Tonight Doctor Who fans will be treated to a an old fashioned thriller of an episode. We haven’t had any scary episodes lately that haven’t featured the Angels or Cybermen, so this is a treat.
I would love to know what your thoughts are on Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. You know from earlier posts that I think he’s fantastic.
But, please, tell me what you think! Are you enjoying the Capaldi Era of Doctor Who?
I love Peter Capaldi! His Doctor is quiet, contemplative and has just enough bite to him to be fun to watch and not annoying. The Twelfth Doctor’s relationship and dynamic with Clara is so interesting; it’s not teacher-mentor as many had expected, but more like they are partners. So far, I’m loving this series. It’s so good to have Doctor Who back on our television screens.
By the way, love the blog.
Thanks for your comment and compliment! I totally agree with you about this season and I find the Doctor/Clara dynamic fun to watch. “Listen” was an amazing episode!!
I’m looking forward to seeing the new doctor. As I live in America, I’ll have to wait for the DVD’s to be released or the new episodes to magically appear on Netflix.
I’m also in America 🙂 You can see the new episodes on BBC America or you can buy episodes on Amazon/Barnes and Noble.
Thanks for the heads-up! I haven’t kept up with Doctor Who since season 701, but yeah, I 702 on Amazon now along with 800. Things just haven’t been the same since Tom Baker but I have definitely enjoyed many of the episodes, particularly the ones with David Tennant. I don’t receive BBC America and presently don’t have a device to stream Amazon video to, but that just means I have something to look forward to. 🙂 Thanks again. 🙂
I have a streaming mechanism again, and have seen the first three episodes from season 7 part 2!
I liked Matt Smith’s Doctor as soon as the Ponds left and Clara started. Season 8 has been interesting.
I do like Capaldi as the Doctor whoever I am getting a bit tired of Moffat’s Scottish agenda. I have nothing against the Scots (I’m Welsh and I said the same thing about RTD and his Welsh agenda) but Moffat takes it to a whole new level. Everyone has to have Scottish routes. He’s done it in Tin Tin and Sherlock too. I bet Santa Clause turns out to be Scottish in some way.
Clara’s pretty cool, yeah. I liked Amelia too, and Rory had his moments.
One thing I miss from the “classic” Dr. Who: Nowadays it seems like a disproportionate number of their adventures take place on Earth. In the old days, they’d wind up on a alien spaceship, alien space station, or alien world. It added to the uniqueness of the show and carried me further away. As I mentioned though, I still enjoy the new series. 🙂 Did you catch the classics? Tom Baker was my “first” doctor.
I’m so far off-topic… I’ll give some thoughts on Capaldi when I get to him.
I haven’t watched many of the classics, unless I catch them on BBC America marathons. For the most part, I’m a modern DW fan. (Though I’m making a Tom Baker scarf as a Christmas present for a friend…but don’t tell her 🙂 )
