Okay, I'm a Brit so I've already seen the Episode but I'll say this much... I really hated the episode.

Not because Capaldi is a bad actor (He's not) or that he was too old (He's not) but because it feels like it was written and directed by a ten-year-old. I don't think I've ever seen an episode of Dr. Who more confused about what it wanted to be. There are some RIDICULOUSLY dark elements in the story like that whole thing with the balloon... I mean... my god.... but then you've got slapstick comedy with cartoony noises.

I don't need Dr. Who to be dark and I don't need it to be funny. I'm fine with an episode being one or the other but I'd like it at the very least to choose one. Take, for example, the introduction of Matt Smith. It was a pretty simple story that allowed us to focus on the characters and the themes that would characterise the Matt Smith era of the series, namely a lot of timey-wimey-cor-and-blimey and dangling plot-threads that get picked up by later episodes.

It was short, sweet, relatively simple, not too complex, and introduced Smith in a really damn cool way. There was just that wonderful moment of "I'm the Doctor." where I felt "Yes, this IS the Doctor."

Next episode was some pretty grim source material but it worked because of the management of tone.

But with this episode I didn't get that "I'm the Doctor." moment. The episode feels as confused as the Doctor is and the direction given to Capaldi must have been... bizarre given the way he overacts throughout the episode. And not just him, the writing seemed really... quirky. And not in the traditional Doctor Who, "We're serious people but we've got our quirks." but in a really forced way.

It's like Sherlizard Holmes spent the episode saying "Ha ha, we're lesbians!" and Strax was degraded from the mentally-deficiant but kinds badass muscle-man/nurse into "I'm the dumb one."

I'm not saying I've given up on Who, far from it, but this first episode has me kinda worried.

Yesterday my sister said, "Peter Capaldi is too old to be the doctor."
Even now I'm struggling to find the words to describe how I felt.

Well to keep the 12 year old recently-pubescent boy demographic entertained, there was always that inter-species lesbian kiss. Which, in my honest opinion, was just added in there for the sake of it ( or for some other occult reason, I don't make the damn show. Hell, maybe one of the producers has a really specific fetish. ) and was thinly veiled with the excuse that they needed to do it to share oxygen. That or lizard women get horny at inappropriate times. I don't have a degree in Xeno studies.

I still don't know what to think of the episode. I don't hate the new doctor but I don't think the writing is that great, it hasn't been for a while.

I was born after 1989 and so can't experience old Who in all it's glory (have seen the sea devils and the ark in space though)
