let me get real and let me be frank about my feelings.
i am actually excited about mr. peter being the 12th doctor. there is something about him that literally looks like the doctor. i haven’t seen much of his work, but i saw him in pompeii and i saw him in skins and he’s good at blending into a role.
i’m apprehensive about whouffle, solely because i haven’t seen him on screen with jenna. doctor x clara is one of my big ships - not just eleven x clara (though those two fuckers are adorable AS SHIT). i’m excited/nervous/wishful/worried for seeing twelve x clara just because its someone new. i would be worried even if he was a younger actor. i’m worried because he’s not matt.
i know a lot of whovians think us whouffle-ers (is this a term? can it be a thing? what the fuck are we called? whoufflepuffs?) are down on twelve before we see him in action, but i don’t think that’s the case for most of us.
we are excited for capaldi. he’s going to be brilliant. he would not have been cast if he wasn’t right for the role. he IS the doctor. that’s that.
but i am worried for the chemistry change between twelve and clara. will it change? will it be better? who can say? but i’m excited to find out and i wish him all the best.
its a great wide universe, doctor. so get ready to run.
