    Seriously the last episode I watched was Love and Monsters. Anything has to be better than that episode.

    Hopefully, this will be good.
    That definitely was the worst episode ever, bar none.

    That was good, but confusing.

    BRING ON NOVEMBER 23RD

    The river storyline is so overdone though.

    I got so confused at the ending, is John Hurt the person before the Doctor? My understanding is that John Hurt comes before the 11 doctors? And the Doctor wanted to forget about the past, therefore, when Clara went into "The Doctor's" timestream, she didn't encounter John Hurt?

    :facepalm: That John Hurt thing at the end was terrible! The actual build up and the reveal was brilliant, the 'Introducing' graphic on the screen was horrible. Who the **** thought that that was a good idea!

    The finale was good but it could have been any other episode tbh, it didn't have the feel of a 'finale' mainly because the actual finale of that storyline is going to be the anniversary episode. This was all build up.

    Main problem with the episode was Clara wearing tights :sad: Still don't like the Victorian crew and I still find it hard to understand why the Doctor even likes River let alone loves her.

    I think it was meant to be that Clara saved the 'Doctor' and him alone, with John Hurt likely not having that chosen name (whatever the **** graphic says) is why she would not have met him.

    She's the impossible girl.

    She followed the Great Intelligence into the scar light and split herself into many different fragments into the Doctor's timeline - that's why we saw her in the Dalek Asylum and Victoria London. She saved the Doctor both times. That was her job.

    I think his greatest secret is still his name.

    John Hurt is The Doctor, just a future incarnation of himself, possibly the last one


    The Doctor will probably willingly die one day because he himself has stated he has lived "for too long".

    "Introducing John Hurt

    As The Doctor"

    How subtle was that? :rofl2:


    Pacing was all the place tbh but I loved it.
