My jury is still out a bit on Capaldi - I didn't dislike him, as such, but I think I need to see what he'll be like in a non-first episode episode, where he can just be the Doctor without the weight it being his first appearance.

The Matt Smith appearance was a surprise to me too! And I might have shed a tear or two as it made realise how much I miss him (although that also made me think it was a little unfair to Peter Capaldi, to overshadow him in that way in his first ep).

And I haven't ever really warmed to Clara either - she'd my least favourite companion so far in NuWho, I think.

True, the first episode of a new Doctor does tend to get overshadowed by the hype somewhat.

Awww! I think Matt Smith is possibly my favourite ever Doctor, including the old ones. I wouldn't necessarily say it overshadowed PC, but it did make me think that the show in general seems to be getting a bit too sentimental over the whole regenerating thing these days, what with David Tennant wandering around saying goodbye to all his companions one last time before the popped off, and now MS doing that handover. It all just seems a little unnecessary.

I think Clara might just be doing slightly better than Rose in my least favourite list of companions, but that is largely because I have what I admit may be an irrational dislike of Rose, probably as a counter-reaction to the excessive Rose-love in the fandom in general. I have no idea if that even makes sense...
