A few hours ago I was sitting in a cinema waiting for the first episode of the new season of Dr Who to begin and now that it is over I have to say Peter Capaldi does a really great job as the Doctor.
I’m going to try not to spoil much but I wanted to share my thoughts on the episode.
New Doctors normally need to grow on me before I like them, but Peter Capaldi was great right from the offset. He was quirky, fun and gave the sense that mystery that makes the Doctor interesting.
I’m not going to go into the details of the plot but it was a FANTASTIC idea to include the Paternoster Gang
I love these guys, they had some of the best scenes in the last season and I hope they show up again in this season.
This episode had a lot more of Vastra and Jenny’s relationship, which is something I’ve been waiting for since it’s not really been shown, I mean they are constantly telling us that they are married but we’ve seen very little of the verbal and body language indications that let us know two people are in a relationship. In fact they rarely spoke to each other about anything other than the Doctor.
In this episode we got silly arguments, admiration of Jenny, and even a kiss.
This combined with Capaldi’s excellent portrayal of the Doctor has made me extremely excited for this season and I can’t wait for next week!
Have a Deadly Day!
