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

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