I wanted to share my fangirly post about Doctor Who since I’ve been so excited for it to premier 😊 What I plan on discussing is my first impressions of the season, Billy, and the dynamic between the Doctor and his new companion 😋💖 Also, prepare for spoilers ⚘
Synopsis: The Doctor and Nardole have occupied themselves under the guise of a university professor and assistant. Bill Potts is called to the Doctor’s office, where Bill becomes the Doctor’s student. Bill becomes intrigued by a student named Heather. Heather asks her to inspect a puddle, asking her if she can see what’s wrong with her reflection. The Doctor investigates the puddle, and notes that it is not a reflection, but something mimicking them. Bill returns to her flat, and is chased by a moving body of water, appearing as Heather. She runs to the Doctor’s office, forcing him and Bill into the TARDIS. The Doctor moves the TARDIS, where he and Nardole check on a guarded vault. The TARDIS lands again in Australia, where the Doctor admits who he is. The Doctor takes them to another planet and into the future, then decides to have it chase them through a Dalek battle. Heather assumes a Dalek’s likeness. Bill convinces Heather to let her go, and it melts away. The Doctor and Bill return to his office, where he attempts to wipe Bill’s mind but she stops him. As Bill leaves, she finds the Doctor waiting with the TARDIS.
Review: Whoa, that was a rollercoaster of a premiere and I loved every minute of it 💕 This seasons start felt very refreshing, Bill is refreshing as a companion. I was afraid that I wouldn’t like Bill and so far she is surprising me and making me like her a lot (and theres only one episode out so far!) 😋 I can’t wait to see how their dynamic will work, along with Nadole of course, because so far this teacher/student dynamic is totally different from the others we’ve seen. And I feel like Nadole is kind of there as a compliment to the Doctor’s moods, what I mean is that while the Doctor left Bill when she was crying, Nadole acknowledged her tears and comforted her (slightly, like his facial expressions were supposed to be comforting) 😊 And my first impressions of the season is that its going to be a rollercoaster, especially with the Doctor regenerating at the end of this season they’ll be trying to fit as much excitement into it as possible.
