Peter Capaldi's Doctor (#12 or #13 depending on how you count it) has been controversial. Apparently some outright hate him, and stopped watching Doctor Who because of Capaldi. While his Doctor isn't quite my cup-o-tea, I purely do not understand stopping watching the show. Clearly if someones total exposure to Doctor Who started in 2005, they won't grok that Colin Baker's Doctor was just as gruff and disliked. If you think about the personage whose history we're watching, each Regeneration produces different emotional effects in The Doctor. Ponder that this instance of The Doctor is something of a clerical error, and that by the Rules of Regeneration The Doctor shouldn't even still be alive after his last stand at Trenzalore. Ergo, doesn't that give an excuse for a confused personality?
David Tenant has inside tips about Chibnall's time with Doctor Who, but he won't tell Will Capaldi's Doctor actually regenerate in Season 10? Does the Mirror actually know who's the Next Doctor?
