    I went to see the first 2 episodes of the new series in Cardiff the other night at the BAFTA event.
    No spoilers but I will just say that they are brilliant. Everything I wanted in an episode. Bigger, more cinematic and the 2 parter works really well.
    They are writing for Capaldi much better now (and others tbh) and if this is the start of the series then it looks like it's going to be great.
    It felt like a series finale. Few epic and hilarious scenes.
    I met Capaldi afterwards as well
    It is of course better watching the 2 parter together but it finishes and picks up brilliantly for each episode.

    That actually makes me quite hopeful about the new season. I hated last season and it was mainly due to the focus being on Clara so I'm happy to see the show reverting its focus to the actual protagonist that is the doctor!

    Ooooh I'm excited! Even though I know it's going to be crap. I miss the Clara from Series 7 :sad: And.. I miss the fabulous Matt Smith (:love:) ... wish Moffat would just leave so Capaldi can shine...

    However, as in my consciousness it does not exist, it doesn't matter to me! :awesome:

    I am!! He talked about guitars, it was very cool and rather surreal lol.
    I think there is a video of the guitar question kicking about.
    Yeah, I've seen it


    I've got a pic of where I am in the audience.
    From the right, front row, 4 seats in. I'm from Scotland too but I had to go down for it (I am that sad haha) Attachment 461355

    Interesting prequel. It's a shame studios can't keep secrets any more though, we all know who is being discussed - don't mention as we may have people who don't know.

    Also seems Clara is going at Christmas and River Song is back (at which point in her timeline will be more interesting).

    David was by far the best :heart:

    Actually i really loved Matt Smith after a few episodes. I rather think that he was let down by Rory joining (can't stand these tag along characters) and the series moving towards drama rather than a fun jolly across time and space.

    I'd have liked to see he and victorian Clara but the writers ruined that and he's left.

    I was hoping Oswin would be the companion (someone on his level intellectually but that would have been like having two Doctors) but I suppose it was a well played twist at the end of that episode. I do think the whole 'Impossible Girl' thing was a bit bloated (and they still never explained how they escaped the Doctor's time stream) and the whole Danny thing ended quite poorly.

    I just re-watched The Time of the Doctor and yes, I really, really miss Matt Smith. He was the Doctor I would have liked to travel with. I find his final episode so sad, the music especially was gorgeous. That was also the last time I liked Clara, I found her so boring and not as pretty or fashionable after that. :sad:

    I just think Matt was a tremendous actor overall. Miss you, 11. :cry2:

    can you please edit this post and put the info in spoiler tags.
    I had managed to avoid this information.

    It would be really nice if people would stick to the rules. It's even in the title of the thread :sad:
