SFX’s online followers love ( and hate) Peter Capaldi’s debut series
I think it’s been great – I have been a bit stumped by complaints around the loss of whimsy in gaining Capaldi. It’s great to have a Doctor confused with the world and people at large again.
Capaldi is excellent, but could do with better scripts. I was expecting this season to blow me away, but there have only been a handful of episodes which have really been good.
Jelly babies in a cigarette case! Priceless!
Capaldi is the next Tom Baker. He was made to be the Doctor.
I love Capaldi’s Doctor, and hope he sticks around for a good while. Yes, he’s a grumpy bugger (“she cares so I don’t have to” – ouch!), but he’s brought back a muchneeded gravitas to the role.
Terrible. Watched the first episode with Capaldi after not watching any Matt Smith and then gave up again. No one can beat David Tennant, sorry.
It’s turning into a soap. When will Clara stop whingeing? Please!
I would very much love this series if it was more about the Doctor and much less about Clara and her the subplot with Mr Pink. The show is called Doctor Who but he seems to be taking a back seat to Clara.
I think that they should eliminate the Clara character. I’m tired of the companion being more clever and amazing than the Doctor.
Capaldi’s Doctor is irascible, arrogant, uncompromising and fun. It almost makes up for the nonsensical plots he’s trying to save.
