Ok, so this post is a little bit late, on account of the fact I was over at my friend's house watching the second episode of Doctor Who.
And I have this to say:
1) It was one of the best dalek episodes I've seen in ages, and probably the single best Davros story since Genesis of the Daleks.
2) I'll repeat: Capaldi's Doctor is the Doctor I've been waiting for. Like I said, he's like a mix between Jon Pertwee and John Constantine.
3) I've come to the conclusion that I really like the new Master. She was spectacular in this episode; no one will ever beat Roger Delgado, but Missy is the best Master since then.
4) I don't love Clara. But she's certainly a way more tolerable companion than Rose ever was, than River Song ever was, and than Amy Pond ended up being.
So yeah. Best season opener in ages.
