ok…like many other TRUE doctor who fans, I am slightly getting pissed off with this “oh but Capaldi is too old for the role , he’s not gonna be good at all, maybe I should stop watching it , he’s gonna ruin Doctor who”
WRONG!!! For those who call themselves “doctor who fans” coz you’ve probably only watch Matt smiths series , you aren’t really Who fans are you? You just like it coz the Doctor is cute and good looking (don’t get me wrong Smith played a very good Doctor and yes he was pretty cute, but not as good looking as David Tennant who played the 10th doctor in case you didn’t know) and now you’re not gonna watch it anymore coz the new Doctor is old? BULL…..SHIT!
Old my fucking arse! Ok Who history lesson:
The very first Doctor aka William Hartnell (R.I.P) was 55 years old when doctor who first came out in 1963…if you’ve watched the little documentary last year , he was loved by all children of all ages and wanted to be the Doctor thanks to William Hartnell without him there wouldn’t be Doctor who . Now do you hear people complaining of Hartnell being too old to be the Doctor?..NO!!! People and children LOVED IT!
Now Peter Capaldi is…oh guess what 55! and he’s a life long who fan since it first started, so I think he’ll know what to bring in to the Doctor character since he’s been acting for a long time so he knows his stuff. ALSO HE’S A FUCKING GOOD ACTOR!!! don’t believe me? go and watch The Thick of it, or The Hour OR The local hero and come back to me weather you think he’s a shit actor or not.
Finally…give the guy a chance! bloody hell he just got announced on live telly and started filming the episodes, at least watch one or two episodes when it’s released then you judge all you want! Also a TRUE Who fan wouldn’t really care who or what is playing the Doctor…as long as it’s still going after 50 years and is a fucking good show..that’s what I’m doing :)
