I have decided that I like Peter Capaldi's iteration of the doctor, he reminds me of the original. Plus the way he insults Clara is hilarious.
Yes! I love that about him. I was a little bit over Clara before this season, but they seem to be drawing her out a bit better and there hasn't been any annoying flirtation between them this season (except I was a little disappointed when he made some kind of comment about what a great date their adventure had been at the end of the last episode. I'm hoping it was an isolated incident).
