Well,... now nearing the end of season 8 and I feel justified in my opinion of Capaldi - just brilliant.
Last weeks episode (first of a two part finale) 'Dark Water' was abasolutely thrilling. The sequence where he is betrayed etc..., by an emotionally wrought Clara and he then simply moves on to help her find Danny was superb showing just how deep and caring this Timelord is
. For me todays' world is very heart-on-sleave, look-at-me, self-obsessed etc... I love the fact this Doctor doesn't seek attention or feel the need to expose his substantial kindness, forgiveness, etc... to the world for some sort of approval. He is the real article so too speak. May this incarnation continue for seasons to come and be appreciated by those with a longer attention span that one or two episodes.
