Before I start I know you know I don't like Moffat for A LOT of different reasons and that I LOVE Peter... It's thanks to him I kept watching the show, and I am going to miss him when he's gone! I think his Doctor is excellent! Anyway... I am enjoying this season... I am still scared it's going to go down the toilet, but so far I am enjoying the show again, and this makes me happy!
I like Bill. I didn't like her at first from the promo they showed us months ago, back then I thought she could not handle the serious/sad/touching parts of the show (that are always my favorite thing), but the last episode started to prove me wrong (YAY). And I was not very convinced before The Pilot because of the big deal BBC made of her being gay... I am 100% on board with her being gay, don't get me wrong, what I'm not okay with is the BBC wanting to make a big announcement before the show started to get people talk about the show. I understand the fact the network is selling a product, but I feel a little bit sad that they think that to get us talking/get excited about something they have to use our sexuality or something that is still classified as "controversial". To me Bill is a person, she can sleep with whomever she likes, pray whatever, vote for who cares,... She is still a human being... When I go out and someone wants to introduce me someone they know they just say his/her name and then I get to know them, I don't receive a text a week before saying he/she's gay or straight... I simply get to know the person... So I was a little bit upset when she said right away, in a silly monologue at the beginning of the premiere, that she liked girls... I would have like it to come out in a more natural way,... But this is me!
Going back to the episode 10x02 here are my thoughts:
I enjoyed the episode, it was very simple, but a good way to help us to get to know Bill better. She's funny and she is a very positive character and I really like that! As long as she remains one of us and not the most important person ever in the history of the Universe (
One of the best lines/exchanges:
BILL: Why are you Scottish?
DOCTOR: I'm not Scottish, I'm just cross.
BILL: Is there a Scotland in space?
DOCTOR: They're all over the place, demanding independence from every planet that they land on.
What do you guys think about the new season and the new companion?
