YES! I called that over a year ago! I knew they'd link him back to Caecilius! And you all laughed and said no and said it was a stupid idea and that continuity didn't matter - ha!

And if there's hope for Arya, there's hope for Jon Snow.

Next...Frobisher. Hmm. Maybe that one can be swept under the carpet.

It's still a stupid idea, and one that was only visited because some folks were very vocal online about there having to be a connection. Utterly ridiculous episode with more historical and geographical faults than I could shake a knackered sonic screwdriver at.

It will generate more questions from the casual fans who hadn't realised Capaldi was in an earlier episode, who will go back and rewatch it, and will now be wondering why Amy Pond was also in it!

Ha!!! The sonic specs came to grief, let's hope they stay that way.

A bad one, imho. It feels like he's only just getting started... :(

I feel the same. I also get the feeling is not completely Peter's choice though he's being a god soldier about it. I get the feeling chibnall and/or the BBC want to start 11 completely fresh. Peter probably heard that and being the kind of guy he is is going to respect those wishes desire wanting to stay on...

It's ran out of steam. :sleepy: I feel like I'm wading through the Christopher H.Bidmead era again. Shame about Capaldi going as his performances I could not fault at all.

That's a very good comparison. It's all 'serious science' that doesn't actually make sense, to appeal to the hardcore adult audience and balls to what the kids think anymore.

I *love* Capaldi, but he's had a shockingly bad era, with only a couple of stand-out episodes worth revisiting.

I don't think many people would disagree that Moffat's writing has gone seriously downhill since he became show runner. He wrote some fantastic episodes under Russell T. Davies; probably the best of the entire new series. But since he took charge, he's not been as good, and I think Sherlock has been a distraction for him too. That said, he has written some of the best episodes of his own era, mostly during the Smith seasons. I was a big fan of the anniversary special.

However, what concerns me is that Chris Chibnall's writing has NEVER been particularly good. I don't doubt that he's a Doctor Who fan, but look at what he's written. 42 - poor. The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood - it was okay. Dinosaurs On A Spaceship - a candidate for worst ever. The Power Of Three - I think we were all just counting down the days to Clara at this point. Maybe some people might have liked those episodes but they certainly weren't the same calibre as The Girl In The Fireplace or Blink.

So that concerns me. However, Broadchurch is excellent, so we'll see.

I think Smith's first season was my favourite run of Doctor Who ever. It went up its own arse a little the following year, but I was still really enjoying it. Things went off the boil when the Ponds left and I've been feeling decidedly 'meh' about the show ever since...

As for Chibnall - yeah, bit of a worry. He wrote Cyberwoman, which is one of the worst pieces of television I've ever sat through.

And then, there's this, which makes me hope he'll go for something off the beaten track as he always seemed keen to do...
