Okay, okay, firstly: yes, I know the real problem is Moffat, not Matt, and the real change in direction I want the show to take can't happen until Moffat steps down.
BUT... I'm tired of Eleven. Matt's a good actor, he's talented, and he gave his all to the role, but after the Pond story dragged on so long and s7 took eons, the prospect of having Eleven through s8, which will surely run into 2015, was just not something I was up for.
So I am excited by this, and excited to see Clara with Twelve, and excited for a little bit more life to be breathed into the show.
You may now begin the prayer circles that Moffat will step down at the end of s8.
