    Heh, a Malcolm Tucker style Dr Who would be amusing.

    But not as THE Doctor. That's the issue kids map their childhoods by their first Dr Who, and sadly for Capaldi who is a fine actor the Malcolm Tucker aura is just too much for what is the biggest kids show in the country.

    Not sure how good it'll be to keep the younger audience interested - all the Doctor's of the 'reboot' have been young and somewhat aimed at the teen market. We'll see!

    Yeah but you're not playing Dr Who.

    Perhaps it's because he'll be the last one and die?

    As long as he gets lines like he did in The Loop, this'll be awesome.

    I think he will be good, although I take the point about children looking for his previous work online!

    He is a very good actor and I am sure that he will relish the challenge. It looks like he will be allowed to be Scottish too, unlike David Tennant.
    I'm not sure the age of the doctor matters and I really don't think children will notice as long as the character isn't "old" in the way he behaves.

    Seriously can you imagine the BBC giving Capaldi Dr Who? When all the kiddie winks go on YouTube to look at Dr Who's other roles?!
    Looks like the BBC gave Capaldi Doctor Who!

    in world war Z, he played "W.H.O Doctor". Coincedence?
