Peter Capaldi is very good. And I like his wit. No more waving the sonic screw driver like it’s a wand. Matt was good but got boring towards the end. Clara, although she is very talented, never seemed to fit into the role as companion. Something just did not work with her character. Will be forgotten very quickly. As for the next companion? How about an episode where the doctor saves a young girl’s life as she is kidnapped from a foster home about to be sold as a slave. Something shocking like that where the doctor becomes her only hope at rebuilding her life as she travels with him. Perhaps tracking down her parents, who were forced to give her up. And learning about universe on the way? Something shocking that will touch the heart of viewers everywhere…

Haven’t read all the comments, but has anyone mentioned that the Ponds *did not die* but were displaced back in time beyond the Doctor’s reach by the Weeping Angels? And that they actually ended up living out a very happy life together through most of the 20th century?

Okay, now that that’s out of my system — can I say I’m really, really surprised by this outright ageist discussion over Peter Capaldi being in his mid-fifties. Brad Pitt is 50-yrs-old-going-on-51 for Pete’s sake and I would wager no one’s calling him ‘old’. Just because you’re a person of a certain age doesn’t mean sex appeal goes out the window. Even though Capaldi is older than Smith, my goodness, he’s got something going on there with those blue, blue eyes. One of my problems with Matt Smith as the Doctor was that he exhibited not a smidgen of sex appeal (for my tastes – not saying he doesn’t turn on anybody else). Capaldi has a sneaky sex appeal — and wow, his Doctor costume is the ‘coolest’ I’ve seen since Nine walked out of the TARDIS. So, yes, this lady Whovian is quite happy with his casting as Twelve. Woot!

Capaldi has the sex appeal of a lamp. First of all, Brad Pitt may be 50 but he’s very good looking. Capaldi is not. Capaldi’s “blue, blue” eyes are always bloodshot. His complexion is ruddy. It makes me wonder if he drinks. But more than all of that, HE CANNOT ACT. He talks like he has marbles in his mouth. I offered to buy season eight episodes for my 9 year old niece. He watched 20 minutes of the first episode and lost interest. I didn’t make it that far. Dr. Who has gone from my favorite show to a non show for me. I’ll miss it.
