Preparing For The Oncoming Storm

I am getting super excited and nervous for the new Doctor Who -- and the new Doctor! -- tomorrow. Peter Capaldi, from everything I've seen, is a fantastic actor, a true-TARDIS-blue Who fan, and a really good guy, and I have nothing but positive feelings about his casting. But right now, some treacherous little voice in the back of my mind keeps whispering, "But... But what if you inexplicably hate him? What then?" I am attempting to beat these unworthy thoughts off with a mental baseball bat (much like Ace using one to smash up a Dalek).

Seriously, I'm sure it's going to be great, and I so am very much looking forward to it. Isn't it tomorrow yet?


  1. I am cautiously optimistic. After the last season (and the third season of Sherlock), I think the bloom is off the Steven Moffatt rose for me a little. But I am genuinely interested to see what Capaldi does with the role. There's honestly no way I'm not going to watch.

    1. I'm still happy enough with Moffat. (Certainly as far as Who goes, anyway. I do think the most recent season of Sherlock was a little weak.) And it will be very interesting, indeed. to see how Capaldi plays it.
