    Yes, reminded me of the whole "I'm not your boyfriend" [...] "I never said it was your mistake" thing.

    I thought it was about average really. It wasn't terrible but neither was it particulatly memorable. Gareth Roberts can do better than this.

    Oh, and a Ian Chesterton cameo would have improved the episode a lot.

    Yes, I think he's very similar in approach and attitude to Benedict Cumberbatch's portrayal. Mainly because of the whole social awkwardness.

    I quite enjoyed that episode, although I'm still waiting for a better episode- the stories this year are disappointing me. This episode was let down by the killer robot. For the universe's deadliest killer robot ever made, it looked extremely lame. And I think they must have been low on budget by this episode, because to me it looked like it was made out of something that was a lot softer than the solid metal we all expect our killer robots to be made out of. And the problem/solution dialogue was also very tame. If a story features the universe's deadliest robot, I want to experience a little of the fear that would happen if it was real.

    Yes. I also thought the music in yesterday's episode seemed very like the Sherlock theme tune at one point. :erm:

    I'm a big fan of Sherlock, but god damn it, Moffat, they're two separate shows!!

    I see no, or at least, very little continuity between the Sherlock character and the Dr.

    Nothing special but the quality has improved since the last series at least. Poorest episode of the series in my opinion. That robot did not look like the deadliest robot in the galaxy and I am getting tired of robots. I want to see some mastermind aliens and a battle of wits rather than all the technology and sonic screwdriver waving.

    Calling it now. Danny will die saving Clara by the end of the series. The Doctor will then relise that not all soldiers are as bad as he thinks.

    I certainly hope so.

    The Dr doesn't hate soldiers, he hates himself imo.

    Aye, he hates how he acted in the Time War obviously so maybe this act would help him realise who he is and accept it.

    So little happened in The Caretaker that the only thoughts I had were:

    Would I rather an invisibility watch or Bernard's Watch?
    Would I rather a hot and sweaty Jenna Coleman (five minutes into the episode) or a soaking wet Jenna Coleman (Cold War)?

    Nice to see Chris Addison all the same.

    i thought the episode was good.

    The robot however i found to be totally lacking. It was nothing like a deadly robot, nothing at all.

    The forced 'comedy' and cringiness of this episode was just hard to bear. Horrible, horrible writing.
