Doctor Who, Season 8 Synopsis

When a dinosaur materialises alongside the Houses of Parliament in Victorian London, the Doctor's old friends, the Paternoster Gang, are relieved when he arrives, seemingly to deal with the creature. However, they soon realise that the Doctor is the one in need of help; newly regenerated, extremely volatile and questioning his self-worth, this is a very different man to the one they last saw. The only person that may be able to help him is Clara, and she is still grappling with losing the Doctor she knew and loved.
A Dalek fleet surrounds a lone rebel ship, and only the Doctor can help them now. The Doctor faces his greatest enemy and he needs Clara by his side. Confronted with a decision that could change the Daleks forever he is forced to examine his conscience. Will he find the answer to his question - "Am I a good man?"
In a sun-dappled Sherwood Forest, The Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars. But with the fate of Nottingham at stake (and possibly Derby), there's no time for the two adventurers to get into a fight about who is real and who isn't - which is probably why they do very little else!
What scares the grand old man of time? What horrors lurk under his bed? Ghosts of the past and future crowd into the lives of The Doctor and Clara; a terrified caretaker in a children's home, the last man standing in the universe, and a little boy who doesn't want to join the army...
The Bank of Karabraxos is the deadliest bank in the cosmos - only a fool or genius would tempt to rob it. Fortunately, for The Doctor, he's both. But nothing even The Doctor has encountered can prepare them for the Teller: a creature of terrifying power that can detect guilt.
Clara has it all under control: her life at school, her life in space; her new boyfriend and her mad old Time Lord. Everything is humming along just fine, so long as everybody never actually meets. And then, one morning, just before assembly, Coal Hill welcomes a new relief caretaker with a Scottish accent.
In the near future, The Doctor and Clara arrive on a decrepit shuttle making a suicide mission to the Moon. Crashing on the lunar surface, they find a mining base full of eviscerated corpses, spider-like creatures scuttling about in the dark, and a terrible dilemma.
Aboard the most beautiful train in history, speeding among the stars of the future, a legend is stalking the passengers. Once you see the Mummy, you have 66 seconds to live. Clara sees The Doctor at his deadliest and most ruthless - and finally she realises she's made the right decision. Because this is their last adventure: it's time to say goodbye to the Time Lord.
Separated from The Doctor, Clara discovers a new menace from another dimension. But how do you hide when even the walls are no protection.
One morning in London, and every city and town in the world, the human race wakes up to the most surprising invasion yet: the trees have moved back in. Everywhere, in every land, a forest has grown overnight and taken back the Earth.
In the mysterious world of the Nethersphere, plans have been drawn. Old friends and old enemies manoeuvre around The Doctor, and an impossible choice is looming over him.
With Cybermen on the streets of London, old friends unite against old enemies and the Doctor takes to the air in a startling new role. As the Doctor faces his greatest challenge, sacrifices must be made before the day is won.

- Fantastic5 star

peter capaldi is great and as cranky and doctor who as ever. jenna coleman as Clara is just great. great to watch

- Writing has Declined2 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.

It is so much money I wish it was still on Netflix becuase it cost so much and they won't put it on Netflix because they just want money😡😡😡😡😡💩💩💩💩

- Worst Doctor of the New Series1 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 price5 star

$14.99? For limited? Heaven.

- If you get season 8 will you get season 9 and etc.5 star

If you get season 8 will you get season 9 and etc.

- Shut up!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.

- not even a word to describe how i feel3 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 up5 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

- Hello, Sweetie.5 star

I love the Tenth Doctor's enthusiasm, and I was thoroughly smitten with his charm from the moment he saved the world in his pajamas. But I would almost certainly knock David Tennant out of the way to get to the TARDIS in time to take off with the Twelfth Doctor. Capaldi's performance is ... well, brilliant and fantastic.

- Regret Buying full season3 star

I was first surprised at the extravagent price of the first episode, but purchased the full season because I was looking forward to Peter Capaldi's doctor. Pricing is usually set to cover a slight discount over single episode purchasing and this was set for 14 episodes. Season ended after 12 and the Christmas episode was not included (still debating whether to purchase it). There was very little opportunity to get to know the new Doctor, and way too much time focused on Clara and her "Mr. Pink". I had liked Clara, but this became tiresome and boring. This season could have been so much better. Hopefully the writers will remember who the show is supposed to be about next season. Normally a 5 star show, this season I give it three.

- Doctor who season 85 star

This season was absolutely fantastic, at first I thought it wasn't going to be great but whenever I watched it I instantly changed my mind, every episode in this season was phenomenal, and the season finale blew my mind, it was so sad and so beautiful at the same time, this season really made an impression on me, can't wait until the next season

- Yay!!!5 star

Peter Capaldi is briliant! I love these episodes! Can not wait till magian apprentice comes out!

- Dr Who Magic writer has lost his muse1 star

I have been a Dr Who Fan since the 70’s. I grew-up watching Tom Baker. I did not need great special effects or high budget sets. The writing made this show great along with the Doctors. I feel like the head writer and producer; Steven Moffat, has lost his interest in the show. It’s almost like he’s been spending so much time on his new show Sherlock Homes that he does not have time for Dr. Who any more. Maybe he thinks the show does not need him. The magic that was once there is gone. The writing feels disjointed. The stories don’t work or just feel rushed. There was only one good episode this season, which was a two part episode. Unfortunately the second part did not even connect to the first part. It felt like two different people wrote the episode without talking to one another. I hope Dr Who gets it muse back. If not please head the series before you do anymore damage to what was once a great show.

- Season 8 was FANTASTIC5 star

Here's a novel idea review the show, not whine about the price. If people want to read reviews they review the content, not how much it costs. The price is there, click buy or don't. Nobody cares what you think about the price, what your budget is. Buy it or don't. Maybe layoff McDonald's or Starbucks a couple times a month. Season 8 was fantastic, as is Peter Capaldi. I still like David Tennant the best but maybe if I get 3 solid seasons from Capaldi that might change. Matt Smith got REALLY BORING and in watching marathons on BBC I find his episodes the one I turn away from, especially towards the end. I too was getting Clara fatigue, but Jenna Coleman really brought it all together in Season 8. Of course better scripts helped. I do wish the Christmas Ep was included, but since it never has been, I'll not worry about it. I'm actually going to buy the Blu-ray discs of this not just iTunes (which is what I have every other season on (except season 7 I just haven't brought myself to buy it). Highlights of Season 8 are Listen, Time Heist, Dark Water and Death in Heaven. For me the only clunker was Robots of Sherwood. Capaldi's darker, mature take on the Doctor is so refreshing. I hope he stays on for many seasons!!! Buy Season 8 because it is GREAT!!!!

- Ripped Off?1 star

The Series 8 season pass doesn't include the Christmas special?

- Please no more Daleks !!!2 star

$40 for recycled plot lines - as the recent advertisements proclaimed: "No, Thanks!" The last season I buy. Maybe not the last one I watch, but no more paying $40 when so many other shows are less than half that... and iTunes encoding is grainy, low quality, and the sound is choppy !?! YouTube HD has better encoding !!! Amazon Prime 1080p HD looks as crystal pure as a BluRay disk... iTunes comes to a grim end, out paced by the likes of a book seller and a search engine company. Is the exchange rate that bad that $40 USD is needed to cover the costs for the BBC ? Quote: "I wish you just hadn't been a soldier." !?! This from The Doctor, the warrior who has beaten countless alien civilizations protecting humans? This quote from the BBC writers ? Hello, British Empire ! ? Without your soldiers (and America's soldiers) the BBC would be in New Germany ? Beatnik hypocracy from the BBC in The Doctor's mouth... revolting.

- 100% Perfect5 star

The first episode is a lot because it’s very long, but the rest are fine. Also, buy it all in SD, not in HD. It’s identical unless you stare at each pixel. And the plot is great, and Pete makes a great Doctor. It’s not a 2-part season, but it excludes the christmas special. I suggest waiting a couple months for all the HD episodes to appear on Netflix.

- Can't Wait for the Next Season5 star

To be honest this season of Doctor Who was pretty awesome! I'm kind of sad that the season is almost over. I'll be waiting anxiously for the next season to come out. I think Peter Capaldi is a great actor and jenna coleman had a really great personality when she was acting. I would definately recommend watching this t.v. show if your into scifi shows. :)

- Season 8, the latest in the saga3 star

In general, Series 8 is another good, strong Doctor Who season. Pater Capaldi is brilliant though the change, at times, from Matt Smith is jarring. “Jarring”, by the way, isn’t a bad thing in itself, it just is. The series gets off to a rough start and has some twists and turns but overall, it’s worth investing your time, and since this iTunes, your money. The series long arc isn’t as strong as say in series 5 or series 6 but it’s good, not awesome or amazing but good, In many ways this series feel as though Moffat was phoning it in a little. It’s very formulaic and Moffat is clearly, consciously working to be more like old school Doctor Who in many ways. The bright spot in this series is Jenna Coleman who, after some hit or miss episodes with Matt Smith, really comes into her own and makes this series much better than it would have been without her. Finally, there’s the unrelated to the content issue of the way BBC America and iTunes continue to distribute this content to customers. It arrives some twelve hours after being broadcast in the UK (six hours after being broadcast in the mainland US). Yes, you’ll get the Saturday episode Sunday morning at 3:30 a.m. It’s an insult to those of who buy these episodes. It also appears you won’t be getting the xmas episode included with this season which, while not surprising given the overall abuse of those of us who pay to watch this show, is still sad. And yes, you’ll pay for it and not be able to watch it on xmas. You’ll watch at 3:30 a.m. the next day. Lucky you, merry xmas. I never thought I would type these words but given all the changes and the continued abusive manner in which the show is distributed, I don’t see myself buying new series of Doctor Who. I’ll just wait to see them for free on Netflix or get them some other way.

- UHS Khartoum AV Club5 star

We watched In the Forest of the Night in our AV Club meeting. We really loved it. It’s scientific and interesting. It’s scientific because the TARDIS is “bigger on the inside” and it time travels. Also in this episode they talk about the important role of trees in the environment, and they also talk about historic solar flares. They include real life details like missing children and how kids behave during a class trip; for example, they are taking selfies and talking about the teachers. It is both realistic and a science fiction fantasy at the same time, which is what makes it so interesting. The relationship between Clara and the Doctor is complicated which adds to the intrigue. Finally, it is the relationships between the main characters that are interesting and compel you to watch it again and again. There are a lot of things going on in each episode, which makes you want to watch them more than once so you can figure it all out..

- Boring1 star

Ever since the last season, Doctor Who has been going downhill. The episodes are boring and forgettable.

- Ew1 star

This season was terrible! The only good episode was Robots of Sherwood.

- Wanted to like it2 star

Weakest season. Don't like Capaldi as the brooding Dr. Don't like his chemistry with Clara. Some of the episodes r awful (ex. The Robin Hood episode which could be skipped & u would miss nothing). The big afterlife tease throughout led to a weak plot twist at the end. Some episodes were so boring I was forcing myself to watch them cause I'm a Dr Who fan just not a fan of this season. To each his/her own. I'm sure some loved it.

- Awesome!!!5 star

It's great to watch Doctor Who on iTunes and I love love love Peter as the Doctor.After Tennant he is my favourite Doctor.

- Good season4 star

It is by no means David Tennant and/or Matt Smiths seasons. Capaldi does well, however, Jenna Coleman saves the show! I hope they choose a different actor for the doctor. Still, I am happy I got into The Doctor Who, because there is no other show out there that garners a fan base so wide in age. Kudos!

- Strong female lead1 star

In the first episode the doctors script had him Acting disoriented and illogical, the strong lead character Clara/Sarah, was constantly correcting and arguing, leading the doctor character. 2 The second episode again featured Clara leading the doctor around and telling him how to behave. I did enjoy the second episode more than the first, negatively -it did consist primarily of war, violence and constant fighting. 3. The third episode again features the illogical doctor Spouting incorrect nonsense while the lead character Clara/Sarah' straightens out his thoughtless nonsense. Again with a contrived story. 3.5 Death in heaven episode Is shrouded in religion, superstition and reincarnation of the dead. The end of the episode leaves us wondering if The Doctor is going to permanently go back to Gallifrey Or if the suddenly appearing Santa character will get him to Go somewhere else. Fin. 4. Stopped buying Dr who Until BBC gets a script Not pointed at the 12 year old audience only. -$

- Season finale?!!!!5 star

I bought the season pass and I'm enjoying it so far all I need is the last episode to be free for season the season pass because it doesn't seem fair to buy the last episode for the ones that bought the season pass because I've been checking since Sunday morning and nothing has changed.

- Death in Heaven?4 star

This episode is not showing up in my library, just the extra. I bought the season pass, but iTunes is trying to make me pay. What's the deal? I've been happy with the season so far, but on a Sunday afternoon, I need my Doctor!

- Review of the entire season3 star

I decided to write the review after watching the entire season. My favorite episodes of the season include ‘Listen’, ‘Time Heist’, ‘The Caretaker’, and ‘Mummy on the Orient Express’. Those episodes made the season worthwhile. Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, the Special Effects, and the music was fantastic. I even somewhat enjoyed Missy as the Master, though I was hoping more that she would be the Rani. The writing, in my opinion, let me down, especially after the previous seasons with Matt Smith. In fact, every time there was a reference to the 11th Doctor, I became very nostalgic. Though Peter Capaldi is great, I can’t seem to enjoy this doctor as rapidly as I did the previous doctors. For example, Matt Smith and David Tennant captured me in their first episodes, and Chris Eccleston had me by the second episode. Paul McGann, in his Webisode, made me wanting more (I really wish they would do the honor of tying in the 8th doctor a bit more…Paul was great). I was even drawn into the War Doctor, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th doctors immediately. My problem has more to do about choices in writing. For example, though Danny Pink is a relatively enjoyable character to watch, his apparent disrespect for officers (though perhaps justified) has questionable ethics to authority. Also, if we are going to explore Bible ideas (paradise, afterlife, and things of that nature), let’s have some accurate Bible knowledge. I also thought that the timeline with Danny Pink just got a paradox (see ‘Listen’), unless Clara is pregnant…which then leads to other moral issues, or there will be a future explanation in which maybe Danny Pink comes back (like Rory). I did not enjoy Clara and Danny’s relationship because of their recent comparison with Rory and Amy. Rory and Amy in my opinion was fun for several reasons. They did love each other; they had their problems, but in the end, they chose to be with each other and proved it with many sacrifices. Rory seemed to get better with every episode, and when he was touched by an angel, I felt emotional at the loss. Clara, though a great companion, I felt was not shown the proper respect in the fact that she had saved all regenerations of the doctor by traveling through his timestream. Also, though I think ‘Flatline’ was a fun exploration as Clara playing the role of the doctor, she is not the doctor. She is a companion, and the doctor needs a companion as elegantly explained by Amy in ‘A Town Called Mercy’. I think the final episode was a let down. No great ‘out-thinking’. I felt the doctor’s role was almost questionable. Danny’s face did not need to be so drastically altered as a Cyberman (I could not take him seriously). No relevant role for the kid whom Danny killed (wouldn’t that had been great if they had partnered up some how). Stewart’s assistant’s death, in my opinion, was needless. I liked her character since the Day of the Doctor, and to see her die seemed unfortunate. Maybe they can find a way to bring her back. Finally, where is River Song? At then end, I feel the doctor’s alien attributes best serves him off the planet earth…so I’d like to see episodes that put the doctor in more alien settings with only sporadic visit’s to earth (like in the Caretaker). At least Lethbridge Steward got his salute (finally showing some respect to officers, and well-deserved).

- Why can't I get the season finale?!5 star

Love the season but it's showing I have to pay for it after I got the season pass! Please fix this iTunes!

- Show gets a 4 Apple Fails Again4 star

Wheres the finale Apple - why bother paying you people if you can’t supply the service correctly

- Dr who 85 star

Listen folks quit whinging I agree that adding the behind the scenes should be counted as episodes,I also remember that the earlier Drs,I am speaking of Ecclestone up to early smith,we had more programmes per season,but due to the Dr who becoming such a world hit,as the Beeb Has to make enough money to support other programmes that need to build audience such as Ripper Street and the Tories continuously cutting the grants they have to charge a little more and due to the cutbacks a lot of truly great programming was lost.

- Great5 star

Guys calm down about the pricing. It's an English show so the prices are just directly translated from what people from the UK and other places have to pay to what we have to pay. But the show is great and Capaldi is a great Doctor!

- Missy3 star

Can't wait for the second part of dark water! And really hope missy was lie ing when she said who she was

- Downloading wrong episodes1 star

I bought and clicked to download Dr. Who Season 8 Episode (13.) "Kill the Moon" full episode but it downloaded number 16 "Doctor Who Extra: Mummy on the Orient Express". I'd really like to download what I bought, please. Fix it.

- It won't give me my episode1 star

I purchased the season pass and I got all the episodes until last week. After the episode came to iTunes it's telling me to pay $2.49 for that episode. And then last nights episode came out and did the same thing. And I payed for all 14 episodes with my season pass! But it's not giving it to me!!!!😡

- Go SD version- season pass4 star

Got SD season pass, no complaints. Airs Saturday, downloads Sunday. Quality just fine, 720p plenty good for my viewing. This new Doctor seems darker, moodier and plods into solutions rather than knows the solution. The writing this season at first not meeting my expectations but the recent introduction of "Missy" has me interested but I admit the forest in London and the train in space were different and entertaining. The underlying theme to this season seems to be about someone that has been minipulating the Doctor and Clara which is now pointing to this "Missy", can not say more, spoilers! So far worth the money in SD.

Of course I love its Doctor Who

Best of the season!!

- Love the Doctor, despise the pricing5 star

I love these episodes but a 10 dollar difference between SD and HD is ridiculous in my opinion. Whoever determines the pricing should be sent off to Skaro! I’m going to have to wait for a discount on this one. Love the episodes. Peter Capaldi is awesome. I loved Matt Smith and David Tennant, but got tired of the ‘romance’ aspect to the story lines. This Doctor is all business. “No flirting on the TARDIS” with this Doctor and I love it! A bit of flash mixed with a clean mouthed Malcolm Tucker sold me. Can’t wait for the next season with him. Flash that red, Capaldi! Change that sonic though to make it your own. :)

- Click SD5 star

If you look to the left of your computer screen you will see a two rectangle boxes, one will say HD on the left and on the right it will say SD. If you click SD it reduces the price to 1.99 and it doesn't change the picture quality. I wrote this because everyone is complaining about the price and because you're missing out on a really great season

- Blaaaa2 star

pricing issues or not - this is a so-so season of WHO. The actors are great but the stories are horrible. I'be been a HUGE fan of the series up to now - but the last season with Matt was a bit off and now this season is worse. Wish I hadn't bothered with this one.

- Solid5 star

I waited for the two-thirds mark to write anything about this season, and I’m glad I did. The first quarter to third of Series 8 was weak, with too-frequent and awkward hint-dropping at series long story arches. Since then, however, the show has gotten progressively better with well put-together, more procedural episodes. "The Caretaker" and “Flatline", as well as “Mummy on the Orient Express" were particularly to my liking, while episodes like “Time Heist” and “Deep Breath” were weak, and somewhat wishy-washy. I’m not a fan of the Jenny/Strax/Vastra trio (once again featured in “Deep Breath”) as they really serve no purpose to the story at this point, and sometimes even distract from it. It comes across that Jenny and Vastra’s purpose is merely to push various writers' political agenda, which is fine in real life, but please: keep it out of my escapism sic-fi. Poor Strax is an embarrassment to the Sontaren Empire we all remember from Series 3 and older episodes. Those guys weren’t FUNNY! His was a race of endless conquest and honor! If you want to have a comic relief, they could have picked some other race. Anyway, sorry that that random tangent, but it really bothers me when film in general pushes ANY kind of political agenda too far, and senseless comic relief isn’t even that funny. That being said, I look forward to the final quarter of the season. I’d give it a 4.5/5 if iTunes would let me. Looking forward to see where this “Missy” thing goes. :D

- To Earlangus5 star

Sir,your complaint has been repeated about every actor to travel in The TARDIS since William Hartnell ended his journey. The magic of Doctor Who is and has always been that with every regeneration he is a completely different man,with new a new personality,quirks,way of speaking and reactions to his companions,friends,and enemy's. When Patrick Troughton began as the Second Doctor fans were expecting a cantankerous,stubborn Grandfawas forced into not only exile but into his 3rd regeneration as well. It was quite a while until Mr Pertwee r and what they got was a whimsical Flute playing clownish man with great emotion and an especially protective,caring Doctor to his companion(fans in Britain were irate that a former children's show host was chosen to play the Doctor and it was feared that the show would get axed.). Then Jon Pertwee(who by the way is who Mr Capaldi is honoring with his take on the Doctor,not William Hartnell). Not only was The 3rd Doctor radically different from the previous but due to the story dictated exile on Earth for most of his run but he also had to portray the Doctor as a complaining,constantly upset Doctor because he did not only get forced into exile by the Timelords,have his TARDIS taken,having to tearfully say a quick goodbye to his two longest companions,but he was also forced to regenerate against his will. With every Doctor there are changes,some well recieved others not so much. People as a majority hated K9 at first,feelings were that the BBC was trying to cash in on the STAR WARS craze that year by adding a robotic canine version of Artoo Detoo. They've hated it passionately when Roger Delgado was replaced by Anthony Ainly as The Master,and now Mr Ainly is considered the hands down favorite Master of the series. The magic of this one of a kind show is also that everyone has their favorite Doctor and they will debate about this subject for another 50 years and that is amazing. If you would like to see some of the earlier Doctors you should check into getting a subscription to Hulu+ . They have a large selection of episodes,more then Netflix,and it covers Doctors 1 through 7. It's only 7.99 a month and you get every episode of most current show's current seasons plus tons of old favorites like Hill Street Blues,seasons 1 and 11-27 of Survivor in in their entirety. I love it and was amazed at how many Doctor Who episode arcs there are for each Doctor,with Doctor 1 having the least due to most of his episodes were lost. You might find it interesting to see the first appearance of each Doctors arrival as well as his regeneration arc. Watch how differently each actor portrayed the Doctor from the beginning and then when he was getting ready to pass the torch. The doctor will always change,evolve,and keep us watching till the end of all space and time. Goodnight my fellow Whovians and remember if you see a statue of an Angel in your path learn to walk backwards. Lol

Legolas147258 - Awesome Actor, Terrible Writer2 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.

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 instead1 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.

spyridus - No Longer a Fan1 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 Bonney5 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.

Sunak - Great return and amazing entrance for the new doctor5 star

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

laroc52 - Potential never achieved3 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.

MLKahnt - Fine Acting with what was given3 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.

nicknicknicknamenicked - Best series in years4 star

Okay, so the story with the Moon Baby was kind of awful, and the one with the tiger was even worse, but otherwise this has been one of the best and most consistent series of Who in years. I feel like I can actually watch the episodes on their on merit instead of getting bogged down in whether or not the companion is pregnant with the Doctor's wife etc. I loved Eleven, but hated his arcs. Twelve is just as enjoyable to watch and, so far, there are no bizarre plotlines to take away from that. SCORE!

grpime - Have to pay for an episode after purchasing season pass5 star

Bazinga Brony - The Twelfth Doctor5 star

So far, this new season is amazing! Just absolutely amazing! But as much as I'm lovingthis so far, this new Doctor is a big disappointment, considering the eleventh and tenth Doctors. And the announcement of Clara's departure is a buffer, as well. But everything about it so far has been pretty awesome! I would definitely recommend this season.

132154657 - Excellent British TV5 star

I love Brit TV, not everyone is young, gorgeous with perfect teeth. Quirky, off beat humour and the new Dr plays it to perfection. Plays off old enemies, new ones, and relationships very well.

Colgan Girl - Not what I expected....4 star

At first it's a new doctor and he doesn't flirt. I was unsure at first with this unexpected change however I find with a mature looking doctor he is very youthful--which is a crazy development. I enjoyed the rapport that Matt Smith had with the character of Clara, but this change is pleasant as well.

Paranuik - Bring back the wonder and adventure2 star

Where’s the sense of wonder and adventure? With all the doctors since the 2005 reboot there has always been a sense of wide eyed wonder and an adventurous spirit. This new Doctor is as cross and angry as his eyebrows. And what has happened to the impossible girl? She’s the impossible companion now. Not enjoying the new Doctor or his old companion.

It was super cheesy beyond belief 2. I can't understand what the new doctor is saying with his strong accent 3. they keep mentioning lizard-human marriage 4. the story made no complete sense... it was very poor 5. a dinosaur in London would DEFINITELY ALTER TIME IN DRASTIC MEASURES, THE DOCTOR SHOULD BE AWARE OF THAT!

geeber - Excellent beginning to the 8th Season5 star

Good first episode. Interesting to see below some people complaining about the Doctor being old. This first episode addresses precisely that kind of bigotry.

asmcc - First episode2 star

Something was very disjointed with this first episode. Also I think if they have to make an episode about explaining why the doctor looks older than the previous one, then - right there it should be a warning sign. A bit like, if you have to explain a joke, then it isn’t properly funny. Without Jenna Coleman, this episode would have had little strength. I do want the new doctor to succeed, but for the first time since it’s return, I’m a little worried about a new season.

lscot005 - Outstanding Turn of Events5 star

LaFemmeNoiresque - First new episodes of Doctor Who I have watched in 6 years5 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.

Rammstein_CC09 - great series.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 sliding2 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.

Tsilcheters - 9 years in the making5 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!

Tharglu - Great value5 star

While the first episode may be $9.99 I did the math and it makes all next episodes $2.50 each, cheaper than what they would usually be, plus you then get the four interviews. Great value for a great show, plus it's good to see doctor who getting with the modern times and releasing episodes to buy as they appear worldwide.

lulucyloo - arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr5 star

Gritree - Loved it5 star

Loved it, capaldi is my new favourite, move aside mcgann and hurt (yes, hurt), and to all those out there who aren't watching anymore because he ain't young, I just can't fathom why u wouldn't, also, why is the episode so expensive when it's the same length as the day of the doctor which is cheaper. One more thing, to the stupid idiots who were at the movies watching it, " you've redecorated, I don't like it" didn't start with tennant, it started with trough ton, and anyone who has stopped watching the show good. Cause now we know who the true fans are and we don't have to deal with all your stupid whining about smith being gone, no matter how much I liked him, I couldn't wait for him to leave to get rid of all these pretenders. A older doctor is the best direction for the show at the moment, and capaldi is the best choice, so anyone who wants to start the show, capaldi is definitely one of the best to start with and I think will be a cross between tom and Colin baker. Thank You

KhyeP - Overpriced2 star

While I am a massive Doctor Who fan and will fork out the $9.99 to buy the first episode I am incredibly disappointed at the price. iTunes and the entertainment industry in general all complain about the effect that piracy has on the industry yet the ridiculous prices of shows, music and movies drive people to torrent them. I am beyond frustrated at the fact iTunes feel entitled to run the show at this price and feel it will greatly impact their sales in the future.

GeorgeHC4 - Capaldi shines5 star

Peter completely steals the show - he is bound to become the definitive Doctor. His interpretation is infused with such knowledge and intricacy that it's immediately apparent that we're in for a treat. This Doctor is colder, fiercer and more dangerous certainly, but also deeply passionate and wonderfully sarcastic. Jenna Coleman is given so much more to do, and she really relishes in the renewed, slightly cautious friendship that develops over the episodes. The standard of writing has improved, too, though it's largely down to Capaldi and Coleman's sparkling chemistry that the show feels fresh. This series could potentially go down very well indeed, and with Peter as the new face of this show, it's hard to see it not working.

tabbycat1973 - Season 8 is amazing 😊❤️😊5 star

I loved season 8 and at first I didn’t know what to make of Peters Doctor and then as time marched on I really loved his Doctor especially when his funny, kind and something a bit scary at mysterious especially at the end of episode 1 but there we go. I also loved the fact that at the end of the episode he is still with Clara and she gets a phone call from a special someone which bought me to tears, however my favourite episode from the season was episode 8 because it had an emotional ending and a lot of secretery was involved in that episode which never got explain but that’s Doctor Who for you it always keeps you on guessing.

Jimbob2134 - Great series4 star

It's been a great series so far with new doctor. Peter Capaldi is certainly going to end up being one of the greats, shame about a. The price of the series pass, and b. The way the videos have been sorted, with the episode being the first and followed by the extra, I thought that was what the use of 101 onwards was for. The filing system for doctor who series past series 5 has gotten a bit of a mess...

Domdjd - Far enough into the series to review?5 star

We have had eight episodes now, and the twelfth Doctor's tenure is now almost fully established. I was skeptical about Capaldi playing the Doctor when it was announced and the episodes so far have done little to allay those fears. Capaldi hasn't got the youthful exuberance of Smith or the charm of Tennant and Ecclestone. He is however quieter, more subdued. This benefits the show greatly as other characters are able to shine. Jenna Coleman has, in my eyes at least, established herself as the best companion that the Doctor has had since the show's return in 2005. Guest stars such as Hermione Norris and Frank Skinner have had room to really shine. Barring one or two misfires, the writing has been a huge step forward. Not since series 5 have we had such wonderful story-telling. Into The Dalek is the first time something original has been done with the Daleks in my lifetime (I was born in '87). Kill The Moon was brooding and tense. The Caretaker was fun and light but full of character development. The only real let down has been Gatiss' Robots Of Sherwood, which missed the mark completely. Gatiss has done some incredible work recently on Sherlock and with An Adventure In Space And Time, but his Doctor Who work has never done it for me. Although I usually find that Gatiss' scripts are full of big Ideas that are poorly realised on screen, I found that I didn't like the characters, the plot or the dialogue of this year's contribution. Overall a good series that feels like it is preparing the groundwork for the coming few years... whether that future includes Capaldi and Coleman is yet to be seen, but there is plenty of room for a rallying finale. Five stars awarded due to tone, overall quality of stories and the amount of risks that have seemingly paid off so far.

Ionicle - Capaldi as the doctor4 star

This is a massive departure from previous seasons of doctor who and is yet linked to them in so many ways, the doctor has changed, he no longer has the boyish charm and slapstick humor of matt smith, he now has the essence of a man who has lived for hundreds of years (ala david tennant) but a deep darkness to him (ala chris eccleston/john hurt) but he seems to nor share any of their types of humor, he is brilliant but cold, inspired but sad, grand but blunt, he will take some getting used to...

-pb- - The Doctor will see you now.5 star

He's back and this time he's...old? After a reboot full of younger Doctors, Peter Capaldi is a breath of fresh air. The new series is three episodes in, the BBC releasing episodes on iTunes a week after they air due to them being on iPlayer first. While some have complained about price, this set is good value when you consider that there are a whole bunch of extras and a behind the scenes programme for every episode, too.

timetraveller_0 - A new Doctor5 star

Capaldi brings elements of a new perspective to the Persona of the Doctor, while somehow making me feel nostalgia for the Pertwee era. His take on the character is darker, less reliant on the opinion of others and has a grim humour that will appeal to much older audiences. I hope the skilful writing and continued character development continue throughout his new series. As for the price… seems expensive, but nobody is going to make you pay if you dont want to..

D Cook - Pricing issue? Lobby the BBC5 star

At £4.99 per episode, more expensive than episodes of Sherlock and with a shorter running time, I had to ask Apple about their pricing structure. Apple confirmed that it was the BBC who set pricing and release dates. With episodes available for £2.49 on Amazon Instant Video, it's apparent that the BBC are squeezing money from UK based iTunes users on account of it being the most profitable digital store worldwide. My suggestion would be to refrain from purchasing this series to show the BBC their extortionate pricing model doesn't work, and to register a complaint on their website.

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.

ugottafriend - Expectations Exceeded5 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.

There will be one if all of you guys are wondering

Ruben_C - Listen5 star

Best episode so far, the 4th of Season 8 has all in it: deep terror of the unknown, yet a lot of joy and perspective about things around us. The producers always do this with new Doctors: they build up the character from it's ankles but once in a while they offer a great episode so early in the development of the character... Listen is this episode

American Shorthair - Same old availability delay4 star

I'm not going to complain about the price, if you're too cheap, like me, to have cable then once in a while you have to pay to get what you really want. What really gets me though is that I have to wait until the next day to get the new episode. What the heck? Apple should insist that these episodes are available immediately at airtime/cable time. This is the reason I hardly every buy season passes. Nothing like going to work or school the next day and people asking, "So what did you think?" Answer: "Well I paid for it but I didn't get it yet"


Horsepucky. I love sf, but this is insane. Not going to purchase. Not a chance. BBC, you are losing your mind. Go see the Doctor.

Gary Robinson in Bangor - Money5 star

Don’t pay attention to all the reviews that say it costs to much; they didn’t pay attention and realize that only the first episode costs that much, which is understandable for B.B.C.

Don't mess with me - Listen5 star

The most original and heart-felt, inspiring episodes about the Doctor and his invisible companion and demon.

Mmarshfairc - Great new Season5 star

Also, the reason deep breath is $5.99 is because it's almost 2 hours. Anyways this seems like a great new introduction to doctor who. I'm not going to buy it yet, I'll wait till more episodes are added, but I'm excited to see how it continues so far! I defiantly recommend this!

Cog3125 - Great season, sneaky pricing?4 star

I am delighted to report that for the first time in a long time, I find myself actually liking a new Doctor without the usual introductory period. Normally I go through a cycle where I feel "No way, this guy isn't the Doctor." Then two episodes into the season I feel "Alright, let's give him a chance." And by the time the mantle is passed I can't imagine anyone else in the role and start the whole cycle over again. Peter Capaldi has actually broken this traditional cycle to some extent. He is an intriguing mixture of the "new" Doctor Who and the classic Doctor Who, which has hooked my attention much earlier than I expected and the sudden change of character dynamics between the Doctor and Clara has been very interesting to watch. My one complaint about the series is one of pricing. I won't touch on the fact that the much hyped pilot cost so much more than a regular episode (that has already been mentioned by others). But when I calculate the cost of a season pass on iTunes, I take into account the number of episodes to decide if the price of the season feels reasonable. The season description promised 14 episodes, so for the price, that was more or less right. Surprise! It now looks as if half the "episodes" are actually ten minute bonus features being re-branded as "episodes" which, if true, means the price of this series is twice what I would normally expect. As always, continues to be a great show, but I do hope "sneaky" pricing doesn't begin to mar the experience.

Depravious Rex - People quit complaining5 star

The christmas episode that everyone is griping about is the last episode of season seven since this is the last episode with Matt Smith. Peter Capaldi only made a brief appearence at the end. Sometimes they Start the season with the Christmas episode starting the season. That's if its the same Doctor.

Fleet North - I am liking this new Doctor!5 star

I wasn’t sure at first but his amazing movement from intensity to insanity to silliness and back again is a lot of fun. Really enjoying this, good work!

EarlAngus - Disappointed2 star

Capaldi's interpretation lacks the engagement of Smith, Tennant, or Eccleston. While it may be an attempt at a "throwback" to the original series of Doctors, this one is more slow-moving and less relatable than Tom Baker's interpretation. While Bill Hartnell may be the original, and Capaldi may be channeling him, too much has changed in the intervening 50+ years. Would you want a 1963 Plymouth? Perhaps more to the point, would you want a physician (Doctor) educated in 1963, then eschewing continuing education or, perhaps less desirable still, having had the update training and deciding to return to 1963 practices? The impending exit of Clara makes it unlikely I'll get my money's worth from having purchased this series - she has carried the episodes thus far. That's a change - she wasn't as relatable or animated as Rory and Amy, but did grow into the role (or the role was written up to take advantage of her abilities - more likely explanation). Sorry, but I'm hoping this will be a one-season iteration. I would have preferred more seasons of Eccleston - his hard-bitten warrior persona was understandable once you had the full backstory, and I think he was ill-used. Smith was brilliant, Tennant and Eccleston were nearly so, and their characters fit the evolution since the Time War and end of Gallifrey and of Skaro (and their inhabitants). Taken as a whole, the Capaldi interpretation seems to be a step backward.

K1ZQ - Disappointed with DR. and stories.2 star

Previously, Dr. Who was energetic and the stories intertwined, making it very interesting. Unfortunately, now the Dr. is lethargic and the stories no longer intertwine - almost ridiculous. If it continues this way, Dr. Who is finished. Maybe it is time for new writers? Certainly, need a new doctor. And bring back K-9, too.

Chris0513 - iTunes: Get the episode numbers correct.5 star

Loving the series, but could you please not list “Behind the Scenes” stuff as actual Episodes? It’s really annoying. Thanks.

Echo7 - Ignore the haters...5 star

Ignore the whiny haters...they are NOT true Doctor Who fans! Capaldi is hands down one of the best actors to play the part - I think he may even give Tennant a run for his money! Peter Capaldi IS the Doctor! No more whimsical silly Willy Wonka Doctor Matt Smith - now we get a serious, let's get to work Doctor!

Superbatwholock - PETER CAPALDI IS AMAZING5 star

He is such a wonderful Doctor, and he is so cool. This season is definitely a favorite!

vanessaangel87 - I miss Matt Smith!!!2 star

crying tears wah wah I miss him. New doctor doesnt compare to Matt's magic!!

practicing witch - 12th Doctor5 star

What I love about DW throughout its long history is that it is just flat out clever. Watching Deep Breath I saw Capaldi do 3,4,10 and 11 and suspect I just missed the rest of them. But I am wondering how long it takes for subsequent episodes to be posted via the season pass. Still waiting for episode 2 to be downloadable. I don't mind paying season pass price to be able to see the Doctor repeatedly. Always worth it to hop on the Tardis and travel with the Doctor. How long??

Jfynboh - Adore5 star

I am in love with this new Doctor. Capaldi has brought a classic feel back and I adore the new episodes. I have watched the first 2 about 10 times each now. Can't wait for more. Love season 8 and Capaldi.

Hello. Die. - DOCTOR WHO😍😍😍5 star

Omg after like 8 months of waiting ITS FINALLY BACK!!!!!!!!! Now the only reason i am looking forward to school is so i can watch doctor who at the end of a long and hard week(😂) i got the season pass cuz i could and both episodes are AMAZING so far. I didn't like Capaldi when I first saw him in the day of the doctor and in the night of the doctor i didn't like him cuz he was old and I cried in deep breath in that scene with smith but now I love him. Especially when he does that david Tennant "ooohhhhh". 😍 THIS WAS WORTH MY MONEY AND IT IS GUNNA BE WORTH YOURS. TRUST ME (I'm the doctor)

LumiTheWhovianElf - Pricing-bad episode-good5 star

iTunes - getting three stars because of the exorbitant pricing! Really??? Now, about the season based on what I have seen. To all you people who are griping about the new doctor, saying matt smith was better (don’t get me wrong, Matt is my favorite doctor) saying you don’t like the change, ect. You just don’t understand what Doctor Who is all about! Change! Over the last fifty years THIRTEEN different actors have played the doctor, each one bringing change to the show. That’s what makes it Doctor Who! That’s what keeps people coming back for more! The newness, the excitement, the adventure. If the show just kept being the same, we wouldn’t have the brilliant show we have today. I for one am really looking forward to this season and the changes it will bring. : )

Svirish - Very Expensive…3 star

I LOVE DR. WHO! But $39.99 for the season…? That is way to much, I’m sorry Dr. Who but I can’t afford this.

uncleho101 - Fantastic series5 star

I have seen the first two episodes of this series and I know it is going to be fantastic. Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are brilliant and the writing is really top notch. I purchased the season and have been pretty happy with it so far. The price of the first episode was as high as it was because of the extended time (episodes of Sherlock are the same price).

Anthony36us - Getting Better5 star

I was not impressed with Season 8 Episode 1, but I just watched Episode 2 and it is getting better. This doctor is definitely different from David T. and Matt S., but that is what the show is about. I got hooked on Tom Baker in the 70’s and have seen almost all episodes and movies going back to William Hartnell. I think Dr Who is in good hands. I might make one suggestion - lose Jenna Coleman as the full-time companion. Get someone else more interesting. Bring ‘Clara’ back from time to time, but she really is boring.

Civinsing - Saw the first episode, pretty weak2 star

I was really looking forward to it, but ended up being disappointed unfortunately when I watched it on TV tonight. I am so glad that I didn’t buy it for the overpriced amount it is selling for on iTunes.

Absolutely worthwhile Peter Capaldi is the doctor. They get better every regeneration I can't wait to see more of what he does.

Drunken Chicken - $8 for an episode?1 star

I don't care if it's 80 minutes, it still doesn't make it feature film quality! It is still a bbc show, shot cheap and made cheap. Don't pretend to be making a feature lenght and charge the same.

wwjend - The cost is ridiculous!3 star

I love the new Doctor but price gouging for episodes and probably half of the series again. Never buy Doctor Who on Itunes, people just need to wait for the whole series on blu ray or watch on Sci-fi.

Zach39 - Very good show! Not sure about this season.3 star

First off this show is awesome!! Secondly I am not sure about this season. Season 8 is totally different than the other seasons. The doctor is much darker. I am not really sure how believable the show has become though. Matt Smith was the complete opposite of Capaldi. Capaldi is very dark and I think its just to big of a change to be believable. If Moffat wanted to make doctor who darker he should of eased into, instead he just dove head first. I am not sure who the doctor is any more and I am not sure if I want to continue watching to find out. On the other hand I do like Clara much more this season she has become stronger and less childish. One last thing, this season is very expensive I am not sure what thats about.

KODMofficial - Yes!5 star

Peter Capaldi totally fits the Doctor! It was so worth the wait! However I am skeptical of the price of that one episode.

AbsolutGrndZer0 - Whoa at price at first, but...5 star

So yeah when I saw the price of the first episode, I was a bit taken aback, but after some thinking (and some math), the length of the episode compared to normal episodes of a tv series plus the fact that assuming 14 episodes as projected, that will still be cheap for the whole season.

Markdown Pro - For the price, buy a movie1 star

We've enjoyed prior seasons, but with prices like these I'll buy no more. I'm sorely disappointed and feel a bit cheated. For the price, I thought I was buying a 2 to 3 hour season premier. It is not and credits aside you're getting 1 hour of the usual. I looked for the length beforehand, and could not find it so assumed a fair deal. Now I'm looking for the partial refund button :P

Gmace - Expensive whining3 star I shelled out the $$ and got it. First episode was horrible - could you have any more whining angst of "who is he", "he's old", "he's confused", "does he like me, do I like him, is it him, oh it is him", and again "he's old". Lame. All intelligence is gone and we have stupid teeny bop grade school pseudo-relationship drama. I can only hope the sensational idiocy dissolves and some good sci-fi comes out of this.
