This is a general post to silence the naysayers. Lotza people are complaining about why Clara is struggling with the new Doctor despite having met them all. ​Well, to answer that, Clara has died onscreen before twice. Once as a Dalek and once in The Snowmen.

The Clara who's traveling with the Doctor right now cannot recall being a Dalek or being a nanny in The Snowmen.

Each version of Clara is an individual. That's what I've noticed from the series. Cuz the current Clara has no recollection of her former lives.

It is fair to conclude, then that the current Clara would have no recollection of meeting all the previous Doctors.

This is scifi, more importantly, this is Doctor Who. I've watched it since the day I was born. Even when I was 10, I always felt the companions were just there to ask questions. Be thankful that the underrated Steven Moffat is actually giving the companions depth and scope.

People just want everything, don't they?

And Peter Capaldi was mesmerizing.

Everyone keeps complaining about the mediocrity of the general story for this episode. That's just silly. Is it any worse than The Eleventh Hour, The Christmas Invasion or any other introductory new Doctor episode? The overarching story has never been the focus and quite right, too. The focus is on getting the audience familiar with the new Doctor. And in this episode, perhaps more than ever, this is extremely important. Why? We've spend nearly a decade with David Tennant and Matt Smith. Both of these actors were very young, dashing versions of The Doctor. Now, all of a sudden, the new Doctor is older than any other actor to take the role including William Hartnell. (Do your research, people. He is indeed slightly older than Hartnell was when he took the role).

So: Cut the Moff some slack. He has excelled at bringing controversial darkness of almost Valeyard proportions to the new Doctor.

What a risk!? And he pulled it off splendidly.

Stop criticizing without proper research. Capaldi has been a whovian for perhaps 10 years longer than I've been one.

Focus on the intention of this episode. Steven Moffat took a tremendous risk in casting such an old actor.

Can you honestly fault the way it was handled?

Moreover, please stop criticizing the Matt Smith cameo. That was inserted into this episode for us!

To make us accept that The Doctor is extremely old and that Capaldi should not be chastised on account of his age.

Steven Moffat realizes that Doctor Who has become a worldwide phenomenon in recent years.

I mean, answer this: what other television show has ever had a cinematic broadcast of an episode?

Please think about that. Moffat accomplished this with resounding success for the fiftieth and he's done it again for Capaldi's debut.

This is a television landmark.

So... Stop complaining. Right? Yes Moffat has had a few missteps along the way. But in all honesty? If he's got episodes he personally penned hitting cinemas across the globe? I think it's time to give him some well deserved credit.

Comment if you agree or disagree.

that is very funny, maybe having a new set of regens is not a smooth thing maybe it takes a bit of time to adjust to. I guess a bedroom to an alien would be a scary place

"So you've got a whole room for not being awake in? Well what's the point? You're just missing the room!" - Okay... that's a pretty good point!


"Don't look in that mirror, it's absolutely furious!" - And already we have some classic quotes from Capaldi! This is going to be brilliant!

Now, that ring he's wearing in the interview... I wonder if that's his personal one (wedding ring or some such) or the Doctor's signet...

First time I love Clara and this Doctor has got me more excited than ever from this one clip. I do hope there is more of this banter...

Love Peter admitting he was/ is scared to play the role... But I have a feeling he might just already have won me over with the few clips/ trailers I've seen so far and this one in particular.

My mom's gonna be super annoyed with me when we watch the episode for the first time and I'm quoting along with a bunch of the scenes. *clicks "play" one more time*

Well after seeing that I can honestly say........What is the point of bedrooms? We can sleep on couches! Really......such a waist of space!

Makes me laugh, seems to be the classic regime of having a newly regenerated Doctor babble on about nonsense, in this case why is there a bedroom with only a bed in it and you have a whole room just to sleep in. The Doctor has temporary anxiety issues.

I guess even the doctor is scared of his eyebrows! Or did I completely misinterpret that??

OMG Mr Cpaladi does an awesome job. I usually find it strange to watch the first episodes of a doctor because the new actor makes the character a little wrong somehow (It's not their fault, it my for being accustomed to the previous actor), but as soon as i finished watching this i was like: "That's the doctor alright".

I've been binging on past episodes literally all day preparing for this. The wait is bloody unbearable.

Ooooooh is that what the special content was? Tank you!!! I couldn't get the darn you tube game to work lol. First, it refused to show anything at the top, so I turned off Ad Block and tried again. Still couldn't see anything, lol... Finally after 3 or 4 tries realised that it was my anti virus safe browsing feature that was blocking the tracker lol... Turned THAT off, and ta dah! it appeared on my screen. BUT when I clicked toi expand it, all eager to get started, it crashed Chrome, so much so that I had to force close Chrome and it refused to reopen....... so I had given up lol. Thank you, thank you, thank you! LOL. :D

The Doctor didn't miss a beat when Clara and Jenny just fall into the room when the Doctor opens the door. I am just looking more and more forward to seeing this episode. Just another day to go.

We have the world tour that Peter and Jenna took on BBC America tonight. An hour long special. Something to pass the time until tomorrow happens.

@MikeFalino Do you think it could be the mirror from Family of Blood, with the little girl trapped inside it? One of the mistakes he wants to correct, perhaps?

I believe it is his real wedding ring. He refuses to take it off during filming. Chances are it'll probably be explained in show just in passing.

That's one devoted husband. Kinda sweet.

I was going to go with the little kid that just didn't want to go to bed and was using any excuse he could find.

@TheNightmareChild redecorated (You better like it) Maybe he just doesn't quite get the concept of a bedroom, because, let's be honest, we've hardly ever seen him sleep (esp in the new series, Christmas Invasion excluded). And maybe if you travel in time you don't really need it. We also know he doesn't really like to be cooped up anywhere for a long time with nothing to do, unless he chooses to - like after the Ponds left.

its a comment about his appearance silly!!

@The 14th Doctor Yeah it's his personal wedding ring. He said in an interview that he didn't want to take it off during filming because, with such a long filming period, the risk of losing it was too high and losing it would hurt him. Maybe they'll fit it in the show, no idea. We'll see. ^^;

@The 14th Doctor Yeah, I've heard that, too. I know the First Doctor had a signet like the Master's, but he gave it away in the last serial of season 1 (Reign of Terror). So maybe it's something like this again. The TARDIS is telepathic after all... We'll see.

@Exxilon5 @Kathrin Lily Franke I knew he was going to be great ever since I saw him in the Musketeers - he is Scottish after all. I just wasn't sure if I was going to like him. From what I've seen so far, I do, but that might change when I've seen more of him... but I really don't think so.

Did you get to see the Ultimate Companion and the Ultimate Timelord both hosted by Peter Davison? We can trade our exclusives for yours! Although I will be getting the extras anyway as part of my iTunes season pass.

It is called Doctor Who: Earth Conquest and shows at 9pm EST.

@ajcochrane1 Probably the main reason, but well, we don't know really, do we? And why would the mirror be furious? Seems a bit of an odd expression, even if he is having a post-regen crisis...

It likely is (in show) going to be 12's signet ring. After all with an older Doctor and two teachers from Coal Hill, the show is sticking to it's roots more and more for it's first year into it's second semi-century (if that's such a thing) so the signet rings return may be likely.

@A Friend of the Ood @Kathrin Lily Franke @TheNightmareChild redecorated (You better like it) I know companions do, some of them at least. But the TARDIS is telepathic she'll always give you what you need, so maybe the bunkbeds were because they thought they just wanted somewhere to sleep, but didn't specify what kind of bed. That doesn't mean the Doctor would necessarily know/ remember what a bedroom is, if he doesn't really need one himself. The zero room doesn't count, because there's nothing in it. You just relax and float in position.
