The new Doctor Who
A fascinating episode: some nice interplay, some interesting back references and a nice touch that even the dumbest viewer worked out where the Doctor had seen the villain before, before the Doctor did.
As for Peter Capaldi, he may be fine but following Matt Smith is a tall order. Will he be a Tom Baker following Jon Pertwee (in other words a triumph) or a Peter Davison following Tom Baker (in other words a disappointment). I suppose in a triumph of timey wimeyness, he could be a Matt Smith replacing David Tennant (could we be that lucky again?
But then again, and this might stop me watching the new series, he could be Patrick Troughton replacing William Hartnell (oh God no...)
Time will tell and now to hit the Doctor Who forums... Or shall I wait until after the Bank Holiday weekend?
