Oh Good" Old Scottish Dudes " Are Fashionable Again
10 December 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

It says something about the cultural impact that a show like this is truly event television . We're going to find out who the next Doctor is via a peak time one off show on a Sunday night . As Christopher Eccleston would exclaim " Fantastic " . There might be a downside to this however and that is when DOCTOR WHO was the most popular show on British television at the end of the Tennant era we didn't get the same type of hype probably because Matt Smith wasn't a household name in his own household . If you're holding a peak time show that that insinuates that you're not going to be wheeling out a totally unknown jobbing actor as the twelfth Doctor . I'm guessing that only leaves a small handful ofcandidates ?

This show could have easily been five minutes long but is padded out by talking heads mainly of minor BBC personalities who aren't facing any court cases in the foreseeable future . The second biggest cheer of the night went to some prancing dancing queen from STRICTLY COME DANCING who announced that " No matter what the Doctor should be British " Yes I'm sure that if we had the choice between Morgan Freeman and Paterson Joseph the only choice would be the British Equity member -duh . Thankfully we didn't get any fans dressed up as a Sontaran battle fleet commander embarrassing the entire gene pool of humanity by giving their esoteric , fidistic opinions on how each and every episode is greater than the last and the only criticism is that there's not enough gay role models or humour in the show - double duh So the moment had been prepared for and the most obvious choice one Peter Capaldi walks out on stage which led to a lot of criticism on the IMDb message boards that " he's too old " , or " too ugly " or " too Scottish " which hopefully means the more shallow Americanised voice of fandom will be departing internet fandom to pursue what ever glossy nonsense that may interest them . The only downside that is that Steven " One trick pony " Moffat is staying as the boss of the show and while we're gaining an " old Scottish Dude " as The Doctor it's about time another " old Scottish dude " left the show

This review was written by Theo Robertson an old Scottish dude who is very ugly . Old ugly Scottish dudes are cool at last
