On Twitter, it seems that the Smith and Tennant aren't giing Capaldi any mercy. Some of the highlights are:

Peter Capaldi is the new Doctor Who...stupse, the BBC like they jus determine to have ugly men as the Doctor then...smh
Eww Peter Capaldi is the new Doctor Who is well ugly wtf is that all about atleast the last one and David Tennant were hot!!!
No way am I having some one as ugly as Peter capaldi taking over Matt smith
On the bright side, at least the Tennant and Smith fangirls put aside their differences.

Good grief.

And decision makers often tailor programmes to fit those sorts of mentalities. I really MUST be getting old but when I was growing up role models on TV tended to be older, and were almost seen as parenting substitutes. Blue Peter presenters weren't just out of their teens, The Doctor was (usually) played by someone old enough to be my dad and most of the 'heroes' we had to look up to were adults not barely articulate teens or 'pretty boys/girls' about whom we could fantasise being with.

Where and when did things get so messed up?

Fear not. I'm sure there will be a young male companion for the tweens to crush on.

Meh, you have to go trawling for the complainy tweets. Everyone I've seen has been thrilled.

And half of them fancy Capaldi, because he's hot! And Alan Rickman has trained them for snarky older men

For ****s sake! What can you expect on the internet though. I don't personally see Matt Smith as good looking in the slightest, but each to their own. Hardly a reason to watch though is it? Capaldi is an amazing actor, which is the important thing.

Its posts like these where I just want to slam them against the wall and tell them that David Tennant & Matt Smith arent the first actors to play the role.

The way they go on is if they started the series.

The sad truth is alot of the media and Hollywood in particular actually listens to this kind of vacuous bubbleheaded and shallow nonsense.

Which is why we should celebrate Moffats casting. He has shown guts here. As has the BBC. Its about time someone fought against this vile trend of appealing to brats.

I've seen enough fan lads dressing up as Tennant. Spiking their hair up wearing long brown coats and white pumps.

Now they have to dye their hair grey and draw lines on their face. Good.

I wish the teenyboppers would piss off and stop hijacking this show. It's too intelligent for them anyway.

Perhaps the Justin Bieber movie is more for them.

I don't give a crap about a young / old Doctor and companions. So, no.

Ugh. That would be so annoying. They don't have to partner Jenna up with someone.

I preferred the sexual tension free series of David and Catherine.

It was inevitable. As soon as Capaldi walked out I knew how the Tennant/Smith fangirls would react.

Yep, a new Mickey/Rory type to woo Clara.

All the more reason I am glad to have an older Doctor really. Casting should not be about pandering to shallow teenagers.

Indeed, if we'd got one of the younger suspects I think the future of the show would have been locked in to a procession of net pleasing actors running manically in all directions, it's this sort of curveball casting which has led to the show running for 50 years.

Intrigued by Moffat saying that this time the time was right for Capaldi, does this signal a wider change to his vision of the show?
