Because I'm Batman!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like the rise of the anti-hero in pop-culture, (think of The Rock, Stone Cold, The Dark Knight, Hell Boy, The Punisher, or a cursing, abrasive, self-focused rough-neck pulled into performing virtuous acts, with these characters replacing both the traditional view of & the equally rigid structure, role, and qualities found during the the golden age of heroes & villains as the central character held in regard by society and their stories, and oral traditions.
The antiheroes embody qualities of both hero and villain, bringing a new emotional investment with the characters which traditional hero/villain characters would never be able to achieve under their rigid codes.
The Anti-hero embodies the Gray choices real individuals and societies struggle with, being naturally bound in the human condition, in contrast to the clear cut, black & white choices & decisions, guided by the clearly defined rigid moral boundaries of what is Right & just, or Wrong & immoral, in the actions and motive's behind the traditional hero/villain characters.
While we still hold traditional hero and villain characters in high regard, it is the anti-hero who is influencing today's social and cultural acceptance to our changing values and norms of what constitutes what is acceptable, tolerable, Right, Wrong or Indifferent. From the commonality and acceptance of cursing, to making life & death moral decisions when faced at a life changing cross road. For the antiheroes, everything does not resolve perfect and consequence free. They will experience some form of loss or hardships, which define their character, resulting in their sometimes questionable choices when faced with future experiences.
While we know and accept "the doctor always lies", being a refined, yet eccentric form of an antihero character in his own right, could Capaldi bring The Doctor a deeper, more real, and relatable edginess, so often related to the more modern antiheroes, invoking these qualities through a stronger direction than previous doctors have? Or will he break his public, edgy stereotype, bringing us something totally unexpected, and out of left field during in his portrayal of The Doctor, showing his dedication to his craft, to his character roles, and to the beloved institution who's Coat of Arms is that beloved Little Blue Box (that's bigger on the inside)
Only time and patience will provide the answers, my friends.....but I'm sure Capaldi will do The Doctor justice, drawing in the viewers who are in shock, grieving from the recent loss of "their Doctor", but whatever direction Capaldi invokes during his portrayal of The Doctor, I'm sure it will be in his own truly unique way, just as every Doctor before him has done. Following the story, but owning the character, making his version truly one of a kind.
