    At least i’m bathing in money. Let’s see you do that!

    What the hell, I’ll bite. Losing a quarter of your audience doesn’t mean much when it’s a quarter of the biggest audience any regular episode ever managed. Every final viewing figure so far has finished north of 8 million. 4 episodes in a row. The first time since Tennant’s highpoint in series 4. That means the show is performing better then it has over the last 8 years. But oh, no. Don’t let that get in the way of moaning for the umpteemth fucking time about “IT’S PC GONE M-M-M-MAD!!!!”. Massive fucking bellend covers it quite nicely I’d say.

    Indeed. Walsh, Cole and Gill are all great in their roles. The Tardis team scene from last episode was just a great showcase for everyone.

    I quite loved this episode. A lot of people seem miffed at the plot petering out but I like how The Doctor tried going about ending the threat in an as non-violent way possible. Before Mr Big charged to set himself up as recurring villain we’ll no doubt see more of. (I approve of that btw, Chris Noth is pretty great) I love how much the show has changed under Chibnall so far. It’s the first time the new series has done that. Many people would probably cite Moffat’s tenure as a change as well but series 5 had waaaaaay more in common with the preceding 4 series then series 11 so far has with the previous 13 years of the new series. That’s mainly to do with this series shifting to an ensemble dynamic. It has created quite a bit of change with how most of the plots play out. Chibnall will never be my favourite writer for sure, but as showrunner his instincts have been pretty sound so far.

    Three episodes in and I think someone has managed to sum up Chibnall’s approach quite nicely:

    For those keeping score, the BBC have judt announced that consolidated numbers for TWWFTE are 10,9 million. That makes Whittaker debut episode the highest rated regular episode of the new series. The first to surpass the 10.8 million rating ‘Rose’ managed to pull back in 2005.

    Probably because everybody’s too lazy to check their spelling on the name ‘Whittaker’. It’s a hard name to spell!

    I have to echo this. It all feels like early Hartnell, Pertwee and Davidson with being so back to basics in terms of plot. A welcome change after 13 years of Davies and Moffat cramming in plot in every minute. The new style gives room for the characters to breathe and the atmosphere of the story to settle a bit. Plus, this is the second episode in a row where we’ve had a planet/baddie with some actual history behind them, rather then the bipedal animal aliens in the Davies years or the machinery run amok of the Moffat years. So far i’m liking this new style for the show. It feels like the first BIG change its had since the revival. On the same level as going from Troughton to Pertwee. Watching this made me realise how excited I am to see classic villains come back in this more gritty style.

    Having watched it on television is one thing. But being at NYCC and seeing people dress up as 13, 11 & 10th Doctors is just .

    Lucky then that the episode length has been upped from 45 minutes to a full hour...

    Compared to F-Zero and Wave Race? Easily. Dark Moon has sold more then 5 million copies worldwide. Better then eithe WR or F-Zero ever managed. Hence LM3 looking similar to LM2. Edit: Beaten.

    Surprised to see nothing leaked from Famitsu. So much for me getting things right then. Anyway, looking forward to the Direct. Let’s see what NSMBU Deluxe winds up looking like.

    That would be... unfortunate. Mainly because Famitsu’s next issue will be out and have spoiled all the big reveals in the current Direct.

    It seems the Direct is going to be more substantial then initially thought, anyway. The full title for Yoshi Switch seems to have leaked, pointing towards a showing in this Direct plus one more new game was supposed by revealed. Earthquake related too, hence the delay.
