doctor who extras | 8.05 time heist

Oh I am. Don’t worry. No problems there. Like, I have zero problems with looking at you if that’s what you’re asking me to do.

5 Episodes in, here’s the problem with the Twelfth Doctor.

We just don’t really know him.

This year has been Clara’s year. And don’t get me wrong - that’s great. That character was just so underwritten last year, and it was tough because I really wanted to like her purely due to how hard you could tell Jenna Coleman was trying. And then this year they’re giving her time and showing you all these different sides to her character that she finally feels like a real girl and Jenna doesn’t have to rely solely on her talent because the material is there at last to work with her.

But in doing that I think the Doctor has been slightly… forgotten?

I know the Doctor as a character is intended to be mysterious. But we just don’t really know anything about the soul of this Doctor. We don’t know what he wants, we don’t know what he’s motivated by. And it’s the same situation as last year - Capaldi is killing it in every scene he’s in and working his Scottish arse off to put his own stamp on the character - but the writing just isn’t helping him at all.

Show me this Doctor against the ropes! Show me him fighting for something he REALLY wants. Then show me him fail and let me see how he’ll deal with that.

It just feels like they’re writing a default Doctor instead of a new Doctor. Which considering that these scripts will have been partially written before Peter was cast, is understandable.

On the bright side, I think these problems are easily fixed and will happen automatically as people start to write for Peter and not just a blank Doctor. Combine that with the kick ass Clara and great stories we’ve had this year, and we’ll be golden. :)
