He promised his Doctor will be ‘less user-friendly’ and a ‘little darker’.
However yesterday, just hours after Peter Capaldi finally made his debut as the 12th Doctor, many fans questioned whether the timelord was now too scary for their children to enjoy.
A tweeter called Northsea_view said the show was ‘still scary’ and asked: ‘Shouldn’t it be on after the watershed? It disturbs children’, while Andy Piper complemented the ‘fantastic performances’ of Capaldi and co-star Jenna Coleman, who plays sidekick Clara Oswald, describing the show as ‘funny, scary and exciting’.
Vaughan Anscombe tweeted ‘#drwho clock work robots still scary just ask my daughter. She’s behind the sofa’, while a user called babesaurus wrote: ‘I liked it but I think it’s too scary for children. Anyone have thoughts?’ (UK Daily Mail)
