THIS JOURNAL CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE SEASON 8 OF DOCTOR WHO- DEEP BREATH READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Two Hour Episode- TWO HOURS! And it was BRILLIANT! It may just be the New Whoness, but I quite enjoyed this episode. Our New Doctor, comical and very serius, through out the episode you can really see the transition between the Smith flamboyant Doctor to the Capaldi Doctor. My thoughts on Capaldi, I like him, I want to see how he acts as his Doctor, it's hard to judge a Doctor by his first appearance, but I think he will be Fantastic, we just need to get past Smith really, I mean, I think that's the hardest thing about being a Whovian, the Character you fall in love with keeps changing, but then, maybe that's why we love the show, we're the companions in a way, we have to get used to a new face and Doctor just like the companions. I will just say...the Matt Smith Phone call really helps, beacuse it's still him, it's still his face, and he's still our Doctor, so I wish Capaldi good luck and GERONIMO!
Anyway, Storywise, it was very fun, I mean when you start out with a Dinosaur and the Dinosaur tries to flirt with the Doctor, it's pretty fun, it's a fun mystery and a return of an old foe, the Clockworks, which are WAY more threatening in this episode and it's funny trying to see him try and remember where he's seen it before ( he never does...) but interesting enough, that's kinda in the background, it's mostly about Clara trying to figure out this Doctor and the Doctor trying to figure himself out ( he legit thinks the mirrors have angry faces in them >.< ) and I was really scared at one point because I thought he really left her, to be harvested by INSANE ROBOTS, thank Rassilon he had something up his sleeve ( or maybe it was an accident ) there's comedy here and there too, it's very fun. Plus we have a very curious character now, Missy, who's this girl claiming to know the Doctor and says he's her ' boyfriend' very very curious, can't wait to try and figure her out, my brother thinks it's River Song, I don't think so, I think they finished up her story arch.
all and all, I enjoyed this episode, Eleven's Hour is finally over, and the Clock has officially struck Twelve, Darkness is falling and we are diving straight into it, so until next time my friends
