Variety review of Deep Breath alarms ...

After years of speculation, the Doctor unceremoniously outs himself as an atheist in the premiere, though a creepy epilogue suggests the reveal is part of a larger arc for the season. 
That provocative nugget aside, Moffat’s script emphasizes storyline continuity and easing faithful viewers into the regeneration transition ...
Hmm. That doesn't sound like something that needs an arc. If there's an arc, that implies the series attempting to provide a credible alternative to atheism. Not that there's no interesting way to tell a story like that, but there is one particularly uninteresting and way to do so and that would be a crushing blow for this fan ... to finally get Capaldi only to have the series descend into some sort of deism or New Age hokum would be ... ugh. Ugh, ugh, ugh. Just don't go there ...
