Both brothers have a love of basketball, but when Lucas moves from playing in the park to playing for the varsity team, they must deal with the fact that they have to see each other.Aside from having to deal with his issues with Nathan on the court, Lucas must also deal with the fact that Peyton Sawyer, his long-time crush, is dating Nathan (Something not lost on Nathan) & being dropped into a new circle of friends alongside his best friend Haley James.

Their grinning idiocy didn’t leave much room for The Doctor’s fabled gravitas, borne of 2000 years time travel.‘Look at these eyebrows ! ‘WHOOOO-OOOOH, OOOOH-WHOOO’, and the contribution of Jenna Coleman as Clara who has failed to make anything like the impact of Billie Piper as Rose Tyler or Karen Gillan as Amy Pond.

There wasn't much chemistry between them and anyway Capaldi deserves his own assistant.

The first four seasons of the show focus on the main characters' lives through their high school years.

To avoid dealing with the downfall that Teen Dramas experience when their characters go to college, in its fifth season, the series subsequently jumps four years into the future after they have all graduated.

I enjoy the contrast of House and his cadre of young fresh faced colleagues, complete with starched white lab coats, who struggle as much with their professionally imposed constraints, and sense of decorum, as they do with his personality.

And, wonder of wonders, the use of ironic and tragic comedy is without peer in what I've seen in the TV world in recent memory.

Clara just could not overcome the trouble she was having coming to terms with The Doctor’s regeneration - the way he had gone from having the youthful cheek of Matt Smith to his new, older, greyer, persona.‘How do we fix him? ’ Clara had asked, aghast, their ally, Lady Vastra, a Victorian lesbian lizard/ Silurian (don’t ask).

‘I’m sorry but I don’t think I know who you are anymore,’ she later told him.

Moffat clearly wasn’t taking any chances with the appeal of Capaldi’s first episode (especially with American audiences).

The Victorian setting and a CGI of a gigantic T-Rex bestriding Big Ben made Deep Breath more appropriate material for a Christmas edition.

As for Matt Smith‘s Doctor needing to intervene on the new Doctor’s behalf that was slightly different.
