HOT TOPIC Peter Capaldi's Doctor

We've seen him in three adventures now, so we're getting a pretty good idea of what Peter Capaldi's Doctor is like - and he's very different from his predecessor. He can be rude, and appear uncaring. He thinks human beings are "puddingheads". He could scowl for Eng... er, Scotland. And he has a ruthless streak - indeed, is he even a pacifist anymore?

What do you think of the Twelfth Doctor? Is he what you expected from Capaldi? Has his portrayal changed the programme for the better? Do you like him? And if you don't, does it matter, as long as the character is interesting?
