    I'm still catching up on my episodes, so apologies for being a little behind, but I just finished the 'hatched from the eggie moon' epi and OMG what a load of total crap. Seriously, the worst Doctor Who I've seen for quite a while. The only mildly saving moment was the beautiful graphic from the beach when it hatched, but even then, what was it flying in??? Do the script writers know that space is, er, not full of air 'n stuff? Der.

    Possibly the best episode of the season so far for me, although still not reached the level I'm hoping for. I think it's Clara, I'm not enjoying her this season, think she should just decide to leave instead of going backwards and forwards.

    Thanks ****, if only the subject of this thread said something like NO UNTAGGED FUTURE SPOILERS you might not have given away a massive spoiler.

    Oh, wait...it does say that. You must just be an idiot then.
    Don't worry, it's just a rumour, one that several people on the show have said isn't true (although from what I'm seeing on screen, I think they might be lying).

    I thought she'd stick it out longer, but she'll be back

    That started off well, but just became crap.

    Also why did Missy have an iPad:indiff:

    I enjoyed that, thought it was a decent episode with a concept that was actually original for once. I still don't like the stupid Missy sections at the end but apart from that I was pleased.

    I can't tell if I enjoyed that or not. Certainly, I found the Doctor and Clara's role-reversal (the Doctor being the one giving any thought to those that died) to be a bit odd. A sign that he's never observed somebody behaving like he does, which ties in with the "am I a good man?" subplot, I suppose.

    That was really quite good I thought - the missy section was interesting, I wonder who she is... :beard:

    That was so good up there with the 50th special and the Christmas episode as one of the best episodes of Doctor Who ever made.I think we have found our new show runner Jamie Mathieson both of his episodes have been brilliant He needs to write the whole series.Clara was even good in this and I hate Clara.I loved how it seemed to be pretty balanced between how much Clara and The Doctor there was in the episode.I loved the fact that Jamie is introducing lots of extremely villainous foes like Gus and these 2D monsters which have absolutely no morality at all unlike those silly conclusions like Time Heist where the Teller is really quite a nice creature.

    It was an extremely clever resolution to have a painting of a door used to trick the monsters into trying to make it 3D and then that energy being used to power up the Tardis and I loved how The Doctor said "some of you might survive the trip" implying The Doctor was going to murder some of them and didn't care because they were so evil.It would have been nice to have the creatures talk a bit more saying "this world is ours we are running out of energy to sustain 2D living and thus must take your world and your pathetic human lives".

    Episodes like this could give Doctor Who a chance to compete with great shows like Once Upon a Time and Wizards vs Aliens, which are currently undeniably better written today's Doctor Who episode was like a good Wizards vs Aliens episode and reminded me a lot of the show which is returning 27th October-the current Once Upon a Time Doctor Who scoreline is 2-1 this series and the 1 was Mummy on the Orient Express so with Jamie Mathieson it is likely Doctor Who will draw level but of course with some of the atrocities in this series like Listen and The Caretaker it will still be far behind but if Jamie ran the show it wouldn't be.

    That was a decent episode, though I thought them jumping off a train at full speed was a bit stupid.

    I really enjoyed that, the last two episodes have somewhat salvaged the series. It still seems awfully directionless though. No double episodes is definitely a hitch.

    Was disappointed. I normally don't mind/like Clara, but I'm getting fed up of her now. I was thinking 'This is all very well and good, but can we please have the Doctor on screen now?'.

    I agree. Still much better than the moon episode though, but not on par with last week's.

    I think out of this season last nights episode was my favorite! Although I didn't really think clara was the doctor because essentially she had to have the actual doctor save the day she just brought him back. I didn't really like clara but in this episode she was tolerable but what I liked most was when the doctor came out of the tardis and for me thats one of the moments I've been waiting for. That was when capaldi actually became the doctor for me and im glad it happened because it needed to happen!

    I loved it, APART FROM the bit where they jumped off the train whilst it was going full speed and didn't even get a scratch. That was stupid.
