It's well known that David Tennant and Tom Baker are widely considered the most famous actors to have played the role of The Doctor.
Even inside the Doctor Who fanbase, fans will argue who played The Doctor better. Tennant or Baker? That's not the question here today. The question is, will Peter Capaldi become a more popular Doctor than David Tennant and Tom Baker?
When Series 8 of Doctor Who was released worldwide, some fans were skeptical, some were excited and some just stopped watching. Most people were expecting to be a terrible choice for the role because of his... wait for it... his AGE!!
Despite the expectations of many fans, Capaldi had an in your face performance. While it seems at first a lot of the newer fans weren't impressed at first, a lot of the older fans who grew up with the classics were blown away. Many of the fans were making statements that Capaldi had become their favorite Doctor within the first episode.
I myself admit, that I was hesitant and skeptical about the new Doctor. But, he pulled me in pretty quickly and now I'm stuck between the 11th and 12th Doctor. While I loved Matt Smith's wild and outgoing personality, I also love Peter Capaldi's dark, rude and sarcastic personality.
With the new Series of Doctor Who approaching, fans are getting excited about what it's going to bring. What we've seen in the trailer, is a softer side to 12th Doctor as he is finally discovering who he really is as seen is Series 9 trailer #2.
After the release for Series 8 on Netflix, a lot more fans have converted. Even the Tennant fans, which is a complete shocker as most of them are stubborn about Tennant. With the new a series ahead, and a lot of fans hyping, it seems like Capaldi will become another fan-favorite. But in the end, we all have our favorite Doctor.
