Never dreamt about Doctor Who before, would be nice. I'll be able to get to sleep for sure, but it still feels like Christmas. Damn the BBC for hyping this series up so much. I'm more excited than ever.

But you won't watch past Episode 1, so what does it matter? :P

However, its positive someone who hasn't watched the series is aware of the hype around this series. It's sure to be one of the biggest and best one's yet.

Who says I won't watch past Episode 1?  If I enjoy it then I might well watch some more.  Also I can hardly be unaware of the hype given that it's been screaming at me from the BBC for days now.

Best line in "Who" was, "Shut up, I'm talking to the horse."

 lmao  I loved that line too BBH, but I felt very sad when the Doctor was translating what the Dinosaur was saying and when he was burnt to death I wanted to cry!  Rolling Eyes I thought Capaldi made a great Doctor and the whole episode was good fun! Extremely Doctor WHOish!  w00t I might watch it again, but only if I feel like a laugh and there's nothing better on the box!  Wink

Thank goodness I never got that far!  I and a friend watched half an hour.  Couldn't make sense of what was happening as it seemed like a lot of bizarre disjointed episodes, including the mixing of 'normal' humans and rather farcical 'non-humans'.  Thought Capaldi was a bit of a ham (although maybe this was intentional?) and felt that he was just making a fool of the Scots and so did my friend (who's English).  Also as one critic said - why did he feel it necessary, on at least five occasions, to labour the point that he was Scottish when his alone accent was enough? 

I'm glad though for the sake of all Who fans that the episode lived up to its hype, so hopefully the rest of the series will do the same.

My thoughts....

1) MOFFAT IS AN F'ING GENIUS. Capaldi is already on course to surpass all competition as the greatest Doctor of all time. Finally someone who can mix darkness and comedy well, something I thought Smith lacked incredibly.

1 (Part 2)) Capaldi is so badass and dark, he definitely pushed the droid to his death.

2) Clara showing herself off to be a far better character than in Series 7. Far more developed and has more personality, her prickly nature in the episode was quite something

3) Strax.

4) Loved the comparisons between the Doctor and the dinosaur, both feeling alone and out of place. Unfortunately it didn't last long as the dinosaur was burnt to death.

5) The sinister Clockwork droids. Finally a rehash of a previous monster that was better than the original. No offence meant to the Silurians in Series 5.

6) Who the hell is Missy?

Also, isn't the new title sequence just awesome!

Lines of the episode:

Vastra to detective: I find your grasp of biology troubling.

Strax to Clara: The Doctor will always come looking for his box, and when he does we shall melt him with acid.

Capaldi to the dinosaur: Hello my ladddy friend!

Capaldi to Clara: You're Handles, the small head thing. You've really let yourself go.

and so much more, including Clara's rant at Vastra, Capaldi and the half faced mans final encounter and Strax.

Also despite some backlash, I found someone else's cameo to be rather necessary at the end.

^ Thank you Connor.  I guess my friend and I were just so out of tune with Dr Who, neither of us having watched it for at least thirty years, that we just didn't 'get it' from the start and so gave up on it pretty quickly because we just found it confusing and irritating.

Things could take an unfortunate turn for Capaldi and Doctor Who, it peaked at 7 million viewers on Saturday, 7% down from Matt's debut The Eleventh Hour.

Now Peter's come out and admitted he found filming the most difficult thing he's ever done because he missed his wife and daughter too much, but still maintains it's a childhood dream come true.

I feel a bit of Bill Hartnell coming on here. Although Hartnell and Capaldi were in completely different situations, with Hartnell being a very ill man during the later stages of his time as Doctor Who, he was also extremely exhausted. I think Capaldi might be feeling it too, being the same age as Bill when he started, and with filming being far more strenuous than it was in the 60's. I hope not, but I think 2015 could be Capaldi's second and last series. But after his performance on Saturday, I really truly pray to God it isn't. Fantastic Doctor.

Finished first season of ABC's Resurrection and glad to say it has been renewed for a second. It's incredibly emotional so if you watch it preferably have someone you love with you or who you can have a chat with after Smile




Just finished this last night. Really good viewing and emotional as you say. Pleased it's been renewed and is not ending on a cliffhanger with everything unexplained just yet.
