    I’m a true Whovian. I have been watching it since 2005 and I have bought and watched over 70 classic adventures, and I just happen to like series 8. 🙂

    well adz what do you think listen will be like

  • Rollonregen

    Still watching in hope. Still watching as a Whovian who still enjoys the Tardis, Clara, etc, and who WOULD LOVE to be thoroughly enjoying it again. I wouldn’t abandon the Whoniverse part way through a series, however this will be the first series of the modern era that won’t be added to our DVD collection. And our little boys (who each have differing views on the 12th) are also miffed that the Character Building figures are so small!! – Anyone have any views on the small figures??

    No did not enjoy it AT ALL.

    Let’s just ignore everything else apart from one thing for now: did you enjoy it? Plot flaws and things like that do indeed matter, but enjoyability is the most important thing.

    Why am I still watching? Because I am a massive Dr Who fan, and therefore I really wanted to believe in series 8. So far I am so disappointed, but just hope that I may come to find an episode that will turn me back around. So far though – not even close to being turned.

    Did anybody else notice that Capaldi put a middle finger to Robin when he reached into his jacket to grab the spoon? I don’t think it was intentional but if it was, well done Gatiss!

    as for the fewing figures

    we got 9 million for the first episode witch was great for the ratings

    and the into the dalek got 6 million witch is not surprising as it was up against x factor premier

    Deep Breath: 8/10
    Into the Dalek: 9/10
    Robot of Sherwood: 7/10

    I understand your disappointment for this episode but the series so far has been great and if you have found the series so far terrible why are you still watching it?

    Agreed, hubby and I are hanging on my our fingernails hoping one episode will be good. So far a very disappointing series and we hate the new music

  • The Temporal Jelly Baby

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:20pm

    As the astronaut of death mentioned, overall, Deep Breath and Into the Dalek had very good reviews on here and other places on the internet. It looks like series 8 is doing well for most Whovians…though the viewing figures don’t seem to be doing that well.

  • the astroanut of death

    yeah the last two episodes have been very dark so I think it is time for a lighter one

    and next weeks looks incredibly dark

    so calm before the storm 😉

    We’ll this is one critic who was a fan, who now is SO disappointed.

  • Rollonregen

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:18pm

    Of course he’ll be there for season 9. Its a great gig, why wouldn’t he?? And Moffat wouldn’t keep him for only one season after ‘bigging him up’ so much, as that would make him look like a fool.

    ‘Twas ok. One for the kids…which is fair enough.

    the last two episodes have both got outstanding reviews from fans and critics

    Charlie I think you went a bit over the top there

  • Adz

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:14pm

    Sorry anonymous but ALL the episodes so far have been terrible. Nothing to write home about.

    Sorry, but I’m going to have to disagree with you there, Charlie. This episode wasn’t very good compared to others, but still enjoyable. Into the Dalek was brilliant and Deep Breath was pretty good too.

  • Adz

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:12pm

    Anonymous – I think your mistaken. Hope he knows when to quit.

    capaldi has not been let down!

    the only person who can say he has been let down is the man himself

    and if he did feel that then he would not have signed up for series 9 would he?

  • Adz

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:09pm

    Agreed with Charlie

    I do like Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. I prefer Matt Smith overall, but Capaldi is still very good and definitely feels like the Doctor too. As I posted above, this episode didn’t quite work, but it was still enjoyable and Into the Dalek was a brilliant episode (Deep Breath was very good but below my expectations). I wouldn’t be quite as harsh as you were there, Rollonregan, but people have different opinions. 🙂

    Looks great, I think it’ll be another chiller like Blink, lets just hope it can live up to it.

  • Adz

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:07pm

    Agreed also

  • the astronaut of death

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:07pm

    I don’t think it was “awful” it was my worst episode of the series though

    but I still think it was great i think it was good to have a bit of a fun episode after two dark ones

    and I don’t think this is the worst series at all actually I think it is on its way into being the best

    and it actually was funny

  • Adz

    September 6th, 2014 - 9:05pm

    Agreed withRollonregen – not liking series 8 at all. Sorry Capaldi but you just are not The Doctor.
    Scripts the poorest I’ve seen for ages.
