Really looking forward to this one. I've been anticipating seeing more of Clara's life as a teacher and seeing more of Coal Hill School. I'm also looking forward to seeing Danny and the Doctor meet and getting a full appearance by Courtney Woods.

I give it a solid 8/10. Interesting side characters, lots of funny moments, great production design, a suspenseful plot, and an intimidating monster. Though, in my opinion, the ending felt a bit rushed and the fate of the two Tellers felt like a rehash of the monster love story in Hide. But, overall, a really good episode.

@DaftDalek is Ceter Papaldi @Master Michael Moon I know this is all just opinions but, from where I'm standing, Night Terrors never had a moment as low as when a woman was literally transformed into a living BJ toy. Just sayin'.

I absolutely loved Listen but Blink remains to be my second favorite episode (coming in right behind The Day of the Doctor). So, obviously, I'm voting for Blink.

After reading these previews and teasers, I feel very much in the dark about where I think Capaldi's Doctor and the show are going...and I LOVE IT! I'm as excited about the rest of Series 8 as I am anxious. It looks like things are going to get incredibly dark after The Caretaker and I can't wait to see how things turn out.

It looks like the real dark stuff that everyone's been talking about kicks in in the later half of Series 8. From where I stand, it appears that The Caretaker will be the last "light-hearted" episode of the season. Kill the Moon and Mummy on the Orient Express are being teased to being extremely dark and showcasing the Doctor at his scariest, Flatline is teased to being a scary horror story by the end, not much is known about In the Forest of the Night aside from trees coming back and there being a lot of child actors (so that episode could potentially be light-hearted), and the two-part finale, Dark Water and Death in Heaven, I assume will be pretty dark and intense.

In my opinion, this episode was absolutely amazing. I loved everything about it. The reveal at the end with Clara finding herself in the Doctor's childhood was a brilliant twist that made my jaw drop. I'm also really looking forward to seeing what the future holds for both Clara and Danny. Capaldi also REALLY came into his own as the Twelfth Doctor in this episode and this was easily his best performance in the series thus far. So far, Series 8 is shaping up to be one of my favorite series of the show (though, I don't want to overblow my expectations for the rest of the episodes so I'll remain cautiously optimistic). My rankings thus far: Deep Breath = 9/10, Into the Dalek = 7/10, Robot of Sherwood = 8/10, Listen = 10/10

This episode was...just...AWESOME! I loved every moment of this episode! The pacing was great, the atmosphere was creepy, both the Doctor and Clara were fantastic (as usual), Orson was a nice little twist, it was great seeing more of Danny and literally seeing his backstory, and...that...ENDING! OH MY GOD! Sorry if I sound like I'm fanboying out because...well...that's exactly what I'm doing. Needless to say, I loved this episode and it's easily the best one of Series 8 thus far! 10/10!

I thought Danny and the Doctor were going to meet in Listen. That makes me even more interested in learning about Danny's role in this week's upcoming episode! In relation to The Caretaker, I'm really looking forward to this episode. I've been really excited about seeing more of Clara's teacher life and it'll be cool to have a Coal Hill-centered episode. I've also really liked all of Gareth Roberts's episodes thus far so that's another reason for me to look forward to this. :)

Normally, I'd click on the "show" button because I usually don't mind looking at slightly spoiler-ish pictures. I even did this when The Day of the Doctor promo pics were released. But, for some reason, I just don't want to do that for this episode. Maybe it's because this episode has just so much mystery about it. Out of all of Series 8's episodes, this is arguably the episode we know the least about. All we know about the episode is that it involves a date between Clara and Danny, the Doctor's supposed to have a slight mental breakdown about something that scares him, there's a little boy, there's something beneath beds and grabbing kids' feet, and, gotta say it, we have to LISTEN! This is easily one of my most anticipated episodes this season. Saturday can't come fast enough!

Personally, I've enjoyed Moffat's episodes as a showrunner and, in my opinion, he's still managed to give us several great episodes. My favorite being The Day of the Doctor. The main reason why I'm anticipating Listen so much is because we know next to nothing about it; and that's AWESOME! I love going into new episodes with no idea about what lies in store. And the unpredictability of Capaldi's darker Doctor only adds more suspense to the mix. I don't want to over-hype myself and end up disappointed when my overbloated expectations aren't met but I'm still hoping that this episode proves to be one of Moffat's greats. It has a lot of potential. Let's hope it lives up to it. :)

I just noticed that all of the episodes of Series 8 thus far involve the Doctor not believing in the existence of something. In Deep Breath it was the Promised Land, in Into the Dalek it was a good Dalek, and here it was Robin Hood. I wonder if the Doctor not believing in something that turns out to be true is going to be a running theme throughout Series 8 (and possibly the rest of Capaldi's tenure).

@Planet of the Deaf @supermoff of Sherwood Maybe she's someone who adopts different accents. Just a random theory. It would be interesting if after every few phrases of dialogue she changes her accent. It could potentially make her a far more difficult character to read.

I enjoyed this episode. The supporting cast was pretty forgettable for the most part and most of the Daleks held few surprises for me. However, I enjoyed seeing the journey into the Dalek Fantastic Voyage style, the Twelfth Doctor and Clara continued to bounce off each other extremely well, I enjoyed getting a fresh and interesting look at the morality of the Daleks, Journey Blue was a good supporting character, and I've already taken a liking to Danny Pink (PTSD wounds, awkwardness, and all). Overall, I give the episode a 7/10.

I voted 9/10 so I'm satisfied with the first poll. I noted No for the second poll but given what we saw the Doctor do with Ross in Into the Dalek I think I'm just stuck in the middle now. I voted for Deep Breath because I just enjoyed it slightly more than The Eleventh Hour; but, personally, I think comparing the two episode was like comparing apples and oranges. Both episodes are fantastic but in different ways. It's like trying to compare two episodes like, just for example, Blink and The Girl Who Waited. Two incredible episodes but for very different reasons.

I'm really looking forward to this episode. I've liked most of Mark Gatiss's episodes and I'm looking forward to seeing the show's take on Robin Hood. Also, I like me some medieval England. And, gotta say it, Clara looks pretty damn good in that medieval dress and...tiara? What's she wearing on her head? Oh and the Doctor has a new purple shirt under his crombie coat. He's only been in his official outfit for one full episode and a sliver of another and he's already changing things up. And it looks like the Sheriff of Nottingham's creeping on Clara. I wonder if she'll slap him. As of now, this looks like it's going to be a fun romp of an episode.

This wasn't an episode that I was particularly excited for and while it's probably not going to go down as one of my Series 8 favorites I still enjoyed it nonetheless. I liked the idea of going inside a Dalek Fantastic Voyage style and there were several great moments of dialogue here and there. But, in all honesty, my favorite parts of the episode were when we got to see Clara at Coal Hill School and got introduced to Danny Pink. I guess this is mostly because I've personally grown a bit tired by the Daleks and, going into this episode, I was WAY more interested in seeing Clara's teacher life. But, in the end, it was an enjoyable episode.

I love the new opening sequence. My only gripe is the high pitch of the theme tune in the latter half of the opening. But I've watched the opening several times now and the pitch doesn't annoy me as much as it used to. By the way, am I the only one who liked the Series 7B opening? Aside from the TARDIS doors opening the wrong way, I found it to be an exciting and energetic opening. In my humble opinion, it was a huge improvement over the 2010-2012 opening. Moving on, this current opening is currently my favorite in terms of visuals. In terms of music, my favorite is the Series 4 tune.

When you think about it, this is going to be the first episode since Nightmare in Silver to have just one Doctor in it. The Name of the Doctor and The Day of the Doctor had all of the Doctors appear in them and both The Time of the Doctor and Deep Breath had the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors appear in them.

I absolutely loved Deep Breath. Does it have its flaws? Sure. But I still found Capaldi to be a very interesting, unpredictable, and intense Doctor; Clara's characterization and development were outstanding (though, granted, some of it was a bit over the top in relation to her response to the Doctor's regeneration); the Paternoster Gang were used incredibly well; the villains were intimidating; Matt Smith's cameo was fitting and touching; and the plot threads set up for Series 8 are interesting. Others may disagree with me and that's fine; but I still found Deep Breath to be a superb episode and a perfect start for the era of the Twelfth Doctor!

I didn't even know that there was even a fuss being made about this. To me, it was just a kiss shared between two lovers (as well as a method to allow Vastra and Jenny to hold their breaths longer). Nothing more and nothing less. If anything, the constant references to Vastra and Jenny's marriage and lesbianism are what annoyed me a bit. Now, just to elaborate, I have no problem with Vastra and Jenny being a lesbian couple. I really like their characters and their relationship is well developed and touching. What annoys me sometimes is that it seems the show needs to constantly keep reminding us that they're a lesbian couple with them either outwardly flirting in every other sentence or restating the fact that they're married. We get it. They're a married, lesbian couple. We got it the first time and we most certainly got it the fiftieth time. This isn't something that needs to be constantly shoved in our faces. A little couple flirting here and there is fine but we don't need to be reminded of it in every other scene because we already know about their relationship.

@YaelMoise @Coffee and Chips @DasManiac That tends to a large problem in the fandom nowadays. People go into every episode expecting a masterpiece and end up disappointed when the episode didn't live up to their overbloated expectations. I went into this episode with cautious optimism (as I will do for every episode this season) and ended up absolutely loving it. Now, based on your other comments, I can deduce that you didn't like the episode, to say the least. And that's fine. That's your opinion and I respect it. Besides, whatever we say to each other most likely won't make me love the episode or you dislike the episode any less than we already do. So I'm fine just agreeing to disagree, moving on, and continuing to look forward to the rest of Series 8. :)

If people are still saying that Clara doesn't have a personality after this episode then they're completely wrong IMO. There were many parts in this episode dedicated to further fleshing out Clara's flaws and personality and developing her character (the restaurant scene and the classroom flashback are prime examples). If people continue to not like Clara after this, then fine. Enjoyment of companions is subjective. You can say that you don't like Clara's personality or her character but to say that she is completely devoid of a personality is just a load of bull at this point.

@MovieversalFilm Peter Capaldi is the thirteenth INCARNATION of the Time Lord that is the Doctor but he is the TWELFTH Doctor because the War Doctor refused to go by the name of the Doctor. I find it baffling that people are STILL confused about this when it's really so simple! John Hurt isn't the Ninth Doctor. He is the technically-unnamed incarnation of the Doctor that fought in the Time War; thus he is called the War Doctor. Eccleston is still the Ninth Doctor, Tennant is still the Tenth Doctor, Smith is still the Eleventh Doctor, and Capaldi is the Twelfth Doctor.

I loved all of these scenes and all of "Deep Breath", for that matter. It's hard for me to pick a favorite. I guess, for me, it comes to a tie between the 11th Doctor's phone call and Clara's flashback to her first day as a teacher. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of Clara's life outside her travels with the Doctor and seeing more of her teaching job at Coal Hill School. Overall, "Deep Breath" was an amazing start for both Series 8 and Capaldi's era. I can't wait to see what happens next!

I loved this episode from beginning to end. Capaldi's Doctor was intense and unpredictable and I can't wait to see how he develops throughout the rest of Series 8. Clara got loads of welcome development and I loved seeing the control freak side of her come out. I have high hopes for her future. The Paternoster Gang were fun as always, the villains were intimidating, the new opening sequence and redecorated TARDIS interior were awesome, and I LOVED Matt's cameo. Overall, this was just an amazing start for Capaldi's era IMO.

I think the Daleks should get a LONG rest after this episode. They've been used way too much throughout New Who to the point that them appearing doesn't have as much of an impact as it should. I'll admit that I'm looking forward to this episode as it has a fresh idea for a Dalek story and I'm interested in seeing how Capaldi's Doctor reacts to his greatest enemy. But, after this, I think the BBC should wait a couple series before bringing the Daleks back.

I like "New Earth". It's not the best opener but it's certainly nowhere near close to a horrendous episode. And I have to admit that I find the final scene with Cassandra dying in the arms of her past self to be an amazingly emotional moment. It's definitely my favorite scene in the episode and one of my favorite scenes in Series 2 in general.
