Capaldi's Doctor is one to HATE, or is he?
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?
Peter Capaldi cannot be regenerating during 2017 season
The 2017 season official trailer ends with Regeneration Energy clearly emanating from Capaldi's hands as he appears to be struggling. Did that mean Capaldi's Doctor will regenerate during the season, and someone else is playing The Doctor for the Christmas special? Today, Cultbox is reporting that Capaldi is filming Christmas Special scenes this summer. Therefore, he is The Doctor for that episode, and presumably his Regeneration is at the end of the Special.
Peter Capaldi's memories of William Hartnell, the First Doctor
Peter Capaldi's Doctor is in a way a reenactment of The First Doctor, given that his incarnation is the first in a new cycle of regenerations. Hence throughout Capaldi's tenure there were many homages to the Hartnell era. In this video we have Capaldi remembering who Hartnell was, and what he did for Doctor Who.
