    This is a pretty lively Whovian world.... Clara is the sunshine to the Doctor's sadness, and Coleman makes her shine.

    Things progress with a superb pace in the premiere--something that many in season 8 failed to do--and set the tone for a far more successful set of episodes than those we saw in 2014.

    Best series since series 4. Capaldi is just FANTASTIC! Easily one of the best actors anywhere on TV, just watch The Witch's Familiar, TheBest series since series 4. Capaldi is just FANTASTIC! Easily one of the best actors anywhere on TV, just watch The Witch's Familiar, The Zygon Inversion, Face the Raven, or Heaven Sent to be wowed. All episodes were fun, engaging, and looked stunning. The only problem was Sleep no More, which of course, was written by Mark Gatiss. He is a very talented writer, but his scripts have been hit and miss for me. At least the acting was good, but the script was confusing, and the directing was not as good as other episodes. I'd give Sleep No More a 3/10, but at least they tried something new.
    All other episodes were 9/10 or 10/10 for me. Incredible characterization, acting, directing, and scripts for all the series.

    Awesome! 10/10 for series 9

The ideas are still marvelous, the acting is never boring and blended and there is always enough stuff to mindf*ck you until the episode end. All we need, forever, is some nice, pleasant faces to make everything shine and attach ourselves to everyone. Nothing bad to say, for now. Spoilers are coming... Expand

I am getting there, and liking him better but Eccleston was my first Doctor - made me love the show. I loved Tenant and Smith. Capaldi isn't there yet. I don't like all the two parters. I am not happy at the moment with last night's show. I am happy though for anything that gets me further away from that Sleep No More episode - worst writing in the history of Doctor Who. Best comment I read about that disgusting episode was that it would be followed by a monster created from used kleenexes and snot. ew. So I am waiting to see how this episode will be completed next week - making this a three parter. Expand
