This is so so so so smashing  
Deep Breath is just so perfect. I'm not going into details because I don't wanna spoil you but I'm pretty sure you'll love it. There's no words to express how much I loved it: the tone is really darker, completely different than the fairytale-y atmosphere from Eleven's era. Well, in fact, it's just extremely different from Eleven. Also, we're back following the companion's point of view more than the Doctor's and it's a brush of fresh air. Capaldi was smashing, as well as everyone else (gods, love at first sight with the villain) and loved seeing the Paternoster gang again. Also, yay to the nods to the Classic and Davies' era.

Anyway, I'm really really flabbergasted and couldn't be happier with that episode. AND THE OPENING OMG, MY EYES ARE BLEEDING WITH WONDER AND I'VE HAD EARGASMS DURING THE WHOLE EPISODE.

And Mandy, there's a moment you'll really really love to death that even made me shed a tear.

Conclusion: I'm just a mess and the episode is smashing. And I don't even know why I'm surprised because I knew I'd like it; just didn't expect that much awesomeness and how different this is from Moffat's usual Moffatness. Also, I'm very amused at the poop CGI in the beginning of the episode XD

Definitely gonna icon that episode soon.

Ahhh, soo looking forward to this - though I will definitely miss my Eleventy.

I think he sold himself the fariytale because he could feel this coming. But...he didn't expect another life in which he WOULD have to deal with darkness. So he's all 'WHEW. MADE IT.' Then BAM new set of regenerations, lol!!

Well, at least, he had a proper goodbye scene this time. Seeing my reaction, I must miss Eleventy more than what I was thinking which wouldn't be surprising because I tend to stuff emotions in a box and ignore them until the box is opened XD.

Moffat must have listened to the fans. In fact, seems like Moffat did listen to the fans a lot in that episode. It's so completely different from what he usually does Bestie and me were definitely surprised in a good way since we're not very fond of him, and I hope Yunyun will be too because she's even less of a fan than us and she's a bit wary of what Moffat will do with Twelve.

Anyway, did your kiddos watch it yet?

LOL!! I am rather...explodey with my emotions. So everyone knows what I feel at any given time, lol!!

Ohhh, whereas I love Moffat. But then, that's what's great about Who - so much for so many differing tastes.

Not yet. Soon. If they're good :D

Well, irl I do wear part of my emotions on my face and I'm generally very expressive (because one expression can be so much more eloquent than words, even more when I'm annoyed XD). But all the 'deep' emotions are a big stick up my arse pun completely intended XD which I'm not gonna take out anytime soon XD

Yeah, diversity is so great. And be able to talk about our differences of opinions is really great too! It's always good to have other perspectives on things; leads to interesting discussions. As for Moffat, I'm pretty neutral to him. I think there are as many things I love as I dislike in his work (in DW anyway, I didn't watch Sherlock).

Tried to stay up and watch the repeat but I'm so glad I DVR'd it. I've got to watch it again; I love his Scottish accent :)
