The Doctor Who world tour hits Rio... I am slightly worried at this point that the BBC is planning some sort of global takeover on Saturday. We'll all wake up Monday morning and have to send them 10% of our earnings and salute a foreign flag.

The current big scandal is... Not enough extras! The Radio Times is condemning the BBC for "short-changing" Doctor Who fans when it comes to extras for each episode.

Currently, each episode is getting a 15 minute pre-show, a half hour after-show, and a ten minute "making of" webisode. So each episode's extras are 10 minutes longer than the episode itself...

Maybe RT wants a 24/7 Doctor Who channel.

The "dark Doctor" has led the Beeb to repost all the darker moments from the series all over the place... RC, you and I need to sit down and watch Family of Blood. It's basically Doctor Who meets Maynard Gordon.

And, man, am I going to miss the uber-cuteness of JLC after this season...

She has boxer's knuckles.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Been reading the reviews of the opener. Critics love it, but fans seem lukewarm.

Yeah...I talked about that a few pages back when they all leaked. Deep Breath is universally hated by the fans. But ity a post regeneration episode. Doctors 3, 5, and 10 spent their first episode asleep!

Amazing episode! It had some terribly goofy moments, and some major flaws, but Capaldi brings this weird gravitas to the role...even when he's being super silly.

The whole damn episode is callback to classic who. All I could think of was Pertwee's and Baker's first episodes.

They're also not kidding about the dark Doctor... There's a fairly major moment that plays out off screen that leaves you questioning if this Doctor is willing to kill to get his way.

The comedy elements that weren't silly (the one-liners) were all delivered with laugh out loud ease... It was awesome. ("Nothing is more important than my egomania!")

Clara's changed, as well. The whole relationship has been skewed.

Peter Capaldi Is Already Carrying Doctor Who On His Amazing Shoulders

The lengthy review ends with what everyone is saying today:

But in any case, Capaldi totally steals the episode, puts it in his pocket throws it around, and then steals it again. Tons of moments like him speaking the thoughts of the dinosaur, stealing the horse from a carriage, pouring a drink while telling Half-Face Man that he's afraid he'll have to kill him... he's just perfect. And he's channeling Tom Baker's aggressively weird, baffled-but-rude performance, which is just the best thing ever.

Purely for Capaldi's bravura performance, I'm 100 percent excited for Doctor Who all over again.

Is France exempt from the Doctor Who saturation? It's on demand from here to Yemen...
