As a Christmas gift to all our listeners, we're releasing this past Saturday's episode to our non-patrons earlier than normal! After all, it's to get ready for "Twice Upon a Time" - which we will podcast about as soon as possible, but the lack of screener means things are a bit up in the air - that we look at the beginning and the end of Peter Capaldi's three series as the 12th Doctor. How much has he changed from "Deep Breath" to "The Doctor Falls"? The answer is basically "oh my goodness what even was he when he started out, where is the Doctor I know." Well, it's not quite that bad, as there are definitely hints of what Capaldi would grow into in his debut outing, but "Deep Breath" very much feels like the follow-up to "The Time Of The Doctor," with all that implies. Plus we check in on "The Doctor Falls" for the third time in the past few months, if only to revel in how beautiful that speech to the two Masters is. We're not yet ready for the Doctor to go, but at least the moment has been prepared for.
