The Doctor Who season 8 premiere was Saturday night! I think I’ve sat on it long enough to put together my thoughts.
First off, Peter Capaldi was AMAZING!!! I honestly didn’t think I’d like him as much as I did. The best part, is that we barely scratched the surface as to what his Doctor will be like. There were so many things I loved about the episode. I think for one, is that you can still see bits of 11 in 12 in some scenes. It just the little things like the way he reacts to stuff. Also, Clara felt like the voice of the audience during most parts of the episode. Like, “Who is he” and “He’s old!”. Haha! Even though we all knew Capaldi was happening, to me, it still didn’t feel real. I kept wanting Matt to come back… but that brings me to my favorite part of the whole episode….
I had so many favorite moments from this episode. For one, it had to be Matt Smith coming back!! I wasn’t expecting it and it broke my heart. BUT it was a fantastic scene. The Doctors speech felt like he was telling us, the audience, that even though he’s know 11, he still is. It was a really touching scene and I loved it to bits!
Since the episode barely introduced us to 12, I can’t wait to see more! I know some people had some problems with the episode, but one things for sure, I sure am happy to have Doctor Who back! 🙂
