It’s been a while since I’ve done a post on Doctor Who.
But anyway, I still need to talk about the biggest piece of Who news- The 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi.
The Eleventh Doctor was funny, optimistic and charming. With the Twelfth Doctor, I think he should be strict, impatient but at the same time caring and lovable that all Doctors have.
It’s been a while since the show has had an older Doctor and Capaldi is the oldest actor to play the Doctor since the first Doctor, William Hartnell.
So what about episodes? Well on my Series 8 wishlist I said I wanted hour long episodes on other planets. Not only will this benefit the new Doctor, but it will bring back the exploration aspect of the classic series.
Here are some episode ideas-
- A Titanic episode, somewhat along the lines of Father’s Day or the Fires of Pompeii.
- An episode on a living spaceship.
- A scary episode in a proper haunted house with NO STUPID TREE THINGS!
- A medieval episode with dragons.
- The Doctor arriving in the middle of an alien war.
- Arriving in a future where the Internet has become a virtual world for people to go to.
In fact, if the BBC are reading this, start getting the best Doctor Who writers to get these episodes written and made. Or maybe just get me to write them. How about getting film scriptwriters to do episodes?
