8/10

Loved the story, characters, concept. Only issues where that the teleport actually looked like a teleport, so I guessed they survived. And The Doctor being the architect was predictable ever since he hinted that the architect could travel in time.

If you've not seen any of Nick Frost's work then I recommend you watch the Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End). They also star Simon Pegg and are very very funny.

I don't think it's THAT bad either. It's just the 'Power Rangers' at the end that spoiled it.

Two things that ruined JTTCOTT for me were:

1) The Brothers. Truly hateable and awful acting, epecially the big one. "Oi, robot. Fetch me a sandwich I'm starving." Makes me cringe how bad it was delivered. Not to mention that they lied to their brother 'for te lolz'.

2) wasted opportunity. Other than the library we didn't really see many places on board the TARDIS. Like the swimming pool (not a single shot), Clara's room, garden...

Other than that the dialogue between the Doctor and Clara was great. And the scene on the cliff was fantastic.

Oh, I like that. I never considered that the kid was wearing a mask. I just thought that it was a representation of fear and how it makes things seem worse than they are.

1) It could be that, haven't they always said that The Doctor is mentally linked to the TARDIS? He may have felt Clara linking herself to The TARDIS.

2) It was probably when Clara pointed out that The Doctor didn't want to admit that he's scared of the dark. He realised that she was right, and yeah I imagine trust also played a part.

3) There is no answer to that. There may have been a creature, there may not have been. Either way whatever you decide is up to you. I personally don't think there was anything, but you never know.

Why would they call him "The Doctor"? He hadn't decided that name yet. So they would have to say his real name, revealing it in the process.

So overall Clara has:

Jumped into The Doctor's timestream and saved him from every point in his life.

Helped The Doctor recover from the loss of the Ponds (and that was just an echo of her).

Convinced the Doctor to save Gallifrey.

Convinced the Time Lords to give him a new regeneration cycle.

And now she's comforted a child Doctor when he was scared of the dark.

This woman is his guardian angel! Please god Moffat, let nothing bad come to her!

I think Gatiss is more in charge with Sherlock. Moffat just writes an episode and assists Mark with the overall storyline.

I totally agree with you, but please remember that not every fan who's been only watching since 2005 thinks like this. I have never seen the classics (Gasp! I know, I really want to, but money's tight right now and I'm not reverting to watching illegally) and I know how flexible the series is.

In fact I'd go as far as to say that the style that Capaldi has brought us is much better than what I grew up watching (not to say I don't still love Tennant and Eccleston).

You have obviously not understood the episode so allow me to explain.

Now, Listen (couldn't resist)

The episode has no real meaning other than The Doctor's fear of the dark. This wasn't just an average episode where the day needs saving, no, this was much more. This was a character piece, a character piece for The Doctor.

The Doctor is scared of the dark and wants to justify it. So he creates a theory that there is something living in the dark, tries to experiment it and what could be evidence to his theory could also just be ordinary things:

A monster in the sheets or a kid playing a prank?

An invisible spectre writing on the chalkboard or The Doctor doing so, then forgetting?

A door being opened my a demon, or an airlock opening after being unlocked?

Orson's monster or an irrational fear from being alone?

The episode wasn't to be scary, it just appeared so to portray The Doctor's irrational fear. And at the end it's revealed that his theory began with Clara comforting The Doctor as a child. To which he believed was a dream. Clara told him that he was scared and that it was okay to be, and one day he will return to the barn he was in more scared than ever (War Doctor scared to kill the Time Lords and Daleks).

The episode was genius because it was so unique. It has allowed us to have a better glimpse at The Doctor's character.

I think that it was a kid playing a prank. But if you think about it, it may have been a real monster. The door opening could have been a monster or just simply the screwdriver did it. The chalk writing "LISTEN" could have been a creature, or the Doctor doing it.

It's ambiguous, we don't know. Are the Doctor fears irrational, or are they justified? Was there a monster or not? Who knows? WHO knows?

No matter how good this episode is, it may end up being underrated by the masterpiece we have just witnessed. But it looks fantastic, hopefully Thompson can deliver with the help of the man who just gave us that masterpiece we have just witnessed.

So I'm assuming that The War Doctor will be mentioned.

As for bonus 1: that's a Tic Tac Toe cipher I belive. Never thought I'd ever be able to apply that knowledge. Yay.

Interesting... The Moment and The War Doctor. Is Listen associated with DotD by any chance? That's the question.

The change of tone is good for this episode. Placing RoS before Listen (which is potentially dark judging by the trailer) makes Listen seem darker by comparison to RoS. And having a light episode allows fans and casual veiwers to ease into Capaldi's era easier.

Clara's travelled with The Doctor for years. And unfortunately a side effect is that she may get used to stuff like that. Remember when she saw the mutilated remains of the soldiers in Cold War?

He likely did. It just wasn't shown. To have two 'heaven scenes' in one episode would be a little annoying. They probably also showed Gretchen's one because showing Ross's would have slowed the pace of that scene.
