Did anybody catch the doctors revisited when it broadcast? How do you guys feel about the changed aspect ratios?

Perfect! I hope he gets to be a villain.

If memory serves, they were stretched to 16:9. Ugly, unnatural distortion. No clue why so many channels do that.
There's a lot of stretching going on during the Horror channel reruns too



Mysterious.



Sounds like Davros 'till the end where it goes full Dalek, so on the fence for now
A thought occurs to me. They're really hyping up Capaldi's Doctor as questioning his goodness - with the Dalek or Davros finding admirable amounts of hatred within. That seems... suspect to me. Unless....





Capaldi is not the Doctor. What if he is the Valeyard? According to The Master (an unreliable source of information if ever there was), the Valeyard came in to being at some point during or before the Twelfth Doctor's regeneration into Thirteen. However, now that we know about the War Doctor, Matt is the twelfth incarnation of the Doctor, just the eleventh to call himself as such. Furthermore, there is a gap in what the viewer is presented. After his mega-regeneration destroyed the Dalek fleet, we next see him through Clara's perspective, in the TARDIS. We do not see what transpired between the energy wave and that point. Perhaps he split into two - the as yet unseen Twelve, and the Valeyard played by Capaldi. The tear-inducing farewell we saw with Matt's Doctor? Just a ruse to engender trust with this companion. The delayed regeneration, the snap-to effect? Just the Valeyard assuming a new disguise. After all, wasn't he shown to be able to do that back in Colin's era, shifting from the supposed prosecutor, to the Keeper of the Matrix....

I tell you, having the real Doctor show up to reclaim what's rightfully his at the end of the season would be the most amazing twist ever.

I have to say that would be quite an amazing twist! Wow. I just read this post to my fiancé who was floored by what a clever twist that could be. It's doubtful Moff would do that, but I'll be the first one to say you were right if that does happen.
^^ It would be an audacious plot twist but it would also be the epic disapointment of Sir Derek Jacobi's brief tenure as The Master turned up to a squillion ;-).
It would be a very dynamic twist and would fit those "Capaldi is staying for one year" rumours that have persisted for quite a bit, but at the same time it would muddy the waters a bit and if Capaldi is a decent enough Doctor in the role it could tell an impressionable kid audience not to trust anyone who becomes the Doctor afterwards.

Also the Daleks sensing hatred in The Doctor does'nt mean he's a bad guy, he does have hatred in his hearts for the Daleks and was driven to cause their homeworld's destruction in his chessmaster Seventh incarnation as well as do what he did in the Time War. You don't need to become The Valeyard in order to easily bring a badass side out of The Doctor
