At the centre of the episode was one of the Doctor's new companions, Ryan Sinclair, who talked about having dyspraxia. You can check out both clips below!
Not that you'd have expected that so early on in the season anyway, but there was admittedly more death in that first episode than some would have suspected.
Viewing figures for last year's Doctor Who were the lowest since the programme returned to screens in 2005, averaging 5.5 million.
Like its protagonist, Doctor Who has survived this long thanks to its endless ability to regenerate - the malleability of its imaginative premise lends itself inherently to the kind of change that came between seasons 10 and 11.
Jodie Whittaker has stepped into the shoes of the Doctor, replacing Peter Capaldi as the Time Lord (now Lady) and getting a few new friends in the process.
Whittaker's vision of her Doctor is all about hope. "That's the major thing, not the female bit", she tells me.
Rain, strong winds likely from Tropical Storm Michael
Eastern, Michael's peak winds attained hurricane-strength, climbing to 75 miles per hour , as it moved north at 7 miles per hour . Storm surge is not much of a concern because forecasters expect the hurricane to move quickly across the state , Martin said.
In the past, I've written about how badly I want to see historical Doctor Who episodes that go outside of the United Kingdom to other parts of the world that have equally rich histories.
The actress previously said that, unlike other parts, she was never asked to do any particular voice for the Doctor, so she just stuck with her own. I loved the accent, that's an accent I grew up hearing which makes it all the better.
Most new Doctors need a couple of episodes to bed in.
"This production value and writing is everything I've always wanted this show to be".
The dynamic between everyone involved in the show is so handsome that you can't help but be filled with joy just seeing how excited they are.
"Once she steps out in her new costume and with her beaming smile, there is no question that Whittaker is ideal for the role". I ask Whittaker to help me understand how her Doctor will be different, by asking if she could distill her Doctor to just one dominant trait, boil her down to one aspect what it would be.
