Peter Capaldi Should NOT Play The Role Of The Doctor

Hello, my fellow Whovians. I have recently received the news that the twelfth Doctor will be portrayed by Peter Capaldi. I do not believe that this decision was the correct one. Mr. Capaldi is a talented actor and I have nothing against him. However, I feel that he has simply passed the age to portray the Doctor. Although I believe that age is just a number, Mr. Capaldi would be the second oldest actor to play the Doctor since William Hartnell(the first Doctor). He would be replacing the YOUNGEST Doctor, Matt Smith, only 26 years old. Many Whovians believe that the Doctor gets younger every time he regenerates, and having the Doctor look much older than how he looked before would be confusing. I ask you now, to make the right choice and sign this online petition. I know this is not much, but hopefully, it will lead to something grand and spectacular. Neil Armstrong said, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". We must make our voices be heard. The creators, producers, and directors must choose a different actor to play the Doctor. As Aesop once said, "United we stand, divided we fall". And we must unite, in one voice, to say PETER CAPALDI SHOULD NOT PLAY THE ROLE OF THE DOCTOR!!!

  • Pamela Thistlethwaite I don't care how old the Doctor is, but I do not like the way Capaldi's Doctor has been protrayed in Series 8 (or the Christmas special). Instead of being herioc, he's abusive. Instead of being wise, he's emotionally immature (far more than Smith ever was). Instead of being someone you can admire, he's a character who gathers nothing but pity and disappointment. We want a heroic, brave, emotionally honest Doctor, not a barely comprehensible, crusty, abusive grouch.

  • Joelle I can't even watch the new season. I can't understand what he is saying half the time and on top of that he's just not right for the part. He was turned down in the past for the role of the doctor. He was in the pompeii episode and he is a bad guy in torchwood. All of the avid doctor who fans around where I live (Avid as in we all had the 50th anniversary movies sold out for every showing) hate him as the doctor. He was great in skins, and great in the pompeii episode. With a heavy heart I will not be watching doctor who again until he regenerates. Why would you do this BBC. Seriously.
