Hah. Chris Hardwick schooling us on how to pronounce Capaldi. Eh, I don't know if I'll be able to do it.

Muting Wil. Talking about based on clips he's seen. Why am I watching this?

Yeah I'm not really. I'll watch it later.

I don't know about Intruders. But I'll watch anyway. Because John Simm.

Some of these New York fans... I imagine we might have very different opinions on...things.

Show:

Most of this was written during the commercials. Until my brief thoughts in summary at the end.


Glad that spoiler I learned today got out of the way quickly (dinosaur in the Thames).

New intro! Um. Cheesy! But I don't hate it. I don't love the music. Oh well. I don't love the making it more ridiculous each time. Whatever.

No wedding ring right off the bat. Interesting.

They're pushing this flirting/no flirting thing really hard. Jenny clapping is very cute.

I'm honestly glad I didn't know the Victorian London trio were in this. I'm well over them and their throwaway lines.

I don't remember how much Clara remembers, but I know she's got some working knowledge of past Doctors. Why would she be SO thrown by his apparent age?

Wish they'd left the face thing at 'I never know where I get them.' Don't want that to be A Thing. We'll see.

O_o about Jenny posing in unders while Vastra works. Not... sure it's worth my O_o though. Just kind of dumb.

I'm not watching live after today. These commercials are awful disruptive. At least the breaks should be built into The Intruders. Next time there's a new Doctor, I'm going to plan to be in the UK.

Was wondering how long it would take to reference GitF. Sigh. The most eyerolly thing so far, so I guess we're doing well.

When did he find his outfit in between fake-ish!abandonment and rescue. We're denied a choosing scene? That bit of a black coat with the mirror and the tramp was it? [eta: I guess that's not his outfit... I was wondering about the tie]

Oh look, let's beat the GitF joke horse a bunch more times.

Capaldi is so good. I wish this were like, worthy of him. Why am I so bitter? I blame the commercials. I don't hate it. But hoped for more.

(Wrote that last part about 20 mins before the end. Still feel that way but worse).

About 20 minutes after it finished airing and I still feel very meh. Like, like... I've gotten old and the young hip thing doesn't appeal anymore. Like...I'm not getting it. Capaldi is GREAT. He absolutely is. I know this. He's obviously relishing the part.

But my god, the banging us over the head with the he's not young and 'I'm not your boyfriend' and that surprise Eleven? Cheap. And doesn't speak well of Clara at all. And the paradise at the end and the New Mystery! What the fuck ever. This has everything the anti-Moffs (which I am, but don't love to be lumped with them because some are batshit) in SPADES. Almost on purpose. The whole thing was wankbait. And that's just the ultimate in conceit (Which where did all that about Clara's narcissism come from?).

I don't know. It's not like in going to not watch. But I'm for sure going to bank time next time to not watch commercials. See if that helps.
