I was hoping this wouldn’t happen so soon. Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who
The latest Doctor Who Christmas special; The Return of Doctor Who is a very good story. It is what a Doctor Who Christmas story ought to be with the Doctor actually helping individuals to have better life, and stopping an alien invasion of Earth at the same time. This story has Peter Capaldi’s showing more humor, and more empathy for other beings than we have seen in the past. If that trend continues into future episodes of the show, the tenth series of the show could be most enjoyable. If you haven’t seen the 2016 Christmas special of Doctor Who, I highly recommend that you do. It’s very fun ride. If you have seen it, watch it again.
This afternoon I saw a video in which a guy was speculating what the upcoming series of Doctor Who was going to be like. I have an idea. Wait and see what happens when the episodes come out. How will Peter Capaldi play the Doctor? Let’s wait and find out. I have speculated that there will be a certain amount of Jon Pertwee, the third Doctor, in Capaldi’s portrayal since Pertwee is Capaldi’s favorite Doctor. And I still think that is likely to happen whether Capaldi intends it to, or not. But if that doesn’t happen, I won’t be disappointed. All this speculation is a waste of time. Let’s just enjoy the program for another fifty years, or more.
The new look for Peter Capaldi on Doctor Who was unveiled yesterday. It seems to harken back slightly to the garb worn the third Doctor Jon Pertwee
One the great scenes in the Doctor Who Fiftieth anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor was when Tom Baker (the fourth Doctor) appeared as the curator. So, why couldn’t the other classic Doctors, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Paul McGann return in cameos as well? It could be part of the storyline of the Doctor searching Galifrey. Each actor could appear as a wise sage to advise the Doctor. It looks as the Peter Capaldi Doctor will be struggling to get his bearings. It would be fun to see people from the past helping him.
The next episode of Doctor Who will be bittersweet for me. It will be the end of the Matt Smith era and the beginning of the Peter Capaldi era. I look forward to seeing Peter Capaldi, I expect him to have some aspects of the Jon Pertwee Doctor and I hope he stays at least 5 series. But I will miss Matt Smith. I have enjoyed his portrayal of the Doctor very much. He has reminded me of Patrick Troughton and William Hartnell. But changing Doctors has long been a part of the show, and it’s a big reason why it has been so successful.
