Gutted, we are all surprised at how much we hate Peter capaldi! Was so looking forward to this! Its pants!

pictish Sat 23-Aug-14 20:23:17

I think he's great!

pointythings Sat 23-Aug-14 20:23:43

Nope, we're loving him.

'I'm Scots, I can complain about things'
'No point in both of us being cold, give me your coat!'

Oh yes.

Nerf Sat 23-Aug-14 20:26:01

How funny! The dcs and I are sitting with wtf faces on!

pointythings Sat 23-Aug-14 20:28:02

Be tolerant, they have a lot of startup to get through. You can't expect lightning plot development from the off. David Tennant's starting episode was none too coherent either, and Peter Capaldi does regeneration madness very well.

Okaaaaaaaaaay. I hear you. But the dc are all bored and chatty and stuff

revealall Sat 23-Aug-14 20:34:41

Way too many ideas for one programme.

We were confused and now we're bored. The mechanical people have been done to death also. And dinosaurs...

EvilHerbivore Sat 23-Aug-14 20:34:42

Nope, missing Matt Smith here too sad

pictish Sat 23-Aug-14 20:36:09

I haven't the faintest scooby what's going on like...I'm just enjoying his performance.

RJnomore Sat 23-Aug-14 20:36:35

We don't like it that much eithersad

Sticking with it though, perhaps we just don't like change.

This is the first Dr Who I've watched since the 80's.

Love Capaldi but I haven't the foggiest what's going on. The Victorian theme is a new thing yes? I've noticed that in trailers over the last few years. Who's the funny looking butler? Why are there aliens in the streets? Why doesn't the Doctor know what's happening? Where are the Daleks?

DH is not impressed, I don't watch it, but it's on. looks very unDoctor Who-like to me. I never did get the hype.

Is it time to call it a day?

LongFingers Sat 23-Aug-14 20:40:55

Pleasantly surprised here with the new Dr.

Nerf Sat 23-Aug-14 20:42:23

He just doesn't seem very in control and its all a bit boring

Captain my captain
Slightly unfortunate

Figster Sat 23-Aug-14 20:46:08

Don't speak for me op I'm loving him!!! It's great

lucidlady Sat 23-Aug-14 20:46:11

Give it a chance! Capaldi is a great actor.

Love him. Glad to see the back of Amy and Matt Smith.

GlaceDragonflies Sat 23-Aug-14 20:50:27

I haven't watched it, myself and the teenager were going to watch it tonight but I've deleted it as we have had a Bad Attitude and Door Slamming.
I need to go and say how brilliant it was but I value my life too much for that grin

I'm holding back judgement. I find it takes a few episodes to 'set' the new personality.

I'm missing Matt Smith, he had my attention straight away but I'm giving Capaldi a chance as I usually like him.

My 3yo on the other hand, is completely unimpressed and he's Dr Who obsessed and has been really looking forward to it.

My 6 year old wants to watch it. Do you think that I'd be wrong to let him and that it will traumatise him and give him nightmares forever?
