Thoughful commentary by Doctor Who fans on the new Doctor

They've chosen a new Doctor, and it's a terrible, bad, completely awful choice!

The worst choice, really.

Plus, he's ugly.

And old!

In short, it's enough to render one incapable of spelling simple words or using proper grammar.

At least, that's what some people are saying.

I'm always amused by the way Doctor Who fans reflexively hate anything new. As for me, I'm fine with the choice. I mean, I know nothing about the guy; other than the Doctor Who episode he appeared in, "The Fires of Pompeii," I think the only thing he's been in that I've seen is Local Hero. Which is a great movie, but it's hardly enough to base an opinion on. That said, I think everyone who's played the Doctor has brought something fun and interesting to the role. Yeah, even Colin Baker and Paul McGann. True, most of Baker's episodes were pretty terrible, and the TV movie was crap, but they've both done great work on the Big Finish audios, and I faith that Steven Moffat won't handicap Capaldi with the crummy scripts Baker and McGann got.
