See, Ferguson gets it. What I don’t understand though is that Capaldi is going on the Graham Norton Show and referring to himself as “the new Doctor Who”. What’s that about? Is he trying not to alienate the population that always gets it wrong?

I tell you one thing though, it’s certainly pissing off a lot of actual fans.

Ever see an interview with Verity Lambert? She was always referring to the character as “Doctor Who.” As did David Whitaker.

Do you recognize those names?

Actual fans should.

Those are the names of the series first producer and script editor.

As far as I’m concerned, having been involved in the actual creative end of the production of Doctor Who in 1963, their example trumps the pronouncements of celebrity superfans like Craig Ferguson.

Fandom needs to get over this “He’s called the Doctor, not Doctor Who” obsession.

Yes of course I know who Verity and David are. I’m not a numpty.

All I’m saying is, referring to the character as “Doctor Who” is outdated and in my opinion, incorrect. “Doctor Who” is the title of the show, not the title of the character. Whereas, for instance, in the show “House” they actually call him House and it’s fine because that’s what the script says and it’s also correct when speaking of both the title of show and the title of the character, simultaneously.

So, in my personal opinion (and many others), it only makes sense for the general public, interviewers, and other media to call the character by the character’s actual name, as it’s said in the script and all other publications. Which is, as you know, The Doctor.

Unless he’s spinning it to mean that he’s playing the show, not the character. If you look at it that way it communicates as:

"I can’t believe I get to play Doctor Who

OR

"I can’t believe I get to play the show

It makes a little more sense that way.

people using the word “lovers” in conversation makes me want to gag.

I don’t know how I feel about these opening creds yet. I feel like this was the most perplexing thing in the whole episode for me.

I especially don’t like the theme update
