Now the sell or not? I am a huge Dr. Who fan but the truth is they have never had a Who as great as Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi. Life is long, they coulda given the youthful, strange, otherworldly Matt ten years of Who and lost nothing in the grand scheme, but by replacing him for the great actor Peter Capaldi, they lost a teen Who attracting generations of fans (not to mention generations of US fans) for a prickly Scottish pain in the neck.
Is showrunner Stephen Moffat ambitious? Absolutely he is and so is “Dr. Who” but the thing about ambition is your risks don’t always pay off. Capaldi reminds me of the white haired aging Who of the early 1960s: he exudes a temporal uncool. Moffat could have given us a female Who or could’ve given us a black Who, instead he went back to the future with a meh Who and a handful of episodes which just didn’t quite capture the magic. Plus Jenna Coleman as Clara, his new assistant, is beyond irritating. Everything about the new Who makes me go boo hoo.
As for the symphonic Who -it does look cool doesn’t it. We wrote about the London version and personally, I am seriously considering seeing it though, as Helen Bach mentioned, what the hell are they doing a Wednesday at 3pm when all the schoolchildren are, well, in school (hence the name).
at the top of the singles charts and at the top of the movie box office
