Don't get me wrong I love classic Who even more than the new series. I'm not in it for the fx. I wasn't bothered from the cheap prosthetics aesthetically. I felt that by hiding his face they stole half of his performance. Matt has such an amazing range of emotions expressed through his face that by aging him so much and hiding it I felt like I was watching a different actor. I wouldn't mind if they'd done it in a different episode, but this was his last.

I feel like the writers kinda felt the same way, that's why they let young Matt play the final scene instead of the aged one (giving a very convenient excuse for it).

As for the aging thing in general, we've seen it so many times now... Tennant was old with the Master, Rory waited 2000 years so did Amy and now 11 again. After a while given that time is so relative, you stop feeling the importance of having to wait all these years waiting for your salvation (that might never come)

He almost looks like the ringmaster at a circus, all that's missing is the hat!

I like it very much, although I expected something more colourful! Still it's pretty nice, and I like the 1st doctor tone.

judging from the (US) reviews so far, Capaldi IS the fuckin' Doctor. Totally owned the role.

FINALLY! An older appearing doctor. Enough of this Rhymey-wimey youth movement! Capaldi gives hints of Hartnell and Pertwee. Simply brilliant.
