Doctor Who  
It is official; I love Capaldi's Doctor and I'm reasonably certain I'm going to love series eight :)

Help I don't like 12 what's wrong with me. Everybody loves him but I'm having terrible withdrawal symptoms and I'm not sure I can get over it. I want to like him I really really want to like him. But I'm not feeling it. What am I missing?

There's nothing wrong with you at all. He is so different from any other modern Doctor that he's bound to take some getting used to. And there's no rule that says you have to like the Doctor.

I don't think we'd be best buds if he were to whisk me away in the TARDIS. He's too alien. For me it's that very alienness that is a good thing. He reminds me of certain aspects of each of the old school Doctors. He's a mad man in a blue box again and that is just brilliant IMHO.

Just remember, at the time almost nobody liked Six. I still don't like him very much. But Colin Baker had poor writing in his tenure. So far I dint think that will be a problem for Capaldi so hopefully even if you don't like the Doctor you will still enjoy the episodes.

Funny you should mention 6. Because I got that vibe too. Hubby says I'm just shallow because the doctor isn't cute and flirty any more. He may be right. Lol. It's not that I don't like him. It's just going to be an adjustment but if the stories are good I'll get over my reservations quickly. I would never abandon the Doctor. I love this show too much. Thanks for the perspective. :).

Btw I may be heading to the UK for work in January. I'll let you know because I would take extra time to see you again!!

That would be brilliant :)

Talking of not liking Six (which I didn't either, to the extent that I stopped watching the show, which is one reason why I love Seven so much as he gave me my love of Doctor Who back again), it's worth listening to some of the audios - his Doctor is much better written in those.

Happy birthday! May all your wishes come true - except for those that need to stay unfulfilled ;)
