 Tennant also had the same problem. Authoritative and dynamic yes, but the sort of person you wouldn't be surprised to meet at a party in Islington.

 

 

Although I'd intended here to suggest that Tennant's Doctor comes across as a vaguely trendy and vaguely sophisticated human and not at all strange or alien, I remembered this afternoon that, in The Hitch-hiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Trillian meets Zaphod at a party in Islington :o

Into the Dalek was much, much better!  Probably the best NuWho Dalek story.

 

Nice dark turn from Capaldi, still more for Coleman to do.... and I wonder if Mr Pink is going to cause her death at the end of the series.  "He's a bit of a ladykiller" was a Moffat-type hint, I think.....

Considering no companion has actually "died" in the new series, I think it's probably time. 

 

I did like our little tease with the new companion (hope I'm not spoiling anything for anyone).

The girl from Fresh Meat?  I like her.

No, according to my daughter it was the guy teacher that Clara had the date with.

...but where did the idea that we were getting a sneak peek at the new companion come from?

 

I told my wife I had heard about it somewhere.... but the more I think about it... it was SC's post above that put the idea in my mind.

The Robin Hood episode was kind of lame. I didn't really see a lot of growth or story arc there.... besides the short reference to the 'promised land'.

Kind of cool that the Tardis can heal itself.

I thought it was good fun in a silly sort of way.

 

Word is that it gets a lot darker from here on in.

Maybe Moffat did that to show us that the old guy can be just as energetic and funny as his predecessors.... Perhaps the last run before the coming darkness...

I liked the episode. Didn't really move the story along (as far as we know). But again with some kind of machine things, maybe some kind of connection to the premiere episode. 

 

Of course, it could be just a throw away silly episode, which is also fine.

Well, that was a lot more interesting.

 

I wish we could get past this Impossible Girl crap.

 

Moffat's visualisation of the end of the universe was rather poor - there was an intact planet and a light source.  He's not good at proper hard SF - better in Sapphire and Steel territory.

 

Was there a presence in the TARDIS, or did the Doc write on the blackboard and forget?  Was there a monster on the bed, or a kid playing a trick?  Was there something outside the TARDIS, or differential pressure equalising?

 

Why did the cloister bell ring?

 

More questions than answers, but I liked the episode.  Good spooky stuff.  We've already had two-to-three good stories out of four so that already makes it better than Smith's final season.

I think the thing on the bed was kid Doctor. I'm sure we'll find out eventually. 

 

I liked the whole "barn" tie in from the 50th, my daughter and I both gasped at that part. 

 

One thing I haven't seen posted online yet is about the two adults that came to the barn to check on kid Doctor. One of them sounded like Jenny. Did nobody else pick up on that? 

 

Also, I looked for Clara under my bed, sadly she wasn't there. :(

Dr. Who hasn't been very "hard sci fi" for decades, if ever.


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Oh.  I try and blank those people out.  Though the comedy Sontaran is funny on occasions.

Have a look at Pertwee and the first three seasons of Tom Baker.

How far back have YOU watched?  I found the whole thing's beginning Dr.s quite fanciful(i.e. 'Hard Sci-Fi') for the time they were on the air.  I watched them when my daughter brought everything available at the time (2010). :shrug:

"Fanciful" and "hard sci fi" are not, I beleive, synonymous.
