He'd make a great servant - loyal, obedient, sense of humour, even if he does have a fetish foe death, destruction and weapons with a joyful glee! This Saturday's looks promising as well with the return of the Cybermen!

I'd go with Daleks. They have explored them more with the new series and taken them to new heights. In a way it has challenged what they first started out like. Cybermen are still super cool but I think they way they walk isn't threatening and almost comical, so I don't take them as seriously. But where they have gone in the new series is still cool.
I still think the most terrifying thing uttered by a Dalek isn't "Exterminate", but "Elevate". Rose and those two other people giving it all "Yay, we climbed up 3 steps, screw you Dalek!" and then seeing the Dalek start hovering is possibly one of my favourite moments.
Not a bad episode, Smith acting his socks off being the best thing though. Some fans moaned about the kids and likening it to a Sarah Jane Adventures Episode. The boy was alright (If a bit wooden), girl was annoying though. Thought the Cyberman re-design was alright (At least Jazz doesn't have to worry about the comical walking no more! Well, no so much!) At first I thought I really liked the design, then I saw how lazy it was just repeating a pattern on the shoulder joint downwards, and likewise in the crotch are upwards in the torso into the chest. yes they looked more upgraded, but I think it was a bit lazy design wise.
Spoiler SPOILER Overall I liked the story, like I said Matt Smith acted his socks off playing against "himself", or rather a Cyberman controlled esq version of himself; in an all out winner takes all chess battle. Glad they kept the Cyberman detachment limbs a part of the Cybermen and I think the Cyber-nano whatsits were a good move as well. They constantly upgrade themselves and the nanites (Or whatever they were) are a good way of taking initial control of someone until full conversion. Not sure about the slo-mo, sppedy move the Cybermen do yet, but I suppose it's different.
So now the speculation begins with the build up to the Doctor's name next week, if Moffatt goes through with it. Half expecting some clever get out.
I've also been reading some hugely wide speculation, rumor, and fan-w**k ideas about the 50th anniversary episode. Fans are going nutes with speculation.
Spoiler SPOILER That John Hurt, because he is in a leather jacket (Underneath another jacket for the cold in a recent pic); is actually THE 9th Doctor.
Yep, fan speculation is high even going as far to say it's a for gotten Doctor between #8 and #9 that deleted all traces of himself during the Time wars years. This would make Eccleston now #10, Tennant #11, and Smith #12. The Doctor can only regenerate 12 times..
Speculation is also high that Smith might be leaving..
I reckon it's a good choice (although I did have to do a search on imdb to find out who he was). On the plus side, now it's just going to be proper fans watching it, as opposed to people going "OMG! Doctor Who is sooo cute!" etc.

I couldn't be happier with the new Doctor! Capaldi is one of my all-time favourite actors- his role as Malcom Tucker in 'The Thick of It' is one of the best acted, funniest performances I've ever seen. I've no doubt we're in for an altogether much darker Who in the coming years
I was underwhelmed as I wasn't familiar with his work apart from the 2008 episode of WHO, Fires Of Pompeii, that he was in. Although he was very good in that. SO I guess I'll see when the time comes and judge it as it goes.
