Welcome back, Whovians. After eight months of waiting, we’re finally treated to series eight of Doctor Who. We’ve got a new Doctor, a dinosaur, clockwork-y cyborgs, and the Paternoster gang. With the massive amounts of media hype surrounding the series (including some major script and episode leaks), does the series opener live up to its promise? Sort of.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to like “The Snowmen”, because I’ve honestly sort of hated all of Series 7 so far. I was worried about what would happen with Clara, I was worried about the characterization in general, and I was worried about Moffat being too pleased with himself and being annoying or too timey-wimey or something.
