Will and Grace
is coming back (28th of September this year) I feel like it’s the perfect time to share something I learned a while ago. John Barrowman, probably best known from Doctor Who, Torchwood and Arrow,
Barrowman was also considered for the role of Will in Will & Grace, but the producers reportedly felt he was “too straight” and the role eventually went to Eric McCormack instead. Like have you seen John Barrowman??!

I watched Titanic for the millionth time the other day, and there’s a bit where Jack kisses Rose on the hand. I decided to look up the origin of the tradition out of curiosity, and found out that with hand kissing in a formal setting pressing your lips too much on the actual hand would be considered too intimate a gesture and thus inappropriate due to it’s romantic connotations.
Well golly gee, those lips seem to be all over that hand of yours Miss Oswald.
I’ve seen people criticize Clara by saying that she doesn’t talk like a real person. First of all, what exactly does talking like real person constitute, and second, did you ever stop to consider that maybe the reason her lines sometimes feel more scripted is because that’s how she sees herself? Clara’s always wanted to be a perfect storybook heroine. She grew up with her head full of books and a poster of Marcus Aurelius on her wall, and her tendency to want control over every aspect of her life is repeatedly emphasized. Does it not make sense that the way she speaks aligns more with her idealized vision of herself than with what you might hear while walking down the street every day?
Clara Oswald is very careful about the way she presents herself to the world, and if her lines seem scripted, it’s because she scripts her life.
So, Peter’s replacement will be announced tomorrow. No doubt the fandom fallout will range from wild approval to vehement dislike, and every shade in between.
I’m not going to join the bun fight, because I honestly prefer to wait and see. I have faith that the people involved know and love the show, and will create something true to Doctor Who.
What I am interested in doing is celebrating the perfect storm that has been Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who.
For me, Peter isn’t just an actor who has played an iconic and much-loved role. He’s been the embodiment of all things good about the show. He’s worked incredibly hard to create a performance that comes alive on a punishing schedule.
He’s given us dark moments. I genuinely didn’t know if he would come back for Clara when that door closed between them in Deep Breath. On a level of course I did, but part of me wondered, has he changed that much? Will he really have her back? And when he took Clara’s hand, I cheered and I haven’t stopped cheering since. His performance has been emersive.
The sheer range of emotions the Twelfth Doctor has lived through creates the most character development of any Doctor, in my eyes. He started emotionally tight, bruised after Trenzalore, and he unwound himself with Clara’s help until he was able to ask Bill, finally, “is there anything we should be saying?” and talk about being kind. That moment of emotional honesty broke my heart.
Peter has been more than a great actor and fine Doctor, though. He’s been a wonderful ambassador for the show. He is unrelentingly kind with fans. He knows exactly what it’s like to feel flustered or in awe, to love a show so much and channel it into meeting one person. He gets Doctor Who fans because he is one.
And that’s why I like the phrase Peter is “Doctor Who”. To me, it’s not just a name, although Steven Moffat had some fun with that in World and Time, to me it means Peter is the living embodiment of the show.
Peter has breathed joy into the role. Maybe he won’t be piloting the TARDIS on our screens, but Peter Capaldi will always be the Doctor to me.
You know, I just keep thinking of that line in Husbands of River Song: “You know who you remind me of? My second wife!”
What if she means Thirteen? What if she didn’t know that Thirteen is actually the Doctor (Thirteen works out that she’s before that time Twelve met River in River’s timeline or something so keeps quiet? Idk) but naturally just really likes her anyway? Just a thought…
