8 Moments That Taught Us All About Our Grumpy Scottish Doctor

In preparation for the final episode of Doctor Who: Series 8, Death in Heaven, we're counting down the lines and moments that warmed us to Peter Capaldi's darker, grumpier, entirely Scottish Doctor. Some of these are mean, silly or inspiring, but they're all entirely honest.

    Is there a better tool in the search for Gallifrey than eyebrows designed for war? Matt Smith would never have been able to unlock the cup of soup with his hairless brow, good thing Capaldi showed up with his fear inducing countenance.

    The Doctor's new look is straight up Rebel Time Lord. The only hint of eccentric accessory is an awesome red lining. He'll never let anyone forget how silly his past wardrobe could be.

    Maybe he shouldn't be so smug, he does look a bit magician:

    Remember when Doctor's 10 and 11 were obsessed with saving everyone? I wonder how they feel about 12.

    When they said there'd be no flirting this season, what they meant was "He'll just flirt like a ten-year-old". Good thing Rose isn't there:

    All the Doctor needs to prove he's still awesome, is a long monologue about Mankind's tenacity during space travel. Indomitable!
