With just over a week to go until Doctor Who finally returns to our screens, the first episode of the new series has been let loose to critics, and their initial reviews are in!

Suffice to say, it’s very good news. The Series 10 premiere, The Pilot, “offers a fresh take on an old format” according to Radio Times, who are full of particular praise for the “instantly winning” Pearl Mackie in her official debut as the Doctor’s new “uneducated but not dim” sidekick, Bill Potts. In fact, she might just be “the best companion yet”, say Digital Spy, based on her “cracking opening performance”.

Den of Geek enjoyed the episode, too, summing it up as “good fun”, while Mashable also concur that the story feels “like the beginning of something promising”. Bill’s “cheerful self-assurance” is a perfect match for Matt Lucas’ “comic relief” as Nardole, in what CNET have described as a “lighthearted and (mostly) self-contained” adventure, which SFX Magazine thought was “full of freshness and energy”. Please be aware that the links contain spoilers.

The Telegraph were less impressed by the “understated affair”, however, claiming it was “let down by a flimsy storyline, clunky special effects and an underdeveloped foe”. We don’t have long to wait until we see it for ourselves; it airs on BBC One on 15th April at 7:20pm!

New adventures. New companion. Same Doctor! Read the latest Series 10 news…

    “The Telegraph were less impressed by the “understated affair”, however, claiming it was “let down by a flimsy storyline, clunky special effects and an underdeveloped foe”. ” – Finally, at least it is not all “gush, gush. Moffatt is the best thing since sliced bread” bull!
