He's really been pushing the "more alien Doctor" thing (which is all part of his identification with Pertwee and T. Baker).

I'm all for it! The 3rd and 4th had a certain gravitas... And the humanizing of Doctors 5-11 always felt like a mistake, and would always clash directly with how the show was being handled (6's insanity, 7's "lonely god," 10's "lonely god redux," and 11's "lonely god redux redux.")

You can't have a dark and troubled thousand year old super-powerful alien creature who has seen all time and space and then put him in a bow tie and have him dance around and flirt with 22 year old women who have never been outside their city limits.

Lot's of love!


Quote
The Independent

“And exhale: thankfully, this new episode fully justifies the patience of those #keepmespoilerfree fans, determined to wait it out for the Steven Moffat-approved version. It is a perfectly paced, hugely enjoyable 80 minutes of everything you want from Doctor Who – action, silly jokes and enthralling sci-fi.”
The Telegraph

“This first episode of the new series, screened at a special event in Cardiff’s St David’s Hall, showed Capaldi’s Doctor to be mercurial, edgy and febrile… Capaldi channels a sort of nervous energy through his performances and the same was true here. You always felt that his mood could turn at any moment, and sometimes he did, his unpredictability crackling off the screen… This was a highly effective opener, showing that Doctor Who is still the most intelligent, ambitious and eccentric show on British television. In his unsettling, cerebral performance, Capaldi fits right in.”
The Guardian

“As the screening began, the audience of devoted fans shrieked and whooped with excitement at the prospect of seeing the new Doctor, one that both Capaldi and the show’s writer and director, Steven Moffat, has promised would be darker than Matt Smith’s version of the character. They were not disappointed.”
CNET

“Deep Breath is … well, we don’t want to spoil it, but it’s vintage Moffat: packed full of clever, quotable dialogue delivered with relish, breathless action, and scenes that turn on a sixpence from intense character drama to sinister suspense.”
South Wales Evening Post

“As far as first impressions go, we couldn’t have asked for much more: it’s funny, dark, scary and clever, as the Doctor and his companion, the returning Jenna Coleman, must reacquaint themselves with each other, while fighting off a bevy of stempunked bad guys at the same time.”
Wales Online

“Moffat has delivered the perfect blend for Saturday night TV – bags of action, drama and humour. There are nods to previous episodes and cheeky acknowledgements of previous Doctors, but done in such a way as to delight the hard-core fans while not distracting the new.”

So... All these fan made title sequences?

This guy got the job (allegedly). His fan made title (below) is the "inspiration for the new title sequence."

That's pretty awesome.

The Radio Times printed a synopsis/tease for each episode...and the season sounds pretty goddamned epic:


Quote
Deep Breath
"Who frowned me this face?"
A slaughterhouse restaurant and a buried spaceship lead The Doctor into a confrontation with a long-forgotten foe...

Into The Dalek
"Imagine the worst thing in the universe, and then don't bother because you're looking at right now. This is evil refined as engineering."
In the dying days of a bitter war, a beleaguered army has one last hope: a Dalek so damaged it has become good.  But can it be trusted? To find out, a miniaturised team, led by The Doctor and Clara, embark on a fantastic voyage into the Dalek itself...

Robot of Sherwood
"There's no such thing as Robin Hood!"
In a sun-dappled Sherwood Forest, The Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars. But with of Nottingham at stake (and possibly Derby), there's no time for the two adventurers to get into a fight about who is real and who isn't - which is probably why they do very little else!

Listen
"What's that in the mirror, and the corner of your eye? What's the footstep following, but never passing by?"
What scares the grand old man of time? What horrors lurk under his bed? Ghosts of the past and future crowd into the lives of The Doctor and Clara; a terrified caretaker in a children's home, the last man standing in the universe, and a little boy who doesn't want to join the army...

Time Heist
"Welcome to the bank of Karabraxos."
The Bank of Karabraxos is the deadliest bank in the cosmos - only a fool or genius would tempt to rob it. Fortunately, for The Doctor, he's both. But nothing even The Doctor has encountered can prepare them for the Teller: a creature of terrifying power that can detect guilt.

The Caretaker
"Human beings have incredibly short life-spans. Frankly, you should all be in a permanent state of panic. Tick tock, tick tock."
Clara has it all under control: her life at school, her life in space; her new boyfriend and her mad old Time Lord. Everything is humming along just fine, so long as everybody never actually meets. And then, one morning, just before assembly, Coal Hill welcomes a new relief caretaker with a Scottish accent.

Kill the Moon
"The little planetoid that's been tagging along beside you for a hundred years, which gives you light at night and seas to sail, is in the process of falling to bits."
In the near future, The Doctor and Clara arrive on a decrepit shuttle making a suicide mission to the Moon. Crashing on the lunar surface, they find a mining base full of eviscerated corpses, spider-like creatures scuttling about in the dark, and a terrible dilemma.

Mummy on the Orient Express
"Start the clock!"
Aboard the most beautiful train in history, speeding among the stars of the future, a legend is stalking the passengers. Once you see the Mummy, you have 66 seconds to live. Clara sees The Doctor at his most deadliest and most ruthless - and finally she realises she's made the right decision. Because this is their last adventure: it's time to say goodbye to the Time Lord.

Flatline
"Look, your home isn't going anywhere. And neither is mine until I figure this out."
Separated from The Doctor, Clara discovers a new menace from another dimension. But how do you hide when event the walls are no protection.

In the Forest of the Night
"D'you like the forest being in Trafalgar Square? I think it's lovely."
One morning in London, and every city and town in the world, the human race wakes up to the most surprising invasion yet: the trees have moved back in. Everywhere, in every land, a forest has grown overnight and taken back the Earth.

Dark Water / Death in Heaven
"You betrayed me. You betrayed my trust, our friendship, and everything I've ever stood for. You let me down."
In the mysterious world of the Nethersphere, plans have been drawn. Old friends and old enemies manoeuvre around The Doctor, and an impossible choice is looming over him.

Oh! And JLC tweeted, then quickly deleted the tweet, that Moffatt was planning to leave with her (which explains a similar slip by The Independent that named Gatiss as the new showrunner). Apparently we'll get a big infodump of news towards the end of the season.

That's pretty awesome.




Here's a cellphone-quality pirate of the titles from the Deep Breath movie premiere. Super loud, and just the people all screaming in the audience, so turn the sound off. Very few changes to the fan-made design. Very cool. Also, it's the version of the theme song from the 50th Anniversary trailer, which is cool.


And since I mentioned the 50th anniversary trailer!
