@Notsosmartguy Member of M.I.S.S.Y. @Planet of the Deaf I'm visiting the Nethersphere for the weekend

I've no idea what's going to happen, except that as I am away for the weekend, I won't be watching this episode until Sunday evening. 

But don't worry, I'll watching Death in Heaven live. Assuming Seb lets me...

@awkwardMEOW @Planet of the Deaf TDTWATW and The Snowmen both featured several highly memorable new pieces of music, and were compiled onto a single CD, so I fear this release is a bit padded out...

@Amy Pond is suspicious of Seb @Planet of the Deaf @The Lazy Cat: Clara Detective  I think she's torn between her two world, she was also impressed  by Danny's care for the children, so that part of her is still there, but isn't always the first reaction to situations...

If we're talking conspiracy theories, then I'm a long time Dannysceptic, I'm convinced he's not entirely what he says he is either! The whole Danny/Orson storyline I'm sure has more to play...

Good article!

Thinking back to the end of S7, between She said, he said and NOTD, there was a lot of speculation that somebody or something had created Clara to be the perfect Companion, a crystallisation of all the qualities the Doctor required, with looks to turn his eye and squeezed into a skirt that's just a little bit too tight... 

Up to now she certainly has been the perfect companion, though as she starts becoming more "Doctorly" in her attitudes, does this loss of human idealism make her a worse or better Companion? Would two Doctors in the TARDIS be an improvement, or too dangerous?

@The Lazy Cat: Clara Detective  @Amy Pond is suspicious of Seb But then it's correct that somebody is looking at the bigger picture. Previous companions, due to being full time, were able to concentrate on the alien threat, once their family were safe hopefully. It would be odd, if Clara ignored the bigger picture and just concentrated on getting the children home, after all she's been through. 

I guess she needs Danny to do the human stuff for her now :-)

@The Whoniversal Man That puzzled me as well, maybe they re-recorded some existing tracks (e.g. the Majestic Tale) rather than reusing the originals.

@LGwalchmai95 Great choices! I can understand why you included the “There’s one thing you never put in a trap.” moment, but I would substitute the "We're all stories in the end" speech from The Big Bang, as it was THE moment for me which highlighted Matt's ability to be so youthful, but also portray so movingly the tired 1000 year old Time Lord, who's suffered so much pain in his life.

So hard to narrow it down to five, I've tried to pick Matt centric episodes so with regret left out Day of the Doctor...

The Eleventh Hour - I was a bit unsure beforehand whether I'd like him, but WHAM! Fish finger and Custard was the clincher 

The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang - Such a brilliantly different second part to all the previous finales, instead of wave after wave of alien attack, we got two Amys and the fez! The speech beside Amelia's bedside was gorgeous 

The Doctor's Wife - he portrayed so well the love between a man and his blue box 

The Snowmen - Because I love this episode, visually stunning, and some very funny bits too 

The Name of the Doctor - a quality conclusion to the Clara mini arc, a great setup to Day of the Doctor, some lovely acting by Matt, I love the contrast between silly Doctor with his blindfold, and distraught Doctor when he hears about Trenzalore

The phone call from Danny...

Danny: Hello babes, ready to meet on our usual bench? Can't stay long as I've got loads of marking still to do. Done yours yet? 

Clara: Marking? You must be joking! 

Danny: But the children have their exams in two weeks? 

Clara: I couldn't care less, marking is boring. 

Danny: I don't understand you sometimes. 

Clara: That's because I'M EVIL CLARA {evil laugh} I don't care about the children any more, unless they can join me in the Nethersphere. Children are so much more fun when they're converted don't you think? 

Danny: Er, I must be going, need to prepare for Class 10b...

@sontaran17 @NightRises The thing we don't know is how much of the stories is down to the writer, and how much is down to the showrunner. TDW did go through an awful lot of rewrites, a painful process (Gaiman has commented) before hitting the screen. 

I'm sure Gaiman can produce another brilliant story, but can he do it in 45 minutes and has he got the time, with all his other commitments, to do it justice?

@supermoff needs answers! NOW! @Antee991166 @Notsosmartguy Dreams of Paradise @The Finn @Juggernaut265 The ending was fine to me, not the strongest part of the episode, but it followed logically from the rest of the episode, where the Snowmen were shown to be mirroring Clara's thoughts. 

Anyway, I love The Snowmen, any episode that introduces a new Companion, makes her enchanting and brilliant, then proceeds to kill her off, and on Christmas Day as well, is a stunner!

Leaving aside Clara (which I've mentioned below) and the children, making the Cybermen so powerful that the only answer is blowing up the planet is a bit excessive...the show has escalated and escalated the stakes so much, that destroying your planet is now the only solution, which isn't very satisfying story telling

@LGwalchmai95 It's my least favourite Clara episode I'm afraid. Clara's leadership skills in Flatline made sense to me, she's developed over a period of time, she's now a teacher who's travelled with a trickier Doctor who's changed her. 

Back in S7 though, she was still a nanny who'd shown no previous signs of that level of confidence, especially with a weapon. Indeed, is that the ONLY episode where she's been seen with a weapon of some sort? If that had been Amy or S2 Rose, it would have been believable though.

Some of the logic in the episode was a bit warped, and the reappearance of the sister at the end rather rushed, but when I watched the episode on Saturday I enjoyed it, and on a rewatch I again enjoyed it, I like these slightly oddball episodes will no monsters and guns and explosions 8/10
