It made NO SENSE that Clara was so bent out of shape over the regeneration. SHE'S SEEN THEM ALL!! SHE HAS SEEN. EVERY. FREAKING. DOCTOR! Another case of Moffat COMPLETELY IGNORING previous events just so he can pander to his own silly plot-lines.
And the slapstick - way over-done. One joke, maybe two, I could deal with. But it was just too heavy-handed and prevalent. Complete with Looney-Tunes-like sound effects. WHAT THE HELL??
I was also a little annoyed at the T-Rex too - as tall as Big Ben???? Seriously?????
Oh and Vastra and Jenny are married. WE GET IT! No need to keep hammering that home every 30. Freaking. Seconds!
And the title sequence and music? CRAP.
Capaldi was indeed quite impressive. The highlight of an otherwise damned annoying episode.
The title sequence & music weren't good, but I think they was better than the last ones. Still, far from being good.
Not sure about Clara's timeline. Since the Doctor didn't die, there's nowhere to enter the Doctor's life... Totally agree on Moffat's plots being complicated.
That being said, it seems Capaldi will be a great Doctor. Clara is still a not-so-good companion. She's easily the worst one since the series returned.
