Falling for Ten Months!
Naturally, the long wait had fans chomping at the bit…
Currently giggling over the fact there's most likely a good thousand or two doctor who fans sat waiting tolerating countryfile and its segment on watervoles waiting for Jodie whittakers debut ?
Only 15 more minutes of watervoles to go….

So excited to see what Chibnall and team have done with #DoctorWho tomorrow
— Tom Dix (@TomDMDix) October 6, 2018
Come on Countryfile get on with it
— Matt Lucas (@RealMattLucas) October 7, 2018
But the moment soon arrived!
— James Tiley BA (@OnlyOneTiley) October 7, 2018
The new look caught some glances…
Is it does me or does it all look a lot less cheap than it normally does? The quality of the picture. The special effects so far. #doctorwho
— Love, Ryan (@empireofbooks) October 7, 2018
Also, the production value! Great CGI, lovely cinematography and great colour grading! Doctor Who has definitely stepped up a notch or two! #DoctorWho
— MattEleven (@matteleventh) October 7, 2018
Um…Why is #DoctorWho being presented in what looks to be 21:9 UltraWide? TV is 16:9, BBC. FFS. I like the cinematic feel of the cinematography, but that aspect ratio is just irritating me pic.twitter.com/GziZyDCsUw

Smart from the BBC to save money & use the same train at the start of the Bodyguard ? #DoctorWho
— Mark Holmes (@Holmster79) October 7, 2018
When the train stopped and got all spooky did anyone else think that dementors were boarding? #DoctorWho
— Dawn (@_gryffindawn) October 7, 2018
#DoctorWho I can't believe they made their train…
— Amelia Quinta (@amelia_quinta) October 7, 2018
People definitely fell for the new Doctor…
That show I love with all my heart? I've fallen for it all over again. #DoctorWho

Yeah we all love Thirteen, but she won't REALLY be the Doctor until she's been in a bizarre and awful midseason one-shot episode we pretend never happened #DoctorWho
— ? Praxibeetlejuice Ix ? (@praxibetels) October 7, 2018
Diggin’ Thirteen so far. She’s got a bit of an Eleven energy. #DoctorWho
— Mark Cappis (@chaosinabox) October 7, 2018
And had some words for the doubters…
Let’s address the massive #DoctorWho elephant in the room tonight. They’ve made a massive change to the lead character and cast a Northerner. I know that’s difficult from some people to get behind. But we’ve been here before. Tom Baker, McGann, Eccleston all Northern
— Martyn Vincent (@BadWilf) October 7, 2018
Is the future going to be all northern? We can only hope. #DoctorWho
— Darren Chesterton (@whenisayrun___) October 7, 2018
Of course, the new guys got a mention…
When they were running why didn't they make Graham say "the chase is on"?#DoctorWho
— Andy Gibson Journalist (@AndyGibsonTV) October 7, 2018
The only unrealistic thing I've watched so far on this episode is that the Doctor just erased a 19 year old millennial's phone, and he didn't try fighting her lol #DoctorWho Ryan's got better priorities than most of us haha
— ??????? (@lindseylaupola) October 7, 2018
I already really like Ryan and Yaz! Plus it's nice having two companions who know each other ^^ #DoctorWho
— Joe (@itsthatonenerd) October 7, 2018
HANG ON. Why does the copper get to be part of the gang STRAIGHT AWAY? Furious. #doctorwho
— Tom Price (@pricetom) October 7, 2018
Including the Tim “The Teeth” Shaw…
Bet he spends a fortune on interdental brushes. #DoctorWho
— David Brown (@MrDavidEBrown) October 7, 2018
Okay, that ‘Tim Shaw’ thing was the funniest bit of #DoctorWho since Peter Kay was that alien from Klom.
— Rodger Skelton (@RogManSkelly) October 7, 2018
A face covered in teeth and they're all better than his own set #DoctorWho
— Michelle (@shells_twits) October 7, 2018
— Dylan Vaughan Owen (@DylanVOwen) October 7, 2018
Girlfriend thought the Doctor just called Tim Shaw “a big, blue sh*t”. #DoctorWho
— Morgan Jeffery (@morganjeffery) October 7, 2018
And Kebab Man!
"So we are setting Dr Who in the north, to show the good natured diverse range of people that make the UK great"
"Yes but at one point a drunk northerner should throw a kebab at an alien"
"Oh fuck yes"#DoctorWho

The background music is starting to get annoying rather than adding too the drama #DoctorWho
— Diggerdriver (@johnbaker305) October 7, 2018
Chills!! The episode plus the music is making me giddy for #DoctorWho. Made me feel like she's not going to take any nonsense from anyone.
— Charlie (@tonerenilorac) October 7, 2018
Fall from Grace
I'm sorry, am I really the only one who caught the significance of The Woman Who Fell To Earth as soon as Grace said she was going up the crane? I thought the obviousness of that was pretty clear? #DoctorWho
— -?????- (@AMadmanNotABox) October 7, 2018
I figured Sharon D. Clarke would be a bit pricey for #DoctorWho long term! Pity.

Sounds like the Doctor was right: it was fun!
This feels lovely and RTD-ish. #DoctorWho
— Grry Bainbridge (@Gary_Bainbridge) October 7, 2018
Woowho all the way!an absolutely brilliant new series on every level #DoctorWho @BBCOne edge of sofa totally immersed ! JodieWhitaker gave it to us with both hearts ♥️ ❤️ & the whole team ?made me one very happy old companion knew DW wouldnt let us down
— KatyManning Official (@ManningOfficial) October 7, 2018
Hopefully, the series improves as this episode was a bit average, but like I said before, most first episodes usually are. #DoctorWho

There were a few eyebrows raised over the “Coming Soon” identity parade…
Googles a list of names. God, that was a weird end sequence to include
— Chris Walker-Thomson (@ChrisWalkerT) October 7, 2018
Also, sorry, no bearing on the episode, but that outrageously long role call of actors instead of a ‘coming soon’ trailer was utterly bizarre. #DoctorWho
— Jenny (@QueenOfTheSonic) October 7, 2018
Hope somebody does a JNT era version of that bizarre and incredibly long guest star trailer: "Coming Soon… Beryl Reid, Ken Dodd, Richard Briers, Lee from Imagination…" #DoctorWho pic.twitter.com/zo0gXIHCws

In this section we salute everyone who died during the broadcast of the episode.
