Oh you remember, uh...
[points to a disheveled Clara stumbling out of the Tardis]
Thingy. The, uh... The not... The not-me one. The asking-questions one. Names, not my area.
It might be Clara, it might not be. It's a lottery.
It is Clara!
Well, I'm not ruling it out.

Capaldi is good , but his debut is nothing compared to Matt Smith's
Remember Matt Smith when he came in ? "The Eleventh Hour" !
The one liners, the funny eccentric Matt Smith, lovely Amy Pond, and of course, the showdown in the end of that episode. That showdown was excellent with the Doctor calling the alien back. Lines like "The doctor is in" , "Basically... run !" were delivered so well. The holographic images of all the doctors, through which Matt Smith walks out in the end !!!
Well, absolutely none of that cleverness was there in this episode. It was quite a simple one. Looks like Moffat ran out of ideas for a story and for showcasing a Doctor.
A simple story about a dinosaur who combusts and the Doctor searches for the serial killer. Clara was as good as always. No difference there.
One neat thing was the way they set up this Doctor's personality really well. they make it quite clear that he is not like Matt Smith and not a pseudo boyfriend to Clara.
Nevertheless, if you are as big a fan as I , you need to see it !
Update: I saw the second episode "Into the Dalek" and still not impressed.
