I would agree with that. When you split a series down the middle and broadcast it 6 months apart, it's a bit unfair to expect the viewer to remember all the little subtleties that you've added in. I recognised the crack of time, but couldn't remember any more about the cause or solution as it was too far back since the episode aired.

Well, he's clearly still rocking Eleven's outfit so it looks like they're filming some very early scenes there.

Still no confirmation on the new Doctor's look - hopefully we're not looking at a frock coat.

Heh - I'd just logged on here to post that pic myself.

I quite like it. A bit quirky but not smack you around the head eccentric. Has a touch of Pertwee about it, I think, and a bit Teddy Boy as well.

Anyway, nice to see the Doc wearing Docs. I wear Docs. Docs are cool.

In other news, CEOs of bow tie manufacturing companies have seen a sharp increase in suicide rates.

The way the weather has been down here in Who HQ this month, I wouldn't have been surprised if they'd gone for flippers and wet suit.

I love it. I thought of Pertwee too, though as Capaldi says - no frills.

Also made me think of Colin... not his actual costume, but the one he wanted to wear...

Looks like a magician. Where's the top hat & bunny?

And - ahem - bow ties are still cool.

Well he's my Doctor too, but I think I'll like Capaldi a lot and am liking the direction the show seems to be going.

Thanks for the head's up, good to know! Earlier than I thought it might end up actually, so this is good news. Very excited to see Capaldi's take on the Time Lord...

Same here. Matt Smith is my favorite doctor. And my favorite companions has got to be to Amy/Rory, well more so Rory. Their last episode, "Angels Take Manhattan," I was a mess.

Though, I just saw Arthur Darvill do a parody of "Let it Go" on BBC Radio and it seems like he's tired of being just known as the guy on Doctor Who...kinda sad.

I'll be going out of my way to avoid those! I really don't want any spoilers before I see the shows

Looks promising, or at least as promising as a trailer full of tidbits can be. I do hope they take the series to a bit more of a serious, darker place, and I think Capaldi will be a good Doctor to do that, at least in comparison to the "human cartoon" that was Matt's Smith Doctor. Smith was fine, but Capaldi has the potential to bring a whole new spin on the character.
