Episode One, Part Eleven.
MORE FEELS YAY
Yeah, so I think this is great?
His “be my pal” sounds so cluelessly sinister?
Matt Smith pushed the alien quality of his Doctor pretty far, but it was mostly in the humorous “I don’t understand you people” vein?
That line, being the first real line (kidneys aside) that we’ve heard from Capaldi’s Doctor, seems to push the alien in a great and creepy direction?
And the one thing that I wouldn’t put as a question?
I have complete and utter faith in Moffatt.
Okay, fangirl aside, this trailer is exciting. It’s nothing, sure. And it’s just as easy to read “HE WILL BE LIKE PERTWEE” in the “be my pal” line as it is by the trim of red in his jacket. But as a first taste of what a new Doctor will really be like, a resounding lack of handholding is really exciting.

‘THE WICKED + THE DIVINE’ #2 VARIANT COVER GAZES A GAZELY STARE
By Andy Khouri
Because you’re young you may not realize the latest Wicked + Divine variant cover is a particularly cheeky reference to a 1976 mugshot of David Bowie, himself a major inspiration on the Kieron Gillen/Jamie McKelvie series about ancient gods reincarnated as glamorous pop stars. But hang on to yourself; the only way to get ahold of this conversation piece is to buy it from Beach Ball and Corner Store Comics in California.
Ragged and naive, Bowie was arrested at the Rochester hotel in upstate New York on charges of felony marijuana possession. Fortunately Bowie was not dragged from police station to station, and his stay lasted only a few “…hours” before being released into the heat of the morning — but not before the Thin White Duke was able to create a little wonder in the form of what’s doubtlessly the prettiest star mugshot ever captured.
I had never seen this mugshot! Gosh.
The amount of cheeky Bowie puns in that blurb is astounding.
