Chibnall is also writing episode 4 and if you liked Pond Life, it sounds very similar to that.



If they were staying the whole series, I'd say yes, but they're leaving soon.
Could still be now though. The gaps are getting bigger and bigger it would seem. It could be a case of 1.5 years+ cap for the Ponds when they meet the Doctor for next weeks. Then a few years in ep.4 before the heart-break of ep.5.

Really didn't like this episode. Hated the sassy robots. David Mitchel's nasal voice is only good on David Mitchel. The CGI was terrible. The only good thing was the foreshadowing.

Fear Her
Love and Monsters
The Beast Below

I'd rate them all under this one personally.
Nah, I'd say The Beast Below was just a little bit better.

What exactly did it foreshadow? I thought this pretty much stood alone.

And I wonder if kids liked this episode. I'm genuinely interested.

He's done episode 4 as well.

Show
The Time of Angels (Ep. 5)





I know, right.

The only decent bit of this episode was that small scene between Amy and the Doctor with 'You'll be there at my end' or something on those lines with Amy's 'Vice versa' with the Doctor's sad reaction. And of course the Doctor killing someone in cold blood. A bit random given his past history to be fair.
OOOH, thanks! How do you know out of curiosity? :rolleyes:

It was foreshadowing the leave of Amy and Rory, and how it might happen.

I watched it with my 5 year old brother and he seemed to like it. Though he generally likes the idea of dinosaurs AND spaceships, so that was probably why. Most of the jokes flew over his head though, obviously!

It's good that kids might have liked it. My younger cousins used to love it until Moffat came in.

I dunno why, I'm not a kid.

The robot voices were also something I'd expect from Sarah Jane Adventures, y'know, the CBBC spinoff for DW. The Doctor saved everyone with some random plan he came up with on the spot and the episode had no real meaning as the Silurians were dead anyway and the Doctor didn't even have to bring the "gang" aboard it.

Could've been better, but a terrible episode to follow the Dalek one as that was brilliant

For some reason I thought it was alright, the CGI wasn't that bad really (aside from Filch's escape ship, that looked ridiculous,) and the plot wasn't horrible, nothing special but definitely not the worst. The ending was weird though, although most people would leave the guy to die, the doctor wouldn't, the only justification for it can be that without companions he becomes colder, but nothing else about his personality in the episode suggested that. David Mitchell bot should have died earlier though, did he know how unfunny his script would be when he signed on? I'd give it 6.5/10.

Yeah, the jokes were strange. Why was there do much innuendo? It's not really what you'd expect of Doctor Who.

A Good Man Goes to War
Let's Kill Hitler

especially Filch's ship when he was fleeing, would expect that effect on SJA.

I'd agree with Let's Kill Hitler, that was complete and utter tribe. A Good Man Goes to War was through ally enjoyable though. I rated that episode quite highly.

Do the people who voted 'excellent' really believe that this was? As in it was a 9 or 10 out of 10 episode? :lolwut:

I think todays was better than last weeks episode. Dinosaurs on a spaceship are pretty cool. But I still think they have become so much worse since Moffat started writing them. He makes them confusing, un-emotional, and now he has decided to add rude jokes in. wtf?

Am I the only one that liked it? I appreciated having an adventure episode, not just story arc all the time. Yeah there were some flaws, but all in all it was good fun :yy:
