PICK OF THE DAY Doctor Who 7.50pm BBC1

DRAMA OF THE WEEK Peter Capaldi's first word as the new Doctor is an explosive "SHUSH!" as he emerges from the Tardis when it lands on the foreshore of the River Thames in Victorian London. And we're off. After his unveiling as the 12th Doctor last year, Capaldi finally reaches our screens at first a discombobulated figure fresh from a regeneration that's left him jagged and confused. Who is he? What does he look like, he wonders? Here showrunner Steven Moffat has fun with Capaldi's maturity, his grey hair and those remarkable eyebrows ("You could take bottle tops off with these!")

Most of this feature-length episode sees Capaldi, like a deranged figure from Dickens, roaming London in a nightshirt, trying to establish his identity. Frankly, we don't see enough of him, but what we do see points to perfection - a dark, complicated man with hints of a towering rage. And Jenna Coleman as companion Clara really comes into her own as she fights clockwork monsters.
