A new season, a new Doctor, a new showrunner, and lots of newness. So it's no surprise that there was a touch of light familiarity to this new season. I've written more about the symbolism and more at Space-Time Telegraph.

Two other reviews with different opinions:

James Cooray Smith at Hero Collector

J.R. Southall at Starburst

in some cases those who had not yet started school when Rose aired, and who were now starting university

Aargh!!! That long ago?!

I really liked the review. I enjoyed the episode very much. I've seen some complaints that it wasn't sufficiently grand scale, but it was the lack of "Doctor saves the galaxy" that I enjoyed about it. The human story was important, and if they'd failed to stop Tzim Sha, well, the earth as a whole would have kept going perfectly fine - but the people targeted and their families wouldn't. Jodie Whittaker was terrific all round.

That long ago, yes - I recalled recently that I watched 'Rose' when pregnant with [profile] prince_eldarion, who is just about to become a teenager, and is now taller than me!
