Saw him in SF at a con a few months ago. Delightful!! My fave companions were Donna and Bill, then Amy/Rory. Looking forward to Christmas and to our new Doctor. Will miss Peter Capaldi. Heaven Sent/Hell Bent were genius and breathtaking.
I'm older than dirt, so Baker was my first. Tenant set the bar high after Eccleston's brief launch, but I loved Matt's nutty professor with a brain approach. I feel Capaldi got handed more than his share of clunker scripts, but soldiered on through some unforgettable episodes (like the two you noted).
While the choice of the next Doctor ruffled feathers, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one looking forward to the next incarnation. I need my fix!
Sugar 'em up and send 'em home
