So the new series of Doctor Who started yesterday and we saw Peter Capaldi’s first full length appearance as the Doctor. I loved it. I believe he will make a great Doctor I just hope the head writer, Steven Moffat, keeps the story together this time around (not keeping my hopes up mind).
But what did the rest of Twitter think? Find out below!
Jenny, it’s simple. You’re posing needlessly in a corset because Moffat wrote the episode. #doctorwho

I know Deep Breath isn’t perfect but LOLOLOL at the grumpy fanboys complaining that it’s “Over the top” and “panders to kids”. #doctorwho >

People really have been made too comfortable with safe doctors such as 10&11 that they can’t accept 12 #doctorwho

There isn’t much negativity as you can see, just maybe mild bemusement at certain aspects of Moffat’s script.
I was reading through a lot of tweets last night about the matter and it was nice to see hardly any tweets complaining about the new Doctor. When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant there was a lot of fans disappointed that Matt wasn’t, in their eyes, as attractive as Tennant.
Maybe it shows a maturity in the years since Tennant’s regeneration? Or maybe people just loved Capaldi that much.
Welcome back Doctor!
