Doctor Who - Deep Breath Review By @TeganZAce

Doctor Who
Episode One
Deep Breath
Reviewed By Nyssa Ainley

First of all - Dinosaurs, Big Ben, Victorian London and a panicking crowd, who can resist?

Not to mention the not so elegant entrance of the TARDIS being spat out of the T Rex’s mouth.  A female so said Vastra to her wife, Jenny.  Oh did I not mention the return of the Paternoster gang?

On the muddied dock the gang ascertain that it is, indeed, the TARDIS.  In a wonderfully timed entrance 12 opens the door to Strax’s knock: “Ssh!” he says.  Then comes out in the rest of Matt Smith’s costume in a funny, garbled way describing Clara as the “not me one!” and “the asking questions one!” before confusing Clara for Strax due to their similar heights before swooning on the floor with a slightly dishevelled Clara holding onto the Doctor with Vastra quoting the Brigadier: “Well here we go again!” she says with a twisted smile her eyes gleaming with excitement as she does so.
