Not gonna be a jerk and add any spoilers, but I'll give tonight's return a solid 7/10. Not the best episode ever by a long shot but then we are only just getting to know that new companion. Solid enough and worth 45 minutes of your life if you're a fan for sure!

Goods episode for me too. It nicely set up the characters. The plot was pretty thin though.

only, I think, because it's a part of a much larger story arc. And the basic idea was quite scary. I suspect we may be seeing it again.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

1. The new opening credits SUCK.
2. Clara is about as boring as Martha.
3. I wonder who the bad guy was... Maybe the Master? Or someone else from the old series?

One of my favourite theories, and it, of course, makes no real sense, is that he's been saying his real name all the time, but the TARDIS produces it as "The Doctor".

Brilliant Doctor was Tom.

I have every episode of Dr Who ever recorded (exluding the missing video for about 6 of them, but I have those on audio) a total of 45 Gigabyte of data and weeks and weeks of viewing.

Dr Who theme is my ringtone.
