The second episode of Capaldi’s Doctor was actually quite disappointing. I feel like we’re still getting used to this Doctor and something a little more character building might have worked better. Matt Smith’s first post-regeneration episode (The Beast Below) did a lot to establish his character and relationship with his companion. This episode gave us a taste of The Doctor’s new darker, more callous side but I didn’t feel like it was done in a particularly exciting way (The Doctor being compared to a Dalek has been done before, and better).
Positives: Danny Pink has potential and Clara’s killing it.
