Jenna has now joined Capaldi in Moffat's nicely brewing trolling bowl. The amount of tease is unbearable, but it adds to the fun of finding out what happens within the series...

It has to be Davros. But I would love the Master back- who wouldn't? Or both. How good would that be? And it goes without saying who the next Master must and will be...me!

@Regenerated Catterson I'm hoping that Moffat would give the new Master his own TARDIS to play with. Oh the things he could do- like joining in secretly on saving Gallifrey, or preventing the prevention of it being destroyed...

This is brilliant. I returned from London Monday just gone. Typical. Great piece of publicity though. And continuity through the dinosaur bones. I also love the look of the Doctor. His hair looks better a bit grown out. I don't know what it is, I'm very OCD when it comes to the hair...

The thing that makes Smith and Jones the best series opener for me is the amount of originality. A simple but extremely effective story. And no random feeling to the episode like we get with most of the episodes these days. I guess the show doesn't feel as fresh as years gone by. I think perhaps it's time for a slight regular series break and another 'specials' route like in 2009. But anyway, series openers are so important, not only for continuing viewers to assure that their beloved show is still in safe hands, but also for new viewers tuning in for the first time. I think after the 50th, more and more people are inclined to start watching it as it's appeal has grown through increasing international publicity and the likes of it being shown in cinemas. Deep Breath should be a good opener- the start of a completely brand new era...

Hope it's not another Gatiss disappointment. Although to be fair, the majority of his historical episodes are quite good (obviously bar Victory). At least he's formed his own monster again this time and not been allowed to tamper with the Daleks and Ice Warriors again...

Why does this finale sound like the Series 5 finale: ...plans have been drawn. Old friends and old enemies manoeuvre around the Doctor, and an impossible choice is looming over him. Again, there is always something 'impossible' with Moffat- it's his trend and it's getting so boring now. And the word 'enemies' makes me think: 'Oh no, not another monster mash up'... However I do like the title 'Dark Water'- somehow reinforcing the mood of the series being 'dark', but I don't like 'Death in Heaven'- it's another episode straight after beginning with 'D'. It's like the 'double D' finale... (oh god, I've rambled on)

The only fear I have about Deep Breath is it's potential to be just a mad and random episode. There needs to be a justified story and good development. And the villain really must have decent screen time. With 75 minutes, there is a lot you can do. Fortunately, this time the story will be about one thing: the Doctor's regeneration and settling down into one location. I am comparing that of The Day of the Doctor where it was 75 minutes of 3 stories at once and it felt too jammed. I really am optimistic about the Series 8 opener, but I'm not hyping myself up too much in case it's another let down...

@supermoff  @Master Michael Moon But then isn't that surely Asylum of the Daleks with her shock appearance then, the actual Series 7 opener. Bells was just like a Series 7 opener, part 2, again. We all know the problems with Series 7 about how it felt fragmented and disjointed and it's a shame because those first 5 episodes were really great (except one particular ending), but then we had a load of change too soon from The Snowmen onwards. This is where for me, the show started to decline a bit- especially with the dreadful Series 7 Part 2.

Can we really call The Bells of Saint John an opener? Certainly not a series opener. It's like calling Let's Kill Hitler an opener. It's just the continuation of the second part of the series because on both occasions they were split. Not nit picking or anything, or am I...

What an excellent article, my heart was racing all the way through it! I've been holding my breath for ages, it will be nice to return to a face of colour soon. I expect my expectations to exceed with Capaldi. This is what I've been dreaming of for years: a darker Doctor. No more child's play (well, perhaps). It's interesting to draw comparisons with Eccleston's Doctor in the respect that it was implied he had just been involved within the Time War- I'm mainly talking about his confrontation with the lone Dalek in 'Dalek'. The Dalek episode of Series 8 seemingly has a similar confrontation- and this time, the Doctor has presumably just been involved again with the Time War- but this time a different outcome (saving, not destroying Gallifrey and in the process, still wiping out the Daleks). It will be interesting if the Dalek brings the war up or if it is indeed a survivor of it...

If it's something as good as The Pandorica finale then I will be happy. I also think a good format for future series would be to have a two part opener as well as a finale. I look forward to those cliffhangers again. The Doctor trapped, his companion 'dead', the universe exploding...

I assure everyone by saying that Steve John Shepherd would make a brilliant Master. Then Moffat can eat his words. His story is never done. He is the Doctor's arch enemy for god sake. Let's see how Series 8 plays out. Surely if Gallifrey is to return in the not too distant future, the Master is bound to pop up somewhere, trying to construct a TARDIS of his own again...

Look, why not for a charity special? It doesn't have to be a canon centric thing. It's a bit of fun and at the end of the day, a fan pleaser. Twitter would explode (and they could even have the Doctor making a reference to this, much to his annoyance). Maybe for Comic Relief 2015? There's your sort of 10th NuWho Anniversary special there...

@Ottoman14 Everything post 2010 has been, in my eyes, controversial. Not bad, but when you look at 2005-2010, everything about the show just seemed more composed and organic. And not just the titles, but the feeling to the episodes, the greatness of the stories, character development etc... Now, I feel we may be getting back to pre 2010 standards. Why? One word: Capaldi. Moffat no longer runs the show, it's Capaldi...

@Ivegotnewkidneys on the 23rd  Agreed. Why is every episode now an event? In fact, that load of rubbish started in Series 7 with the tacky 'blockbuster of the week' format. It's horrible and it's making the show into something it's not. Gone are the days of the traditional series where not a lot of fuss was made about an episode. It just used to play out and that was it. Everything these days is a hyped up 'special'...

The Doctor is a serious man and means business. He does not become fixated with children's toys and eat ridiculous things. I want the Doctor sending people to their deaths and becoming responsible for really dodgy things in time...

How about an Easter special to coincide with this? After all, Easter Saturday is April 4th in 2015 (so not far off 26th March). Maybe just a 60 minute special where it's just 12, 11 and 9 in a simple story with a few nods to past adventures over the last 10 years. And it could also make the wait until Series 9 less infuriating- that's supposing they stick with the August+ run...

I actually think Peter Capaldi could just be the best Doctor yet. I have no time for people who judge him on being 'old'. The older, the wiser. And we haven't had a grey haired Doctor ever, had we? It's hard to judge in black and white with Hartnell. Anyway, my point is that the Doctor is now a mentor like figure, no longer a young flop haired template for screaming fan girls. Now we will have women in their 50's obsessing...
