    Exactly. People thought Smith was too young when he started out, a year later he was our favourite Doctor! WHAT?! They think Smith was too young and Capaldi is too old! MAKE UP YOUR MINDS!

    I'd gripe about this but I'm too jaded about this regular cycle all fandoms goes through. Pokemon, MLP, DBZ, you name 'em, they've gone through this phase every time.

    Who the hell gives a crap about somebody's age?. Aren't you meant to be watching for a doctor who destory aliens and not for how sexy somebody is?

    I did some research and Peter Capaldi was not only in the Doctor Who episode "The Fires of Pompeii" (he played Lucius Caecilius Iucundus), but he also played John Frobisher in Torchwood: Children of Earth (Torchwood being a Doctor Who spinoff). So he is already familiar in the Doctor Who universe.

    I never would've expected it to be him, but I think Capaldi will do an excellent job. He's a brilliant actor, and I like the idea of having an older Doctor.

    If they insist on making romance a component, I'll bet anyone fifty dollars they'll bring back River. The age difference there is what, two years?
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.

    How to pick the next Doctor/companion/whatever: close eyes; point randomly at list of guest stars from previous episodes; watch the fandom burn.
    This really is nothing new for the show or for Time Lords in general (Romana, for instance). You're at least 34 years late to the punch.

    To the contrary, the folks at BBC have been saying that they often look for relatively unknown actors to play the part. Just as well, because I don't think I'd enjoy it as much.

    As long as the BBC are aware that he's relatively unknown, that's fine-- but his fans don't seem to realise that he's not that well-known.

    As I've said, I disapprove of the decision only because he's been treated, thus far, like a household name, and he seems to have an ego to match, when he is, in fact, a relative unknown. I'll reserve judgement on his capacity to play the Doctor, however, once I see him playing the Doctor.
    Yeah, I write weirdly dark stuff sometimes. Birdsong, I Can't See The Light and The Courteous Soldier, if you're interested.

    I mean, this thread wasn't around thirty-four years ago, nor was I alive to post in it, so yeah, I'm okay with being late. I just found it amusing that three of New-Who's companions/Doctors guest-starred in previous episodes. I didn't bother going back to Old Who because I felt my joke was done, but hey. XD

    I wonder if the Doctor will recognize his twelfth incarnation as that Pompeii guy. It'd be like:

    Doctor: "Huh? Why do I look so familiar?"

    Well, he noticed Gwen (Or whatever her name is, Jack's companion) looked a lot like the girl in um well I forgot what the episode was called (I am new to the show, sue me) but it's where they had those spirits taking over dead corpses but it didn't work as they burned too quickly, she sacrificed her life to get rid of them. (S4 I think).


    I am not sure what I think of this doctor, I actually don't mind if they are young but oh well, as long as he is a good doctor (I liked the 9th and he had to be closer to 40?), favorite would be the 10th doctor though, it's taking a little while to warm up to the 11th doctor (When I say I am new, I mean it's only been 1-2 months since I started watching the reruns of it on ABC, and just reached the 11th Doctor episodes a week or two ago), he felt more like a comedic relief for some reason, but I am sure the 12th will ber the same as the 11th, take a bit for me to warm up to them (I like the 10th doctor the most because well I got on the show first with him),.

    I love Capaldi in The Thick of It, I can't wait to see what he brings to The Doctor. And apparently he'll be keeping his Scottish accent, which is great.

    Yes, you were right. It was Gwen Cooper (played by Eve Myles in The Stolen Earth and Journey's End who also played Gwyneth in The Unquiet Dead which is the episode you were thinking of with the spirits which was actually in Series 1 with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor).

    I saw the episode in which Matt Smith regenerated into Peter Capaldi on ABC1 on Boxing Day (and I taped the repeat on ABC2 on Friday night as I was out). I think it will be a bit weird because of the big age gap between the Doctor and Clara, but I might watch the new episodes when it starts mid-2014.
