Care to give us your take on The Caretaker? Please enter your comments below on whether you too also would liked to have known how the Doctor and Clara escaped the planet of the sand pirahnas, whether you think the fish people that the Doctor and Clara visited were the same ones seen in The Underwater Menace and whether the character of Courtney was named after the guy who played the Brigadier. Or maybe you’d like to comment on what the episode was about (since none of the examples I’ve listed have much to do with the heart of this episode). Fire away as rapidly as the Skovox Blitzer!

What did you think of the fifth episode of the Peter Capaldi era, Time Hustle - er, sorry, Time Heist? The architects of this episode were Steven Thompson and Steven Moffat, while its major guest star was Spooks and Ashes to Ashes star Keeley Hawes (pictured above). Did you get all fired up while watching it or did your brain turn to soup? Better write your comments down now before you touch any worms.

Tell us what you thought of the fourth episode of the current season of Doctor Who! Some are calling this episode the Peter Capaldi-era equivalent to Blink, some are calling it the best Moffat-written episode since he became the showrunner - do you agree? Remember to speak out your post as you type it, even if you think you are alone…..

Peter Capaldi’s third outing as the Doctor, the delightfully-titled Robot of Sherwood, has now aired. And it is “Robot” by the way, not “Robots” as I’ve now heard way too many fans call it already. Was this episode true with its aim or off-target? Did it not feature enough beheadings? Give us a spoonful of your thoughts in the comment section below!

What did you think of the 2nd episode of the season and the second 12th Doctor story? It’s the episode that aired August 30th, if you would like to have a few words (as the 12th Doctor might say) about what you thought, please enter them in the comments section. Is this season Heaven so far, or just leading to it? Whether you were tickled Pink by the episode, or are disappointed with the era so far, we would like to hear from you.

The 12th Doctor era has officially begun! Tell us what you thought of Peter Capaldi’s debut adventure in the comments section below. What did you think of Peter’s performance? What did you think of his Doctor? What did you think of the new opening titles and the umpteempth arrangement of the theme music by Murray Gold? What about the story itself, by Steven Moffat? Did Jenna Coleman surprisingly steal the show with her performance? What about the change of pace and tone of the episode? The returning guest appearances (both the surprising and the un-surprising ones)? The possibilities for comment are endless! Take a deep breath and let us know!

By my count, it is the 36th season of Doctor Who which starts tomorrow. Yes, I am counting the run of Tennant specials as a season, and I am counting the 2012 and 2013 seasons (also known as Series 7) as separate seasons. Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman point the way to a new run of adventures - either that or they are trying to spot where the legendary Morton Dill may have set foot in The Chase. On this occasion, time will not ever tell. Peter and Jenna are no longer in New York - as Morton Dill himself once said, they just left.
Get ready to give us your opinions on the new season of Doctor Who, whatever number you call it, as we will have special blog posts for each new episode after they air.

If this is the sort of facial expressions that Peter Capaldi can provide when being happily stuck in a confined space with Jenna Coleman, I can’t wait to see what he will look like when confronted by a Dalek, or a Cyberman, or maybe even the City Administrator from the Sensorites.
Although once again, this is just from the World Tour, this time in Sydney, Australia - rather than from an actual story. Which is in a sense too bad, as one can easily imagine the Sea Devils emerging from the water in this picture (complete with an Aussie accent), sinking that boat that is speeding by, and ready to do battle against our heroes. I know Capaldi looks ready for them.

After Name, Night, Day and Time of the Doctor, one could be forgiven for thinking that the title of this entry was also the name of the next episode of Doctor Who (spelt correctly of course) and that this was a publicity shot from it. Of course, it isn’t. If they do another Doctor Who world tour, it might be an idea to film some new episodes along the way. Some of the places they are visiting are breathtakingly beautiful (just like Jenna Coleman, I might add!)
We’ll get to more pics from more of the tour in advance of the final countdown to the new era of Doctor Who, starting less than 5 days from now!

This is not actually a publicity shot from a forthcoming episode of Doctor Who (though it would have been cool if it was). It is in fact from the current World Tour that Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are on promoting the launch of the 12 Doctor and the 8th series, or 34th season (or is that 36th season?) of Doctor Who. The new TARDIS team looks ready to take on the world, so it is just as well that they are!
