Surprised to see the results of the Blink vs. Listen poll - given the comments, I assumed it would be nearly 50/50. Either way, the winning episode would certainly have deserved it.

I deliberately put off voting until pretty much the last possible day. In the end I went for Listen. Blink is still amazing and of course infinitely rewatchable, but I feel every time I rewatch Listen, I get something new out of it that I hadn't noticed before, or ask myself more questions that I hadn't considered before.




Basically, Blink is like one of the best steaks you've ever had in your life, while Listen is a fine cheese that gets even better as it ages.

My only complaint about the Teller's appearance is the stubby little tail-thing. That was a bit weird.

Well, that ended up being pretty clever! And I have now seen Peter Capaldi in what appears to be a zippered hoodie. 9/10

Despite the massive clue in the name of the episode, I hadn't actually figured out that time travel was going to play a part in the heist until I read the article. In hindsight - it seems a bit obvious :P Rather looking forward to this one.

Blink - a Doctor-lite, companion-lite episode that marks the debut of perhaps the most enduring and recognized NuWho monsters, with some great supporting characters, a "wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey" plot at its best, super creepy atmosphere, and some surprisingly touching moments to boot. 


Listen - less of a traditional episode and more of a brilliant psychological study of the main character of the show, complemented by some properly scary scenes, surprises around every corner, and THAT fantastic ending - all while seemingly adding bits and pieces to the series' story arc. 

The agony of indecision is real.

The Hinchcliffe/Holmes era of DW is my absolute favorite. I am mightily pleased by that one statement. :P

The Teller may be one of the best-looking, best-realized monsters in Doctor Who history. By the looks of it, anyway.

After seeing a picture of the actor who played the mysterious figure under the sheets...I'm inclined to agree, to be honest.

Okay, so it took me a while to admit this but Listen is a 10/10. It's one of the best episodes we've had for years.

I'd like to see what an actual, trained psychologist would think of the episode. I'd be very intrigued to see what patterns and themes they would recognize. Unlikely, but it would make for some wonderful observations and discussions.

Gonna hold off on rating this one for now. It needs quite a bit of time to digested. Was it good? Of course it was. Is it a classic. No. Or at least not right now. I have a feeling that this will be an episode that slowly but surely rises through the list as more people look back on it, years from now.

The best episodes of Doctor Who leave you thinking long after the episode has finished. This is one of those episodes.

As an American, I can generally understand him quite fine. Every now and then I might miss a line - but that's just a consequence of watching an episode the first time, and not the fault of anyone's accent in particular. In any case, a rewatch is always the solution.

I really liked that scene with the Sheriff. A bad guy doing bad things out of pure badness.

To be fair, the Doctor did notice the abnormally sunny climate, which I doubt anyone else would've picked up if he hadn't pointed it out. During the scene where the Sheriff is interrogating Clara, I got the impression that she was just trying to take advantage of the situation - like, indeed, just about every companion would when faced with no other option.

I actually quite liked the ending of Hide, because instead of providing answers it really just opened up many more questions.

I didn't like the title change either, but you bring up a good point. The fact that it was a pun on "Robin of Sherwood" actually did get me thinking that he may have been one of them for a while.

There's more to the coincidence than just that - in Series 7, the first three episodes had Daleks, dinosaurs, and robots in historical settings. In Series 8, the first three episodes...er. Yes.

Now that the Series 7 "blockbuster" format has run its course and all the specials and major opener episodes are gone for a while, I think that feeling will subside pretty soon.

Definitely true. The death of Journey's brother would probably have been a bit more effective if we had got to know him for a few minutes before he, you know, exploded.
