One of my all-time favourite episodes and a fantastic arrival for Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Love this DVD and have watched it A LOT! Can highly recommend! My Dad wasn't a Doctor Who fan until he saw this episode. The Paternoster Gang (Madame Vastra, Jenny & Strax) certainly help make this episode what it is

Coughed up and spat out by an outrageously oversized CGI dinosaur (fortunately, while protected by the TARDIS) isn't the most auspicious way for the latest incarnation of the Doctor to make his arrival in Victorian London, yet when the blue door opens all is well.

It's a long time since the Doctor last had a commanding, lived-in face and grey, curly hair but those were great years which also began with the Doctor in a nightshirt, in a bed, in an erratic post-regeneration state of mind. Peter Capaldi seizes the attention from his first scene and emphatically is The Doctor, growing in this opening story from despairing fragility and memory loss back into the heroic Time Lord who has lived a dozen lives and has memories he might want to forget. A superb performance, mixing humour with action and hints of the darker, truly alien side of the Doctor as displayed in many of his incarnations right back to the First.

The direction and filming are excellent, the sets and effects are the usual high standard and with most of the other characters being familiar faces, we know the acting will be equally good and it is. The regeneration story is very well told, covering about the first and last quarters of the episode; if there's a weakness, for me it comes from the other parts of the story, which are generally enjoyable and action-filled but not especially memorable. (Though from the ending I suspect the `journey to the promised land' seed planted here might grow considerably through the season.) Classic-series fans will enjoy spotting at least two lines of dialogue inserted in tribute to the past.

This 80-minute episode combines the regeneration story with a fairly typical romp through the usual semi-pastiche olde London.

After a brief appearance at the end of The Time of the Doctor at Christmas, Peter Capaldi makes his full episode debut as the 12th (or maybe 13th) Doctor in a feature length episode.

Soon after his regeneration the Doctor we presume must have crash landed in Prehistoric times and the TARDIS is swallowed by a dinosaur. By dematerialising the dinosaur travels with the TARDIS and they end up in Victorian London - the dinosaur eventually coughing up the TARDIS and the new Doctor stumbles out with Clara, bumping into the Paternoster Gang, and is as confused as ever after the regeneration process. Whilst resting the Doctor wakens and heads off to chat to the frightened dinosaur but sees it spontaneously combust en route. Discovering that there have been many reports of spontaneous combustion in the press recently the Doctor decides this is more of a link to murders and decides to try and solve the mystery, especially after spying a man with a half human, half android face.

After past disappointments when I've been over excited about certain Doctor Who episodes (Time of the Doctor for example), this episode is a great start to the Capaldi era, thankfully toning the character of the Doctor down from the past couple of incarnations and introducing a wonderfully darker and dangerous Doctor. There are many references and lines in the script that reference past stories ' here we go again' - Brigadier in Robot, Doctor waking up and looking under his bed - Spearhead from Space' and the regular 'You've had this place redecorated - don't like it' - Troughton in The Five Doctors. You can tell the episode is directed by Ben Wheatley - some of the sets look amazing and the tone throughout is creepy and at times very unsettling, perhaps for the strongest time since Blink was originally aired.

A newly regenerated Doctor crash lands the Tardis in Victorian London and ends up fighting against familiar looking clockwork droids while trying to make sense of his new identity. Doctor Who goes back to basics in the first feature length episode of series 8. No more flirting, no more boyfriend type Doctors, those days are gone with a new no nonsense, darker and older Doctor harking back to the classic series days of original Doctor William Hartnell and 3rd Doctor Jon Pertwee. New Doctor Peter Capaldi is excellent with an excellent debut episode up there with the best debut episodes of any previous Doctor. Jenna Coleman is also excellent as companion Clara, trying to make sense of the regeneration and new Doctor who is so different from the Doctor she knew yet is still the same man while Madam Vastra, Strax and Jenny return in a fun romp. A promising start for the new Doctor and if you can't wait for the series 8 complete boxset, this is well worth a look.

This a bit of a mess. Unlike Matt Smith, Peter C gets an overlong opener crammed with two many unfulfilled ideas and navel gazing. Let's open with a T-Rex - the kiddies will love it but what for? Oh I know, so we can have it spitting out the tardis and that will look great on screen. Human interest ? - We'll have Clara having problems with coming to terms with the new Doctor so we'll need someone to talk to but who? A lizard and her Lesbian lover - Perfect. Throw in a joke or two with a sontaran, some minor plot linked to an old tenth doctor story and if it's not working we can have Matt turn up and that will make it alright!!!!!

Not the worst DW intro (remember Time and the Rani) but close to it. Just because you throw money at a programme and have it produced by one of smartest people in the business doesn't make it good.

The only hope with this is Peter C's performance which has promise and given a decent script who knows.
