Well, this is it! The final outing for Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and Steven Moffat as Lead script-writer and Showrunner. No doubt, the Interweb will catch fire tonight at around 7.31pm, just after the series finale ends and (presumably) the current Doctor morphs into the new actor playing the next incarnation of the titular hero.
I’m writing this intro piece at around 5.45pm before the episode airs (at 6.30pm) as we’re out tonight. I plan to watch it when we get home around 9.30pm (having carefully avoided reading any information online and listening/reading any messages from well-meaning friends who know I’m a super-fan).
Here we are… it’s 9.42pm, the lounge and TV are both solely mine and I have a G & T in one hand – I’m ready! It’s an extended edition (1 hour!) and I’m looking forward to seeing how this final episode will conclude.
10.45pm – Wow! What a truck-load of surprises (that I won’t reveal here, in case you’ve yet to catch-up). Although I didn’t think the episode was quite as good as last week’s (same Director, Rachel Tatalay) Steven Moffat, as usual, somewhat wrong-footed most of us, as the ending wasn’t what anyone expected – and subsequently has set things up nicely for the Christmas Day Special.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
