does anyone else even care about doctor who anymore? did that post circulating about how Capaldi was vetoing Moffat’s decisions convince other people to watch it?
Because I definitely saw no particular improvement in Deep Breath, except perhaps in the latter part of the episode.
I saw a lot of improvement in some aspects, particularly in the way the Doctor interacted with the other characters, but other aspects were still very… Moffat-like. Most of Vastra’s dialogue was fairly awful in particular.
I do see potential for improvement, though. In particular, the writing for the Doctor seems to imply “look, we know we’ve fucked this up a bit, so this is our attempt to make things better.” Obviously saying this is much different from actually doing it, but I can at least cling to a small bit of hope.
Anyway, it was only the first episode. I’m gonna give it a few more before I make any judgements on the new Doctor. At the very least, it wasn’t bad, just not impressive.
