Doctor Who: The Complete Eighth Season


Main Plot Points:

  • Join Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi for a whole new set of spellbinding adventures across time and space in the eighth season of BBC America’s hit show Doctor Who!
  • Jenna Coleman (Captain America: The First Avenger) returns as the Doctors companion Clara for what promises to be the most electrifying season yet!

What We Thought:

  • It always takes me at least a season to warm up to new Doctors on Doctor Who. I really liked Christopher Eccleston as The Doctor, and ever since then, it always takes a season or two before I’m completely comfortable with a new one.
  • So, not surprisingly, I don’t love Peter Capaldi as The Doctor yet. Season Eight has some great episodes to be sure, but I haven’t quite warmed up to his crustier, crankier Doctor yet.
  • Luckily, Jenna Louise Coleman is still The Doctor’s companion, and that makes it all okay. Frankly, she’s so charming, sweet, funny, and beautify, I would watch her read the phone book. She definitely helps balance out Capaldi for me.
  • Of course, the show is smart to bring in some classics when they’re shaking things up, so you can also look forward to returning favorites such as The Daleks and Cybermen.
  • While not my favorite season of the show, it’s not my least favorite, either. Capadi has a lot of promise, and I’m sure I’ll embrace him eventually.
