I interpreted Clara saying Danny's original name as a slip of the tongue. She had just mentioned moments ago that her mouth runs off on its own all the time.

Interesting episode, if only because it really left it open whether there was ever a monster or not. I like when a show or movie plays with your mind like that.


Also an interesting character study, with Danny Pink and Clara.

I will admit, I struggle to understand him on occasion, but being an American viewer, I've always watched Doctor Who with subtitles on anyway because there's thick accents all over the place.


So it doesn't really bother me. In fact, really, I LOVE the way he speaks.

@Master Michael Moon I have a similar theory, but my belief is that Clara is going to die because of an accident, NOT from any intentional sneaking in, and that the Doctor's going to head to the Nethersphere to get her back.

I hate how much speculation and media need-to-know there is regarding companion and Doctor departures in this show.


Can't we just have surprises? As emotional as companions leaving and the Doctor regenerating can be, I just feel like it never has the impact on me that it should because I've already known it was going to happen for six months beforehand.

I sure hope they aren't going to actually wrap up the whole "search for Gallifrey" arc by the end of next season. Moffat seemed to imply that it was going to be the Doctor's primary motivation for quite a long while.

Ultimately, I did think they had the perfect amount of Doctors in the episode. Between The Light at the End, the Destiny of the Doctor audios, those eBooks, and the Fiveish Doctors Reboot, I think the Classic Series got plenty of love for the 50th Anniversary.


The only thing that really bugged me was the actual Thirteen Doctors scene in TDOTD. I'm fine with them using stock footage for the physical appearance of the Classic Doctors, but I don't understand why they couldn't have asked Davison, McCoy, McGann, and the Bakers to record some new lines instead of just using archived audio (especially since they brought in an impressionist for Hartnell).

@Type40Charlie I'd rather not see them visit Sarah's grave, since I think the whole idea of the SJA ending is that while Liz Sladen may be dead, Sarah Jane Smith will live on forever. (And I think there was also a comic made recently where the Doctor stated she was still alive.)

Nice to see my favorite Doctor on the cover.


Sounds like an interesting retrospective too. I have always thought of the Seventh Doctor's era as a sort of precursor to New Who, with the way the Doctor's dark and hidden nature was later echoed by Matt Smith's version, Ace having actual character development, and a lot of the monsters and situations they tackled would've fit in comfortably in the new series.

Perhaps, as long as it's a unique encounter, like maybe the TARDIS herself decides she has to take that form again in order to save the Doctor's life. And then along the way, she and Clara can finally settle their differences. That'd be interesting.
