I enjoyed the new episode of Doctor Who. I thought the new companion might be a bit annoying but it was not the case.

Who will be the new Doctor? I read that it may be Kris Marshall.

I liked the character, but I sometimes found Pearl Mackie hard to understand. I don't think it's my hearing, as I didn't have the same problem with the other actors. I just don't think her diction is very good.

I'm sceptical about the Kris Marshall story. Still no announcement from the BBC. Some people are saying that it sounds like one of those fake stories planted in order to identify leakers.

I can understand most people when they speak English - although some of the French accents during the Presidential vote were a bit tricky.

The skulls in the garden in the latest ep were scary.

Latest episode was one of the best in some time. Happiness Patrol II.

I am liking this series so far. Hate the thought Peter Capaldi leaving after this series.

Quick Thoughts on the series so far:
Episode 1. Interesting harkens back to some of the 4th Dr era, Douglas Adams Professor Chronotis. Not sure about the new companion, glad she is not heterosexual because I'm tired of young women being in "love" with the Dr story lines. Also seems like Steven Moffat want another try at the two girls bouncing around space and time story.

Episode 2. Really like this story, again using classic elements as part of the story telling fabric. Several plot holes and then their is the problematic Dr mind raping the entire memory of a newly evolved sentient species to force a peace. First episode in a long time I really like. Last Series Valyard story arc left a bad taste.

Episode 3.Another story I like. The whole Frost Fair atmosphere was great, honestly could have been a 4th Dr story. A few lose end in the story plot, maybe it all foreshadowing the series finally.

New companion, seems all right, better than most of the Tennant era companions. Some aspects remind me of the companions from the book series, a little more 'realistic' in the raw human reactions to some of the things the Dr does. Althou some of the things she notices reminds me of companions who are possessed or influenced by someone trying to get at the Doctor.
