What did every one make of the Doctor Who Season Premier???
I really wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Capaldi, but I think I’m really going to like him.
I think it’s such a fresh take on The Doctor compared to the last few seasons, that he’s different enough to enjoy in his own right. I can’t lie, I miss 11, and I was begrudged to see him go. But then, I was begrudged to see David Tennant go and Matt Smith start, but I quickly loved him just as much – likewise when Tennant replaced Eccleston. I still continue to miss various aspects of the previous, but I find new love for the new doctor, and I think Capaldi will earn his place there too.
I was really pleased to see some familiar faces, like a confirmation from Moffat that not everything has changed. And lordy, that cameo damn near broke my heart!! I did find one thing (I won’t mention it yet to avoid spoilers, but the first problem London encounters…) maybe a little silly. But hey, I was so happy to have the new episode, I can forgive them!
I felt Clara’s personality really come out well, you saw her struggle with the unfamiliarity of this stranger replacing someone so special to her. There were some truly touching moments, and I think (hope!) they’re going to develop a lovely relationship, different to the ones we’ve seen since the Doctor Who comeback began.
With an older Doctor, a different tyoe of relationship, and a ‘darker tone,’ I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for us!
