^ That was totally freeky! Once the bot-guy died, I thought that was it. Trust Dr.W, lol. And who knows? This could be something that might be part of a future episode. <G> I also got a kick out of how The Doctor, phoned from the past, for Clara, to push her to help ...uh....The Doctor out.
And I actually enjoyed how Capaldi slowly changed and evolved, for the better, through the episode. By the end of it, he was all tidy, got trust back from Clara...and off they went, lol!
This post is Spoilery, soooo.... be warned. I was on the fence with Capaldi through most the episode, and overall I didn't care for the story (I'm never a huge fan of the Victorian era episodes except The Snowmen). My biggest issue was with how distant he seemed from Clara (who is one of my favorite companions). But as the show progressed and they started to show that he really is the same doctor, just getting a feel for his new body, I started to come around. Then by the end where he still wasn't quite sure of the kind of guy he was and Clara was basically just telling him to get over it if he didn't like it, that was golden.
-11, he's always taken the cake as my favorite (sorry guys, I liked Tennant but he was never my favorite), and though I'm open to someone taking that position, he's always going to be a top choice for me. Loved seeing him in it. And man did it give you the Feels. -The Doctor's quip about missing having Amy around. -The Doctor's psychotic episode with the homeless guy. -Strax... May I take your hat? -Jenny looking all hot for no reason. -Vastra being attracted to Clara when she got pissed off and yelled at her, and then subsequently flirting with her throughout the episode.
Overall, looking forward to the season, I think it was a great start.
I love Doctor Who! I have a few theories about this Missy character. First off, let's refer back to the "Time Heist" episode. The Doctor rarely gives out his number to anyone period. Yet in "The Bells Of Saint John", we see that someone gave Clara his number. Now with buzz going on about "The Bells Of Saint John" episode and I have already been into it since that episode, here are a few of my theories:
1. River Song: Yes, old River is back, but is still in the "Library". You see, she has manipulated the system into extracting those who were in some sort of contact with The Doctor and is using it to eventually meet up with him.
2. The Master: This was one of those odd theories that I had pertaining to him and what could of happened. He could have come in contact with The Library or something of another sort to bring him almost back to life in a new form. This new form could very well be a new regeneration. Why a woman? This could be a coding element simply enough, or better yet possibly a regeneration trait? With 10-11's regen, 11 briefly states "I'm a girl?!", so that is a possibility.
3. The Doctor 2: In a few previous episodes it was stated that there are parallel universes and pocket universes. That would mean one could have an opposite in another universe, possibly who Missy is?
I'm bringing back this thread because I'm a huge Doctor Who fan. I'm probably one of the only TPR members who has seen every singe serial/episode of Doctor Who. My favorite doctors in order are 3,9,6,12. If anyone has any questions about the show feel free to ask and I should be able to answer.
