I can’t wait to see what new Doctor Who Peter will be like

Surely, holding a door open for a member of either sex is just good manners?

LESLEY KEATING: Would you dare hold a door open for a woman?

Have your say

I’m so excited, I can’t wait for Saturday.

Yes, it’s time for Doctor Who and I’m dying to see what Peter Capaldi will bring to the role.

I feel as if Matt Smith has been keeping the seat warm between excellent regenerations.

I just hope that I’m proved right.

It’s not that I thought Matt was a bad actor. He just wasn’t for me (as, I guess, I am not for him).

I hope that Peter doesn’t let me down and that he can play the doctor as well as the part he played in The Thick Of It – where I fell a little bit in love with his searing swearing.

But while I doubt the doctor will speak in quite the same basic manner, I do hold out great hopes for believable Machiavellian shenanigans in the new series.
