Excellent introduction! I like her already.

I like that she doesn't take the situation seriously even when the Doctor is trying to be as dour and intense as possible. After all, the companion is...

I haven't popped in to give my impressions yet, so I'll just give a hurried version: I love this series so far. It's been a bit wonky in places but overall has a set a very high bar for acting and...

I can't understand the people who don't tolerate change well but call themselves fans of Doctor Who. It comes with the show. Deal with it.

Why wouldn't the TARDIS like it?

I'm sceptical about a female Doctor. Not because I have anything against the idea in principle, but because I don't trust the writers not to make cheap gender...

Love the episode, but I didn't like that scene. I already thought Clara's super special mysterious importance was over-the-top but that pushed it right into 'self insert character in fan fiction'...

BringTheNoise, I have in my head a list of things that I think should be changed to improve Doctor Who (I'm nerdy, I know it). The number one position is 'Put away the sonic screwdriver'.

Did Amy and Rory just mention their marriage and move on?

I punched the air when I saw them on the Next Week trailer. Yes!

The former career of the male ghost hunter may have influenced the date the episode was set.

Some more thoughts:

Was it set in Cumbria? There was an awkward reference to Carlisle and a mention...

Something about the latest series just isn't sitting right with me so far. They've all been decent episodes, but in the latest two episodes in particular the dialogue was off. I know that Doctor Who...

Me too! I agree, the plot wasn't good. It set itself up fairly well and then just sort of fizzled out damply. But it was a decent 'character' episode, just for the look into the effect the Doctor has...

The excessiveness of it was my main problem. I agree there's a difference between teasing and just being out-and-out rude to somebody for no reason (other than that it's supposed to be flirty).
