No spoilers on the first episode, but I will say Whittaker is brilliant!! She certainly IS "The Doctor"!!

1. It was fine

She makes a perfectly decent Doctor.

11. I think so...

I think she captured the essence of the character. I'm looking forward to seeing her development.

12. Did you watch the US version? I thought it was pretty good, too.

But they killed it after season 1.

4. I loved her.

It will be fun to see the little differences that come up. I thought she was fine and will be just really awesome as time goes on.

6. I liked the new Doctor

Whittaker did a great job. I go back to the Tom Baker days and I always like David Tennant as the Doctor.

I am looking forward to the new season and the new doctor

7. Love Tennant as well...

I thought they did a nice job with the transition to this season. Looking forward to seeing what's next. (I don't go back as far as you...the 5th was my first Doctor. Tom Baker did certainly set the bar though.)

13. Being from Sheffield...

...I was preoccupied with spotting local landmarks!

Still, I did enjoy the episode and thought Jodie Whittaker was quite good.

19. It got to the point....

....where some people were trying to work out the location in Sheffield of scenes that were clearly filmed in a studio!

Also, train cranks were irked to see the train carriage was clearly not one used on the Sheffield to Manchester line (although that may say more about train cranks)

16. The highest praise a TV show can get in our house after a 1st episode:

"Record - Series".
