I'd say that in fairness, Deep Breath is a 9 and The Eleventh Hour is a clean 10. And I still don't think the Doctor pushed the Half-Faced Man I think he talked him into suicide.

Love Capaldi's new shirt, suits him better than the white one. And that guy from Primeval (can't remember his name now) looks menacing as the Sheriff.

This should be a fun episode, can't wait to see it. I wonder if anyone will go to heaven in this ep.

I love the new titles and the first time I've seen them I was like WOW (and I did actually say that out loud). Great work Billy!

As for the theme I think it really suits Capaldi's Doctor and generally I like it because it's not over the top, I don't know it just sounds right to me.

I thought the CGI was amazing in Into the Dalek. Better than in Deep Breath certainly where the dinosaur looked a bit out of place. The space battle was great in this episode.

No, final rating will be revealed later (see Deep Breath). And there are lots of people watching the show outside the UK (I'm one of them) and I don't think the BBC really cares too much about these figures in the age of iplayer and other ways to watch online.

My number one moment is without doubt Clara slapping the Doctor followed by Danny banging his head on the table and the Daleks entering the Aristotle.

And is it just me or did they really sound and seem more menacing when they said "Seek, locate, destroy"?

My favourite moment from the Parting of the Ways is the moment the Ninth Doctor says "No!' and that he's going to save Rose and wipe out the Daleks. It's my favourite 9th Doctor moment and I can't wait for something similar with Capaldi in tonight's episode.

What really annoys me is people who say "great, the show is back on the right path with Capaldi" thus dismissing the whole Matt Smith tenure. 

I think Matt was incredibly brave because I know what it's like to have people look at you without any shred of confidence and say "ok let's see what you can do" but he proved them all wrong so he's a real inspiration to me.

Although I love Deep Breath to bits my vote goes to the Eleventh Hour. There is something truly magical about this episode and I love it no matter how many times I see it. The Eleventh Doctor and little Amy eating fish fingers and custard is the most adorable scene in Doctor Who. 

Deep Breath was great but it lacked that "I am the Doctor" moment. They're clearly playing the mysterious Doctor card and that's good it keeps up with the show's constant need for change but Capaldi's debut still comes out a bit short for not having that definitive Doctor moment.

Clara was just stunning in Deep Breath and I'm sure that by the time series 8 will come to an end people will be begging for her to do series 9 as well.

And I've said this before but she reminds me of Sarah Jane more and more. Her relationship with the Doctor, the way she is constantly challenging him, the fact she is brave and really clever and how well she knows him, they are all very similar to SJS's relationship to the Fourth Doctor.

Excellent article!

I like his scripts too but I feel he never really leaves his confort zone. I mean there is no doubt he's the king of historicals and he did write one episode set in the present but I think he should challenge himself more and try to write something different, more complex nit just fun romps.

I must admit when I first saw the scene I was surpised but in a very good way. Good on them to show the kiss, maybe the young generation who watch the show now will grow up to be more open-minded.

It's just the sort of thing a culturally important show like Doctor Who should feature. Those who are against it should keep living in the Dark Age.

I agree with The Impossible Astronaut taking the top spot. As much as I love the Eleventh Hour (and I really do love it) I've never been more intrigued by a Doctor Who episode than when I saw The Impossible Astronaut. A very bold, solid series opener and one of my favourite episodes ever.

And congradulations on a great series of articles!

Strangely enough, even though I loved The Eleventh Hour and it's the best series opener so far (I wonder if Deep Breath will take the top spot?) I only felt Matt Smith was the Doctor after seeing the Beast Below. The end scene of the Eleventh Hour and The Beast Below that's when I really started to care for the Eleventh Doctor.

Reading this article I though "Oh great, this is amazing we've got Confidentiak back!!" but then I got to the end and it's going to be only 10 minutes long. That's just the same as those behind the lens videos and they hardly have enough time to get through everything (like stunts, directors, interviews and stuff). It should have been 30 minutes long, like Confidential was in Series 2 (45 minutes was a bit too much).

Still, I'll be curious to see how they'll fit everything together.

That's the answer Jenna! I really hope she stays and this has all been a case of desperate journalists looking for a story.

It really makes me sad to say this, but this silence and the whole "let's wait and see what happens" probably means Jenna will leave the show this year. 

And that's a real shame because I like it when companions stay longer, like Amy, and I really think that Clara's character deserved to be in the series for a considerably longer period of time given her immense importance in the Doctor's life.

If this is really the case I hope they will clear things up soon because I'm going to need a while to come to terms with the departure of my favourite companion. Especially if it's going to be the case of another gloomy Christmas.

Partners in Crime is my favourite opener after the Eleventh Hour. It's funny, fast-paced and the idea of fat turning into cuddly monster-y things is just brilliant. And I loved Mrs. Foster, she was a proper badass villain superbly played by Sarah Lancashire (I felt a bit sorry when she died).

I think if you'd read the plot you'd think "Wht the hell is this?!" but just like the article states only in Doctor Who can you make a great episode based on a mad and kind of ridiculous idea.

The ending scenes of this episode were just brilliant. From the Doctor carrying Donna's bags with that desperate bloke face to "You're not mating with me, sunshine" and waving to Wilf from the TARDIS, this episode is one of the best from Tennant's tenure and I love it to bits.

I really like New Earth, it's very funny fast-paced, it's got interesting ideas and moral concepts and Lady Cassandra's transformation was very well-written in my opinion.

Frankly I never understood why people dislike this episode so much. I must confess I've got a soft spot for series 2 since it was the first one I've seen and although New Earth is not The Eleventh Hour it's still a very enjoyable episode.

Great article!

This has really been blown out of proportion. The BBC should really do something about it and the fact that they don't worries me. And I dread to click the refersh button because I might find out they have confirmed she's leaving.

Nooooo. I don't want another sad Christmas. And besides I know Clara has been around since 2012 but I feel we are just getting to know her and her character has enough unexplored potential to go into series 9.

She has been my favourite companion and I found her to be such a charming, lovely and realistic character, despite what some people think of her. With companions like Amy I had to stretch a bit to accept her and ignore some aspects of the chracter (like the constant flirting and the self assured nature of the chracter) but with Clara I didn't have to do any of that. I just love her character and the way Jenna portrays her.

This news really made me feel sad, it affected me more than I thought it would.  Besides, with Amy and Rory it felt like it was the right time for them to leave. With Clara I don't feel that time has come yet and I hope she does series 9 too.
