Also I loved the whole "what have I done that's caused you two to talk like children?" thing. One of my favourite bits was near the end, thus:

"Allons-y!"

...and that was just a clip of him from his season, like the other old Doctors. I'm a bit disappointed that he has apparently remained a crankypants and didn't appear, even briefly, for the 50th.

And re: the numbering, I agree that within the show it doesn't really matter what number the Doctor is, but for the fans (*points at self*) it makes the brain go wibbly-wobbly

Agreed re: the numbering, TheatreGeek! I was like... "That was cannon from the first Doctor, wasn't it? I'm pretty sure it was!"

Explains why he's so fixated on England, though, even if it's on a subconscious level.

#9's character wouldn't have really fit into this story anyway. I'm far more interested in the story that goes with convincing him to show up and zap Gallifrey. And I think #13 is probably the only Doctor who could coerce him to do it. So I still have hope for a gritty story that would really feature #9 and perhaps stroke Eccleston's ego.

Everyone in the theatre cheered and applauded when Capaldi's eyebrows showed up on screen. It seems like everyone is totally fine with Matt Smith bowing out.

I enjoyed that review, but, oh my goodness, it is hard to read while there are gifs moving around above and below the text.

When Capaldi's eyebrows showed up, I was slapping my thighs and leaping about the sofa, and I'm NOT fine with Matt Smith bowing out - he's been my favourite of the modern Doctors. But, if anyone has to do it, it's great that it's Capaldi, and also that was a perfect one-second use of him, a perfect tease. Love for Capaldi =/= happy to see Smith leave.

My usual trajectory with a new Doctor is "upset that beloved Doctor is leaving and distrust of whoever is slated to take over" > "upset that beloved Doctor has left but reluctantly willing to give wretchedly unsatisfactory new Doctor a chance" > "intrigued by new Doctor" > "enchanted with new Doctor" > "what was the name of the previous Doctor again?". I almost feel that loving Capaldi before he even starts is a dangerous move, in case his casting for some reason doesn't work.

I've loved Smith's time as Doctor, but I'm also excited about Capaldi who will be awesome and refreshing.

Nothing like how I just couldn't wait for Tennant to go.

I figured out the problem was trying to watch it on a tablet. Had to turn on the computer to finally see it.

Heh, I just looked at the first pages of this thread. Page 2 has everyone watching the Season 3 finale and it's hilarious to read everybody freaking the eff out

I just chanced on a clip of their interview, it was a lot of fun and made me happy.

I've been thinking about this. I've seen Peter Capaldi in Local Hero (1983), The Lair of the White Worm (1988), Neverwhere (1996), a Midsomers Murders episode, The Thick of It, and the Fires of Pompeii episode of Doctor Who. It's the most I've ever seen of a Doctor before he became the Doctor. More even than Peter Davison and I watched Love for Lydia when it repeated in the US in 1980. I AM SO EXCITED! I have a feeling (a hope) that Peter Capaldi is going to be one of my favorites.

Decided to re-watch from the beginning of Series Four. Oh gosh. Seriously. Donna + Ten. I love the sibling vibe they had going.
Also, just re-watched Fires of Pompeii and am trying to see Capaldi as the Doctor. It's not working. Though I can see him being more 9ish, as opposed to the kind of... lighter, quirkier 10 and 11?
Not that 10 and 11 were always light and quirky but. Anyway.

I think he's probably going to be a more serious Doctor than the past two, but that's all right - the serious Doctors were some of the best.

I did like the War Doctor's dislike of the childishness of 10 and 11. Some of Capaldi's moodiness will be awesome.

So, Christmas special... anyone else feel like they are trying to cram AS MANY MONSTERS AS POSSIBLE into Matt's last episode?

So far it just looks like a larger scale version of the Pandorica episodes.
