I haven't touched Doctor Who for a few years; I realised early in the Twelfth Doctor's era that I'd stopped enjoying it, and I didn't want to end up grumbling constantly while everyone else was trying to have fun. (The Twelfth Doctor never stood much of a chance, to be honest, because Matt Smith is the Doctor in my heart. Perhaps even more so than Christopher Eccleston, who was the Doctor who introduced me to Doctor Who.)

But I thought it might be interesting to watch the new companion's debut, because 'it's a new companion!' episodes tend to take someone living an ordinary life and plonk them down in the middle of intense weirdness, which is something I enjoy watching.

So I watched 'The Pilot'. And it was fun! I enjoyed an episode of Doctor Who! I'm excited about this!

Maybe I'll give the next few episodes a try. Even if Peter Capaldi continues, inconsiderately, not to be Matt Smith.
