Well I have to say I’m absolutely delighted and a little gobsmacked at the excellent casting of Peter Capaldi to be the 12th Doctor. He’s a fantastic actor and as much as I liked Matt Smith I was worried that the BBC would want the next Doctor to be even younger and might get some orange prick from Take That, Blue or Boyzone to get the young girlies wet.
We just need to stick Steven Moffatt back into a writing chair where he is excellent and either bring back Russell T Davies or find another executive producer. Because Moffatt’s tenure has been poor. So poor, as a lifelong fan I still haven’t seen all of the last series, mainly because the Ice Warrior episode had the most ludicrous ending. A homicidal maniac kills loads of innocent people and the Doctor salutes him at the end when the Ice Warrior boards his ship? Are you shitting me? Time to go Moffatt. If I can’t be bothered to watch it week after week then there must be more.
Capaldi is an excellent choice, let’s hope the stories aren’t as stupid, boring and mind boggling confusing as the Smith stories have been.
Oh and you completely made a mess of the last Weeping Angels story too.
