Daleks won the election in May led by Davros Camoron (not a mistype) and are now exterminating everything we value, NHS etc.

New doctor
Peter Capaldi is hard to get used to, after such a great performance by Matt Smith. He is hard to understand and seems angry all the time. I guess I prefer the younger, carefree personality of Matt Smith.

It's so good to see bad

Another 2 parter!
The world has changed since the old and ancient days cliff-hangers. I'm not prepared to wait a week between episodes. In a lump please. In a lump.

School Secretary
As a lot of the current Series is focussed on the School, it would be nice to have seen more of the School Secretary played by Michelle Morris, who many moons ago, played a leading role in "The Knock"
Memories   6:24pm Sun 28 Sep Report Abuse

Time Heist
Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman (the best actor/actress by far in the TV version of "Titanic") along with Keely Hawes should have provided a much better storyline for this episode. The writing nowadays is very poor, with no real plot. They are the same team behind "Sherlock" which again seems to be very popular but is nowhere near as good as previous versions. Sorry, but unfortunately I know I am in the minority.
Disappointed   11:52pm Sat 27 Sep Report Abuse

Absolutely Brilliant!
The amount of negative comments on this is astonishing. If there are idiots wasting their life submitting comments on shows they don't like, then so be it, but us fans with taste will enjoy this show as long as it lives. I've loved this ever since 2005, and I don't intend to stop now.
