what was intended. But, it worries me still!

Moffat has been open about not enjoying Colin Baker's stuff (which being polite about baker) so I doubt he is drawing from that era...

I think it was probably more that Colin Baker was directed to be much more nasty and abrasive than he should have been.

I don't want another fucking Hartnel. I'd much rather have something akin to Colin Baker, I don't get all the hate for C.B.

Rude and ill-mannered can be incredibly entertaining if the right actor is doing it. Sounds like we might be getting some Doc Martin in our Dr. Who.

The actor, and the scripting. Sherlock Holmes easily comes off so in pursuit of his quarry. Give a reason for it that explains the rudeness for the audience and they can be entertained even when the character is an utter jerk.

Capaldi on set













Capaldi on mock horse likely for close-up shots

The 12th doctor is wearing victorian era nightwear.

He'll be wearing that for most of the episode and likely select his outfit at the end of it.

It's a costume, but just a story relevant one before he slips into his trademark Doctor costume.
