@PaddyB @supermoff Yes that was beautifully done. I really does give you the impression of an omnipotent powerful figure enjoying Heaven and looking down at the mere squibble the Doctor has gotten himself in.

@Mark McCullough @JackArtaganMackenna I think the tonal shift worked in it's favour. The tense action stopped for this tranquil moment in heaven with a haunting choir piece, and then back to the action, it made Heaven seem very special. That was one of the most beautiful parts.

This is a solid 8/10. I adored just how high quality this production looked from start to finish. It was beautiful. And yet again furthering that darker tone. People are finally dying! And there are consequences. Series eight is proving to be a very enjoyable, solid run. Also, looks like the new action theme was the one that played when the Doctor grabbed Clara's hand in Deep Breath, and I am soooo happy. It is such a nice little tune! The Strange Strange Creatures of 2014.

@Chris502 Yep that was shocking.
@StephenAHayes Really? I never noticed any poor CGI. The CGI was top notch!
Capaldi is an absolute blast to watch. I almost shed a tear when he said about visiting Skaro all those years ago and realizing who he was. Not the daleks.
@supermoff @Chris502 Yep. That one made me laugh and it really shouldn't have. Twelve is just...fantastic. He is so ridiculously rude!
@Ivegotkidneys is in a Dalek I just felt terrible for Clara.
@The Lazy Cat All we needed was for the Doctor to say to Clara "Deja vu?" Sad missed opportunity.
@Regenerated Catterson I fail to see any connection what-so-ever with Planet of the Dead. Please enlighten me! Dalek, The Beast Below and the Parting of the Ways I can see. Oh hold on, the grapples? Sliding up and down ropes?

@Gustaff I really don't see the problem with the slap! Clara thought they were going to die there and the Doctor didn't even seem to care, he was too busy being happy about being right. That was the most deserved slap in the show to date and it fits extremely well into the story.

After rewatching this episode I am shocked at how solid it is. It is great throughout. Capaldi's portrayal of the Doctor is both fresh and interesting and he is fantastic at delivering speeches! I hope we see more! I also love the fact at how dangerous the show has become again. People are dying, people are sacrificing themselves and the Doctor cannot save everyone. This series really harkens back to series 3/4 when those aspects were very prominent. Such a fantastic start.
I'm quite happy with that final figure. The Eleventh Hour got 10 million and this is close enough to make me happy. (Considering the natural drop over program's life time plus the changes in the television watching world.)

Why on earth did the BBC put Doctor Who against XFactor. :(

@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey I thought I was going to hate Danny. He just had that sort of vibe, that he was going to be very fake, very annoying and very stupid. I'm glad to say I'm very pleasantly wrong.

@Invictus12 I think the beginning could have been five minutes shorter, but apart from that I thought the pacing was perfect.
@RoastNewt That really was a beautiful moment. Because I could "feel" that. I remember the Doctor's absolutely disgust for them that story and it makes a lot of sense. I love that he says he knew what he was. "Not the daleks". That really was beautiful and made me appreciate Twelve and One even more.
@BlakeAMartin19 "as da hullE hole also i am loving how different peter capaldi sins compared to matt smithi feel that the simplicity that he is patched shaolinperhaps " - You've succeeded in making some Doctor Who style techno-babble. Well done!

@awkward912 @supermoff Translated - Why is everyone else's opinion different to mine?
@mrclever @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen Your name suits your statement incredibly well.
@Antee991166 I've never agreed with anyone more. I'm loving the darker tone but this episode feels like a breath of fresh air. And it looks fantastic!

@Zach Hessemer The theme certainly sounded classic. Though I hope they don't ditch the new theme. I love their dramatic orchestra entrances.

@RobertMadsen I never thought of that. That is very. very clever! Thank you!

@Gustaff Having a bad opening is like having a terrible book cover, or a disgusting food colour. It isn't everything and you cannot judge the content by it, (though people do, because that's just how our senses work.) but it is still one of the first things, the first staples someone sees of the show.
4 days, 11 hours ago on Examining Series 8′s New Title Sequence
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @LGwalchmai95 I agree entirely. I like the new theme, as stated in the article, but that one would have made me happier. The additions to the 2005 version making it new and nostalgic at the same time were wonderful. And after-all, that is my favourite theme variant.
@SonicTheHedgehogRules I've rather come to love the 1986, Trial of a Timelord theme. It has a beautiful middle eight.
@The Finn It's not the concept that I find disgusting in S7B, it's the execution. It has some of the worst CGI in the history of New Who. That TARDIS model is just so yucky, and it is too random, throwing things in your face. The theme tune I found very weak, but most horrifically, those TARDIS doors open to reveal the episiode, and they open the wrong way, and not just that they open the wrong way, they open the awkward way! It just looks terrible. The whole thing.
@Ottoman14 I agree entirely. I want these titles to remain the same for a minimum of three series. (As long as Capaldi is staying that long.) We need stability for the Doctor. They can of course fiddle with the music though.
By the way, the reception to Capaldi's Doctor is probably the first time we've seen a near unanimous love for a Doctor at debut. It's truly wonderful.
5 days, 4 hours ago on Face-Off: The Eleventh Hour vs Deep Breath
@whtsaint Capaldi's range of speech patterns, facial expressions and voice tones showcased in Deep Breath were wonderful. I think he definitely will be my second favourite at minimum. (Could he beat Ten? I hope so!)
@SirTrey I agree with this, though I am biased. I wasn't very keen on Matt as a Doctor, especially during his first season, whereas I adore Capaldi, even before he was official cast. (During the rumour stage.)
You know, after a few rewatches, I think Capaldi's "I am the Doctor" moment is when he grabs Clara's hand. The music. The confidence. The scene is really wonderful. I guess we just didn't notice it because one, he didn't need it, two it's a very long scene. Absolutely love the music and Capaldi at this moment (I hope this is the new action theme.), he is totally capable of delivering lengthy victory speech-esque moments. I mean, the way he clings to the seat elevator despite the droid's warning giving a very doctory wave to his gang at the bottom. Beautiful. And it doesn't stop there, he goes on to be the Doctor for a whole second scene after!
I think Deep Breath's problem is that there wasn't very much at stake. The droids just wanted to fly away to find heaven, they didn't want to destroy worlds, just kill a few people to repair themselves from time to time. Compared to the Eleventh Hour where the Doctor had very little time to save the world.
5 days, 7 hours ago on Face-Off: The Eleventh Hour vs Deep Breath
That picture is glorious. Though I prefer Twelve, Eleventh Hour wins because it was a flawless story. The best post-regeneration one to date.
Deep Breath - AKA - Clara Gets Interesting. :)
6 days, 3 hours ago on Deep Breath: The Very Best of Clara Oswald
One of my favourite parts of Deep Breath was the music. That beautiful, dramatic slow drum melody as the camera zooms out of the collapsed Doctor, the absolutely mad, nutty, totally fun track when the Doctor wakes up. (Door, boring. Not me!) And the super epic, "The Doctor is In" piece that plays when he grabs Clara's hand and intensifies when the paternoster gang come in. Not to mention Eleven's final goodbye piece which after having no new tracks for Time of the Doctor regeneration, was beautiful to hear.
I am very excited for series 8's soundtrack, it looks to be the best yet. Question is...which one is the Doctors theme? None? All? I'm betting on the one where he grabs Clara's hand.

Well glad to see I wasn't missing much. Didn't laugh once.

"Why does Clara not understand the concept of regeneration? Yes, this is the first time she’s been present for one, but she’s recently met three different versions of the Doctor. Surely, in the post-adventure debrief, the subject arose?" - Okay, so you had a friend you really liked, perhaps even loved and they were the best thing to happen in your life. You later learn they can change their face, voice AND personality, potentially everything that you loved about them, and they have done so a dozen times and you have seen a few glimpses of those other faces. You might think you are prepared for when it happens again, but they change and it is like that person doesn't exist anymore. Clara might understand regeneration, but Matt, in her eyes, was still "her Doctor" and when he left her, it felt like the Doctor was gone because he was the only one she really knew. It was very in character and makes sense. She didn't have any problem understanding HOW it happened, she just hated that it did happen and didn't like the result.
1 week ago on Deep Breath Review
I think it is quite obviously the Doctor who pushed him. The Doctor says it's against his basic programming to murder, but he has shown a few times that is a lie, just look at Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. That was cold blooded murder.
Whereas the droids are clockwork robots, akin to computers. They might be using organic components but they still have a computerized mind and thus I believe them when told it is against THEIR basic programming to self destruct.

@supermoff @MeglosProductions It really was.
1 week, 3 days ago on Rate & Discuss Deep Breath
@shots1 Was unsure on the theme at first, a few re-watches after and now I really quite like it. I mean, at least it doesn't have the countermelody! That's like five points higher than the themes that did.
@MeglosProductions The thing is, they sort of didn't. But they did the comedy better. Between Strax, Vastra and the Doctor the episode was hilarious. Very funny. But not silly. :) I mean, just look and listen to the Doctor at the start where he says "take five" and faints. That hand gesture had me laughing and the way he said it.
@Exxilon5 @Antee991166 I think series 5/6/7 he was making a lot up, but this feels solid. So I'm confident he's thinking big this time.
@LewisR_94 There are two themes I am wondering about. The one where he falls down just before the credits which is very moving, and the absolutely nutty but fun action theme that seemed to pop up three times.
"Times like this I could do with Amy" - Damn the Doctor knows where to pull the punches.
@Beasts_a_Snarling Not so heavy handed and a little more subtle? To me this feels very similar to the Doctor's death and Clara's multiple deaths. Very interesting so far.
@Antee991166 @darklugia565 Yes, River, Tasha and now Missy share very similar characters that I'm starting to wonder if he has a plan...
@Yelloweternal Yep, I gave it a nine. It wasn't flawless, but it did a darn good job! Feels very partners in crime/ Smith and Jones-ish. A great start to the series.
