    You don't like the emoticons :bawling:

    It's not really anything to do with history though..

    I can see what you mean, Victorian times weren't that exciting though that may be because it's been visited many times
    I didn't say I don't like them. With Caitlin I did whole songs in smileys.

    Someone understands what i'm saying? :eek:

    I just found his Doctor too serious and I didn't feel there was enough comedy. Although I enjoyed him more at the time.
    Genuinely I think his is the funniest since the reboot. Deadpan done to perfection.

    I agree I thought he was the funniest, but David Tennant remains in my heart.
    I completely adored that man.

    I liked Capaldi more in that episode and the storyline was good.

    Was everyone else watching a different episode? I found the latest one dull and clichéd - how many last stands are there going to be? Additionally I didn't care about the Dalek attacking the humans because you didn't care about the boss (I think they shoehorned in the fact that he was an Uncle to try and generate sympathy for him potentially dying) - compare this to Ross is the Sontartan attack, you felt something with his death.

    The Dr doesn't seem that concerned about deaths either.

    I agree. I have a feeling that this Heaven stuff might link to this. A collection of all the people who have died through the Doctor's actions.

    Good idea! The thing the monsters always do to the Dr is try to expose his guilt about how many people have died because of him.

    I have a theory - more of an instinct, that Missy is going to be (or at the very least have something to do with) River Song, that heaven is some version of the computer that she is "saved into"

    Thats my instinct, could be totally wrong, any advances?

    That was one of my ideas - the other idea I had was that she's the clone of the doctor

    Pre reboot it was just a suit of armour since the first doc once hid in a Dalek unit in a museum but its likely the Time War made the Daleks get upgraded as pre war they could be beaten by conventional weapons sometimes and now have shields etc.

    That was one of the best episodes I've seen, better than most of series 7 and so far of series 8 Really enjoyed an actual adventure rather than brooding about, reminds me of series 5, especially the Vampires of Venice episode.

    Mark Gatiss can write brilliant episodes:congrats:

    I was very pleasantly surprised by that. Definitely better than most of the S7 episodes. Reminded me of the Robin Hood TV series, can't think why though :rolleyes:.

    It was okay, not great but not awful. Trailer for next week looks terrifying. Luckily I've got the bf over next weekend to snuggle up to.

    I agree! Two was fantastic, but three was definitely just okay. It was a really fun episode, but I think it was a little bit TOO lighthearted! It cheapened the plot a great deal.

    I've not been a big fan of the past "scary" episodes, but fingers crossed for it!
