While the end of a Doctor Who era came to a culmination recently, there is plenty to be excited about for the upcoming episodes. The newest episodes are going to have a “classic” feel to the series, confirmed by the episodes’ director, Ben Wheatley. Some may be familiar with director Ben Wheatley, with his work on, A Field In England and Kill List, he is set to direct the first two episodes of the series, which will usher in a new period for the Doctor and his fans. Peter Capaldi is tasked with replacing Matt Smith, or as Whovians know him: the Eleventh Doctor. The director recently opened up with io9 about where he plans to take the show. “To have a unity that runs eight years... it's pretty crazy," he said. "It seems to me the episodes that we're doing now seem more like classic Who." On the new Doctor, Capaldi, he added: "He's so good. You look at his career and you look at his performances... they are all so brilliant, and all so different as well. It was a lucky break for me, I think." Speaking of the newbie, Capaldi is recognized for his work as Malcom Tucker: the boisterous, foulmouthed spin doctor from The Thick Of It. This is going to be his very first appearance in Doctor Who; his confidant on the show, Clara (Jenna Coleman) recently talked about what it was going to be like working with him. “He's going to be so different to Matt [Smith]. It will be a different show next year." While the changes on Doctor Who are going to take some time to get used to, I’m sure all Whovians are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new Doctor.
