The show is moving into a new golden age!
I have to say for half an hour after the opening credits i hated it.

Then came the newspaper ad and the story kicked into gear. Great to see more of the Clockwork Robots, i loved them in The Girl in the Fireplace.

The last ten minutes were special. A fantastic touch having Smith there to persuade Clara and the viewers that this was the Doctor and we'd all get used to him. Alot more subtle than have him strangle Clara then declare "I'm the Doctor whether you like it or not".

Jenna was terrific, probably her best performance, look forward to more from her.

Finally, i loved the S&M Mary Poppins, hope she returns before the two part finale.

As for Peter Capaldi, he'll be just fine.

What the hell have they done with that theme tune? It sounds like a reject from McCoys time! Bloody awful! As for the episode itself......hmmm!

Hate the fact they seem to be explaining Capaldi's appearance in the Pompeii episode - they never felt the need to do something that silly with Colin Baker. Enjoyed the episode as a whole though, a promising start.

I felt a bit like Demdike did, I was pretty much disappointed with the first half hour or so, but then it kicked in and they added some new depth into the regeneration principle (which I hope they will not merss up ) and it became an excellent episode - as for Pete: He'll do fine, he may not have given me the WOW impact that Matt gave me, but he is really giving the role a good touch and you can sense that he enjoys it and that is what it needs...

I am only puzzled about his first appearance, why all the confusion and why was it gone completely after that? And that Scottish thing may be funny, but since when did accents change with Regeneration? Maybe a side effect of the BRP (Bonus Regeneration Package)

The half head robot was an excellent effect, it looked good on the big cinema screen! The dino was ok...

Not keen on the Dr Doolittle bit.
Liked when Drax threw the paper at Clara.

I reserve the right to severely moan until next weeks......


.....and you call that a theme tune???





Watched Dr Who & The Daleks (with comm) last night.
Watching Delta & The Bannermen tonight.

I see The Ice Warriors is going cheap on Amazon just now btw....

**SLIGHT SPOILER**

There is a lot of speculation that the strange woman, who was seen at the end of 'Deep Breath', is a female regeneration of The Master

This seems to be all down to the fact that her name is 'Missy', which is a shortened form of 'Mistress', which is the female form of 'Master'!!!

It'll all be a red herring from Moffat no doubt. She seemed to be doing an impersonation of Simm's Master i thought.

That's the other rumour going round.

If i was to hazard a guess i think she's a new character altogether, or perhaps a screwed up version of Clara stuck in the timeline of the Doctor. That garden looked very much like the one from The Girl who Waited.

I also think the advert for the impossible girl was a big clue.

Again, a lot of people are saying that the inside of The Garden looks just like the inside of The TARDIS!

A mate of mine said she was the TARDIS.
