A blooming loved the first episode of Doctor Who series 8. A flaming T-rex, some creepy torture by robots, and buckets of humour. Great chemistry between new Dr and Clara too.
It was great to have a Doctor/companion relationship that is a clash of wills and wits rather than hearts too. The regeneration episode always needs the companion to be the last one on board with accepting the new Dr. The reason being that the viewers need to be compelled to accept the new Dr so the companion is always written as the last skeptic.
I also loved all the lesbian love interest. All matter of fact but done with humour.
The episode didn't have too much 'corridor running' either. Each scene was given room to breathe.
I loved the restaurant banter too. All round an ace episode.
