Hartnell regenerated in the Tenth Planet, the thread regenerated (almost) on the 100th Page. Makes sense.

It's a shame that Tenth Planet is probably the most boring regeneration of them all.

Well okay aside from that pseudo-regeneration in Time and the Rani. That was complete horseshit.

Be fair, it was the first one ever, and that the time they never expected it to becomes such an iconic thing, it was just a way to deal with Hartnell's ill health but carry the show on.

And although it's nice to have a fresh new thread, it's a little sad as well. That last one had been going since Rob started it in 2009!

As excited as I and my daughter are for this, I bet we have to wait until tomorrow or Monday to catch it, because the wife is not a fan.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

This airs at 5am local time, so I'll watch it as soon as I wake up. This will be my first season of watching Dr Who as it airs, since The Day of the Doctor was my first episode.

Jordan is actually DT's tax advisor. He just happens to do their taxes on stage, that's why he has that iPad there.

As expected the Facebook people said in order of frequency: "boring", "love david tennant", "bring back russel t davis", "want matt smith".

Oh, you.  :heart

Fab episode! Really liking Capaldi already, and I like the way they are hinting at a slightly darker side to his personality.

I also loved the reference back to the "woman in the shop" from the Bells of St. John. I've wondered that a number of times, and at some point recently remembered it again and wondered if they'd ever address it. Should have known to trust Moffat more. :lol

Well, at this point the woman in the shop has to be the promised land woman. I wonder who that might be, and what role she might have. Major one, of course, only major plot roles are introduced in the first episode.

So, people, the question is... How long till people will start claiming she's really the Rani?  :lol

Well, I'm kinda ready to bet my shoes against the possibility. I would certainly like a new threat better. IF she is a foe and not a friend, something I am not even sure of.

I don't watch DW very often but that was not bad .

Already prefer Capaldi to Smith though.

Every time I see an episode - it always has a life or death super emotional scene in it. Dos that happen in *every* episode ? :lol

That's been bugging me the entire time! I'm glad they're addressing that. And it also looks like they're going to address Capaldi's two appearances in Dr Who / Torchwood, with the mention of his face to the hobo. This episode included a lot of story threads, both existing and new ones. It sets up an exciting start to the season.

Quite a good episode. The ties to The Girl in the Fireplace were a nice touch, but the dinosaur felt like it was mostly there for a cool trailer, since it didn't last long. Clara had a good part in this episode, and I like how they spent time dealing with Clara's emotions after the regeneration.

I really like Capaldi so far. I still have trouble understanding some of his lines. I guess I'm not fluent in Scottish mumble. He seems a bit more blunt and mean, but still with a good sense of humour. Great combo. As with every Doctor, there will be elements I miss from the previous Doctor, along with new elements that I'll miss once this Doctor is gone. I can already see those new elements developing that I'm going to enjoy from Capaldi's Doctor. His conversation with the hobo about his mean looking face and Scottish accent was hilarious, and I'm glad they're addressing these differences, since it is a departure from the newer Doctors.

After one episode I obviously couldn't say I like him as much as Tennant or Smith, but I already like him a lot more than Eccelston, and I can tell he's going to be a great Doctor in his own right. Bring on the rest of the season! :tup

Fuckin brilliant. This is definitely going to be the season to get me fully on-board with the Doc. I love Capaldi in the few things I've seen him in and he's always been one of those actors that I really like but rarely see. Just the same, I've always only kind of been interested in the series, but god damn it all, I COULD NOT get pass the cheese-factor and the effects; on top of that, no one on the show made me want to watch it enough. I enjoyed the couple episodes I saw of Smith, and I really do like him, but it couldn't overrule the other factors for me. Now, with technology the way it is, and the actor being of fine choice, I'm on board. I really enjoyed this episode despite it being a bit flat. I'm one that doesn't judge a show by it's pilot though.

I know little to nothing about Doctor Who as a whole, but I'm ready to jump into it and hopefully I'll slowly open up to past seasons, but somehow I doubt it. I'd just love to dive in now and hopefully they'll get better and better for me. But yeah, Capaldi FTW. When I was watching Smith, I liked how quirky the Doctor was and apparently that's a staple of the character, but (OF COURSE) I'm the type that'd love a dark quirkiness...something on the fringe, that's funny, but also...he could obliterate you at any moment. Capaldi has that in spades and I FOOKIN' LOVE IT.

In celebration of the fantastic new Doctor, and keeping in line with my tradition of pixeling the Doctor, a portrait I just made!



I thought the episode was fantastic. Capaldi is a brilliant Doctor, and he brings a new gravitas to the role that really fits in the progression of recent events. I loved the callback to The Girl in the Fireplace, and the clockwork droids, while serving as a background element to character development and the "new Doctor" storyline, were still fantastic in their own right, and the ambiguity over the demise of the leader robot at the end was great.

Some people have complained about the pace-- I find that hilarious, because the same people were complaining it was too fast last series. The pace in this episode left room to breathe, imo, and I thought that worked well in the context of things. Some other notes-- the episode had some choice lines, very humorous at times, while it felt serious and dramatic at other points. The cameo from Smith was great, and not overdone nor cheesy, and it served as a way to assure new viewers that while this Doctor may be a bit rugged around the edges, that he is still the Doctor we know and love.

I'm looking forward to the overarching storyline, too. Everything is in place for what may be the best season of Doctor Who yet!

I didn't have a problem with the pacing either. The episode went by pretty quickly, and all of the slower talking scenes were quite necessary for the characters to deal with the regeneration and the episode story. Had they rushed it along, you would have missed out on a lot of that, and the episode would have become a bit too familiar, and people would have criticized it for lacking drama. You can't please everyone!
And let's face it, a lot of people will just dump shit on whatever Moffat does.

As the season goes along, I think more and more of that episode will become relevant and important.

Amazing. Already like Capaldi better than Matt Smith, and I loved Smith.

Clara is a great companion now.

I was cracking up at 12 going "Are you being cross with me?" at the restaurant. I already love how he will say something and not care and people react to it but he has already moved on.
