Here it is folks, the time we've all been waiting for is almost upon us with the start of the new season of Doctor Who this weekend. Along with a brand spankin' new season of D.W it will also mark the entrance of Peter Capaldi's run as the new Doctor. I for one will find it rather difficult to see Capaldi in the role as it's so hard for me to separate Capaldi from the other popular character he portrayed on television, the foul mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker from the bbc show "The Thick of It".
From the trailer they released a few weeks back to promote the show it sounds like the running theme will be a darker Doctor Who that's suppose to be a call back to old school D.W. Unsure if this can be accomplished with the same show runner (Moffat) leading the charge but I guess we can only wait and see.
Returning to the mix will also be Jenna Louise Coleman as Clara Oswald, the Doctor's faithful companion. From recent interviews during their premiere press event it sounds like the show will cut out with the romantic crap that's been seen often between the Doctor and his female companions and will stick to a more traditional straight laced mentor / student relationship old school fans are accustomed to. Will really be interesting to see how Clara reacts to a different Doctor and how their relationship will evolve in the future. Anyways enough ranting, hopefully I'll see some reaction when the first episode "Deep Breath" airs later this week.
For people who have ever thought of trying to get into Doctor Who and don't know where to start, I think watching whenever a new Doctor is cast might be the best place to start.
