I've personally not been a fan of the current series so far. I'm a huge admirer of Capaldi and I think Jenna Coleman is absolutely fantastic as Clara, the chemistry they have together is really exceptional. Everything surrounding them though has just been so bland. We're 8 episodes in so far and not a single one has given me that goosebumps feeling I expect from the show. I really hope this 'Afterlife' aspect of the story pays off because as it stands right now I think this show needs more of a shakeup beyond just a change of lead actor.
