Regenerations #1-11 and What’s in Store for #12 A twelve part series on the episodes, serials, and one Movie that surround the most iconic piece of Doctor Who Cannon, The Regeneration and what will be coming for Peter Capaldi
Part 12 The New Guy
So we have a new Doctor in the house. I haven’t seen any of Peter Capadli‘s work except Doctor Who and Torchwood:COE. I’m not sure how he will be as The Doctor. He strikes me as a cross between Chris Ecceslston and Peter Davisdon. He seems like he will be serious but with a wry sense of humour. There is one important thing to note though. Moffat said story ARC. That implies a set period of time. I give him one, two years tops. Then we will be going through this all over again. It seems we will always be getting our hearts broken with the Doctor. I think I know why. He can never belong to us. Like Martha Jones discovered, he not for us, he’s for the universe. Rose couldn’t have him either, she only got half, the human half in fact. The Doctor is more important than we know. We should be grateful that we have had such wonderful men to play him and be hopeful that we get as much time as possible with him. After all he’s already in his 13th incarnation if you count John Hurt’s character as cannon. And Time Lords only get 12 regenerations!
