I actually wasn't a big fan of the new episode. I like Capaldi, and I'm definitely interested to see where the season is going, but I felt the actual story was incredibly boring. I am also SO sick of Vastra. She's fine, but we've seen her far to often recently (and by 'recently' I mean last season).

Hype train was too high on this, obviously. New Doctor is fine but how long can something stay 'Hip'? I know more than a few people who are iffy now. It's a shame.

Watched it again. Capaldi is great and the chemistry with Clara is evident. Hype be damned. Not an epic start but it's still great watching.

I didn't care much for the start (where he's sort of bumbling about), but there was clear "Doctor"-material in there by the end.

Looking forward to the rest of it. :)

I liked it, actually. My boyfriend had to twist my arm about it when it was airing since I was already losing interest in Matt Smiths run who has been my least favourite of all the revived series Doctors. Yeah, yeah, I know a lot of people love him. The only thing that made me enjoy his run truly was Amy, and when she left for Clara I wasn't really feeling it. Clara felt like a cardboard cutout most of the time, just there, despite this apparently amazing role in the Doctors life as The Impossible Girl.

Clara felt a bit redeemed for me in this episode. Yeah she was kinda a bit of an idiot when the Doctor regenerated (hasn't she seen EVERY Doctor regeneration??? Why did this phase her?) but the sort of tension she had with Capaldi was great, as Vastra said it was nice to see her get her feathers ruffled for once. I really miss Amy's fieryness. The villain was a bit neither here nor there for me, just a vehicle to get the ball rolling.

I liked Matt Smith's version of the Doctor (unfortunately coming off Tennant he felt kind of similar in some ways and tamer in others...but I did like the excitement he had!).  I loved Amy (as you say, she was 'firey', and I liked how she played with the 'weird' that's thrown at them).  I even liked Rory a bit as a sort-of good-hearted punching bag.

But I agree, I think the plots during the Matt Smith era were a bit heavy and it got kind of annoying.  It never really sat right with me.

I am looking forward to Capaldi if for nothing more than a fresh slate.  Daresay, it's kind of nice he's a little less of a pretty boy too (not that it's ever a bad thing, but just to change things up).
