After the conclusion of Peter Capaldi’s run as the Doctor, fans have waited to see Jodie Whittaker’s take on the titular character. The premiere of series 11 has finally arrived, and it’s definitely a fun watch from beginning to end due to its interesting characters and decent storyline. Therefore, this episode earns a 4/5.

The episode follows the Doctor as she and her newfound friends try to stop an intergalactic assassin from killing a randomly selected human target. Jodie’s Doctor is nothing short of wonderful; she’s charming and funny, reminiscent of David Tennant’s Doctor. The new cast of characters are also great, bringing their own quirks and flaws to the table. The villain and his motives are also rather unique, making for an entertaining conflict.

The episode’s story is good, but isn’t really anything special. While it is very enjoyable, the emotional moments don’t really hold much weight due to the lack of attachment to the new characters. The episode features enough cool surprises that make the viewer want to see the next installment.

Overall, this series premiere is very good. It establishes the new Doctor and her friends in a delightful, compelling way. While the story isn’t one of the best in the series, it definitely keeps the viewer engaged, and serves as a nice introduction to the future of Doctor Who. You can watch Doctor Who every Sunday at 7 PM CT on BBC America.
