Doctor Who: BBC said to be “thrilled” with early Peter Capaldi episodes


Early indications are that Capaldi is making an excellent Time Lord – with a “sizzling” chemistry between him and co-star Jenna Coleman, according to show sources

The BBC is said to be “delighted” and “thrilled” with the first episodes of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who.

Around five are understood to have been completed and a source on the show says that Capaldi looks on course to “make one of the best Doctors ever”. understands that the storylines have started from “the bottom up” with Capaldi’s Doctor having a clean slate of storylines with little reference to his predecessors.

“He is his own man – very distinctive,” said the source.

    I’m a bit annoyed how they’re not going to have Doctor Who starting until Autumn, it was a year ago yesterday ‘A Nightmare In Silver’ was published, and that was the penultimate episode of the season! But, then again, they did have the 50th anniversary, so It does make a bit of sense. I CANNOT WAIT!!!

    Wow… It’s funny how everyone was raging and moaning about Capaldi when he was announced as the Doctor and now everyone is excited and cannot wait to see him in action! It’s a really funny world we live in.

    Absolutely, absolutely no spoilers!!! The new series of Doctor Who needs no hype… There is enough excitement, being fuelled by the enthusiasm of the Doctor Who fans… To hype this now could be fatal for the Doctor and the future of all time!!!

    I too am looking forward to Peter Capaldi’s doctor. Each actor that takes on the role brings something a bit different and fun. Of the classic doctor’s Jon Pertwee is my favorite and David Tennant from the new series.

    Actually from what’s been said even the search for Gallifrey will take a back seat, it is intended as a long term thing, not something they’ll finish in a couple of series (like most people seem desperate to happen).

    For me, it would be
    1. The Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith
    2. The Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy
    3. The Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker
    4. The War Doctor, John Hurt
    5. The Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton
    6. The Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee
    7. The Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston
    8. The Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison
    9. The Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann
    10. The First Doctor, William Hartnell
    11. The Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker
    12. The Tenth Doctor, David Tennant
    I estimate that Capaldi will replace Pertwee as sixth favorite, or Eccleston and my seventh favorite. For now, I’m content to see how much hate I will get for liking the Tenth Doctor least of all the Doctors.

    My opinion is almost NEVER indicative of popular opinion, given my dislike of the Tenth Doctor and my fondness of Victory of the Daleks (including the New Paradigm Daleks) and The Happiness Patrol.

    I’m so looking forward to Capaldi. I do hope he stays for at least as long as Jon (5 seasons) – Jon would have carried on but for the money thing. David did almost 5. Ecclestone was a disaster…going after 1. I love RTD…….but why he did not do the relaunch with Paul McGann is utterly beyond me. Just one of the best Doctors ever……and he from “The North”!
