i watched deep breath and i just… hated it immensely oh my god. capaldi tried his best but there’s only so much you can do with that writing.
i actually thought deep breath was the best the show has been in ages. to go from the standard of writing in TotD, to the standard of writing in deep breath seemed miraculous to me. there were bits i objected to - not least the sometimes literally nonsensical dialogue and the needless comments on gender - but overall i was amazed at how much i liked it! so much of that was down to capaldi though.

I still haven’t watched the new one but I’m reading whatever reviews are on my dash. thoughts?
i think the show (or its lead writer) seems a bit re-energised by the new doctor, and the show seems to be trying a bit harder. that said, there seems to be a hell of a lot of recycling going on. this week’s dalek episode was the second episode in a row that has been a direct sequel to an rtd-era episode, and that seems wrong when the show has a brand new doctor.
