I’m watching the season premiere of Doctor Who on BBC America.
Of course, it’s not just a new season, but an entirely new doctor — Scottish actor Peter Capaldi now portrays the regenerated Doctor Who, replacing the very beloved Matt Smith.
So far companion Clara is having trouble accepting the ‘update’…and I have to admit, so am I.
I started watching the series with Matt at the helm. While I’ve seen clips from past shows and different doctors — and think I would have enjoyed David Tennant’s take on the role —
I don’t want another doctor.
Of course, it’s been less than one episode. I know on an intellectual level that Capaldi will make the role his own, and, with time, I’ll probably be on board. Still…
Change is so hard.
