Bio not provided
it's the fact that they hinted at a specific episode from a specific series that everyone has managed to guess, meaning that they ''hinted'' too obviously. If it turns out to be absolutely nothing like Hide, I'll gladly eat a plate of sauerkraut.

w/e dude, work on your definition of ''spoiler free''. Other reviewers manage to do it without signposting a reveal.
So why are a bunch of commenters saying ''oh, it's just like Hide then.'' if it gives nothing away?
It seems like everyone so far has guessed that the reviewer is referring to Hide.
''there is a reveal, and its just like this other episode!'' IS plot specific.
''spoiler free review"......."...there is a late reveal that may remind viewers of one of last year’s more divisive episode endings." ... well thanks for that...
Eh? Journey's ending didn't re-write the timeline, it established it?
It was literally nothing like Blink. I have no idea where people get the comparison from.

or maybe they just like the story better. imagine that.
Sorry, but Blink is totally overrated. It's not terribly rewatchable, and it relies, as Moffat says himself, on a party trick.
I think he said something like ''Let's Hinchcliffe the sh*t out of it.'' to Peter Harness.

it wouldn't work mostly because they've spent the past 3 or so series massively underlining the Doctor's benevolence and concern for children.

Does anyone complain about the Doctor achieving ''too much'' by saving the Universe repeatedly?
3 months ago on Open Discussion: Is There More to Clara Than We Think?
She's kind and brave. She doesn't need some weird reason to ''justify'' that.
How on earth is nanny --> teacher questionable?
... words that influenced literally everything the Doctor does and everything that he is. It's not an overstatement to say that Clara has been the single most influential person on the Doctor's life.
''Who is Clara Oswald?'' It's not a mystery. That's the point. She's simply an ordinary young teacher who is heroic by being kind to children.

Lol dude, you're posting in a public forum. Don't complain that your point of view is being oppressed when people disagree with you.
'' it seems needless. It is only relevant to this particular episode.'' ....... No it isn't. It's relevant to everything that the Doctor is and everything he has ever done. It even references the first episode with ''fear makes companions of all of us''. It's not even ''random'' because it's built on meticulously crafted backstory in the new stories and Classic series references. You're complaining about nothing, imo, and if you're going to complain, you have to ignore the fact that Moffat is not the only writer to do such things.
''The show survived without going in that direction for almost 51 years - why change it now?'' of any argument you could use against this show for any reason, that is the weakest. Come on. Where do you think the show would be if someone had said ''the show has survived without regeneration for years, why change it now?! The show survived without a massive Time War, why change it now?!!'' etc.
as it should be.
....How is it like Blink?

i think it's pretty obvious already that he's not just an ''accessory'', given that he's, you know, important to the story arc.
but by all means keep whining without having seen it, this wouldn't be a Dr Who discussion without your type would it.

He's been running the show for a while now and he might do for a while yet, so thank goodness your opinions on whether he ''deserves'' to or not are irrelevant
I thought people tended to move past needless nitpicking as adults.
Missy wasn't shoehorned in. It was a perfectly logical continuation of the arc.

That's still homophobia. No one has any right to judge whether gay people are ''wrong'' in their choices. You either accept us on equal footing with heterosexual people or you're homophobic. Period.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Addressing the Deep Breath Kiss
1. Don't assume you can speak for all homosexual women. 2. ''haha, men are such silly monkeys'' isn't ''anti'' male. it's a joke.
... only in the case of a homosexual couple, though. Interesting.
I'm... sorry... but trying to save someone you love is... illogical?
Congratulations on your latent homophobia.
What? people are mad that a lesbian character chose to show dedication to her loved one in a time of crisis? Okaaaay.
people who use this ''dominatrix'' nonsense are just projecting their own issues with women, IMO.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Introducing Missy the “Gatekeeper”: Who is She?
How the hell is she a dominatrix? How is Clara, Mrs Hudson, Molly Hooper, Sally Sparrow etc. ''dominatrix'' types characters?
Right, because River is exactly the type of person to cavort around in a garden like that.
Flirting is not the same as being romantically in love.
they're not low.

''The scene seems to have divided fans, some feeling it undermined Capaldi’s Doctor.'' one or two idiots have been whining about it on Gallifrey Base, you mean.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Moffat on THAT Deep Breath Cameo
''Throughout Deep Breath there was a little running “gag”, how Clara views the Doctor as her boyfriend.'' Well... no, the point of that was that she *doesn't* see him that way...
@DasManiac watch Torchwood if you lack the self-esteem to enjoy children's programming for it's own sake.

I reckon it'll be a character that has never actually been in the show, but through the power of wordplay, ''making a return'' will still be technically true.

Yes, when a show is _50 years old_, you're bound to find similarities between eras.
4 months ago on Is Doctor Who History Repeating Itself?
Because a] the length of TV time slots is decided by the BBC, not by tv show producers, the producers have to work with what they are allowed and b] he's talking about doing short, self-contained *episodes*, not prequels. that was literally the point of what he was saying when he said ''they're not prequels''.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Moffat: Big Plans For Future Online Episodes
''He Said, She Said'' was much more a piece of visual poetry than a TV episode. You couldn't really do that sort of thing in a normal TV episode. That's why this online expansion is so great -- you can be far more experimental than when you're restricted to a 45 minute adventure story. <p>
Steven Moffat cut his professional teeth on Press Gang, not Coupling.

Some men, too.
... all TV is a spectacle. Of course it's a natural progression to move to a bigger screen for a bigger spectacle.
