Yeah the music took a lot from the sixties theme. not sure about the modern under current though. It'll probably be a grower.

What surprised me a bit was we had a body count. People actually died. The predator actually killed people on screen.

I feared it may be very kid friendly but it wasn't.

Same, i thought it would probably be quite scary for a kid, mercilessly killing off a few sympathetic characters. (the old crane site guard etc..)
Was quite tense at points.
Jodie seems to show a lot of energy and enthusiasm in the role.

I thought it looked really good. It's been filmed differently this series using cinemascope lenses and i did feel it seemed more cinematic.

Finished it. Excellent well shot and looks really nice and as mentioned nice and dark and Chibnall is not afraid to kill characters off, unlike Moffit ,heres hoping the rest of the series lives up to the pilot. I wonder how long it's going to take to find the tardis ,will it be quick or will it take most of the series , if it does will it be a good or bad thing.

8.2m viewers is good in today's standards but what about the other viewers who will watch it later on catch up etc they can't figure that one out, they might have been watching another channel or out. People always say well its not good considering so and so got 22m viewers in 1985 but that's because we had very little channels in them days now we literally have hundreds, there is no need to be sat in watching now when its on because there so many ways to watch it if you miss it , online, recorded , catch up or when its repeated probably during the week etc, then it was simple if you didn't watch or record it you missed it .

i felt the opening episode was a bit 'same as same as' the Capaldi era. the story was a derivative Predator-lite scenario, the new companion characters were all over-played, Jodie was dialled up to 11 (hopefully that will change once the re-generation is complete), the changes in tone - e.g. cheery knockabout to killing off nice Grandads for no reason - was jarring, the guy playing the alien's target was hopelessly useless as an actor, and my usual complaint about nu-who is it all seems unnecessarily rushed.

i wish the writers would understand we don't need a flippant remark every two minutes to keep us interested and that it doesn't have to be so lightweight to keep a family audience. also the best stories are the ones where the Doctor doesn't always think he/she will win.

hopefully things will improve as the new writers and actors settle in. the biggest plus point for me is that the incidental music has improved out of sight of the last series.
