As of the time of this posting, we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing the first five episodes of the Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who: Deep Breath, Into The Dalek, Robot of Sherwood, Listen, and Time Heist. Thus far, Whovians seem to have mixed opinions on the 12th incarnation of our favorite Time Lord, which is no big surprise given the absolute truth of the following infographic:
But regardless of how you feel about the Capaldi era thus far, one thing that we can all agree upon is that the production values and scope of the series thus far has been fantastic. We’ve had some wonderful villains, some epic quests in the most unlikely of places, and some very creative new creatures of both the friendly and not-so-friendly variety. It is going to be very interesting indeed to see where Steven Moffat and the rest of the Doctor Who team take Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor and Clara Oswald (and her charmingly aloof potential love interest) in the remaining episodes this season.
But, focusing on the five excellent episodes that have already been aired for a moment, I wish to draw your attention to a hidden gem of video content published weekly by the BBC.
