So good I chewed my own foot off, 31 Jan. 2014
The first episode 'Long Tea Break of the Doctor' was a bit disappointing, although the new enemy race 'The Pancreas' look promising. Things really kick in a gear in episode 2 “Carry on Doctor” and Matron really seems like the new River Song but with more smut.
EP 3 is a tear jerker “Doctor, Doctor I think I'm a Pair of Curtains!' – It was tough to see the Cybermen being replaced by new improved Apple iCybermen. I thought it was a bit Deus Ex Machina for the Doctor to beat them by uploading Candy Crush into their Hive database though.
Ep 4,5,6,7,8,9 & 10, 11 and 12 is the first time 'modern' Who has done a long multi-episode arc and about time too. 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' sees the Doctor stuck on a Games show planet where all is not as it seems. Actually it is, every episode sees the Doctor traversing through a game show, I didn't see the point really. The Daleks were fun to watch in Jeopardy. Every 'question' to the answer was Exterminate. And Blockbuster was hilarious “I'll have a P please Master!” lol!
The final episode was a big surprise. SPOILER ALERT for those who haven't already gone forward in time to watch it. “Knock Knock Who's Bare?” sees the Doctor in a nudist colony for the Slitheen. That's the first time I've hidden behind the couch since I was a kid, it was disgusting! But of course the big shock was when the Doctor regenerated into an Adipose. I didn't see that coming at all!
I can't wait to go forward in time to watch the next season, as soon as I get some fuel for Mr. Fusion. Anyone got a banana skin they don't need?
