A Certain Four Year Old Is Not Very Happy About Peter Capaldi Replacing Matt Smith as 'Doctor Who'

Look: I’m not that broken up about Matt Smith leaving Doctor Who, because his time was up, and I’m really excited about Peter Capaldi taking over as the next Doctor. But a few years ago, when D10 put down his sonic screwdriver to make way for Matt Smith, I felt plenty hurt. I’m not going to say it my world came crashing to an end, but it felt that way, and if I had to experience that when I was four years old, two things would be running through my mind: 1) Complete and total devastation, and 2) why are my parents letting me watch Doctor Who? I’m only four years old, for God’s sake! Do you know how many poopy nightmares I’ve had about The Silence? Will someone please call the Department of Child Services?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Baboon

    More like as The Doctor in Doctor Who. Where's the outrage over that, huh?

  • Emma

    Is this where I go to complain that you guys never actually recapped the Christmas episode?

  • Baboon

    Despite PROMISING it was coming?! Rabble Rabble Rabble!

  • Other than Five, Matt Smith was probably my least favorite Doctor, so I'm not at all sad to see him to go.

  • Tinkerville

    Unlike with Tennant, whose character I was clinging onto like a cat on a sailboat, I really felt like it was Matt's time to go. And I've a feeling Capaldi's going to kill it.

  • Can Anna Chancellor be his next companion so I can fool myself into thinking that The Hour wasn't actually cancelled?

  • Gayle

    No matter what he does and as brilliant as he undoubtedly is, Peter Capaldi will never be anyone but Tristram the floppy haired TV producer who broke Geraldine Granger's heart. Damn, I miss the Vicar of Dibley.

  • Zirza

    I was watching one of their Christmas Specials over the holidays and I was all OH MY GOD IT'S THE DOCTOR GERALDINE IT'S THE DOCTOR.

    He'll never beat Sean Bean in that department, though.

  • Anne At Large

    Dying to know how this makes you feel about Thorin Oakenshield. I am a Dawn French fan but never got hooked on the show.

  • Gayle

    What on earth is John Thornton doing with such a bloody scruffy haircut, it'll get stuck in the machinery and his mother won't approve at all.

  • Three_nineteen

    I was watching M*A*S*H by the time I was six.

  • Zirza

    I was watching Silence of the Lambs when I was seven, along with my five year old brother. Kids these days are pussies.

  • Three_nineteen

    When there's one TV in the house, you either watch what Dad's watching or go to your room.

  • Zirza

    Silence of the Lambs was our own initiative, actually. My parents were at the neighbours' house and we went back early because we got bored. We'd overheard our mum say she liked that film so we figured, hey, it's probably a comedy about sheep or something,

    Dad, on the other hand, made me watch Stephen King's It when I was six. I can tell you that Silence of the Lambs is not that scary to a six year old but STEPHEN KING's IT DEFINITELY IS. THANKS A LOT DAD.

  • Three_nineteen

    I started reading King's books when I was around eight. I don't know if my parents had no idea what they were about, or if they just thought I could handle it, but I managed to not become an insane serial killer (yet), so I guess good parenting there, Mom and Dad.

  • JustOP

    Never had a problem with the casting of Capaldi. Been a fan for a while. Any naysayyers, please watch:

  • smoot

    This makes me feel a little better. I only trust people who speak profanity fluently.

  • BWeaves

    I've been a fan of Capaldi after I saw him in my all time favorite movie, Local Hero. He also blew me away as Frobisher in Torchwood. I had no idea Malcolm Tucker existed until a few weeks ago. It's brilliant, but it just goes to prove what a fantastic actor he is. I have no idea what his Doctor is going to be like, but it won't be like anything he's done before.

  • Captain_Tuttle

    I looooove Local Hero. Love it.

  • pajiba

    Yes, we should definitely show this to the four year old!

  • JJ

    I'd rather that than Caillou.

  • NateMan

    Almost anything rather than Caillou.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I didn't mind Caillou, but we managed to watch Barney only one time when Little J was of an age for it.

    I never got tired of Elmo. Never.

  • Wigamer

    I felt like watching Caillou made my kids whinier, if such a thing was possible.

  • Bodhi

    I watch an obscene amount of Wild Kratts, but I don't mind as I've learned a lot about animals

  • Captain_Tuttle

    Thank goodness (and my quick finger on the remote) my kid has no idea who or what Barney is. I'd take Caillou over Barney any day. And Kipper over all of them. Kipper's the schizz.
