Peter Capaldi is a brilliant doctor and for me (assuming we aren't counting the war doctor) he is my favourite New Who Doctor. Yes, Capladi has been cast before in doctor who and torchwood but Moffat has explained this in interviews and an episode in season 9. I personally think Clara Oswald was a horrible companion and in some ways weighed down Capaldi's Doctor.

Peter Capaldi is a terrible doctor. He acts as if he has depression[1]. There are no moments of happiness, only sadness or (supposed) fear. He distorts the role of the doctor from being a serious but humorous character into a serious character who is mostly serious but occasionally attempts to be funny but fails [1]. He walk has been compared to the walk of Mr.Bean (which is intentionally stupidly done [1][2].

Capaldi's doctor is supposed to be old and grumpy that is why he was chosen, they felt the eleventh doctor was the optimist and as like any other regeneration he brings a new feel to the doctor. they do add funny moments which i believe was very successful. Matt smith was supposed to be the doctor who was soft on the outside and dark on the inside, which is what changes in 12. the doctor now acts like a damaged man who cares for nobody but himself when really all he wants is a hug.

You have contradicted yourself. You begin by saying:

" Capaldi's doctor is supposed to be old and grumpy "

You then say:

" they do add funny moments "

This makes no sense. If they want him to be old and grumpy then why would they add funny scenes and lines for him? Could you also provide citations for this particular claim since it doesn't not help your side in any way without proof.

You have dropped my walk comparison argument which still bares equal weight.

I disagree that Capaldi distorted the Doctor's role. He's like a mix of 1 and 3. 1 was actually an a**hole, and 3 was a serious combatant. Capaldi at least developed that, but he's very close to the original idea of the Doctor.

Capaldi is amazing. That season finale almost made him my favorite Doctor. Like he's definitely my second favorite and in close competition with my top position, which is held by 4.
