I am not gonna rate him until I see 5 of his episodes, but from what I see, he is a great actor and will be a great Doctor. He fits so much to be The Doctor. Also Moffat said that his Doctor will be fierce.
Steven Moffat offers a few intriguing titbits on Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (#464). Here’s some highlights:
I too wont make any assumptions about peter till we see him act. I know that whatever they do with his script or costume will be lovely. Lets just hope he doesnt turn into the strict old grandpa the first doctor was.
I don't know, I'm not too happy about him, considering they were considering women and african american people. (I also kind of wanted to somehow be chosen)
They're British, "African American" doesn't really apply.
african european ?
I highly doubt Doctor 12 was ever going to be Black British. Less than 2% of the entire UK are of African Heritage, I'm almost positive 75% or more of that less than two percent are actors.
As for them considering women, I don't know if they were or why they didn't. I do have a theory on why they didn't, but I doubt it's correct.
After seeing series 8, I like him a lot! Even though he is older, it feels really fresh. I love that they removed the romantic interest from him, as it allows his character to develop independent of that, and after the relationships with Nine-Ten/Rose and Eleven/River & sorta Clara, it's a refreshing change of pace. I also love the tension between the Doctor and Clara. We haven't seen too much of that in the past, and as a more prominent part of the story line, it allowed them to explore a different layer and dynamic within the Doctor-companion relationship.
I love that he just doesn't care. Shut up, shut up, shuttity up up up! Attack eyebrows. I'm lovin the Scotsman!
I actually really like Capaldi I think his acting is great and the way he has portrayed his feelings in series 9 is beautiful, however Steven's writing could be better
