His Oscar was all over every story about him last week.

I hope they go with this look for him as The Doctor.

Winning a short film Oscar is like winning the Mid-American Conference championship.

"The movie the BAFTA award for Best Short Film shortly before the Oscars."

The whole thing?

Not to mention the fine work he did writing songs with Steve Winwood in Traffic.

Unless it's animated short, in which case, you're going to be offered a feature film deal within three years.

And it stars the only actor* to have played two different official (albeit non-canonical) BBC Doctors - and who hammed it up as Dr. Simeon and the Great Intelligence in several episodes over the past year.


* Unless you also count Sylvester McCoy when he served as a body double for Colin Baker who refused to come back for his regeneration scene.

You know Jackie farking Chan about me. You know fark all about me! I am totally beyond the realms of your farkin' tousle-haired farkin' dim-witted compre-farking-hension. I don't just take this farking job home, you know! I take this job home, it farking ties me to the bed, and it farkin' farks me from arsehole to breakfast! Then it wakes me up in the morning with a cup full of piss slammed in my face, slaps me about the chops to make sure I'm awake enough so it can kick me in the farking bollocks! This job has taken me in every hole in my farking body. "Doctor!", it's gone, you can't know the Doctor because the Doctor is not here! The Doctor farking left the building farking years ago! This is a farking husk, I am a farking host for this farking job. Do you want this job? Yes? You do farking want this job? Then you're gonna have to swallow this whole farking life and let it grow inside you like a parasite, getting bigger and bigger and bigger until it farking eats your insides alive and it stares out of your eyes and tells you what to do.

Read a nice article this morning that said, essentially, we shouldn't look down on people who are up in arms about an older Doctor and people geek out in different ways.

Wish I could find it. It was on one of the Who fansites, just can't remember which.

No, just tired of you whining about thinks that people don't actually say here.  Like I said: if you want to get it out of your system go troll a Doctor Who fanboard.  Leave the Who threads here on Fark as a place for grownups to talk, as they were before you showed up.

Honestly, I'm tired of fanboys altogether... from the "ZOMG Old Doctor" ones, to the "How Dare You make a single criticism about the mostest perfect show I love!" type like ol' Yeast Infection up there.

So, anyway, what was the show New Doctor was on (and is obviously being quoted many times)? The Thick of It? A Political show? What, like a foul-mouthed Yes Minister for the new millennium?

Oh, yes, leave the "grown-ups" to talk about their favorite children's show, and what bit of wanky headcanon they want to expound upon this week. You're one of the "U DISAGREE, U BE TROLL" types, so I can see where you're coming from.

Ignore button is on the right. Use it. I just wish the ignore feature included all headline submissions from a user, too, so you'd never see one of your special Who threads again.

See, I'm guessing that would be amusing if I had ever seen that damn show.

I don't think you're a troll.  I think your a whiny, self-centered twit whose obsession about Doctor who "fanbois" says more about your own personal, deep-seated psychological problems than it does about the show, which is, fundamentally, just a TV show.

And what you says goes for you as well: don't want to read my responses to you?  Put me on Ignore and you'll never see me again.  Personally, I like pointing out how extreme and bizarre your obsession with the show is, so I'll keep doing it, every chance I get.

Have a nice day.

I amazed at the number of people who never heard of Thick of It who now suddenly now write about it in a way that implies that they've been fans of it for years. This is kind of the the way when a newspaper misses a story they don't cover it for a few days. When they do, the story is written in such a way to imply that the story was a) not important or b) that they covered it already.

Craig Ferguson (yes the Late Late Show Craig Ferguson) and Capaldi were once in the same rock band in Glasgow back in the 80's....I remember reading that in CFs book.  Had good words to say about Capaldi, so I am sure he is happy to see his former bandmate get a legendary role

I fully admit to not having seen the whole show outside of the clips of it I've seen. And those are bloody brilliant. I look forward to making my library purchase the whole series.

That said, I've also read many pages worth of character quotes, specifically Capaldi's Malcolm Tucker. He is brilliantly profane.

I absolutely fell in love with Capaldi in Local Hero. I can't wait for the new season. He most definitely has a whacky side, too. Look for "Fortysomething" full episodes on Youtube, starring a pre House Hugh Laurie as Dr. Paul Slippery, Capaldi as his flaky clinic partner, Duckface from Four Weddings and a Funeral as Paul's wife, and bonus super young Benedict Cumberbatch as Paul's oldest son Rory.

6 48 minute episodes all on Youtube (about half directed by Laurie). Funny British type comedy. Capaldi is Batshiat in episode 3 IIRC.
