    Steven Moffat on the 50th...I heard that all the Doctors will return!
    "You always want to make it special and huge and big. One of the things that I'm concerned about this year is that the show must be seen to be going forward. It's all about the next 50 years, not about the last 50 years. If you start thinking it's all about nostalgia then you're finished. It's about moving forward. The Doctor is moving forward, as he always does. He wants to solve the mystery of Clara. He's not thinking about all his previous incarnations and all his previous adventures. He's thinking about the future. That, for me, is important. The show must never feel old. It must always feel brand new, and a 50th anniversary can play against that."-SM
    Maybe, but it is also fun to have a show that has so much heritage. My Dad is a huge fan and he is a mine of information about it - it's so fascinating to hear about the people and events in the show and watch old episodes on DVD. Some of the classic Doctors and assistants were really great and the stories were slower moving but well-written and fascinating. It's like a great treasure chest of fun acting, poignant moments and excitements, as well as laugh-out-loud corny moving scenery and low-budget monsters.

    I actually thought it was a good episode! I really like Clara, i loved Amy but I think Clara will be better than her.

    6/10.

    Could have been much better, to be honest i'd rather the Victorian version had lived because that was a colossal introduction.

    I get the feeling she could match Dr-Donna and Rose though.

    The episode was ok but it seemed to just be missing that extra bit of 'oomph' which nearly every episode does in recent years.

    Enjoyable enough, and adds to the mystery of Clara, but can't imagine it'll be one I rush back to watch again when the DVD is out.
    7/10

    That scene at the end with Celia Imrie on the floor, having been reduced to a child asking for her parents was probably the most chilling part of the episode for me.

    8/10 it was good!

    I definitely like Clara way more than Amy. After a while the Amy-Rory relationship became sickening, but Clara brings something fresh and new to the show

    I agree that the plot was not the best, but it was done really well especially at the beginning.

    One more thing, I agree with battycatlady about the opening sequence. There's sooo much wrong with it, I miss the old one.

    I still think UNIT deserves a series of it's own, starring Martha
