What Did You Think of The Magician’s Apprentice?

Now that the highly anticipated first episode of series 9 has been aired what did you think? Was it everything you had hoped for or not what you expected.

Where is the Doctor? When the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force, Clara needs her friend. But where is the Doctor, and what is he hiding from?

As past deeds come back to haunt him, old enemies will come face-to-face, and for the Doctor and Clara survival seems impossible…

    Master’s survival? Well, Master survived worse things than some pity laser weapon.It was probably some kind of teleport anyway. You should notice that beam, which killed Master had different color. Do you remember Planet of fire, where he was burned to ash?
    And of course, Deadly asassin…Master was thrown in eye of harmony in that episode…So I think it’s not really something that should bother you…
    I know it’s annoying, when people keep saying that. But please excuse my English.

    I’m afraid compared to Michael Wisher I thought Terry Molloy lacked the more subtle edges of Wisher’s potrayal and was at times way over the top (although that was also the writing) so as to make Davros just seem too much like a raving loony.

    Julian Bleach is for my money the best Davros since Wisher.

    Fire the sound mixer. It was damn irritating last season but one I hoped would be fixed. The background music drowns out the dialogue. If an episode was a meal from a restaraunt I would send it back as inedible.

    I am willing to give Capaldi a try, but it’s damn hard if you can’t even hear him.

    I would say Clara was the magician’s apprenyice, and I thing she is also the witches familiar. Remember, Missy essentially put Clara with the Doctor by giving her his number.
