Well, I quite liked the introduction of Bill. The episode seemed a bit clunky at times and the story seemed a little odd but overall was solid.
Matt Lucas was his usual funny self as well. Looking forward to the rest of the series-Capaldi's last...

Gave it a miss. Like Sherlock, the series has become a kind of "look how clever we are!" fest by the writers, and is frankly tiresome.

Matt Lucas is a square peg in a round hole, and, much as I like Peter Capaldi (always have) he's dragging a dead horse up a mountain with this.

The Bill character just seemed to me like bits of other female companions slightly rearranged. They need to really go out on a limb if they want to shake up the whole companion thing. The overall story was okay.

I've regularly watched the Capaldi ones but have no memory of who Nardole is or why he's there. Frankly, I don't think he needs to be there anyway. He doesn't really add anything.

Like foxfeeder above, I like Capaldi a lot in pretty much everything I've seen of his. But I think he's right to bow out now, the show just feels stale and even he can't seem to freshen it up. I'll probably try to stick with this series, but can see myself drifting away from it like I did during the Smith era. If that does happen I'll make sure I'm back for the end, as I do like a regeneration scene.

I know they're about to have an overhaul in the sense that a new team will be taking over, but I think it would've been good for them to either call it a day or at least have a significant hiatus to seriously re-think the show.

Two things I personally would like to happen: stop this obsession with each series having to have the blessed "story arc", and get the intrusive music to shut the hell up for most of the show.

Well I loved the first episode, thought Bill was great and Capaldi as good as ever.

Maybe this was helped by the fact that I work in the building where quite a bit of it was filmed. Weirdly, the puddle was shot from two aspects, but (if you know the layout of the deck on which this was done) from two separate spots a few yards from each other. Screwed with my head for about 10 seconds...

Only 2 minor criticisms - unnecessary use of the Daleks (just for the sake of getting them in somehow), and why did she not mention who she saw in the photo of her Mum?..................

Speaking of photos, at least twice we were shown framed photos on the Doctor's desk. One was River Song; was the other one Dodo Chaplet? It certainly looked like her. And if so, why?
