I thought the premiere had a good vibe—a fresh energy that it hasn’t had lately. They subtly celebrated the change, but didn’t overdo it. The new companions seem promising, although I still think there are too many of them. Of the group in this episode, she didn’t take the one I liked the best. Still, it’s a promising start.
I can’t believe they didn’t unveil a new title sequence! I was looking forward to that, and now have to wait until next week. I think BBC leaked the theme a bit with a video they posted to YouTube. I like the return to a classic sounding theme, if so; Capaldi’s theme was terrible.
