    He's actually the greatest Doctor

      The fact that he actually brought some emotional goddamn maturity to the character forever earns him a place among the greats.

    Great actor, did the best he could in the role given the parameters and circumstances he had to work with.
    However, terrible period of the show itself, dire writing and plots. His Doctor as a character was far from how good it could have been had it played more to Capaldi's strengths.

      i genuinely wonder what the people who say this think of the show's state in S11-now
      it makes Capaldi's terrible period look like Shakespeare in comparison

        Being honest I stopped after Capaldi's run, so I couldn't possibly comment but going on surface appearances alone,
        >it makes Capaldi's terrible period look like Shakespeare in comparison
        Seems entirely accurate.

    He's my favorite nu doctor, and I watched it from Eccleston and Tennant.

      I love the way he can actually pull off genuine gravitas without seeming overwrought.

    Wouldn't know. He was a gem in a pile of shit, but that pile of shit stank so bad I couldn't bear to watch much at all. And to hell with that horrible Mr Pink bullshit.

    Also has been a complete smokeshow at every stage of his life.

    Probably the best actor to play the character and my personal favourite Doctor Who. I'm fine with accepting him as the last Doctor Who

    Mummy On The Orient Express is a classic for me. Shows the potential of what his Doctor could be. A bit curt, seemingly uncaring, but able to sacrifice the one to save the many.

    Too bad most of his episodes makes Clara his caretaker instead of companion.

      The emphasis on companions being more important, special or competent than the Doctor wore out its welcome very quickly. By Capaldi it was one of the most insufferable parts of the show.

    He is a fully realised Doctor and one that encapsulates where the Doctor should be at that point in his overall life. Yet, I do not think it is controversial to say he is however often let down by the scripts and a general attitude by the show to itself. I have not watched anything post-12th (I refused to watch a gender changed Doctor and everything that followed just seems that bad to even hate watch) but, from what I have gathered through osmosis then Doctor Who as a franchise is dead and buried with several nails in the coffin. It makes you wonder what Capaldi thinks about it all.

      Probably satisfied that he finally got to play the Doctor and sad that it took such a sudden downturn after his stint.

    This does not so much speak about the actually quality of either his performance or era but, you can reasonably argue that (somewhat being an extension from the previous Smith-era under Moffatt) his era harmed the shows popularity by being too geared towards the core fanbase at the expense of hindering the accessibility/enjoyment of the causal audience. Obviously it is a balancing act between the two.

        Which "core fanbase" would this be

          You can just take core fanbase as people who were in some way meaningfully invested in Doctor Who. That is to say those that were knowledgeable about the lore, intended to watch every episode at first broadcast, who had strong opinions about what the show did or did not do, who speculated where it was going to go, that followed news about it etc. The point being made is a focus on character dynamics, character development, multipart stories, season arcs, reference to what came previous etc. requires the audience to sufficiently invested in Doctor Who. The casual audience may like Doctor Who well enough but, they are not necessarily going to catch every episode (locking them out of multiparters, arcs, character stuff) nor do they that care for what can be described as the show being in love with its own lore & identity.

            Thanks for clearing that up. Seems like it would make more sense on the balance of things to cater to, not exactly pander but prioritise, that audience as opposed to the casual audience.
            My assumption as someone I suppose would fall under the category of that core fanbase would be that Doctor Who's premise is never going to be that popular to begin with, unless
            >the stories and acting expand its appeal beyond that by their quality
            Which I think is what most of early old-Who (1-4) was carried upon, or
            >It is diluted so much it isn't really "Doctor Who" anymore, just something vaguely aping it
            Which seems to be what has happened since Capaldi.

              At its core Doctor Who is effectively an anthology show with a main character. By which I mean you can have the Doctor in one story solving a gothic horror mystery in Victorian London, next he could be on some space station in the 31st century battling renegade robots or mutated creatures, next he could be on contemporary Earth battling some alien incursion or whatever and so and so on. The short-term success and long-term failure of NuWho comes from an over focus on companions and trying to craft grand narratives.

      I wish the show was still geared towards the core fanbase. It's solely aimed at gays and gay hags now (hence the terrible ratings)

      the problem is that tennant and matt smith were popular among teenage girls and you could never go back to an old man doctor without losing that acquired fanbase.

    Him and the chick who played Missy were the best thing to happen to the modern show. So what did they do? Bury them under a mountain of bad writing where nobodies standing next to them give arduous expoositions instead of allowing teh actors to... act. Crazy, right?
