I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Honestly, I like all the Nu-Whos, but Capaldi is my favorite. I was less invested in this due to my attachment to one particular doctor, but I also loved a lot of the jokes in here. It felt much like an episode, including the characterizations and bizarre sci-fi plots.
But I came in on this story as part two of five. And I felt slightly lost. Between that, and the fact that I was hoping I'd be more attached to this Doctor - this was one of the two issues I could see, along with an OCY-C that I wanted in print because Ward's art deserves to be read in print - but I wasn't.
The art, by the way, is expressive, beautiful and the colors bright. It all just matches these characters and this story.
