Doctor Who Series 9, differently from the previous one, is composed basically of two parts episodes, with only one stand alone episode (Sleep no More) and a consistent and remarkable three part finale (Face the Raven / Heaven Sent / Hell Bent).

Series 9 it will be certainly remembered not only as last of the longterm companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), but also by many memorable moments of the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi), strong performances not only from the lead duo as also from the very good supporting cast.

The heavy sense of adventure that has always encompass the Doctor and his companions is back, as the Time Lord and Clara throw themselves in the stream of action with passion and determination. The Doctor is now certainly more at ease and playing cool with his guitar, his sonic shades and his new wardrobe. It is clear since the beginning that he doesn’t dwell anymore if he is or isn’t a good man any more and we can see that Clara and the Doctor have finally found their ground.

Despite the  thrills, ups and downs of their new adventures (and forgetting a little bit about the heavy foreshadowing about Clara’s demise) the Time Lord and his human companion are really enjoying their time together.

The new series brings back old and new enemies, Zygons, Daleks and a couple of new and scaring monsters. We will see long time lost planets and will have the chance to know a little bit more about the Doctor’s mysterious past.
