    I honestly cannot believe Mark Gatiss wrote that, i thought it was garbage! Maybe it wasn't the script entirely but more the direction and editting, utter rubbish.
    Totally agree with you...was very dull and boring...

    A character returning is hardly a spoiler, especially when she appears in the preview at the end of the episode.

    Anyways, this week's episode was complete trash. Sentient sleep dust which then eats people and a crazy man trying to wipe out his own species. Very weak plot, poor acting by everybody but Dr and Clara (and the Japanese woman) and overall a waste of time.

    If you don't know it from watching the episode itself, it counts as a spoiler. Some people don't watch the "next week" trailer, and although I do, I didn't twig.

    I take it we are going to return to this weeks story again later in the series (if I understand the end), pity because if the original story wasn't great I doubt the 2nd episode on the story will be much good.

    No, that was one of the two stand alone episodes this series (along with face the raven next week)

    Must be planning it for a later series then, unless the idea is that the spaceship is destroyed before the electronic signal gets out? They didn't really resolve the story.

    It's a standalone? There was no resolution to the story? The signal is being sent out and Clara still has that weird dust in her eye.

    I find it hard to believe that the Dr would just ignore these things and go back to doing random **** while this happens.

    Well it wouldn't be a first; we never found out how the Doctor and Clara got out of his time stream:dong:

    I believe Steven Moffat wants a sequel for 'Sleep No More' in the future

    Sorry!

    Edit: * Though it would probably be ill-advised to look through this thread if you hadn't viewed the most current episode*

    Yes, and if it had been revealed in the episode it would be different. Some people don't watch the "coming up next week" thing though, and what you stated wasn't actually made obvious in it :no:

    I do apologise though, my comment was probably harsher then it should have been, but I was annoyed :sad:

    It'll be like series 1 where they came to Satellite 5 to find history had gone wrong.

    On the bright side, Clara is gone.
    But every silver lining has a cloud- and next week looks like a really rubbish episode

    Wow, they actually did it. No soppy ending.

    Just a shame the Doctor never went genocidal, i'd love to see a highly emotional butchering from him.

    It's a shame that Asheildr won't become the new companion because I think that would've worked really well.

    This!

    I was so afraid they'd make the whole episode when she left about her leaving. This was exactly the way I wanted her to go.

    Also, I was seriously unimpressed - I watched a little bit of graham norton last night, and Peter Capaldi was on it, and he said that it was the end of the road for Clara. It's so ridiculous when they put massive spoilers like that in unexpected places

    I don't think we saw enough about next week to know how it's going to be, so I'll reserve judgement until then.
