    Just when you’re comfy with the face…BAM! Another Doctor bites the dust.

    I’m going to have to get use to the new face. Hopefully this Doctor can roll out like the rest.

    Series 8 will air early September; BBC done it with Series 7 P1. I liked watching series 6 P2 when it was dark at 7PM but I also miss watching Doctor Who at Easter.

    But as long as you’ve got loads of Doctor Who DVD’s then your fine.

    Should wear a Hat. The Doctor hasn’t worn a Hat constantly since his 7th incarnation.

    Some newspaper I came across yesterday online, can’t remember who, said that the clothes Peter is wearing his his Doctor’s brand new outfit.

    The fools !!, they should know it’s the same outfit Matt Smith wore for the rest of series 7, along with ‘The Day of the Doctor’ and more or less for ‘The Time of the Doctor’.

    Thankfully someone commented telling them they was wrong, otherwise I would have probably told them instead.

    This year they do at least have a reason: Moffat needed to film the 50th at the same time they would usually film the series. I know its a long time away but (as always…) We just have to cope 🙁

    it’s good they’re filming his first episode first

    maybe they will air it as a special around easter!

    what are you talking about Dalek supreme? Matt’s final costume was the same overall silhouette and you have the trousers the bowtie the suspenders, the boots

    so what if they were new variations, Tom Baker had a different scarf in his last series, and Matt Smith already had an updated bowtie, jacket, shirt, boots, trousers for his 2011 series ❗

    I really don’t see why they can’t put it on in April like they used to.

    Undoubtedly he will have a new costume, as every Doctor before has assembled a new costume to separate himself from his previous incarnations. The only possibility indicating this is that Matt Smith’s final costume retained nothing from the original, except MAYBE for the boots, and even that is a pretty hollow argument, as Tom Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Paul McGann had completely new costumes by their regeneration stories.

    Looks cool. I’m interested to see what monsters Capaldi will face in his first season (I imagine Daleks are on the agenda, as Steve Moffat said the Doctor isn’t really the Doctor until he faces the Daleks in the Monster Files for Victory of the Daleks)

    is he going to have his own costume or stay on the costume that looks like the 11th Doctor?

    it seems the colour of Clara’s hair has changed since TTOTD just like rose’s hair style changing between the parting of ways and the Christmas invasion
