Doctor Who: Season 8 Reviews

While I love what Capaldi has done with the Doctor, I'm much less thrilled about the stories he's been featured in.

Introducing a new Doctor is always something of a gamble in the Doctor Who universe, but producers have made a savvy choice in Peter Capaldi as the 12th incarnation of the iconic time (and space) traveler.

Both the Doctor and Doctor Who needed clarity, and that's what this new incarnation represents. Peter Capaldi's Doctor is the minimalist, back-to-basics take on the character.

Is it fun? Of course it is. Lots of wild to-ing and fro-ing between Capaldi and Coleman, who have solid chemistry.

For a program known for its harum-scarum pace and keep-up-or-shut-up iconography, the Season 8 Saturday premiere of BBC America's Doctor Who opens slowly - even with the T. rex - and radiates a newly modern self-consciousness.

Capaldi's incarnation is hilarious from the off and throws some great one-liners courtesy of Steven Moffat.

Moffat's script masterfully manipulates audience expectation.

It's a skillful tonal balance that defines the best of Doctor Who, and exemplifies the ethos that keeps the series going strong, nodding to the past with all eyes on the future.

Here we go again. The Doctor has regenerated and, in his Twelfth's iteration, he's older, funnier and even more eccentric than before.
