Chibnall is rumoured. Jack Lothian of Skins is a definate. That will be interesting as he wrote for Capaldi.
I'm expecting Vastra, Jenny and Stead to provide safe haven to the freshly regenerated Doctor in episode one.
Everyone's talking Damian Maloney for Claras love interest - which would be interesting if he was a bad sort :-D. Daniel Kaluuya might of been talking to Cardiff about a boyfriend role and not The Doctor...?

If he's going to be a companion I hope it's resuming his role as Barclay and not another new character who just happens to look like a Series 4 character.

Steven Moffat offers a few intriguing titbits on Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (#464). Here’s some highlights:

Moffat is pretty certain Capaldi will keep his native Scottish accent for the role
At the moment, they’ve only discussed Twelve’s costume in the lightest terms
Moffat wanted to flip the switch the other way after having two youthful and accessible Doctors in a row
He’s going to be an older, trickier and fiercer Doctor
“Just as Clara’s learning to have a proper old crush on him, suddenly he’s Malcolm Tucker!”
Moffat thinks it’ll be fun seeing Clara cope with the Doctor being completely different…
…”I think the fun story will be – and we have the opportunity here – is this is what regeneration can do to you. He can be very, very different.”
“People really love Jenna, so we make the Doctor quite difficult…”
…Moffat likens the situation to Tom Baker’s first season: “He’s really quite difficult to take at the beginning, and you’re very grateful that Sarah and the Brigadier are there to reassure you.”
By the sound of it, that idea could either go well, as with Baker or badly as with the other Baker, although given Moffat's track record, it's more likely to turn out like Colin.

Who the hell was Barclay?! :chase:
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

Will this end well? Time will tell.

So no mockney? Great! Lots of planets have a North (I'm told even this one does :) )

Ooh, skimpy?! :D

Accessible? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Rest sounds good though.
“Just as Clara’s learning to have a proper old crush on him, suddenly he’s Malcolm Tucker!”
Wrong on so many levels. "Just as Clara's worked out that he's an alien and she's a stupid ape, he turns into William Hartnell" would have been so much better.
Moffat thinks it’ll be fun seeing Clara cope with the Doctor being completely different…
…”I think the fun story will be – and we have the opportunity here – is this is what regeneration can do to you. He can be very, very different.”
“People really love Jenna, so we make the Doctor quite difficult…”
Who are these "people" ? (Apart from Moffat, I mean.) So far, the best you can say is marginally more likeable than Amy or River Song, so we're in the Faint Praise department...
…Moffat likens the situation to Tom Baker’s first season: “He’s really quite difficult to take at the beginning, and you’re very grateful that Sarah and the Brigadier are there to reassure you.”
You wish. Well, I can only hope he's right. (So where was the Brig in "Genesis of the Daleks" and "The Ark in Space" ?)

"Clara Oswald is an idiot!" - yes, that could work.

Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan.

Which series 4 character would that be then Dan?

I sorta like Jenna as a person (sorta) but I absolutely loathe Clara as a companion.

And the more I hear about Moffat's plans for 12, the more I'm losing interest. Maybe Christmas will surprise me.

Yeah, me too. I've had it since 2005, in fact, that's a long time to harbour a sinking feeling. It got perked up a few times - well mainly when Matt came along. Sigh. And now we have an "older, fiercer, trickier" Doctor - apparently. Which on paper sounds good. But........history shows....be careful what you wish for.

Or to be exact, what well-written drama should be. Not that I need 60s and 70s Who to tell me that, there are loads of works I can read (or watch) to form an opinion of what does and doesn't work dramatically. William Shakespeare, Henrik Ibsen, Ian Fleming, Anton Chekov, Janet Frame, Tove Jannson, Ursula le Guin, Philip K Dick and hundreds of other people have all produced brilliant drama that works, and which gives me a basis for comparison.

I feel tempted to quote Stephen Moffat explaining that there are standards by which dramas may be judged...

Well, Stephen Moffat thinks it's brilliant, so maybe you made a wise decision.
