I liked it. It was fairly funny. I do always try to keep an open mind whenever a new Doctor makes an appearance! I do like that he seems very different from Matt Smith's take on the character. Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed the 11th Doctor but with each regeneration there needs to be a separation between old and new.

I have never really connected with Clara, I don't dislike her but I wouldn't have been at all upset if she had also left the show. So I am apathetic at best. I think it is because she doesn't seem her own person more like an extension of the Doctor. Probably due to that whole impossible girl storyline.

I know what you mean about Rose. I like canon!Rose well enough but fanon!Rose tends to bother me.

Very excited to see where this season takes us!

It dos feel like they are consciously going out of their way to be very different. Not surprising considering they've gone from the youngest Doctor ever to the oldest!

I really enjoyed the team dynamic of having Amy and Rory (and frequently Rover) for the last few years, it was a real refreshing change from Doctor + young female from 21st century Earth. It's sad that they've reverted right back to type again as soon as Amy and Rory left.

I'm looking forward to the new series, and it was definitely a promising start for the new Doctor. Although it has, apparently, made me nostalgic for Matt Smith, so I've just rewatched Eleven's first episode this afternoon.

It would be nice of they could have a companion who isn't from 21st century Earth once in a while. He has all of time and space to play with, so why do his companions *always* have to be from 21st century Earth???? I was actually quite intrigued that maybe Clara would be from Victorian times when the Christmas special before last aired, but then she wasn't.
