I don't recall if this is a repeat or not.

It's just a regeneration.

Can even Capaldi save this series from its showrunners?

Under the "what have you done for me lately" approach, The Day of the Doctor was the tits, so I have no reason to think it will not be good.

I'll give you that mostly. There were many elements of Day of the Doctor I liked. I liked how they logically brought Rose back (and yet didn't). I thought the writing for that was very good.  I liked John Hurt, but then he's John Hurt.

Surprisingly I was disappointed with Tennant and Smith, preferring in a much smaller role, Paul McGann in Night of the Doctor.

The story of TDOTD I thought over all was weak given how much build up there was for it (admitting there was almost no way they could meet expectations.)

I saw it downloaded in not so good resolution, I am curious, was the CGI of the past doctors as horrible as it looked on my screen in 8 - 10 bit?  (I was annoyed they CGI'd in doctors who they could have just brought on, except they had been douchebags to them in the past.)

You can't really have the dead doctors looking all spiffy and as young as they were at the time of their roles standing next to a bald, obese Colin Baker and company. You had to have consistency across the line-up, and I thought the shot was very neat. Also, they did try to bring Eccleston on, but he refused. I even saw an interview where someone asked his impression of Matt Smith's Doctor, and he replied that he'd never seen it.

I really enjoyed Eccleston. He was "my Doctor". But then I really enjoyed Tennant as well. Oddly, the past three years of Smith have left me with a sour taste for Smith and Tennant. Netflix keep suggesting I rewatch Who, and while I am truly looking forward to Capaldi, I keep flipping over to X Files rather than Who reruns. That may be my Eccleston fanboi white knighting defense shinning through, but it might be that all in all, in the long run I just find the last two doctors have relied more on shtick than on wonderful scripts.

I've recently re-watched Season 1. I fear you have a selective memory.

Anne Droid, farting aliens disguised as comically obese humans, mustache twirling American villains.

There are 6 really good episodes in Season 1. The rest runs mediocre to just bad (a trend which runs throughout the reboot - 5 or 6 really good episodes a season - 3 or 4 solid and a couple of absolute stinkers).

Eccleston is a fantastic actor and really does a lot to elevate the material (the scene in Dalek where he first encounters the titular creature is among the finest acting I've seen in a genre show) but the quality of writing has been pretty consistent since the show came back.

I wasn't saying season one was all wonderful scripts, just that Eccleston's doctor had far less shtick.

I loved Eccleston, he was "my Doctor".  I wish he'd get over himself, and do something like the 50th for the FANS.

Yeah, I get his point and support him and think his Doctor was terrific. Maybe if/when there's a new showrunner, he can give the fans and franchise a nod.
