It is no secret that I am Doctor Who fan. I absolutely love the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi. I was skeptical at first. I will admit to finding both Ten and Eleven to be serious eye candy and good boyfriendy type Doctors.
However, Twelve, or Dozen as I now call him has an arrogant, wickedly sardonic, dangerous air about him that I found sort of addictive. You can feel the weight of the 2000+ year old Time Lord's lifespan in his performance. He is unpredictable and the show has promised to go into darker areas of his character this year. I can't wait. Capaldi has said in interviews that he isn't necessarily a pin-up or a leading man type. I beg to differ. He isn't conventional, but there is an underlying eroticism in his character. You only have to see the way he uses his long-fingered elegant hands to be a believer.
So far, during Season 8 everything has gone his way and I'm waiting for someone to seriously cross him. With Ten and Eleven they were generally affable, puppy-like almost. On a good day, Dozen is grumpy. I have a sick sort of anticipation going as we are heading into the season finale. I hate to be the thing that he faces. I can't imagine it going well for whatever monster crosses him.
