    I just realised, the last time River saw the Doctor (before 10) was when he was older. We get another emotional farewell, I hope that's not the xmas special.

    I'm definitely looking forward to the brooding Doctor that Peter Capaldi will probably bring. Eleven had his moments of darkness but they were very rare; I expect Twelve to be more menacing by nature.

    This could potentially be Twelve and he looks pretty badass in this one pic alone.

    Peter Capaldi. He's perfect.Glorious actor, glorious man. Sheer perfection. Roll on 12 :love:

    It's too bad he won't be able to level his signature tirade of abuse.I would of loved a raj swear-y doctor but, yaknow, kids are a thing :rolleyes:

    I can't wait to see what his outfit looks like, in fact I want to see a design right now! Personally, I think he should roll with a dark, mysterious look, I love a good dark-side to the Doctor).

    I love it. Dammit I want to see his real outfit right now. I'd love 12 to be quite a broody, menacing, dark Doctor :eek:

    I'm sceptical, I really am. I was sceptical when I heard Peter Capaldi's name for the first time, because of his age mostly, and after seeing his pretty dull interview, I'm even more so. There's such a huge difference between him and Matt Smith and whilst difference is good, the 12th has to have some personality and Peter Capaldi seems to have none. He has a lot to live up to.

    But I was dubious about Matt Smith when he was cast, so I'll give this guy a chance. I just hope 2014 isn't when I finally give up on Doctor Who.

    That guy who was giving the interview with Bernard Cribbins (I forget his name), said Peter Ecclestone. I bet he knew - who else would he get mixed up with?!
    Rufus Hound (the guy with Cribbins) has written a blog about how ashamed he is as a fan after last night's shambles:
    http://rufushound.wordpress.com/2013...f-in-the-head/
    He explains that he's close to Christopher Eccleston's cousin, who is Peter Eccleston..

    Wait, he wasn't even revealed in an episode? Kinda weird and anti-climactic.

    I don't see why some people are a bit dubious about Peter being the Doctor because of his age - he's only in his 50s. Besides, he has a hot head teacher look going on - maybe this is a move into the Doctor become the darker Doctor which he has been hinted to become.

    Great choice. Will revitalise the series and make it more about sci fi and frights than run-of-the-mill drama and fangirls. Good to see the BBC making some tough but sensible choices!

    I liked Matt Smith, but with him it is very hard to take the show seriously, and I think Capaldi will fix that :awesome:

    Steven Moffat will also be leaving when Matt Smith does, right? Otherwise he may ruin another incarnation of the Doctor...

    Moffat has said he will be back for series 8. Also he also said he is past the halfway mark of his reign. I think he might do one or two more series. He will probably leave when Clara does.

    I agree with you in the fact that I am not a massive fan of his take on the doctor, but he has pulled off some decent episodes. I'm hoping he uses the christmas special to tie up all his plot holes with eleven. Hopefully he can pull of an intro of eleventh hour standards for 12 then spend that series building up 12 then leaving.

    Um. That may be true for some people but it's certainly not true across the board. There are loads of Scottish accents on TV and plenty of us (myself include) find the Scottish accent pleasant to listen to.
    Not as many as there should be though, and its true in general but goes back generations.

    People feel more comfortable hearing an English accent, not just on tv though as I worked in a SCOTTISH call centre and they tried hiring the ones that sounded more English

    It is understandable though as people have comfort zones

    Lol, that picture is superb.

    One of my top Malcolm Tucker moments: "Don't you ever, ever call me a bully! I am so much worse than that."
