Doctor Who storms back in fine form with Season 9 opener The Magician's Apprentice

Tony Paulazzo

It is supposed to be a child-friendly programme

No, it was supposed to scare children. In 1963, the BBC heads wanted the title credits changed and no daleks because it would be too scary, and the shows producers fought to keep them (if I'm not wrong, Verity Lambert, the first female producer for the BBC, but citation needed).

In PC 2015 nothing scares the children cause they're downloading the worst that can be found (The Human Centipede) off the net.
