The Internet Has A Hell Of A Lot Of Feelings About The New "Doctor Who" Episode

Warning: There’s lots of spoilers in this.

1. The internet was a bit excited about the new series of Doctor Who.

2. It started with a dinosaur vomiting a TARDIS.

Obviously.

3. And Capaldi delivering this memorable line.

The title sequence was inspired by a fan video created by motion graphics designer Billy Hanshaw.

5. Which received a rather mixed response.

My God. What have they done to the titles?! #DoctorWho #Awful

7. So what did people think about Capaldi? Well, they were generally positive (although it is a bit hard to judge in just one episode).

This is the strangest episode of The Thick of It one has ever seen. #drwho

9. This moment was well received though.

13. Strax also proved to be a bit of a crowd-pleaser.

14. And Madame Vastra and Jenny shared a kiss.

I do wish the BBC would stop pushing inter-species lesbianism down our throats. It's the thin end of the wedge. #DoctorWho

— Tim Stanley (@timothy_stanley)

16. Leading to basically the entire of Twitter asking if the three characters could have their own spin-off show.

Can we please have a spin off series with Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax solving old Victorian crimes?

— Zombirate (@Zombirate)

So....can we have a Jenny, Vastra and Strax spinoff please?

— Bitter Klaine stan (@Kennedylol6)

Dear BBC, I want a spin-off show with Jenny, Vastra and Strax being awesome Victorian detectives!

— DOCTOR WHO DAY! (@davidtfan)

Also WHERE IS VASTRA, JENNY AND STRAX'S SPIN OFF. WHERE. IS IT. #DoctorWho

— Charlotte Frost (@CharFrost18)

20. But the downside of this episode was that a lot of people got incredibly confused at the plot.

Please please please let me get what I want. A plot. #doctorwho

— Dan Rebellato (@DanRebellato)

Bit shite so far #DoctorWho

— Damian Thompson (@holysmoke)

#DoctorWho has tonight referenced the ship of theseus, Dickens, Sherlock, Descartes, the Turing test, the afterlife... But forgot a plot

— Greg Jenner (@greg_jenner)

Doctor Who theory: upcycled robots, endlessly patching themselves up = metaphor for scriptwriting process? Moff as tired clockwork king.

— Matthew Bloch (@matthewbloch)

24. And others thought that earlier aspects of the programme were just repeating themselves all over.

DON'T BREATHE BREATHE AND YOU'RE DEAD #DoctorWho

26. But just when some people thought this episode was a bit rubbish, this happened.

27. And then later, he said this: “He sounds old. Please tell me I didn’t get old. Anything but old. I was young.”

28. And everything was all a bit…

— Cherry Wallis (@CherryWallis)

32. Meanwhile, Danssmith on Tumblr noticed this.

33. The main lesson from this episode?

34. And that the Doctor does not like hugging.
