He had very little respect for human life especially non-British, His fixation with saving the British Empire above ending the wars quickly etc.
The Doctor historically doesn't get along with people like that

Or indeed the 4th Doctor adventure, The Invisible Enemy :)
@twoheartsonemind There was a lot of reasons I didn't like it, The paradigm Daleks, The Spitfires in space etc. but it was the portrayal of Churchill that annoyed me the most. It's just too hard to imagine the Doctor being friends with Churchill .
and he did a brilliant job, in fact I thought he was very creepy:)

@9101112 I remember feeling the same way when my favorite Doctor left but it didn't take long for me to move on and accept the newer Doctors one and all. Also the same as you regarding Clara, I feel I know her a bit better and understand her idiosyncrasies :)

"It's covered with lines, but I didn’t do the frowning. Who frowned me
this face?" And he wonders, "Why this one? Why did I chose this face?
It’s like I’m trying to tell myself something. Like I’m trying to make a
point. But what’s so important that I can’t just tell myself what I'm
This has to be one of my favorite lines from Doctor Who, Absolutely wonderful :)

Looking forward to it, Marks scripts can either be great fun or quite dire. Also his version of history can be silly bordering on ridiculous, Victory of the Daleks for example

@XanderH I'm from Australia and I don't struggle too much with the accent just the poor sound. The music and effects are so loud I miss quite a bit of the dialogue. The Americans will cope like the rest of us, They will probably have subtitles, I've even seen that with Australian movies :)

It's not the only time they have struggled with scale. I The Empty Child the bombers over London were flying at about 500ft instead 15000ft which I found a bit silly :)

Thanks for the lecture but no thanks. Kissing in Doctor Who shouldn't even happen, There's enough soapy dribble on TV without this show going down that path. I find the whole thing even becoming an issue quite strange as I haven't come across any homophobic comments yet

@Doctor What @Polyphase Yes and yes. It was much closer to the Classic style. The characters had more to sink their teeth into and Peter himself was amazing. I saw him say in an interview that "I know the Doctor" and I believe him.
@ar2261 BBC America has commercials? I feel sorry for you guys, We are lucky in Australia that our ABC has no ads. Thankyou ABC :)

@The Lazy Cat The Doctor: Why does this thing remind me of souffles
Clara: Souffles? What?
@Merganman4 You know the way she called the Doctor her boyfriend was very reminiscent of the way Idris behaved and the heaven really did look like the cloister room. Doesn't make sense though :)
I have to say that it's seems like Moffat has tried to address some complaints about Clara's character. Firstly she gets alot great scenes in this episode particularly when the Doctor traps her with the clockwork droids, Absolutely brilliant
"Hello, hello, rubbish robots from the dawn of time!"
"Five-foot-one and crying. You never stood a chance." — The Doctor
Also the restaurant scene where they argue about who put the ad in the paper is a classic piece of dialogue and the Doctor states she is the egomaniac, great stuff
"That sort of person would be an egomaniac, needy game-player." — The Doctor, about Clara

@Ivegotkidneys is in a Dalek Yes when he is trying to remember what seems familiar about the SS Mary Antoinette. There is also the lovely end when he says Coffee or Chips and he says he's got no money referencing my other favorite new Who Doctor. Interestingly Clara goes for coffee unlike Rose :)

I thought they were better in this than any other appearance. We actually got a bit more character background which to me adds a great deal to the fullness of the story. I could gone without the kissing as I think a martial arts expert could easily hold her breath.

After watching it a second time it was pretty obvious to me that he committed suicide, Atleast that seem to be the Doctors intentions.
The scene with the Doctor offering a drink to the half face was very James Bond and there are so many great lines
"I could use it to blow this whole room if I see one thing I don't like, and that includes karaoke and mimes." — The Doctor
6 days, 14 hours ago on Whodunnit? The Fate of the Half-Face Man
OK I watched it again last night and I enjoyed it even more. I was alone so could really turn up the TV and actually hear what was going on. Peter did an amazing job of making the role his own. His controlled lunacy was absolutely brilliant and the line delivery was almost perfect, I found myself giggling quite a bit which hasn't happened since Tom was in the Tardis.
Current affairs even got a mention in one particularly hilarious scene
"Look at these eyebrows! They're attack eyebrows. You could take bottle
tops off with these. They’re cross. Crosser than the rest of my face.
They’re independently cross! They probably want to cede from the rest of
my face and set up their own independent state of eyebrows. I am
Scottish, I’m Scottish!"
Fantastic and for the first time ever an episde of new Who gets 10/10

The ratings for Australia are pretty typical, It's just not that popular here. Going by this a lot of people don't watch the ABC at all and it annoys me that rubbish reality shows are more popular.
1. The Block Glasshouse (Nine) - 1.641 million
2. 60 Minutes (Nine) - 1.259 million
3. Nine News (Nine) - 1.255 million
4. Seven News (Seven) - 1.176 million
5. The X Factor (Seven) - 1.115 million
6. Sunday Night (Seven) - 888,000
7. ABC News (ABC1) - 834,000
8. Anzac Girls (ABC1) - 758,000
9. Doctor Who (ABC1) - 710,000
10. Castle (Seven) - 493,000
@MovieversalFilm I agree that The War Doctor cannot be ignored :)
@thatscottishguy I would say he has to tone it down a bit for the American audience. I'm from Australia and although his accent didn't seem too strong I still couldn't understand a lot of it but I think most of that is because of the rubbish recording.

@TheNightmareChild is NOT a control freak! I'm not sure it's too left field as Steven Moffat has teased that a “major foe” will be back in Series 8. Remember the Teaser trailer where the familiar voice says "I see into your soul, Doctor"
Anyeay I hope i'm wrong :)
@Scootersfood Yes I'm hoping I catch more of it 2nd time around :)
@Skylord Maldon Oh yes the theme music was terrible and I can't imagine it growing on me. It reminds me of the bad theme from the 7th Doctors era.
I didn't think it was a major problem but just unnecessary :)

I didn't think the phonecall was necessary, It sort of makes you think Clara isn't as smart as she is supposed to be. If anyone understood regeneration it should be her and she shouldn't have reacted like Rose.

I'm going to watch it again before I rate it. My first reaction was disapointment because I couldn't hear the dialogue. Even when I turn the TV up very loud I still couldn't make out what they were whispering with all the background noise :(

I wasn't a fan of the way he kept bringing Rory back to life, I suppose when you think about it he brings just about everyone back to life eventually. It's good that he see that there can be problems with that. Really does sound like a return to the Classic era when literally everyone dies

By far my favorite series opener. Donna has been the best companion of the new series and the best actor by a long way. She even managed to drag Davids performances up to her level and the dynamic between the two of them was wonderful.
