Video of the Day:
HERE COME THE DRUMS
 


Doctor Who is back
 

Yesterday we watched the Series 8 premiere "Deep Breath".
It was a good introduction for Peter Capaldi as The Doctor.
While I enjoyed it, as a whole, the episode was just So-So.
It was not the acting, as that was the most solid part of the episode.
Capaldi was great as was Jenna Coleman. Plus Lady Vastra, Jenny and Strax were awesome as always. But the story was the biggest downside of this episode.
It felt either silly or too serious, but it never found a balance between the two.
The Plot was just another Steven Moffat cram a bunch of things into
the episode and end it fantastically
.
 

  • The Doctor dazed and confused
  • A dinosaur running around 19th Century London
  • The Clockwork robots are back, sort of
  • Great banter with Clara, Jenny and Vastra
  • The Doctor runs away in his PJ's
  • Clara and The Doctor have a spat
  • Clara talks down the Clockwork Robots
  • Vastra, Jenny and Strax to the rescue
  • The Doctor goes off to stop the main bad guy alone
  • The others battle the minor bad guys
  • A Skin Balloon
  • The Doctor either murders the lead baddy or convinces him to kill himself
  • Matt Smith calls Clara to tell her to like the new Doctor
  • Clara and The new Doctor decide to get along
  • A new mysterious villain named "Missy" is introduced at the very end

 

And one thing that really bugged me:
WAY TOO MUCH STEAMPUNK. Especially that new intro, ughh.
I still have high hopes for this season. This New Doctor has the capacity to be dark and mature. Something that Matt Smith never really did well.
Plus, this new villain "Missy", well I think it's The Rani.
And the end scene was the garden in her TARDIS:

On a completely unexpected note, Jenny (Catrin Stewart) looked quite goregous.
Check out pics of her and some other pics from the episode below.
I've also added some spoiler(ish) photos of Michelle Gomez as Missy I nicked from a WalesOnline article that features a lot of behind the scenes pics from the 12th episode of Series 8. So, watch the slideshow at your own risk.

Today Peter Capaldi takes over as The Doctor


I am looking forward to seeing how he plays The Doctor.
But I am hoping for less fantastical stories this season.
A more serious tone, but not too serious.
And no more fairy tale endings, please, can you do that Moffat?
No matter what, I'm in it for the long haul.
 

 

 


Here are some funny pictures just for you

Stuff


These past few weeks have been the busiest I've been all year.
While I haven't posted a lot lately, I have been working on expanding the
ihatepeacocks empire, or at least lining up some opportunities for us.
More on that in September, I Promise.

I did find time to create some new music.
