The eighth season of Doctor Who is… happening, so far. Okay, fine, I admit it. I don’t like the new season. Hate me all you will, I don’t like the new Doctor so far, and I hated the first episode. The latest episode, “Into The Dalek” was a lot better. But it basically just happened. There’s nothing to write home about. In fact, there’s nothing really to write about.
This Saturday’s episode, “Robot of Sherwood”, sees the Doctor and Clara encountering none other than Robin Hood, whom the Doctor is convinced cannot be real. From the trailer it looks like this episode could be a tipping point for the series, where Peter Capaldi might seem something other than deeply uncomfortable and can start to bring something new to the role. Other than being the dark one. *eye roll* Plus, at the very least, we have a Knight who says Ni. See the trailer and a series of images from the new episode below.
