Doctor Who, Season 8 Reviews

Writing has Declined  vulko  2 star

I very much enjoy Peter Capaldi's work, but his tenure as the Doctor suffers from a decline in the writing Department - and it got to the point that I couldn't stand Clara. I tried hard to like it, but in the end found myself fast-forwarding through epidodes.

Mr. Loiter
The Best Dr Yet  Mr. Loiter  5 star

Impressed me more than Tennant or Smith’s first seasons. A+ The only boring episode was the Moon one, but the rest were good. Even the much maligned Robin Hood episode which was solid silly fun. Listen and the Train episode are all time classics.

Worst Doctor of the New Series  Kaizoku0506  1 star

I was really excited when I first heard that Peter Capaldi would be taking over the role of The Doctor from Matt Smith. While Matt Smith was a pleasant surprise, Peter Capaldi has been a longtime favorite. Unfortunately, this season has failed to live up to its potential. Some of this may be Capaldi’s desire to make The Doctor more “alien”, but a good portion of the blame must fall on the writers. This season had some of the worst plot lines I have seen in years. The plot seemed disjointed in places - our first introduction to Peter Capaldi as The Doctor leaves the viewer wondering if there was another Prequel episode somewhere that would fill in some of the gaps. While there is always SOMETHING of a gap between seasons, this is by far the worst I have ever seen. Much of this seasons seems like they were either running short and started grabbing 10-second ideas to fill time, or else they had a lot of 10-second ideas and weren’t patient enough to write them into full episodes. I can only hope that Season 9 brings some improvement.

EXTREMELY good price  VerifiedArianator  5 star

$14.99? For limited? Heaven.

Shut up!  itunesaddict2332  5 star

This was a great series. I started watching on Netflix and got caught up before series 8. Capaldi and Coleman are in my opinion the new Ten and Noble. It may take some getting used to the new relationship and Scottish accent, but don't let those get to you, this series is fun, emotional, exciting, funny, and so on. Capaldi IS the doctor, and you'll love it all. My favorite episodes were Listen, Mummy on the Orient Express, Flatline, and Last Christmas. Moffat will make you crazy, but you'll have fun watching.

Melody Pond (or Williams)
not even a word to describe how i feel  Melody Pond (or Williams)  3 star

for the doctor I feel disappointed. he seems unhappy and moody. I loved capaldi in the fires of pompeii and I know he's a great actor. I hated the finale. the whole making-the-master-a-girl thing was just plain awkward. i cant believe that they would kill off Osgood. she was my favorite character. as for Clara I can't connect with her and that's the point of the companions isn't it? they represent us. they're our tie to the Tardis. she's also shallow. as soon as the doctor isn't hot anymore, what does she do? thats right, she goes and gets a boyfriend! I miss 11 and Amy and Rory. she was good in the Snowmen and Asylum of The Daleks but this Clara is unreachable. it makes me sad because I honestly love Doctor Who. people will get mad at me for saying this but its my true feelings.

clearing things up  thebroomsticks  5 star

the reason everything is expensive is because these episode are as long as full movies. what do you expect? I throughly enjoyed this season (one of my favorites) and I can't wait until season nine

Stop Hating Capaldi  Kitty163  5 star

This season is amazing. I loved it. But people say that Capaldi is much too old to play the Doctor. Let's remember that the Doctor is 1200 years old. Peter Capaldi is only 55. Stop hating on him.

Awesome Actor, Terrible Writer  Legolas147258  2 star

Peter Capaldi is a great Doctor, and is natural in his role, but the episode quality is steadily going down. Steven Moffet's ideas are good and all, but he's not capturing the 12th Doctor.

Not paying for that  C0nky2273  1 star

I love doctor who. But $42.99? I'm not paying that. This is why I like Netflix. Sorry, just WAY too overprice. Unless this was the entire series from 1963 up to 2015, this is not happening.

Christmas not included  GaryGee  2 star

Even though it’s broadcast in the same season, the Christmas episode is *not* part of the “all episodes in this series” Season 8 purchase. “Dr. Let’s Figure Out A Way To Maximize Sales Scrooge” is more like it.

Whodunnit rater
Buy the ENTIRE Season Pass in NETFLIX instead  Whodunnit rater  1 star

I have been a fan of the Dr. Since the early 70’s and have seen all of the episodes. I really hate to say this but: Save your money, the entire season pass in NETFLIX is only 6$ so don’t waste your money on the iTunes season pass. Sure you get all the behind the scenes stuff, but the Christmas Special IS NOT included in this TV series. Unlike the BBC in England, BBC America releases the Dr. Who Christmas Specials as a separate “TV Season” in iTunes - at a huge price to the consumer - without any season number to organise it according to where it should be in relation to the rest of the series and then BBC-America and ITunes re-releases the entire season a while later with the special included, often at a discounted price! For that reason and that reason only I am rating it with 1 star.. otherwise the BBC UK (Not US) has done a wonderful job with this show - long may the Dr. reign supreme.

No Longer a Fan  spyridus  1 star

OMG! The show is ridiculous & juvenile now. This is by far the worst Doctor! Eccleston, Tennant and Smith brought youth and vitality to this show which helped revive it. Now they're going back to old, cheesy, poor-acting doctors. I am halfway through the season & keep hoping it'll get better....but it's getting worse.

A fantastic surprise!
Rachel Bonney  A fantastic surprise!  5 star

Capaldi has the anger and ruggedness of Eccleston, the obnoxiousness of Tennant and the quirky mannerisms of Smith. He is everything good about the past new series doctors in one! So excited to watch the rest of the series. Bravo in casting Capaldi! He is perfect and refreshing, bringing new stories and adventures to the doctor.

Great return and amazing entrance for the new doctor  Sunak  5 star

Stories are exciting, well written and the new doctor impose his style already. Good choice !

Potential never achieved  laroc52  3 star

I wanted so much to say that I loved this series, unfortunately I can't. I did like Peter Capaldi. I struggled with the attempt to make it a kids show or an extension of the Sarah Jane adventures. I didn't really understand what the purpose of Clara was and I despised the character of Pink. Iwas completely boring to have Missy return and complete nonsense to have the Doctor visit Robin Hood. I found the writing quite inconsistent. Maybe in the next season these identify issues can be worked out. I like the humour and the scary bits but please avoid the cutsyk kiddy stuff.

Fine Acting with what was given  MLKahnt  3 star

This season reminded me of some of the classic series - that some Doctors were not as likeable as others. Capaldi is a fine actor with what he was given as a character, but it is a far narrower character and one that is only really enjoyable when others need to bail him out. Clara is much more enjoyable as a person than his character, and following her revelations in The Name of the Doctor and The Day of the Doctor, you now have an incarnation of The Doctor that shows her no respect, even though she has shown the importance of her wisdom repeatedly. The other series are more enjoyable.

Arcus Cloud
"Capaldi " this is more like it !  Arcus Cloud  5 star

The best Doctor since Tom Baker and probably the best to date , it all went a bit odd after Tom Baker but now the series is better than ever and back on track .

Blah..  @LoganBourke  1 star

I pre bought the season and now wish I hadn't. What was suppose to Peter Capaldi's shining first season as The Doctor came across to me as a very poorly written disappointing season. After being a fan for 32 years it's really starting to loose me

Dude of 4000
Needs more monsters  Dude of 4000  4 star

This series is actually pretty good even though the eleventh doctor series was scary and good. But like how the title says it needs more daleks, cypermen, weeping angels and the silence, those are like the best monsters in the entire show.

Outstanding Turn of Events  lscot005  5 star

5 / 5 Dr Who Season 8 takes the doctor down a whole new path, dangerous not only to the character but to the show. Despite the risk the shows creators have done an amazing job creating a compelling, thought provoking and humours new regeneration of a timeless show.

Exceeds Expectations  DickTiPus  5 star

I Can't Be Bothered To Right A Review, So I Can With Say With Certainty So Far It's Been Great.

Best Dr in years!!  pocketscience  5 star

I grew up on Tom Baker and Peter Davison who were brilliant. The more recents ones I just couldn’t watch - they were too slick and smarmy! However Capaldi brings back the classic Dr I’ve been missing! Bravo! Awesome series so far!

First new episodes of Doctor Who I have watched in 6 years  LaFemmeNoiresque  5 star

I watched and enjoyed Christopher Ecclestone but was, to be frank, put off by David Tennant's mannerisms, charismatic though he is. Being a huge Malcolm Tucker fan, a return to an older, darker Doctor was made even more welcome with Peter Capaldi. And he's exquisite. He treats the characterisation entirely seriously, engaging in the humour and lightly playing the flirtation without indulging in camp. So much so that it is noticeable how much better he is than the (only occasionally) poorly written and (sometimes) clumsily directed elements of the show. I love his rapport with Jenna Coleman; hope she sticks about for longer than is rumoured. In short, season 8 is a total pleasure.

great series.  Rammstein_CC09  5 star

great series, Peter is doing great but just like with series 7, the show is let down by bad writing by Moffat. also, i just wish that iTunes would upload the episodes sooner rather than later after airing on TV. I’m overseas at the moment and hate waiting.

Captain Skurvy
Over priced - Doctor who is sliding  Captain Skurvy  2 star

Over priced - Doctor who is sliding. i withhold final judgement but if this is the arc of things to come i don’t think inspire of a wonderful fan base that this will help increase its sales or fan base . . . i think the writers etc have lost the plot . . . Im not against older actors i loved most of the older doctors but at present something about this new doctor does not gel, but as i say its a bit early to pass that sort of judgement but for an overpriced first episode this was the pits.

9 years in the making  Tsilcheters  5 star

Capaldi’s Doctor is what we’ve been waiting for ever since Christopher Eccleston left the series in 2005. The drama and humour are both darker and grittier than ever, the Doctor’s personality is subtly layered, and Series 8 is shaping up to be the one of the best that New Who’s given us. Also: the LGBT representation, as basic as it is so far, is certainly appreciated. Bravo, BBC!

Won’t Download  LennyS  1 star

Mummy on the Orient Express won’t download unless I purchase the episode, but I bought the season pass ages ago. When I click on the link from my email (received this morning) to download the newest episode it says that Time Heist (an older episode) will download immediately. Fix this Apple!!!

Marvin H.
Having trouble getting going with this one  Marvin H.  2 star

Got as far as the Kill the Moon episode, this season is just not working for me. Maybe next season will turn it around.

trouble with download  NBeans  2 star

The latest episode won’t download without me purchasing, even though I bought the season pass.

No liking the 8th season much at all  Azzura  2 star

I am just not enjoying this new season. Not liking the new doctor's attitude towards others....stories aren't impressing me or very clever like the past few seasons. I keep hoping the next episode will make me love it again but 6 have come and gone and still none are changing how I feel.

Trouble with download  TokyoDoctor  2 star

Itunes: I bought season pass and the latest epidose is not downloading. It is available, but the site is asking for me to pay for it? Please fix this!

SEASON PASS  Amberlinney76  5 star


Question  C3silva  5 star

Does it support Portuguese subtitle in case I purchase?

Peter Capaldi Nails It!  LemonFuzzies  5 star

At first I was ify on a new Doctor after Matt Smith. However Peter exceeds my expectations. He brings an interesting dark and serious undertone to the Doctor's personality that I havent seen too much of while on the same tolken can keep it funny. Worth the money for some good television.

Expectations Exceeded  ugottafriend  5 star

I was concerned that I would be disappointed in Season 8 with the drastic change between Doctors, but I am so relieved to say that I instantly adore Twelve and Clara! Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are absolutely glorious together. There is quite a variety of moods this season, from very dark episodes to very light ones and they balance well. You never know what's coming next! I am nearly 40 years old but I can't say enough about this show. I love it, and I am so glad that it is available on iTunes in affordable SD format. I'd give it 50 stars if I could.
