Not much to say. I love Doctor Who and Sherlock. And I want to one day be an Astronomer and/or an Actor.
I was going to say. I think it's a classic, definitely up there with Blink, Waters of Mars and Girl in the Fireplace for me.

I'm a little worried this episode might fall under the 'overshadowed' episodes catagory with it between Flatline and the finale.

Yeah, she punched 11 twice and nobody batted an eyelid. Donna also slapped him... Multiple times.

I suppose I'll go with MotOE because I anticipated it for 4 years, and it delivered wonderfully.

I imagine we have to wait for the soundtrack. Although one youtuber called it "Just the Doctor" which I quite like.

Series 8 so far:
Mummy on the Orient Express 10/10
Kill the Moon 10/10
Into the Dalek 9/10
Deep Breath 9/10
Time Heist 8/10
The Caretaker 8/10
Robot of Sherwood 7/10
Been a hell of a series, that's for sure. And Forest, Water, Heaven look amazing so I doubt we can expect anything less than 7 this year :D
I honestly cannot believe that, after a 2nd viewing, I'm voting 10/10 for a third time in a row. This honestly has never happened before. I mean 10/10s are relatively rare, and there have been 3 in a row for me.

7/8 I'd say. I don't think she is going, after all why would you ever listen to tabloid rubbish. But that said, I'm sticking with 7/8 because you can never be certain when it comes to the Troll King that is Moffat.

From the quote in Forest, could you say the Doctor has warmed up to Danny a bit. He seems to reply to his question with civility (that a word?) and not a hostile "shut up, PE!"
I'd like to see a companion from the past. It would be quite interesting to see the writers make contemporary locations seem just as amazing as other planets through her eyes.

Only downside was that the whole ''misunderstood villain' e.g the mummy being a solider has been done too often. I'd like an episode when the advertised villain is just plain bad.
I think that might be a bit too far, even for 12.

From that "awful singer"?
Nope, from the singer you don't particularly like. But others do, so don't describe her so objectively.

So to clarify Foxes is singing a jazz cover of 'Don't stop me now' by Queen whilst Peter Capaldi is solving the mystery of an Egyptian Mummy loose on the Orient Express... in Space?
Is Foxes reminding anyone else of Cleopatra slightly? Or is it just me?

It is an interesting choice. I can't wait to hear her take on it! My only problem would be with a song that popular, it'll be hard to please everybody.

I couldn't help but giggle at that.
Hmm, an onscreen clock? That seems quite interesting.
He'd be great in the series. But if so he should play a new character (recurring) because casting him as the Master, like some have suggested, would just feel too much of a stunt cast.
If he's a fan then he would ask for much.
It's something to complain about, wether there is a point or not. You should know Internet trolls by now.
Not all off the people complaining about that are trolls, mind you. But an awful lot are.

Ok, I cannot contain my excitement for this. COME ON SATURDAY!
1) Capaldi's outfit looks so... Doctor. Not that his usual one doesn't (as long as it's not pokka dots).
2) 8th image, is it me or does that guy in the right look like Einstein?
3) Frank Skinner on the TARDIS! :D Is he like the one off companion? I'd very much like that.
4) This looks so 20s. It's gorgeous!
5) That Mummy looks terrifying. The visuals this series have been spectacular!
6) This episode looks very Voyage of the Damned meets Midnight. I loved them both so this should be a treat.
7) There is a soldier in the episode it seems, 12 + soldier = we know what's coming.
8) Foxes looks pretty.
9) 4th image, is the Doctor on the phone, wired to his coat?
10) didn't want to end it on an odd number.

How to explain the laws of physics being broken in Doctor Who:
Doctor Who is set in a parallel universe to ours so the laws of physics can be different.
Anyone agree? That's how I explain it. I mean faster then light travel has been done millions of times on Who. And that breaks the laws of physics.

Well Caecillous + Frobisher and Danny + Orson could just be explained as descendants. But 12 and Caecillous may get an explanation in the finale.

That was painful to read. I mean, I accept that you don't like him. But there is a fine line between critisism and that. That was ranting, and as for that horribly stereotypical final paragraph I'm astounded to find a comment like this here and not Youtube.
The moon wasn't really alive in the same way the others were. The moon was an egg whereas the others were the actual organisms. And no, not all. Just some.

I think it's better for a solo writer to do it. He'll have more original ideas (even if Moffat came up with the premise.)
Lundvik did tell him to, but he pointed out that he couldn't interfere.

The Doctor Who website isn't showing Jenna Coleman under the cast list for Mummy on the Orient Express. So I guess she isn't in it.
That's what I'm assuming. I wish they pointed that out, really confused me.
Alien biology, we don't know how they work. The 2nd moon could have expanded after being laid, we didn't see it actually lay it. And I like to think with the creatures species it's one at a time. An organism is born and lays an egg the flies off. The egg is already fertilised (asexual reproduction) and takes 100 000 years to prepare. Then the egg hatches and the cycle begins again.
Since everybody else is doing it:
Series 8 (so far) overall 8.75/10
Whilst I loved the episode (10/10) there is one small thing that annoys me. How the hell does Courtney become President of the USA?! I thought they had a rule stating that you had to be born and raised in America to be president.
Remember the whole Obama birth certificate thing?
I imagine some CGI would have been used. The rubber spiders in Extra barely moved their legs.
Well, it's time for him to prove himself. I'm sure he'll be fine.

I honestly didn't think Listen could be beaten this year, but by god it was!
And I'm glad Courtney didn't die. Everybody guessed it so it wouldn't have been as much of a twist.
A Missy scene after the bloke on the surface was killed would have been nice, but oh well.

Oops. Yep, you're right. I did miss out series 2.
Without further ado... The missing paragraph.
Series 2 (between Series 5 and 3)
A series with interesting stories, and David Tennant making the role his own. Great episodes like Girl in the Fireplace and Satin Pit were countered by the likes of Love and Monsters and Fear Her. The Cybermen were brought back well, as was the return of Sarah Jane and the rise of Mickey the badass. The finale was good with the Cybermen until they shoved the Daleks in there, making the whole thing just a mess of Dalek v Cybermen.

Spectacular article Patrick. I'm sure we have some whoppers coming up. I'm interested to learn more about Flatline. Is seems very Listen-y in the way that we know little about it really. Forest of the Night too. And with UNIT in the finale, soldiers that the Doctor has always relied on, more or less. It's time to see where Twelve's prejudice comes from.
It's also great to see new blood tackle the show this year. A fresh mind is always needed to keep the show as great as it is. And with the reviews for Kill the Moon, newbie Peter Harness seems to be a great choice.
